Advancement in API Synthesis to Drive Global API Market

Date: 16th Dec 2020 | Category: Pharma & Healthcare

The global API market is forecasted to reach US$270.83 billion in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% for the period spanning 2020-2024. The factors such as increasing ageing population, rising healthcare expenditure per capita, growing cancer patients, inclining orphan drugs industry and accelerating outsourcing of API drugs are expected to drive the market. However, growth of the industry would be challenged by regulatory compliance. Few notable trends include growth in pharmaceutical R&D expenditures, growing artificial intelligence (AI) adoption for drug discovery, advancement in API synthesis and announcement of environmental protection policies on APIs by China. 

In 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has created a favorable impact on the market as many nations have been continuously making micro-interventions, speeding up internal certification for third party sources and as well as ramping up domestic production to keep supply chains functional as best as can be done. 

APIs are available in different types in the market. On the basis of available source, the categories include small molecule (chemical) and biological (large molecule). 

The fastest growing regional market is China owing to abundance of capital and other resources, low material costs and wage rates along with relatively relax regulations.
