Cellulose acetate finds application in a variety of products such as textile fibers, cigarette filters, wound dressings, absorbent wipes and clothes, personal hygiene, photography, playing cards and magnetic computer tape among others. It is used in apparels such as buttons, sunglasses and spectacle frames, dresses, linings, home furnishings, upholstery, slip covers and draperies. It is a popular bio-plastic because it is cheap and easily available. It is environment friendly, renewable and poses no health threats.
Cigarette tow is the dominants end-use application worldwide followed by textile applications and others. China is the dominant consumer of cellulose acetate driven by its use in the cigarette filter market. Cigarette filter applications are decreasing in U.S. and Europe owing to rising awareness about hazards of smoking and stringent government legislations and regulation enforcements. Surface coatings are estimated to be the fastest growing application market for cellulose acetate. Global demand is expected to be driven by growing consumption of cigarettes in developing countries, demand for longer cigarette filters and shift towards cellulose acetate tow filters from polypropylene cigarette filters.
