Growing demand for pharmaceuticals and the presence of untapped opportunities in BRIC countries is expected to drive market growth over the next six years

The global market for excipients is expected to reach USD 5,226.1 million by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing demand for pharmaceuticals as a consequence of growing global geriatric population base and the introduction of innovative products such as Mallinckrodt Baker’s PanExcea MHC300G are expected to drive excipient demand over the next six years. Moreover, the presence of a large amount of untapped opportunities in emerging markets such as India, China and Brazil, in terms of unmet medical needs and low cost manufacturing options is also expected to fuel market demand.

Polymers dominated the overall market in 2013, accounting for over 45% of global excipient revenues, with growing demand for cellulose as anti-adherent, filler/diluents, lubricant, disintegrants, binders, and film coating material in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries being critical factors augmenting polymer excipient consumption.

The report “Exc Excipients Market Analysis By Polymers (MCC, HPMC, CMC, Ethyl Cellulose, Povidone), Alcohols (Glycerin, Sorbitol, Mannitol, Propylene Glycol), Minerals (Clay, Silicon Dioxide, Titanium Dioxide), Sugars And Segment Forecasts To 2020,” is available now to Grand View Research customers at
