According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Europe Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the Europe hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) market size reached US$ 110.4 Million in 2022. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) is a synthetic, water-soluble polymer that belongs to the family of cellulose ethers. It is derived from cellulose, a natural polymer found in the cell walls of plants. HPMC is widely used in various industries due to its unique properties, including pharmaceuticals, food, cosmetics, and construction. It is commonly used as an excipient in drug formulations. It serves several essential functions, such as improving drug solubility, enhancing tablet disintegration and dissolution, and providing controlled drug release. In the food industry, HPMC is utilized as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier. It can improve the texture and mouthfeel of various food products without altering their taste or nutritional value. Additionally, HPMC is often used as a vegetarian alternative to gelatin in food items, making it suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Europe Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) Market Trends:
The Europe market is primarily driven by significant growth in the construction industry. As construction activities continue to grow, particularly in developing regions, the demand for HPMC as an essential additive in building materials is on the rise. Moreover, the expanding pharmaceutical industry, driven by factors such as aging populations and increasing healthcare needs, is propelling the demand for HPMC. In the pharmaceutical sector, HPMC is widely employed in the formulation of oral dosage forms, including tablets and capsules. Its role as an effective film-coating material, controlled-release agent, and binder has made it increasingly popular in drug manufacturing. Additionally, the personal care and cosmetic industry have embraced HPMC for its role as a thickener, stabilizer, and suspension agent in various products, including creams, lotions, and shampoos. As consumer preferences shift towards natural and sustainable ingredients, HPMC, being derived from plant cellulose, aligns with these demands, contributing to its market growth in this sector. Furthermore, the food industry's inclination towards cleaner-label products and the need for improved texture and stability in various food items have led to increased adoption of HPMC as a food additive. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 174.3 Million by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 8.03% during 2023-2028.
