As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Sakshi Bhoyar, “The Cellulose Powder Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during forecast period 2022-2029. Cellulose powder is a white-colored, tasteless, odorless powder. It is available in various particle sizes, such as a granular dense or free-flowing fine powder to a non-flowing, coarse, and fluffy powder. It is obtained from the purified specialty grades of wood pulp. Cellulose is available in different forms such as microcrystalline cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose, and cellulose powder. Cellulose powder is manufactured by cooking raw plant fiber in various chemicals. It gives different texture to food items, differing from liquid to glue form.

Key factors that are anticipated to fuel the demand for the global Cellulose Powder market during the forecast period are growing production and usage of cellulose paper and growing demand for cellulose powder in animal feed and pet food products. Conversely, lack of awareness of cellulose powder hampers the growth of the cellulose powder market. Growing demand for natural skin care and personal care products and increasing demand for cellulose powder in leather and textile industry are creating opportunities in the market.
