PUNE, India - The report "Microcrystalline Cellulose Market by Application (Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics & Personal Care, and Others), by Raw Material Source (Wood based and Non-Wood based) and by Region - Trends & Forecasts to 2020", defines and segments the global MCC market with analysis and forecasting in terms of volume and value. The Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) Market is expected to reach around USD 1,080 Million by 2020 at a projected to witness a CAGR of 7.2% between 2015 and 2020

The MCC market is projected to witness a CAGR of 7.2% between 2015 and 2020, in terms of value. It is expected to witness substantial growth due to the increased acceptance of MCC as a pharmaceutical excipient and the high demand of MCC in processed food industry. MCC is extensively used in food products such as baked foods, dairy products, desserts, frozen foods, and others as bulking agent and fat substitute, helping in enhancing mouthfeel, body, and consistency of the food product.

MCC has applications in the pharmaceutical industry as it exhibits chemical inertness and lack of taste and odour.  As an excipient, MCC is used widely in almost every kind of oral dosage like pellets, tablets, capsules, sachets, and others. Development of multifunctional excipients and co-processed excipients is also expected to play a vital role in market growth during the forecast period. This increase in demand can be attributed to the need to address the solubility issues of recently developed Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API). In the cosmetics & personal care segment, it is used as a texturizer and thickening agent. MCC is also used in instrumentations and industrial applications.

North America is the largest market for MCC. The food processing and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries in the region are the major end users of MCC. The European market also contributes significantly to the global market and is also the major market of MCC for food & beverage application. However, Asia-Pacific is projected to witness highest growth of MCC between 2015 and 2020. Presence of developing economies such as China, India, and others makes the region the most promising market for MCC. Moreover, many North American and European pharmaceutical drugs and excipient manufacturers find it more cost-effective to outsource their manufacturing processes to Asia-Pacific manufacturers or set up their own manufacturing facilities in the region.
