|Production and Market of Polyvinylpolypyrrolidone in China|
|Published: September 24, 2014||Content info: 31 Pages||
Polyvinylpolypyrrolidone (PVPP) is a highly cross-linked modification of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), thus it's insoluble in water though it still absorbs water and swells very rapidly which generates a swelling force. This property makes it useful as a disintegrant in troche and as a filler in granule and capsule. PVPP is also used as a fining to extract impurities in wines and juices in the process of production.
In China, PVPP has been used as a stabilizer and clarifying agent in beer production by some large-scale producers to remove polyphenols since the early twenty-first century. Having been added in Chinese Pharmacopoeia (Version 2010) in 2010 as a pharmaceutical adjuvant, PVPP is also used in pharmaceutical industry, mainly in troche as a disintegrant.
As a stabilizer, PVPP has an edge of outstanding stabilization function over its competitors such as silica gel, tannic acid and papain. As a disintegrant, PVPP also has the most excellent disintegrant ability among disintegrants.
Thanks to the ever increasing output of beer and pharmaceuticals in China, the output of PVPP has been rising in recent years; however, the growth speed is slow. In 2013, China's total output of PVPP has increased to 1,545 tonnes from 1,508 tonnes in 2009, achieving a CAGR of about 1%. However, the capacity of PVPP has kept stable at about 2,850t/a from 2009 to now.
Basically, PVPP is supplied by PVP producers in China currently, and the producers are mainly distributed in Henan Province, Zhejiang Province and Shandong Province. Specially, in Henan Province, there is China's first and largest PVP producer, namely Boai NKY.
As PVPP hasn't been popularized in its downstream industries in China, and is supported by the fast development of PVPP production technology, China's PVPP is mainly for export, with the export volume taking up about 70%. China has been a key PVPP supplier in the world market.
The report introduces the production and consumption of PVPP through the following aspects:
Though the consumption volume of PVPP in domestic market is still small, it has been increasing in recently years. With the increasing demand for PVPP at home and abroad, PVPP output will continue to increase slowly.
