Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) refers to purified and depolymerized cellulose with shorter crystalline polymer chains. It is commonly used as a filler, disintegrant and bulking, binding, lubricating agent in drug formulations. MCC is manufactured through controlled partial hydrolysis, purification and drying of high purity wood cellulose and other fibrous plant material. It can also be commercially synthesized using reactive extrusion, enzyme-mediated synthesis, steam explosion and acid hydrolysis. It acts as a stability enhancer and auxiliary suspending agent. It is added to tablets, oral fluids, medicinal gels and chewable and mouth dissolving tablets and nutraceuticals for prolonged drug and nutrient release.
Significant growth in the pharmaceutical industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the widespread adoption of MCC in the manufacturing of food and beverage products is providing a thrust to the market growth. MCC is a chemically inert and tasteless compound, which is used to produce low-fat dairy products, such as frozen yogurt, whipped cream and ice cream. It is extensively used as an anti-caking and suspending agent, stabilizer and a substitute for unhealthy fats and oils to achieve the desired consistency and texture in baked products. Additionally, the increasing utilization of degradable bio-composites and reinforced polylactic acid for 3D printing is acting as another growth-inducing factor. MCC acts as an additive for the 3D fabrication of building and construction components with enhanced tensile and thermal strength and minimal waste and power consumption. Other factors, including the increasing demand for non-wood-based MCC manufactured using agricultural waste, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
