Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is a suitable ingredient in various end-use industries owing to its non-degradability in digestion. The product is classified into two groups, wood based derived from wood pulp and non-wood based which formed through fungi, bacteria, algae or marine animals.
Microcrystalline cellulose production was over 20 kilo tons in 2015 and application includes food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, paints & coatings, and personal care industry. Pharmaceuticals led the application segment and accounted for over 32% of the overall market share. MCC is widely used as a texturizer, emulsifier and as an extender in pharmaceuticals. The product is compatible with every dosage type such as pellets, capsules, sachets, and tablets.
MCC is ideal for pharmaceuticals as it is taste & odor less and also exhibits chemical inertness. Multifunctional excipients development and co-processed excipients is predicted to favor industry growth. Moreover, need to address solubility issues raised by Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients is another reason to increase product adoption.
Food & beverages is the second largest application segment, MCC is used as anticaking and bulking agent owing to its insolubility in water. Food & beverages application includes desserts, dairy products, frozen food, and baked goods. Moreover, it also acts as a fat alternative, and also helps to enhance and maintain food consistency. Global food & beverage market size was over USD 15 trillion in 2015; change in consumer eating behavior due to hectic lifestyle are considering factors to witness growth in this application segment.
