Recent developments in the pharmaceutical industry and increased demand from emergingeconomiesof theAsia-Pacific region are expected to boost the growth of the global microcrystalline cellulose market.
Allied Market Research recently published a report, titled, "Microcrystalline Cellulose Marketby Source Type (Wood-based and Non-wood based) andApplication (Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage, Cosmetics & Personal Care, and Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018-2025". The report offers detailed insights on the top investment pockets, drivers & opportunities, changing trends, key market segments, tope investment pockets, and competitive landscape.

Recent developments in the pharmaceutical industry, especially extensive utilization of microcrystalline cellulose as an excipient and increased demand for processed foods drive the growth of the global microcrystalline cellulose market. However, availability of substitutes for microcrystalline cellulose such as magnesium stearate and carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) hampers the market growth. On the contrary, increased demand for microcrystalline cellulose in the emerging economies of the Asia-Pacific and Latin America, Middle East and Africa (LAMEA) regions is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market players in the upcoming years.
The non-wood-based segment is estimated to grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.7% through 2025, owing to the economic feasibility of non-wood-based sources as compared to other sources for obtaining microcrystalline cellulose. However, the wood-based segment held the largest share in the market in 2017, contributing about 87% of the total revenue. This is attributed to the fact that wood-derived raw materials are widely available and synthesis of microcrystalline cellulose is easier from such wood-based source.
Cosmetics & personal care segment to lead the market
Cosmetics & personal care segment garnered more than 40% share of the market revenue in 2017 and is projected to dominate the market during the study period. However, the food & beverage segment would manifest the fastest CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period, owing to the increased use of microcrystalline cellulose for the production of low-fat dairy products. The pharmaceutical segment would grow at a steady rate during the forecast period.
The microcrystalline cellulose market in Europe contributed more than one-third of the total market revenue in 2017. It is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period due to high consumption of pharmaceutical products and processed foods. However, the Asia-Pacific region would register the fastest CAGR of 6.2% from 2018 to 2025, owing to increased consumption of low-fat dairy products in the region. The other regions analyzed in the report include North America and LAMEA.
