Global Microbial Cellulose Market Forecast to 2028: Fermented Marvel - Microbial Cellulose Production Advances Fuel Market Growth

Dublin, Sept. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Microbial Cellulose Market Forecast to 2028 - Global Analysis by Application" report has been added to's offering.

The microbial cellulose market is experiencing significant growth, with a projected increase from US$ 20.84 million in 2022 to US$ 41.32 million by 2028. This growth is expected to occur at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.1% from 2022 to 2028. Several key factors are contributing to this growth:

Market Drivers:

  1. Wide Scope of Application: Microbial cellulose, also known as bacterial cellulose (BC), is a versatile biomaterial with various applications. It is synthesized by microorganisms such as bacteria or fungi in the presence of culture media. Its unique properties, including high mechanical strength, crystallinity, and water-holding capacity, make it suitable for applications in food packaging, food and beverage processing, cement additives, wound dressing, and cosmetics.
  2. Increasing Demand in the Healthcare Industry: Microbial cellulose is gaining prominence in the healthcare industry. It has been used in wound-healing devices for severely damaged skin and as a small-diameter blood vessel replacement. This increasing adoption in the healthcare sector is driving market growth.

Market Restraints:

  1. High Production Cost: One of the challenges in the microbial cellulose market is the relatively high production cost. While it offers unique properties and advantages, the cost of producing microbial cellulose can be a limiting factor for some applications.

Market Opportunities:

  1. Rising Demand for Sustainable Materials: As the demand for sustainable and eco-friendly materials continues to grow, microbial cellulose is positioned as an attractive option. It is a natural product produced through microbial fermentation, making it a more sustainable alternative to nonrenewable and hard-to-degrade materials.

Future Trends:

  1. Rising Applications in the Cosmetics Industry: The cosmetics industry is increasingly using microbial cellulose due to its high water retention rate and compatibility with skin. It is used in products such as face masks, moisturizers, and anti-aging products, driving its growth in the cosmetics sector.

Regional Growth:
