Increased Demand for Pharmaceutical Excipients Market in Asia Pacific to Fuel Demand for Multi-Functional Excipients

The global pharmaceutical excipients market is expected to be valued at $ 7,415.2 Mn by 2021.


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/05/2017 -- Pharmaceutical excipients are elements, excluding pharmacologically active drug constituents that are incorporated in the drug making process or restricted in a complete pharmaceutical product quantity form. They are included in the drug manufacturing process for the purpose of long-term stabilization, such as amassed lubricity and refining compressibility amongst other features.

The market growth is predominantly driven by growing demand for preventive and treatment drugs. Focus on patient comfort has also influenced drug manufacturers to cultivate sustained-release dosage preparations. This has helped contribute to prolonged shelf life of oral drugs, adding to higher profits projections. The absence of corresponding quality standards for the degree of excipients and their protection evaluation standards are some factors expected to restrain the growth of the market over the forecast period.
