DUBLIN, June 1, 2021 The report “Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2021-2026” has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com from offer.
The global active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) market has reached a value of US $ 200.6 billion in 2020. Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) is the term used to refer to the biologically active component of a drug (eg, tablet, capsule). A medicine is usually made up of several components. The API is the main ingredient. Other ingredients are commonly referred to as “excipients”. Sometimes a medicine may contain more than one API and its effect on a patient depends on the prescribed dosage and may vary from person to person. In combination therapies, two or more active ingredients are used to treat different symptoms in different ways. Stringent quality control is a mandate when it comes to drug manufacturing, as API is the main component taken into account when prescribing.
Pharmaceutical manufacturing takes place in two general stages. In the first step, manufacturers convert raw materials into APIs. The second step is to create the final formulation by mixing APIs and excipients into tablets, capsules, solutions, etc. and finally to package the drug for end users. Manufacturers sell APIs on the open market (also known as the merchant market) or use them as inputs to make their final formulations. The global API market is extremely competitive with a number of large and small manufacturers. Companies that are embarking on API manufacturing specialize and typically target their manufacturing based on a combination of the company’s internal skills and market opportunities. Catalyzed by falling costs, API manufacturing has gradually shifted from historical leaders in Western countries to manufacturers based in India and China.
The worldwide demand for APIs is currently growing strongly. One of the main drivers of this market is the increasing number of successful patent expirations, creating a significant opportunity for generic APIs. In addition, there has been a strong demand for APIs for biologics. The global biologics market is currently showing strong growth catalyzed by their high potency and ability to treat diseases beyond the scope of small molecule drugs. This is creating a strong API demand for brand name biologics and their biosimilar versions. Other factors catalyzing the global demand for APIs include an aging population, increasing healthcare spending, increasing prevalence of lifestyle-related diseases, and more. Looking ahead, the publisher expects the global active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) market to show moderate growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).
The competitive landscape of the market was also examined with some of the major players (active pharmaceutical ingredient companies) being Pfizer, Inc., Novartis International AG, Sanofi, Boehringer Ingelheim, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., ELI Lilly and company, GlaxoSmithKline, Merck & Co., Inc. and Abbvie Inc.
