The United States hydroxypropyl methylcellulose market is currently witnessing steady growth. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), or hypromellose, refers to a chemically modified polymer produced by treating cellulose with sodium hydroxide solution. It is usually a colorless, odorless and tasteless powder commonly available in the form of HPMC solution, gel and jelly. They are widely used in the treatment of various eye-related problems, such as dry eyes. Apart from this, they are also used in food products to replace gluten in breads and other baked products. They also act as a binder, coating polymer, thickening agent and bio adhesive for the manufacturing of pharmaceutical drugs. As a result, they find extensive applications in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and construction industries.
The rapidly emerging trend of veganism, along with the growing demand for HPMC capsules as a substitute for animal-origin products is creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, increasing awareness regarding the benefits of HPMC in the pharmaceutical industry is contributing to the market growth. For instance, HPMC products aid in ophthalmic lubrication and act as key emulsifying and thickening agents for ointments, lotions and creams. Moreover, significant growth in construction projects across the United States is providing a thrust to the market growth. HPMC exhibits high water-retaining capacity, which aids in strengthening the mortar during solidification. This, in turn, is driving the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to witness steady growth during 2021-2026.
