Global Acetate Tow Market Outlook 2016-2021

Global Acetate Tow Market Outlook 2016-2021

Acetate tow, or cellulose acetate tow, is a kind of man-made fiber which made up of cellulose and acetic anhydride under catalytic esterification in sulfuric acid. The structural formula can be expressed as: [(C6H7O2)(OOCCH3)x(OH)3-x]n. When x=2.4 it stand for cellulose acetate which actic acid content is 54.8%. Acetate tow is not easy to catch fire, so it can equally be used in a series of applications like cigarette filters and felt-tips as well as for the controlled release of substances such as air fresheners and perfume dispensers.

Acetate tow production, which measures output worldwide, was expected to reach 662 k tons in 2016 with a drop of -2.83% from its year-earlier level. The global acetate tow market size is estimated to decline from USD 4415.41 million in 2011 to USD 4235.14 million by 2016, at an estimated CAGR of -0.8% between 2011 and 2016. The decrease is due mainly to the continuing declines in the global demand for cigarette products.
