... activities in the active pharmaceutical ingredients market.
Overview of This Study:
This study involved four major activities in estimating the current size of the active pharmaceutical ingredient market. Exhaustive secondary research was carried out to collect information on the market, its peer markets, and its parent market. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain through primary research. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the complete market size. After that, market breakdown and data triangulation procedures were used to estimate the market size of segments and subsegments.
Market growth is driven mainly by factors such as investments in real world evidence by pharmaceutical, focus on precision medicine, and increased importance of generics. On the other hand, increased penetration of counterfit drugs and unfavourable policies by drug price control commities across various countries are expected to restrain the growth of this market.
COVID-19 impact on the global active pharmaceutical ingredient market:
With the WHO declaring the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic, a mix of established pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, as well as small startups, have stepped forward to develop treatments that target the infection. In just a few weeks, scientists found a list of molecules that target COVID-19. Currently, around 155 molecules are under clinical investigation, and 45 molecules are under preclinical development to be targeted against COVID-19. In this list, there are four promising drugs (Remdesivir, Chloroquine & Hydroxychloroquine, Lopinavir & Ritonavir, and Lopinavir with Ritonavir plus Interferon beta-1a) that have been repurposed for use against COVID-19. On March 24, 2020, the WHO announced that it had initiated a global mega trial of the four most promising drugs against COVID-19.
Countries are in a global race to develop and mass-produce an efficient vaccine to fight COVID-19. The economic and social burden of pandemics has prompted government bodies to increase funding for vaccine development on a global scale. According to the WHO, as of June 2020, there were over 140 vaccines in various stages of development. Of these, 13 are now in the human clinical trial stage, while others remain at the very early stages of preclinical testing. Increase in funding and research for development of pharmaceutical products will drive growth for the market. However, coronavirus outbreak has disrupted business and economic activities globally.in the first quarter of 2020 It is expected to have a short-term impact on the active pharmaceutical ingredients market to a certain extent.
OPPORTUNITY: Highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients
Highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPIs) represent a significant change in the way pharmaceutical companies are using small molecules to deliver new therapies. The shift toward HPAPIs has led to the development of a pipeline of more effective medicines that require lower doses. The benefits of HPAPIs, such as their high efficacy, lower therapeutic dose requirement (owing to the selective mode of action), and the ability to bind to specific receptors, can be considered as the major factors responsible for their growing demand among manufacturers as well as customers.
The presence of small molecules has traditionally dominated the APIs market. As the generic APIs market continues to get highly competitive, API manufacturers are shifting toward newer avenues such as HPAPIs to differentiate themselves from the competition.
Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate the total size of the active pharmaceutical ingredients market. These methods were also used extensively to estimate the size of various subsegments in the market. The research methodology used to estimate the market size includes the following:
# The key players in the industry and market have been identified through extensive secondary research.
# The revenues generated from the active pharmaceutical ingredients business of leading players have been determined through primary and secondary research.
# All percentage shares, splits, and breakdowns have been determined using secondary sources and verified through primary sources.
Projected Revenue Surge:
The global active pharmaceutical ingredient market size is projected to reach USD 248.3 billion by 2025 from USD 187.3 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period.
After arriving at the overall market size from the market size estimation process, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments. To complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments, data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed, wherever applicable. The data was triangulated by studying various factors and trends from both the demand and supply sides.
