World Excipient Market – Opportunities and Forecast, 2014 – 2020

Date: 2016-03

“Pharmaceutical excipients are inert substances, other than the pharmacologically active drug, which are included in the manufacturing process or are present in the pharmaceutical product dosage form. Excipients are widely used in drug formulation to provide long-term stability, add bulkiness to solid formulations and facilitate drug absorption. They also enhance the overall safety or functionality of the product during storage or use. The world excipient market volume is estimated to reach 728.4 kilo tons by 2020, accounting for a revenue of $6.4 billion.

The world excipients market is driven by the increase in demand for oral solid pharmaceutical drugs and emergence of novel therapeutics on account of the upsurge in the number of pharmaceutical industries. The amalgamation of drug formulation and nanotechnology in pharmaceutical excipients have led to the development of nano-coated tablets, nano-derived liposomes, and vaccines. In addition, several companies have targeted the emerging economies for expansion of their plants for manufacturing pharmaceutical excipients, owing to cost-effective labor. However, higher production cost and stringent government regulations are likely to impede the market growth.
