Competitive vendor landscape

There are several small and big players that constitute the global nitrocellulose market. Global vendors such as DowDuPont, Nitro Quimica, Synthesia, and Tembec are the leaders in the market. In the paint additives market, several regional vendors are present in APAC. The emergence of domestic vendors is because of factors such as the growing middle class and rising industrialization and urbanization in developing economies such as India, Indonesia, Brazil, and China. Operation cost, price, economies of scale, product quality, and innovation are some of the key factors for competition among the vendors. For survival in the competitive market, some vendors possess superior technological and financial resources.

According to Mohammed Shakeel Iqbal, a lead analyst at Technavio for textile, fiber, and composites research, “One of the factors driving the growth of the market is the abundance of cellulose and simple manufacturing process of nitrocellulose. Cellulose is produced by plants and due to its unique structure and multiple functions, it is used in several products. The main sources of cellulose apart from wood are plant fibers such as cotton, hemp, flax, and jute. Cellulose is organic, it is found abundantly and, it is a crucial polysaccharide. It reacts easily with acids and bases and is one of the key raw materials used in the production of nitrocellulose.”
