Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is a semisynthetic, inert and viscoelastic polymer. It is used as an excipient and a controlled-delivery component in oral medicaments, and as an ophthalmic lubricant. The chemical formula of HPMC is C56H108O30 and it is produced on an industrial level by treating cellulose, propylene and methylene with sodium hydroxide by the process of alkalization and etherification. HPMC has well-diversified applications across various sectors. It is used in pharmaceuticals, ceramics, adhesives, paints & coatings, buildings and personal care products. It is used in construction materials as a tile binder, water retention agent and rheology modifier. It also serves as an alternative to gelatin because of its physical similarities to gelatin and its vegetarian source. It can also be used as a substitute to gluten. In the pharmaceutical sector, it is used in supplement capsules, coatings; as a drug carrier, emulsifier and tablet binders. On the industrial level, it is used in inks, in printing and dyeing of textiles and in paper making. During 2015-2019, the global HPMC market grew at a CAGR of around 6.6%. The consumption of HPMC is driven by the construction and pharmaceutical sector which account for the majority of its consumption. The report by Expert Market Research entitled “HPMC Market Report and Forecast 2020-2025” provides a comprehensive analysis for anyone who plans to foray into the HPMC market.
