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. Europe and North America have witnessed significant growth in the hydroxypropyl cellulose industry. The utilisation of hydroxypropyl cellulose in various sectors such as electrical insulators, edible food coating, film coating, paper, textile coating, whipped compounds, emulsion creams, lotions, shampoos, foamed tubes, printing inks, and tablet binders is anticipated to drive the market in the coming years.

In 2016, Ashland Global Holdings Inc. (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. However, stringent government regulations regarding the usage of hydroxypropyl cellulose in pharmaceutical, personal care, and food and beverages could hamper the market growth.
