In China, there are 12 large-scale manufacturers specializing in the production of carboxymethyl cellulose, accounting for more than 80% of the total domestic production.
The price of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is mainly affected by raw materials. The main raw materials are refined cotton, soda ash, chloroacetic acid, caustic soda, and alcohol.
Recently, the price of raw materials has risen, and the price of products has been at a historical high, and the supply is in short supply.
Relevant personnel of Xuanhai Chemical have researched and judged that the price of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is expected to fall in the first half of 2022 and remain in a relatively stable state.
