Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), also known as hypromellose, is a synthetically modified version of the natural polymer cellulose that is safe for human consumption. Because HPMC capsules are made from plant extracts, they are quickly becoming a popular alternative to hard shell gelatin capsules. They provide excellent alternatives to gelatin capsules, meeting the dietary and cultural needs of vegetarians. Due to their thermal reversible gelation property, the HPMC material is present in the form of an off-white powder or granules that are hygroscopic and practically insoluble in hot water, acetone, and chloroform, but disintegrate readily in cold water, forming a colloidal solution. The FDA conducted clinical trials on the safety of HPMC material in rats and found no adverse reactions. As a result, it is considered safe for human consumption. In-vitro studies have also shown that the capsules perform better than gelatin capsules in terms of dissolution/disintegration and development time.


The drawbacks of gelatin capsules such as water content, along with the significant acceptance of as well as demand from vegetarians for alternatives will spur the demand for HPMC capsule. Additionally, changing government regulations & guidelines for the human consumption of HPMC capsules, and adoption of better health care facilities expected to boost the market growth to significant extent over the forecast period. However, stringent regulations related to hydroxypropyl methylcellulose in pharmaceutical industry coupled with threat from various substitutes are some the major factor which may restraint the growth of the market in the forecasted period.
