Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), also known as hypromellose, is a derivative of alkali cellulose obtained by treating cotton liner or wood pulp with caustic soda, methyl chloride, and propylene oxide. It is an odorless, tasteless, light-colored, and non-toxic powder that forms a colloid solution when dissolved in cold water. As it exhibits hydrophilic and reversible gelation properties, it finds applications in various fields, ranging from construction to ophthalmology. Nowadays, HPMC is increasingly being utilized in preparing biocomposites on account of its excellent biodegradability and biocompatibility.

HPMC (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose) Market Trends:
The market growth can be accredited to the increasing use of HPMC in several industry verticals. For instance, it acts as a thickening agent, stabilizer, and emulsifier in the preparation of toppings, sauces, frozen fruits, ketchup, and various bakery items. This, in confluence with the escalating demand for low-fat food products on account of the increasing health consciousness among individuals, represents one of the major factors driving the demand for HPMC in the food and beverage (F&B) industry. Moreover, as it is inert, semisynthetic, and viscoelastic, it is utilized as a lubricant, binder, excipient, bio adhesive, solubility enhancer, and dispersing agent in the production of lotions, ointments, creams, and pastes. In addition to this, the increasing focus on personal health and hygiene is positively influencing the sales of personal care products, which, in turn, is contributing to market growth. Apart from this, the expanding applications of HPMC in manufacturing dyes, paints, coatings, textiles, and oral medications are anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities to market players.
