Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient [API] Market Set to Surge to US$ 371.06 Bn By 2032, Rising Trends Towards Personalized Medicine Boost the Growth of API

The Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) market is set for substantial growth, propelled by rising chronic disease rates, increased generic drug production, and advancements in biotechnology and nanotechnology improving drug delivery systems.

Pune, July 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient Market Analysis:

“According to SNS Insider Research, The Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient Market is valued at USD 239.45 Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to surpass USD 371.06 Billion by 2032, with a compound annual growth rate of 5.37% over the forecast period 2024-2032.”

Growth of the Biopharmaceutical Sector and an Increase in Elderly Population Propelled the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient Market

Earlier chronic, communicable, and genetic diseases are likely to become more common as life expectancy increases worldwide will increase the improvement in global API demand. For example, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) reports that as of 2022 there are estimated diabetic cases to increase up to 643 million and then later on potentially will rise even more! “784” Million comes from projections by the year “2030” & “2045”.

In December 2023, following a report around 1.3 million people in Australia had diabetes in 2022, which was equivalent to the prevalence of type-2 diabetes at about one-fifth or more than five percent. Thus, peripheral neuropathy occurs when high blood sugar from diabetes injures the nerves that control the heart and blood vessels which further may cause different cardiovascular diseases such as coronary artery disease & stroke due to constricted arteries resulting in the need for drug administration consequently driving up API market expansion.

Segmentation Dynamics

The cardiology application segment accounted for the largest share in 2023 due to the increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases worldwide. More than half a billion people suffer from CVD globally, and in 2021 it caused nearly 20.5 million deaths – one-third of total global mortality, according to the World Heart Report 2022. Nearly all investigational research into Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) is driven by cardiovascular disease, which has become one of the most important global problems in public health. Simvastatin is a lipid-lowering agent of the statin class used in hyperlipidemia. Astra Zeneca uses one more API as an active analgesic for cardio sonic diseases and that is Rosuvastatin calcium.
