Excipients Market Size Worth $6.9 Billion By 2025 | CAGR: 6.02%

January 2018 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global excipients market size is expected to reach USD 6.9 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 6.02% from 2017 to 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Globally increasing reach of generic medicines has been a major factor driving market growth. In addition, rising demand for newer excipients owing to the advantages of drug delivery and stability has led to the growth of the market. 

Excipients are essential components for the improvement of overall pharmaceutical activity and performance, both of which directly impact the characteristics of pharmaceutical formulations. An excipient in the right proportion can improve the shelf life and bioavailability of a formulation. These can also be used in drug delivery mechanisms such as sustained release and rapid release drugs.

Polymers were the largest product category in 2016 and are expected to maintain a comparatively moderate growth rate over the forecast period. Microcrystalline cellulose was the leading polymer in this category, accounting for a share of over 26.0% in 2016.

Sugars are expected to observe the fastest growth over the  coming years, exhibiting an estimated CAGR of 5.1% from 2017 to 2025. Sugars can play an instrumental role in increasing solubility, taste masking, dissolution, and drug delivery, which can drive its market.
