Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) Market To Reach USD 1,408.5 Million By 2026 | Reports And Data

Microcrystalline Cellulose Market Size – USD 865.8 Million in 2018, Market Growth - CAGR of 6.0%, MCC Industry Trends –The elevated demand for non-wood-based MCC.

/EIN News/ -- New York, Oct. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The expansion of the pharmaceutical sector, the increasing use of MCC as a pharmaceutical excipient, and the growth of the processed food sectors are some of the factors boosting the microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) market.

The global microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) market is forecast to reach USD 1,408.5 Million by 2026, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Microcrystalline cellulose is a product of cellulose depolymerization. It is tasteless and odorless. The market is projected to witness a considerable growth during the forecast period. Its diverse applications primarily support the growth of the market.

It is mainly used in the pharmaceutical industry wherein it can be applied as a disintegrating agent and pharmaceutical excipient. When compared with the starch or starch derivatives, there are various advantages associated with it that have resulted in its increased preference in the pharmaceutical sector. Its mentionable benefits are, it is easy to disintegrate, i.e., after its entrance in the stomach, the drug is easily dissolved and then absorbed by the body. The cellulose does not get absorbed by the body and it has minimal reactivity with carrying drugs, and hence more secure. In plaque analysis, it also finds application, wherein it is used as an alternative to carboxymethylcellulose, for counting viruses. Within the European Union, the approved uses of the cellulose are as- stabilizer, thickener, emulsifiers. It was granted the E number E460 (i), and primary cellulose was given the number E460.

In regards to region, North America witnesses a prominent market position. The prominent market presence of the region is the result of its mature pharmaceutical industry and continuous growth of the food & beverage sector.
