Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Market To Reach USD 346.4 Billion By 2032 at CAGR 8.7%| DataHorizzon Research

Active pharmaceutical ingredients market to undergo added efficiency and transformation.

Colorado, Jan. 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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%, according to DataHorizzon Research Inc.

Factors such as the rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes and cancer are expected to remain crucial in the market development. Furthermore, the API market developments are also characterized by research breakthroughs. For instance, in 2023, TCGGreenChem Inc, a U.S.-based leading drug discovery and development completed the manufacturing stages for API of Ropidoxuridine, for further use by U.S.-based Shuttle Pharmaceuticals clinical phase II trials in brain cancer patients going for radiation therapy.

Piramal Pharma Solutions, a leading contract development and management organization (CDMO) initiated their phase 1 production batches for API in Michigan, Riverview facility in 2023. The initial production was the first step towards the three-step process for manufacturing and development of Phase-II clinical trials. The facility covers nearly 25000 square feet of space including warehousing, production, and supporting utilities. The company has also plans to scale up the infrastructure which can house additional reactor bays, as planned for phase 2 production. With the success of phase 1 production, the company feels excited to address the burgeoning demands for both potent and non-potent APIs.

The active pharmaceutical ingredients market growth is highly anticipated in the forthcoming years due to government regulations and foreign policies. Besides, the rise in the number of manufacturers of active pharmaceutical ingredients has resulted in generating self-reliance and import-free pharmaceuticals. For instance, between 2021 and 2023, Indian pharma companies manufactured 38 APIs under the production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for the sector. Provisions under this scheme has reduced the import burden for 54 APIs from foreign countries.

In addition, the Indian economy witnessed the rise of 115 new plants in 2022 to obtain manufacturing licenses to produce bulk drugs and API with an investment of USD 28 billion. This has majorly driven the pharma industry in India. The new API production units on the Indian soil include hormones, vitamins, oncology, antibiotics, and steroids which were earlier imported from China.
