Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC)is used as an additive commonly. It is also called industrial monosodium glutamate and broadly used in industrial production.It enormously enhances various production areas. Hence, on a global scale it is widely used & most consumable of the cellulose type.
Carboxymethyl cellulose is a powdery substance, non-toxic and easily soluble in cold & hot water and insoluble in organic solvents, become viscous liquids after dilution. Temperature plays a major role in its viscosity and is adjusted according to the temperature. Due to its unique features, it is largely demanded in storage and transportation applications.
CMC is widely used in foods as a viscosity modifier or thickener. It is a constituent of several non-food products like, laxatives, diet pills, water-based paints, detergents, textile sizing, toothpaste and various paper products. CMC is widely used in pharmaceuticals as a thickening agent. For instance, it is used as a lubricant in lubricating eye-drops and also in the oil-drilling industry where it acts as a viscosity modifier & a water retention agent.

The major raw materials used in manufacture of carboxymethyl cellulose include plant derived cellulose, monochloroacetic acid and caustic soda. It is extensively used as thickener, stabilizer, binder and dispersant in various applications such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals& cosmetics, oil & gas, detergents and paper processing.
The key driving factors responsible for the growth of carboxymethyl cellulose market includes growing demand for low-fat and gluten-free frozen desserts for carboxymethyl cellulose. Carboxymethyl cellulose helps in maintaining fat content in food. However, emergence of Guar gum as a substitute in various applications. Guar gum being organic by nature is used widely in majority of the applications and is an added advantage for the product to substitute for CMC in several applications.
