Global Hydroxypropyl Cellulose Market to Grow at a CAGR of 4% During 2021-2026, Aided by the Rising Demand for Ophthalmic Drugs

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Hydroxypropyl Cellulose Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the global market for hydroxypropyl cellulose is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4% in the forecast period of 2021-2026.

The Asia Pacific is predicted to emerge as the one of the major markets for hydroxypropyl cellulose during the forecast period owing to the shifting of FMCG and other manufacturing bases to Asian countries such as China, India, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

(NYSE: ASH), the American based chemical company which is one of the major producers of hydroxypropyl cellulose, expanded the production capacity of its Klucel hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC) product line. This move will strengthen the company’s position in the global market. Manufacturers are emphasising on customisation of the product to cater to the specific needs of various sectors, which is expected to inform the market growth in the coming years.
