Global Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Market: By Drug Type: Innovative, Generic Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients; By Type of Manufacturer; By Type of Synthesis; By Therapeutic Application; Regional Analysis; Historical Market and Forecast (2015-2025); Market Dynamics; Competitive Landscape; Industry Events and Developments

Global Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Market Outlook

The global active pharmaceutical ingredients market reached a value of about USD 185 billion in 2019. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of about 5.5% in the forecast period between 2020 and 2025 to reach USD 255 billion by 2025. 

The active pharmaceutical ingredients market, catalysed by lower prices, has slowly shifted from the historical leaders of western nations to manufacturers in developing countries like China and India. For a range of large and small suppliers, the global active pharmaceutical ingredients market is highly competitive. Companies involved in its production typically specialise in their manufacturing processes and plan their production on the basis of a combination of internal competencies and business possibilities.

 

Properties and Applications

Active pharmaceutical component (API) refers to the biologically active ingredient of a medicine. Generally, a medicine consists of several components, where the primary component is the API. Other additives are typically known as excipients. Often a drug may include many APIs, and its effect on a patient is dependent on the prescription dosage and may differ from person to person. In combination therapy, two or more active drugs are used to treat various symptoms in multiple ways.

On the basis of drug type, the market can be divided into the following:

  • Innovative 
  • Generic 

Based on the type of manufacturer, the industry is further segmented into:

  • Captive 
  • Merchant API 

Merchant API manufacturers can be further divided into innovative merchant API manufacturers and generic merchant API manufacturers. Based on the type of synthesis, the market can be divided into synthetic and biotech active pharmaceutical ingredients.

On the basis of type, the synthetic active pharmaceutical ingredients can be segmented into innovative synthetic APIs and generic synthetic APIs.

Biotech active pharmaceutical ingredients can be further categorised on the basis of type, product, and expression system. Based on type, the market can be divided as follows:   

  • Innovative Biotech APIs
  • Biosimilars

On the basis of the product, the industry is segmented into the following: 

  • Monoclonal Antibodies 
  • Vaccines 
  • Cytokines 
  • Fusion Proteins 
  • Therapeutic Enzymes 
  • Blood Factors

Based on expression system, the biotech active pharmaceutical ingredients segment can be divided as follows:

  • Mammalian Expression Systems 
  • Microbial Expression Systems
  • Yeast Expression Systems 
  • Transgenic Animal Systems
  • Others

Based on therapeutic application, the market can be segmented as follows:

  • Oncology
  • Cardiovascular and Respiratory Disorders
  • Diabetes 
  • Central Nervous System Disorders
  • Neurological Disorders  
  • Others

The regional markets for the product include North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

Market Analysis

The rising proliferation of chronic conditions has led to a rise in drug demand and, thus, to an increase in the global active pharmaceutical ingredients market. In addition, some manufacturers are investing in R&D activities in order to offer higher quality, low-cost APIs, which can help cure illnesses outside the reach of small molecular medicinal products. Therefore, pharmaceutical firms move their manufacturing facilities to developing economies and outsource their operations to maximize production and increase input costs. In addition, there is likely to be a substantial increase in the market for generic APIs as a result of a loss of patent rights for blockbuster drugs worth several billion dollars over the next few years.

The growing number of blockbusters patent expiries is among the key drivers of this industry and provides a substantial chance to generic active pharmaceutical ingredients. In addition, the demand for active pharmaceutical ingredients for bio-based substances has been rising. The global biologics market is currently showing a strong growth, which is catalysed by its high power and ability to treat diseases other than small molecule medicines. This has led to a high demand for APIs and their biosimilar versions of marketed biological drugs. The ageing population, higher expenditure on healthcare, and increased prevalence of lifestyle diseases are the other factors that are catalysing the market.
