Microcrystalline Cellulose Market worth around $1.35 bn by 2026

  • Published Date: November 29, 2019

Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) Market size estimated to cross USD 1.35 billion by 2026; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Changing drug formulation to escalate revenue generation

Excellent compressibility properties of microcrystalline cellulose support its application in the drug formulation for the medical sector. It is preferred for multiple oral dosage products including tablets, capsules, sachets and pellets. The product finds application in baking methods as an anti-caking agent to improve water retention and reduction of food calories. The ingredients in the food sector has changed considerably with changing consumer preferences towards low fat and nutritious diet. MCC is included in multiple nutrition products and widely used in packaged food items along with meat products.

Increasing manufacturing cost along with availability of multiple product alternatives will limit the industry growth over the projected timeframe. Substitutes including pectin and xanthan gum pose a threat to MCC with their increasing usage in food and drug production. Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and guar gum are the cost-effective substitutes that will restrict the MCC market size.
