Growth Factors:

Market growth is driven mainly by factors such as rising drug R&D, the increasing incidence of chronic diseases, the growing importance of generics, and the increasing uptake of biopharmaceuticals. On the other hand, unfavorable drug price control policies across various countries and high manufacturing costs are expected to restrain the growth of this market.

Global Active pharmaceutical ingredients Market Dynamics
DRIVER: Increasing incidence of chronic diseases
Over the last few decades, the incidence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, coronary artery disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, hepatitis, arthritis, and cancer has increased significantly in major regions across the globe. This can be attributed to the rising geriatric population across the globe (by 2050, more than 20% of the global population is expected to be aged over 65 years), changing lifestyles, and dietary changes as a result of rapid urbanization. According to the International Diabetes Federation, in 2019, 463 million people worldwide were diagnosed with diabetes. Moreover, the number of new cancer cases per year is expected to rise to 23.6 million by 2030. Apart from cancer, a number of other diseases have shown increasing prevalence rates.

RESTRAINT: High manufacturing costs
The high manufacturing cost of APIs is one of the major challenges faced by market players. Manufacturers often have to make costly investments for improvements in their manufacturing facilities to ensure compliance with standards such as the cGMP. This includes the renovation of production facilities, inculcating familiarity with qualification requirements and processes, and building a dossier of product efficacy and safety tests that meet the requirements of regulatory authorities. Furthermore, the costs of obtaining regulatory approvals are relatively higher for firms with small volumes. The chemical synthesis of APIs also often requires expensive and uncommon building blocks and raw materials, which further adds to API manufacturing costs.

OPPORTUNITY: Emerging biosimilars market
The rising incidence of various diseases, the increasing number of off-patent biologic drugs, positive outcomes in ongoing clinical trials for biosimilars, and the rising demand for biosimilars in different therapeutic applications (such as rheumatoid arthritis and blood disorders) are the major factors driving the growth of the biosimilars market. Biosimilars are generic versions of patented biologic drugs; hence, they do not need to comply with the stringent requirements of various regulatory authorities (making them cost-effective as compared to patented biologics). The expiration of patents and other intellectual property rights for originator biologics over the next decade is expected to open up opportunities for biosimilars to enter the market.

The innovative APIs segment dominated the active pharmaceutical ingredients market in 2019.
Based on type, the active pharmaceutical ingredients market is segmented into innovative and generic APIs. The innovative APIs segment accounted for the largest share of the global active pharmaceutical ingredients market in 2019. Increased FDA approvals for new molecular entities, high price of innovative APIs as compared to the generic drugs, increased focus on R&D by the innovator API companies are the factors contributing towards the growth of the innovative APIs segment.

The oncology segment will witness the highest growth during the forecast period
Based on application, the active pharmaceutical ingredients market is segmented into communicable diseases, oncology, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, pain management, chronic respiratory diseases, and other therapeutic application. neurology, immunology, hematology, critical care, pulmonology, hemato-oncology, rheumatology, and other applications. In 2019, the oncology segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Growth in this market segment is driven by the increasing demand for highly potent APIs (HPAPIs) for the treatment of cancer.
