Microcrystalline Cellulose Market Size to Increase Significantly in 2028, Says Reports and Data | Increasing application of monocrystalline cellulose in processed food, cosmetics and personal care products, and in pharmaceuticals are key factors driving market growth
NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Reports and Data has published its latest report titled "Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) Market Size, Share and Industry Analysis, By Source Type (Non-Wood Based, Wood-Based), By End-Use (Binder/Diluent, Bulking Agent, Emulsifiers, Stabilizer, Anti-Caking Agent, Others), By Application (Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage, Cosmetics & Personal Care, Paints & Coatings, Others) And by Region, Forecast to 2028."
According to latest analysis by Reports and Data, the global monocrystalline market size was USD 985.2 million in 2020 and is expected to reach US 1,561.4 million in 2028 and register a revenue CAGR of 5.80% over the forecast period, 2021-2028.
Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) is a naturally occurring polymer and is a commonly used excipient in the pharmaceutical industry. Microcrystalline cellulose has excellent compressibility properties and is widely used in solid forms such as tablets that are hard, but can dissolve quickly, and this has increased its demand in the pharmaceutical sector. MCC is also used in processed food products as texturizer, anti-caking agent, emulsifier, fat substitute, and bulking agent. Increasing awareness regarding benefits of microcrystalline cellulose has further boosted its demand. In cosmetics, microcrystalline cellulose acts as a filler, thickening and emulsifying agent, and is used in a number of hair and skin care products.
Microcrystalline cellulose refers to refined wood pulp and is extensively used in plaque assays to determine viral count and as a viable option in place of carboxymethylcellulose. Over the recent past, extensive R&D has been conducted expand application scope of MCC. Microcrystalline cellulose is a viable alternative to higher calorie ingredients and is one of the most widely used food additives. Addition of MCC to food products can alter or influence texture without interfering with flavor and this has led to increasing adoption in the food and beverages industry. In addition, microcrystalline cellulose adds dietary bulk and body to food without adding calories and this increases the physical satisfaction of consumer without calorie count-related concerns.
High costs associated with microcrystalline cellulose is expected to restrain growth of the market to a certain extent over the forecast period. However, development of newer microcrystalline cellulose-based products with enhanced physical properties to address growing requirements of the food and beverages industry is expected to open up new opportunities for players in the market.
