Natural Polymers

Natural polymers group consists of naturally occurring polymers and chemical modifications of these polymers. Cellulose, starch, lignin, chitin, and various polysaccharides are included in this group. These materials and their derivatives offer a wide range of properties and applications. Natural polymers tend to be readily biodegradable, although the rate of degradation is generally inversely proportional to the extent of chemical modification for Polymeric Materials. US demand for natural polymers is forecast to expand 6.9 percent annually to $4.6 billion in 2016. Cellulose ethers, led by methyl cellulose, will remain the largest product segment. This study analyzes the $3.3 billion US natural polymer industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by market.
