The emerging demand for microcrystalline cellulose in the pharmaceutical sector is one of the factors fueling market demand. It serves as the key constituent compound in the formulation of tablets and capsules. In addition, microcrystalline cellulose finds its application in fillers, disintegrating agents, anti-sticking agents, adsorbents, and capsule diluents in the pharmaceutical industry. The demand for pharmaceutical products in emerging economies such as BRICS and MIST is expected to increase, owing to the presence of a large population base, the rising prosperity, and increased life expectancy. Furthermore, the market for processed food is anticipated to grow in the Asia Pacific, due to rapid urbanization, the growing economy, and the surging female working population.

In terms of revenue, the wood-based category is the dominating category in the source segment, with a market share of 86.68%, in the forecast period. Wood remains the utmost favored source for microcrystalline cellulose production, leading to profitable openings for the companies. The high consumption of processed food & pharmaceutical products majorly drives the demand for wood-based microcrystalline cellulose.

On the other hand, the non-wood based segment is anticipated to grow at the CAGR of around 6.70% in terms of revenue, during the forecast period. The growing agricultural waste and fast-growing plants have been the major growth factors of the non-wood source segment. There are also growing demands for cost-effective and environmental-friendly processing methods for non-wood based raw materials.

However, the availability of substitute products is anticipated to restrain the growth of the market. Pharmaceutical, food & beverage, and personal care industries have been using magnesium stearate and carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) as substitutes for microcrystalline cellulose. Furthermore, the higher price of microcrystalline cellulose has forced the manufacturers to opt for substitute products.

The report scope of the global microcrystalline cellulose market covers the segmentation analysis of source and application.

Market by Source:

  • Wood-based
  • Non-wood-based

Market by Application:

  • Pharmaceutical
  • Food & Beverage
  • Cosmetics & Personal Care
  • Others

On the basis of geography, the global microcrystalline cellulose market has been segmented into four major regions:

  • North America: the United States and Canada
  • Europe: the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Belgium, Poland, and the Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific: China, Japan, India, South Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia & New Zealand,  and the Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of World: Latin America, the Middle East & Africa

With regard to revenue, Europe held the largest share of 36.36% in 2019. This region has been the focal point of microcrystalline cellulose consumption, as consumers in this region prefer low-fat dairy products. Furthermore, the consumption of liquid detergents is high in this region, in which microcrystalline cellulose are used as thickening agents and anti-redeposition agents.

Also, in terms of revenue, Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region with a CAGR of 6.30% in the forecast period. The surging demand for microcrystalline cellulose from the developing nations, such as India and China, is expected to facilitate the growth of the market. In addition, improving economic conditions, changing lifestyles, such as consumption of processed food and low-fat ice cream, and other dairy products, along with the increasing awareness about the benefits of consuming low-fat products are the major driving factors of the market.

The major key players involved in the global microcrystalline cellulose market are:

  • DowDuPont
  • Rayonier Advanced Material
  • FMC Corporation
  • Others

In December 2018, Roquette announced the execution of the acquisition of a majority stake in Crest Cellulose, from Pravesha Industries, which is a major Pharma packaging company in India.

Key findings of the global microcrystalline cellulose market:

  • Europe dominates the global microcrystalline cellulose market in terms of revenue, and garnered the largest market share of around 36.36% in 2019.
  • The Asia Pacific microcrystalline cellulose market is anticipated to project the highest CAGR of 6.30%, in terms of revenue, during the forecast period, 2020-2028.
  • The advances in packaging, due to the use of microcrystalline cellulose, are boosting the overall market.
  • The non-wood category in the source segment is projected to record a CAGR of 6.70% during the forecasted period.
