Excipients are additives substances used in the tablet formulation to improve bulkiness, disintegration, dissolution rate and bioavailability of the drug. Excipients are crucial to drug delivery within the body. It does not have any medicinal properties. Its standard purpose is to streamline the manufacture of the drug and ultimately enhance the physiological absorption of the drug. Excipients might aid lubricity, flowability, disintegration, taste, and may confer some anti-microbial function to the active pharmaceutical agent.

Rapid advances in drug discovery and healthcare industry provide impetus to the pharmaceutical excipients market. Moreover, the growth of oral drugs in recent times, and increase in penetration and accessibility to drugs in the emerging markets has led to an expansion of the pharmaceutical market, and thereby the excipients market.

Market Dynamics

The market for pharmaceutical excipients has seen strong growth over the past few years and is forecast to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 6.1% from 2016 to 2021, in hand with the rising demand in the pharmaceutical industry for functional excipients. By 2021, the pharmaceutical excipients market will be worth an estimated $8.1 billion.
The demand for excipients will see an upward trend in the coming years due to the increase in demand for generics, as the patents of a number of blockbuster drugs are set to expire. The emergence of new excipients is also boosting the market. Nanotechnology helps impart new functions to pharmaceutical excipients. Products such as nanotechnology-enabled drug delivery systems and liposomal drug delivery systems enable better targeting to the disease site, and thus reducing the drug toxicity.
Aging population base, growing expenditure on healthcare, increasing healthcare penetration in developing countries, are some of the drivers of the pharmaceutical industry, which will, in turn, raise the demand for pharmaceutical excipients. The challenge in this sector is the increasing stringency of regulatory requirements and the high-quality standards that are to be maintained, as the lives of the people is at stake.
