Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Market To Reach USD 346.4 Billion By 2032

The active pharmaceutical ingredients market sees new possibilities and prospects through constant research in advanced technology.

Fort Collins, Colorado, Oct. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to DataHorizzon Research, the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) Market size was valued at USD 151.2 Billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 346.4 Billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 8.7%. 

APIs are components of pharma drugs used for treating medical conditions. They are derived from various sources, including chemical synthesis, natural sources like plants and microorganisms, and biotechnological processes. With the rise in chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, COPD, hepatitis, asthma, and arthritis, the demand for APIs has increased to accelerate manufacturing.

The rise in active pharmaceutical companies has caused many drugs to go off-patent, leading to advancements in drug treatments. However, the strict API manufacturing standards result in high development costs, longer development times, and maintaining high-quality standards. With an increase in the global geriatric population, the demand for drugs has also increased due to higher risk of age-related infections and diseases like diabetes and COVID-19.

The active pharmaceutical ingredients market is driven by the rise in per capita healthcare expenditure and increased awareness about diagnosis in developing countries. APIs are useful for treating specialty and rare diseases, and specialized APIs for these drugs are growing. The expiration of patents and intellectual property rights for originator biologics in the next decade will increase the demand for pharmaceutical drugs to treat diseases, further driving the market.
