As the Micro Crystalline Cellulose is sourced from Cellulose, their price trend closely coincide. Micro Crystalline Cellulose exhibited low oscillating price trend throughout the discussed period. Reduced upstream costs impacted the cost pressure; also, since the supply chains and freight mediums all started normalizing, it affected the MCC price trend considerably. Overall, muted market sentiments were observed with some temporary reverse fluctuations.

Analyst Insight

Production Processes

  • Production of Micro Crystalline Cellulose from the Depolymerization of Cellulose

MCC is a partially depolymerized cellulose formed from the α-cellulose nucleus, created as a paste from fibrous crop tissue and polymerized with hydrochloric alcohol. MCC can be synthesised using a variety of methods, including reactive extrusion, enzyme-mediated, steam explosion, and acid hydrolysis. In most cases, it is made by spray-drying a neutralised liquid slurry of hydrolyzed cellulose.
