HPMC (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

$ 1799


Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) is a white or slightly off-white powder without any distinct odour or taste. Also known as hypromellose, it is a synthetic modification of alkali cellulose produced by treating cotton linter or wood pulp with sodium hydroxide solution. As it is soluble in cold water as well as exhibits reversible gelation, HPMC finds numerous and versatile applications in fields ranging from construction to ophthalmology. According to IMARC Group’s latest report “HPMC (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the value of the global HPMC market has grown at a CAGR of around 7% during 2010-2017 driven by its strong demand in the construction and pharmaceutical sectors. The report provides a comprehensive insight into the industry including its market break-up by region, market breakup by end-uses, value chain analysis, import and export trends, key players and market outlook. The report also gives an in-sight into the manufacturing process of HPMC, covering key success and risk factors for manufacturers, manufacturing process flow, the reactions involved, raw materials and their requirements, etc.

The report has analysed the global HPMC market on the basis of major end-use industries. The construction industry currently represents the biggest end-user of HPMC accounting for the majority of its total global consumption. It is used in the construction industry as a result of its high water retention which aids in extending the working time of mortar and helps in increasing the mechanical strength of mortar while solidification. In the pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industry, it is used as an emulsifying, dispersing and thickening agent for lotions, ointments, creams and pastes. HPMC also acts as a compression aid and coating agent for tablets and as a substitute for animal derived gelatine in making capsules. In the food industry, it is used for emulsifying, stabilising, suspending and thickening various food products such as frozen foods, frozen fruits, sauces and ketchups.
