Key Drivers of Global Methyl Cellulose Derivatives Market

  • With growth in aging population, health care systems across the globe are expected to face significant challenges. This, in turn, is likely to drive the demand for pharmaceutical products during the forecast period, thus resulting in increased demand for methyl cellulose derivatives for the treatment of various diseases such as diarrhea, hemorrhoids, etc.
  • Methyl cellulose derivatives are majorly used as thickeners, binders, emulsifiers, and stabilizers in pharmaceutical & biomedical application. Methyl cellulose derivatives are extensively used in the production of medicines for the treatment of diseases such as Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca, constipation, diverticulosis, and irritable bowel syndrome. Moreover, owing to their excellent lubricating ability, methyl cellulose derivatives are also used in the treatment of dry eyes.
  • Rapid expansion of the building & construction sector in both developing and developed nations has led to increase in demand for tiles across the globe. Additionally, rising disposable income of people worldwide has led to increase in the purchasing power of consumers. This has led to changes in lifestyle of people, including look and maintenance of their house. All these factors are projected to drive the methyl cellulose derivatives market.
  • Furthermore, these derivatives offer excellent binding ability with polymers such as polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) for deposing tiles. In addition, derivatives such as hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose and hydroxyethyl methyl cellulose are added to mortar dry mixture for enhancing the properties of the mortar such as workability, water retention, viscosity, and adhesion to surfaces. The dry mortar mixture is mainly used in the production of tile adhesives, insulating plasters, machine sprayed plaster, crack fillers, etc. All these factors are projected to drive the methyl cellulose derivatives market in the near future.

Asia Pacific to Hold Major Share of Global Methyl Cellulose Derivatives Market

  • In terms of region, the global methyl cellulose derivatives market can be divided into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America
