Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose (SCMC) is a cellulose derivative with carboxymethyl groups. They are primarily used as their sodium salts and can also be isolated to be used as Methylcellulose (MC). The composition of SCMC depends upon the industry which it is being used in. Though it is a basic chemical comprising of cellulose, Sodium and Carbon, the chemical composition varies depending on the desired property. SCMC is widely used in different industries like Food and Beverages, Personal care, Paints, oil & gas, and others. Its use is warranted because of their desirable properties which include high viscosity, water preservation, good acid resistance and salt resistance.

Based on applications of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, the market is segmented into food & beverage, detergents, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, paints & coatings, pulp & paper, cosmetics & personal care, textile industry, and others. The market is also segmented based various regions such as Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World.

SCMC is used as an additive in drinks, milk products, flouring products and other applications. It is used extensively because it gives desirable properties while safeguarding the health of the consumers, as it is non-toxic and does not trigger allergies. The main use of SCMC is in manufacturing of Ice cream and other dairy product. This is because it can prevent the formation of big crystals in ice cream, retards the melting rate of ice cream and increases its value, thus reducing the amount of raw materials used and consequently, making the manufacturing of ice creams with lesser cost.
