Monochloroacetic Acid Market: Key Findings of the Report

  • Growing applications of CMC: Carboxymethylcellulose or CMC is a clear and highly viscous solution, synthesized through the alkali-catalyzed reaction of cellulose with monochloroacetic acid. It finds various applications in the food and beverage industry, as an emulsifier, viscosity modifier and thickener, among others. Used in reduced-fat and gluten-free food products, CMC offers a rich mouthfeel in food and beverage products. Additionally, CMC is also used in other industries, including oil and gas, industrial manufacturing, ophthalmology, and non-food products, such as laxatives, paper products, diet pills, toothpastes, paints and gels.
  • Growing demand for food: Products in the monochloroacetic acid market are used to produce CMC, which finds applications in the food and beverage industry. Liquid compounds of monochloroacetic acid are also used in the agrochemical industry for the production of active substances necessary for the production of pesticides and herbicides. The growing demand for processed food is generating a growing need for high purity CMCs. Likewise, the growing demand for increasing yields while protecting plants from pests and infections is also driving the growth of the monochloroacetic acid market.
