Cyclodextrin Market

Global Market Study on Cyclodextrin: Availability of Numerous Derivatives of Cyclodextrin Aiding Market Growth

Cyclodextrin Market Segmented By Segmented By Alpha-Cyclodextrin, Beta-Cyclodextrin, Gamma-Cyclodextrin Type in Food, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics and Personal


Cyclodextrins are cyclic oligosaccharides consisting of glucopyranosyl units linked by α-(1,4) bonds. There are three types of cyclodextrin, namely, alpha-cyclodextrin, beta-cyclodextrin, and gamma-cyclodextrin. Beta-cyclodextrin is one of the primarily used cyclodextrins in different applications.

Besides, cyclodextrin has numerous derivatives such as hydroxypropyl-ß- cyclodextrins, nonionic cyclodextrins, anionic cyclodextrins, mono-6-(fmoc-gln-otbu)-β-cyclodextrin, methyl-β-cyclodextrin (mixture of several methylated), and others.

The availability of a high number of derivatives also increases the use of cyclodextrin in various end uses. Manufacturers is the cyclodextrin market are also increasingly introducing different derivatives for industries.

  • For instance, in October 2018, Cyclolab introduced 6-monoguanidino-6-monodeoxy-βCD, which is a beta cyclodextrin derivative. The product is a unique and versatile compound and can be used in different applications.

Cyclodextrin Market Drivers

Growing Inclusion of Cyclodextrin in Essential Oils: Essential oil has become a major ingredient in various industries, such as cosmetics and personal care, aromatherapy, herbal medicines, and others. Cyclodextrin is being progressively utilized by essential oil manufacturers to retain aroma.

Essential oil contains two vital components - hydrocarbon and oxygenated compound, which are responsible for the aromatic properties of oils. Furthermore, availability of phytochemicals also plays an efficient role in its biological activities.

Beta-cyclodextrin is applied in essential oils to protect them against the damaging effects of the environment, such as oxidation, degradation from heat and light, evaporation, and moisture, boding well for the expansion of the global cyclodextrin market size.

  • For instance, in cinnamon oil and clove oil, cyclodextrin is added from a freeze-dying method. On the other hand, in camomile oil, lemon oil, lippia gracilis oil, and black pepper oil, beta-cyclodextrin is added by co-precipitation.

Cyclodextrin Used for Environmental Protection Aiding Market Growth: Climate change has become a major concern for the world. Scientists and world leaders are welcoming all possible solutions to reduce climate change effects and protect the environment. Cyclodextrin also has a key use in environment protection, as it can reduce the amount of toxic chemicals that are generated during industrial production.

Trichlorfon, a toxic chemical, can be intoxicated after addition of cyclodextrin complexes, and 90% of toxic material can be removed. Moreover, inclusion of environmental contaminants with β-Cyclodextrin is found to be an effective solution to reduce the release of harmful chemicals into the environment. Increasing use of cyclodextrin to protect the environment is offering a growth opportunity for the cyclodextrin market space.

Increasing Usage of Cyclodextrin for Deodorants and Antiperspirants: Cyclodextrin has become a vital ingredient in deodorants and antiperspirants over the past few years. A deodorant’s components contain various ingredients that increase the fragrance and odor.

Since consumers have become more concerned regarding the chemical ingredients used in deodorants and antiperspirants, manufacturers are using innovative ingredients such as cyclodextrins. Strong odor controlling abilities of cyclodextrins has increased its use as a deodorizing agent. Moreover, beta cyclodextrins and its derivatives, hydroxypropyl-ß- cyclodextrins, are mainly used to control the release of fragrances.

Covid-19 Impact on Cyclodextrin Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has hindered the global economy, and subsequently impacted the growth of various industries. Food & beverage and cosmetics & personal care industries have also experienced a slowdown in business due to decrease in sales.

Cyclodextrin has also become one of the major ingredients for the food processing and cosmetics & personal care industry, which has led to reduced use of cyclodextrin during the pandemic. Trade restriction and supply chain disruptions have also affected the growth of the cyclodextrin market. The production of cyclodextrin tool has been affected as a lot of manufacturing has been shut in Europe, China, and others.

Low production outcome could also impact the price of cyclodextrin, which is anticipated to impact the prices of finished products. Nevertheless, as lockdowns are lifted the use of food and cosmetic ingredients is expected to increase. All in all, the coronavirus pandemic is expected to have a moderate impact on the growth of the global cyclodextrin market.
