“The MCC market is projected to register a CAGR of 7.0% from 2019 to 2024, in terms of value”
The microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) market is projected to grow from USD 938 million in 2019 to USD 1,315 million by 2024, at a CAGR of 7.0%, between 2019 and 2024. MCC is widely used in pharmaceutical, food & beverage, and cosmetic & personal care applications. As it is chemically inert and not absorbed in the human body, it is widely used in the pharmaceutical and food & beverage applications as a thickener, stabilizer, binder, dispersant, and bulking & anti-caking agent. The growth of the pharmaceutical application has also helped increase the demand for MCC as it is widely used in the form of excipient. Apart from this, the significant demand from the emerging economies is one of the major opportunities in the MCC market. However, the availability of substitutes for specific food & beverage and pharmaceutical applications restrains the growth of the market.

“The non-wood segment is projected to register the highest CAGR from 2019 to 2024, in terms of both value and volume”
Non-wood-based MCC is being increasingly used in the MCC market, primarily because of the high demand for non-wood-based MCC from various applications, such as pharmaceutical and food & beverage. The cost of MCC produced from non-wood-based source is very low compared to the wood-based MCC as the raw material used for the manufacture of non-wood-based MCC is basically agricultural waste, which is available at very low prices.

“Pharmaceutical to be the fastest-growing application of MCC market during the forecast period”
The MCC market in the pharmaceutical application is witnessing a high growth rate. The growth of the global MCC market is dependent on the growth of the pharmaceutical excipient market. MCC acts as a filler, binder, disintegrant, suspending agent, lubricant, and glidant in pharmaceutical manufacturing. It is used in the direct compression method as it reduces the production cost. MCC is an essential component in every form of oral dosage, which includes pellets, capsules, tablets, and sachets.
