Surged demand in pharmaceutical sector fuels growth

Booming pharmaceutical sector is poised to encourage stakeholders to infuse investments in MCC landscape. MCC is being marketed in pharmaceutical industry as a binding agent with disintegrant and a stability enhancer.

Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) market is being used as a part of the direct pressure of majority of medications and has been helping in reducing overheads, and capital cost. In a bid to expand their portfolios, manufacturers are incorporating MCC in oral fluids, tablets and organoleptic upgrades, and nutraceuticals.

Fillers are being used for tablet manufacturing process such as wet granulation, direct compression and dry procession. Prominently, pharma companies are using MCC to boost uniform granulation.

Use of MCC as an excipient to enhance solubility, bioavailability and modifying drug release is likely to fuel the growth in MCC industry.

Trends in food and beverage industry

Propelled by calorie reduction and fiber enrichment, microcrystalline cellulose has become a highly desirable additive in breads, cakes & pastries, biscuits, beverages, and snacks. MCC tends to act as a stand-in for higher calorie ingredients and is said to be present in reduced fat products. As MCC adds body and bulk to food without adding calories, demand for the additives is poised to surge in 2020 and beyond.

Several food chains have been using MCC to bind and mix with water and use it as an emulsifier. Food and beverage manufacturers have expanded their portfolios by reaping benefits from MCC to unite two stubborn liquids such as oil and water. These companies have been using MCC to keep canned soups and sauces in a semi-liquid and stable state.

Rising trend for nutraceutical diets is likely to have a positive influence on the business outlook. Potential application of MCC in food and nutraceutical functions is setting the trend and it is going in line with its functional ingredient in food, such as dairy products, meat products, beverages, filling and confectionary.

Opportunities in non-wood-based MCC

Even though wood-based MCC is gaining momentum, decrease in the availability of wood has not gone well with the segment. Popularity of non-wood source of MCC in emerging economies in APAC, Latin America and MEA offers opportunities to expand penetration in untapped areas.

It is worth noting that agriculture residues are being perceived as an ideal alternative material to take the place of wood. Non-wood-based materials are being developed as an MCC source, such as corn cob, oil palm fronds, sugar cane bagasse, among others. Non-wood-based MCC is poised to gain substantial share in MCC market.

Challenges pertaining to overheads

Critics claim that MCC is nothing but a redundant filler and costs higher than starches and sugar. Moreover, MCC is not derived from GMO plants and may lead to mild side effects.

Versatility of MCC in pharmaceutical and food & beverage sectors has augured well for manufacturers eyeing to expand their footprints. Soaring traction towards MCC to boost shelf life in food and use as an ingredient in pharmaceutical products will be witnessed through 2026. In the latest research report compiled by Global Market Insights, Inc., microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) market size is set to surpass US$1.35 billion by 2026.
