Excipients play a significant role in drug formulation processes. They carry out an extensive range of functions to offer desired properties for the finished drug formulation. Also, they offer more effective and safer finished products for patients. Currently, there are more than 1,200 pharmaceutical excipients available in the market with various functionalities such as fillers and diluents, binders, coating agents, disintegrants, flavors, colorants, lubricants and glidants, solvents, preservatives, sweeteners, and antiadherents. In addition, there are functional excipients that modulate drug release from dosage forms.

For the past few years, the pharmaceutical excipients market has witnessed a stable growth rate. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2013 to 2018, to reach $7.35 billion by 2018. The overall growth in the global pharmaceutical excipients market is largely driven by the advancements in the pharmaceutical industry backed by functional excipients, patent expiration of a number of blockbuster drugs in the coming years, resultant increase in generics market, and emergence of multifunctional and co-processed excipients.

Currently, owing to the growing concerns over healthcare costs across developed countries, many pharmaceutical companies are under pressure to maintain their existing profit margins and improve them in future. This has led to a dramatic shift in the business model of some of the leading pharmaceutical manufacturers in the industry. A majority of manufacturers have already diverted their investment focus to high growth markets such as India, China and Brazil. Major companies are also establishing their subsidiaries in these regions, to establish a stronger foothold in these countries. Driven by such a transition, the APAC and Latin American regions are expected to spearhead the overall excipients market growth.

The global pharmaceutical excipients market is highly fragmented and commoditized to an extent. In 2012, none of the major players had a market share that was worth more than 10%. With intense market competition, a majority of the top players struggle to maintain their leadership positions. To maintain their market shares, several players in this market aim to either diversify their product portfolios or expand their geographic presence.

Currently, the global pharmaceutical excipients market is in the phase of transition, wherein co-processed excipients and the direct compression methods are getting wider acceptance among pharmaceutical manufacturers. This shift is helping them in improving their overall manufacturing output while reducing their operating costs. During 2011 to 2013, the growing need for novel functional excipients formed the basis of innovations in the market, when a majority of the leading players launched various advanced excipients, such as multifunctional excipients and co-processed excipients. Furthermore, market players also launched modified grades of existing pharmaceutical excipients in the market. The key players involved in these strategies are Avantor Performance Materials, Inc. (U.S.), DFE Pharma (Germany), Ashland, Inc. (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), and FMC Corporation (U.S.).

In this report, the global pharmaceutical excipients market is broadly segmented across two categories, namely, market by products and functionality. The market by products consists of various organic chemicals such as carbohydrates, proteins, oleochemicals, and petrochemicals and others, and inorganic chemicals such as various calcium compounds, halites, metal oxides which are widely used as excipients in the pharmaceutical industry. Based on functionality, the market is segmented into major functional areas of excipients such as fillers and diluents, binders, suspension and viscosity agents, coatings, flavoring agents, disintegrants, colorants, lubricants and glidants, and preservatives.

The global market is segmented by product, functionality, and geography. By product, the pharmaceutical excipients market is broadly classified into organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals, and others. The organic chemicals market is further segmented as carbohydrates, proteins, oleochemicals and petrochemicals, and other organic chemicals. The inorganic chemicals market covers calcium products, halites, metal oxides, and other inorganic materials. The other products mainly include the USP water for pharmaceutical use.

By functionality, the pharmaceutical excipients market is classified into fillers and diluents, binders, suspension and viscosity agents, coatings, flavoring agents, disintegrants, colorants, lubricants and glidants, preservatives, and other applications.

The total market is further divided into four major geographies, namely, North America, Europe, Asia, and the Rest of the World (RoW). These regions are further analyzed at the country level.

The present report discusses the key market drivers, restraints, and opportunities of the global pharmaceutical excipients market and its sub-markets.

The global market is estimated to be worth $5,716 Million in 2013. The market is mainly driven by the increasing demand for functional excipients from the pharmaceutical industry. The rapid increase in the generics market due to patent expiration of many blockbuster drugs is expected to drive the sales of excipients in the forecast period. However, increasing quality compliance and regulatory requirements for excipient manufacturers in order to ensure more transparency in supply chain may inhibit the growth of the market to a certain extent.

North America contributes the largest share to the global market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Developed geographies like North America and Europe are likely to grow at lower CAGRs as compared to the Asian market. The shift of focus of the pharmaceutical industries towards Asia and the high import of generics from emerging markets are hindering the growth of these geographies.

China, India, and Japan are likely to drive the growth of the Asian market. A majority of the growth in these markets is driven by increase in outsourcing to these locations mainly due to low-labor costs.
