Global Pharmaceutical Excipient Market Poised for Remarkable Growth, Forecasted to Reach USD 1,600 Million by 2034

The global pharmaceutical excipient market is slated to have a valuation of USD 972.9 million in 2024. The burgeoning pharmaceutical industry is playing into the hands of pharmaceutical excipient vendors. With governments especially desirous of extending healthcare services to rural and remote parts, the pharmaceutical sector, and in turn, the pharmaceutical excipient market, is benefitting.

The pharmaceutical excipient industry is slated to progress at a CAGR of 5.1% through 2034. Excipients are moving away from the non-active role they were traditionally playing. Functional and novel excipients often provide functions like changing the color of the medicine or enhancing the effect of the active ingredient. Thus, pharmaceutical excipients are getting more of the limelight and end-users are paying more attention to them.

By the time 2034 rolls around, the pharmaceutical excipient market’s value is forecasted to hit USD 1,600 million. Development in the biologics sector is expected to add considerable value to the market. Similarly, developments in nanotechnology are predicted to enhance market value during the forecast period.

Some factors slow down the growth of the market. The market is heavily regulated, and the launch of new products has the potential to be slow as holdups from regulatory authorities are common. As with many pharmaceutical ingredients, consumer aversion towards them, especially artificial ingredients, is a roadblock for the market.

“Use of excipients to mask the taste of bitter medicines or to provide a different color to them is anticipated to help in the market’s progress. Despite the existence of some notable drawbacks, the multi-functionality of excipients is expected to help the market to progress along nicely,” says an analyst at FMI.
