Cellulose acetate is an acetate ester of cellulose. It is manufactured by acetylating cellulose. It is a high performing thermoplastic polymer which has various versatile properties such as good resistance to chemicals, high transparency and high impact and mechanical strength. Also, it is dielectric constant. The report covers application areas such as textile fibers, cigarette filter tow, molding & extrusion, film & sheet casting, surface coating, and others.
Factors such as rising numbers of cigarette consumers in regions such as Asia- Pacific, and consumer preference for low tar cigarettes are driving the growth of the market. Also, recent consumer shift towards longer cigarette filters contributes to the growth of the market. With the increasing number of low tar based cigarette users, cigarette filter with acetate tow has been replacing polypropylene based cigarette filter; this in turn will increase the demand for acetate tows in the years to come. The global market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12.8% during 2014-2019.
