The MCA market is expected to witness high growth in emerging economies, such as China, India, and Indonesia. Factors such as increasing disposable income and changing lifestyles of the middle-class population in these countries are expected to fuel the demand for personal care products, textiles, detergents, crop protection chemicals, and medicines. The growth of these industries propels the consumption of carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), which consequently drives the demand for MCA in the aforementioned economies. Additionally, the growth of the building & construction industry drives the consumption of CMC and thioglycolic acid (TGA), which, in turn, drives the demand for MCA in the Asia Pacific region.

Based on product form, the liquid segment is projected to register the highest growth rate. The high growth in the use of liquid MCA is due to its easy miscibility as an intermediate, and efficient operation. Increased R&D activities to develop new and innovative products for use across a wide range of application areas are expected to boost the growth of the MCA market during the forecast period.

The surfactant segment is projected to be the fastest-growing application segment between 2017 and 2022. Surfactant-based face wash, gel, and hair cream, among other personal care products, are replacing conventional products, owing to their cleansing ability, ease of usage, and customization. The increasing use of MCA in the manufacturing of amphoteric surfactants, such as betaines and imidazolines, is expected to boost the surfactant market during the forecast period. Increasing the adoption of surfactants in the cosmetic industry in developing countries, such as India, China, Indonesia, and Brazil, is expected to drive the demand for MCA in this application. Increasing disposable income and changing lifestyles of consumers are key growth drivers for the surfactants market in emerging countries.
