The wood-based segment is estimated to account for the major market share during the forecast period. 

Wood is the traditional choice of raw material for MCC production. Commercially produced wood pulp used to manufacture MCC is obtained from sources such as softwood woods (gymnosperms) and hardwood (dicotyledons). Gymnosperms include fir trees, spruce trees, pine trees, conifers, cycads, and others. The chemical property of MCC produced from different wood sources varies because of the difference in the composition of alpha-cellulose in different kinds of wood available.

Europe is estimated to be the largest market for microcrystalline cellulose in 2018, in terms of value. 

Europe was the largest MCC market, in terms of value, in 2017. The European region is segmented into Germany, France, the UK, Switzerland, Italy, and Spain, among others.
