Rising adoption of orphan drugs;

An orphan drug is a pharmaceutical agent developed to treat rarely occurring medical conditions referred to as orphan diseases. Owing to the surge in the number of treatments for rare diseases, the pharmaceutical industry is expected to witness a rising demand for pharmaceutical ingredients, including APIs and excipients. According to the US NIH, there are as many as 7,000 conditions classified as rare by US standards (affecting less than 200,000 Americans). Since the introduction of the Orphan Drug Act, only about 600 drugs have been approved, leaving most rare diseases without any licensed treatment.

Additionally, drug makers typically charge higher prices for orphan drugs (being protected by market exclusivity granted to any company that secures an orphan drug approval). To date, insurers have mostly agreed to cover such drugs, despite their higher price, due to the lack of other options. The continuous focus of drug manufacturers on the development of treatment options for rare diseases is further expected to drive the growth of the tablet coatings market. Some of the major pharmaceutical companies selling orphan drugs in the market are Celgene (US), Roche (Switzerland), Teva (Israel), Bristol-Myers Squibb (US), Biogen (US), AbbVie (US), Amgen (US), Novartis (Switzerland), Takeda (Japan), and Jazz Pharmaceuticals (Ireland).
