Global Pharmaceutical Excipients Market, by Chemistry (Plants, Animals, Minerals, and Synthetic Source), by Functionality (Binders, Diluents, Glidents, and Disintegrants), by Application (Oral, Parenteral, and Topical), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) was valued at US$ 6,557.6 million in 2018, and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period (2019–2027), as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Affordable healthcare is the primary objective of health regulators globally, which is propagated through various initiatives such as Obama Care Act in the U.S. and the actions of Drug Price Control Order (DPCO) in India. For instance, according to the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority report published (NPPA) India on October 2018, National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) India, fixed and revised the ceiling prices of 92 drug formulations. This order was made in accordance with the Drug Price Control Order (DPCO 2013), which aims to benefit retail consumers and targeted drug formulations that are used in multiple treatments such as cancer, hepatitis-C, migraine, and diabetes.
Moreover, development of new pharmaceutical products requires significant amount of time and effort with high manufacturing cost. However, pharmaceutical formulation development is economical, compared to drug or API development. Quality by Design is a scientific method that involves risk-based approach at pharmaceutical formulation development stage. For instance, in 2002, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) started an initiative for pharmaceutical companies called the Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP), which is a risk-based approach for pharmaceutical organizations to adopt management techniques for enhancing quality in accordance with modern standards.
Furthermore, in the pharmaceutical excipients market, pharmaceutical companies can encounter issues related to solubility of active pharmaceutical ingredient. Thus, to overcome these problems, in December 2016, Merck and Co., Inc.., launched Parteck MXP, a polyvinyl alcohol-based excipient that enhances solubility of a wide range of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs).
