Introduction to Pharmaceutical Excipients Industry

As drug formulations are marketed in various forms including capsules, tablets, soft gels, topical creams, patches, injections, implants, inhalers, and others, the demand for efficient pharmaceutical excipients is increasingly observed. Excipients with superior properties supporting the manufacturing process, providing drug protection, improved stability, bioavailability, and extended safety profile are gaining wide market penetration.

Pharmaceutical excipients perform a wide range of functions in medicines such as diluents, Binders, compression aids, granulating agents, disintegrants, glidants, lubricants, coloring agents, coatings, and films. Both natural and synthetic pharmaceutical excipients are poised to gain sift market growth over the forecast period to 2030. In addition, rapid demand growth for functional excipients is likely to shape the future of the global pharmaceutical excipients industry.

Investments in innovation and reliable performance are among the key factors marketed by companies manufacturing pharmaceutical excipients. With the growing demand for controlled-release drugs, leading vendors are focusing on pharmaceutical excipients in diverse forms such as capsules, tablets, gels, and barrier-coated multiparticulates.

 

Global pharmaceutical excipients market size outlook

The drive towards innovative drug delivery systems is encouraging the market for pharmaceutical excipients. Novel excipients that can improve the quality of drugs have robust growth potential. In addition, modified and co-processed excipients are also largely introduced in the industry.

The pharmaceutical excipients market size is valued at $9,738 million in 2022. The market witnessed a swift recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic effect during the last two quarters of 2021 and the first few quarters of 2022. Further, the post-pandemic forecasts remain robust for both the near-term and long-term future. Between 2022 and 2030, the global pharmaceutical excipients market size is expected to increase from $9,738 million to $16,227 million, at a 6.59% growth rate, compounded annually.

The market growth outlook will be driven predominantly by emerging countries. Around two-thirds of global medicine consumption, in volume terms, is observed in emerging markets. A large portion of the medicine sales in these markets will be generic, supporting the demand for cost-effective pharmaceutical excipient producers.

On the other hand, worldwide, pharmaceutical excipient vendors continue to face pricing pressures, intense competitive conditions, and shrinking profit margins.

The chart below depicts the market size for pharmaceutical excipients from 2021 to 2030, in value terms, at the global level along with the year-on-year growth rate-

Pharmaceutical Excipients Market Size Outlook to 2030

Pharmaceutical Excipients Market Trends- Ongoing R&D investments in the development of novel excipients

A significant volume of unmet demand supports R&D investments. Several small and medium companies, academic institutions, and research organizations are focusing on developing new pharmaceutical excipients. A vast majority of the research work is focused on modified excipients, where pre-approved excipients are combined without chemical changes to obtain the desired functionality. In addition, a significant volume of R&D investment is devoted to developing novel excipients. Further, biotechnologically or biologically derived substances are also widely researched across markets. However, the stringent regulatory framework for the marketing of novel excipients restrains investments in R&D for new products.
