Small Molecule API Market - Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018- 2026

Small Molecule API Market - Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018- 2026

A small molecule Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) is a low molecular weight organic compound, which may help to control biological process. Most of the small molecules can be administered orally and are most likely to be absorbed by the body. Owing to its small size it has properties of rapid diffusibility to reach the intracellular site of action.

Market Dynamics

Growing expansion of small molecule API manufacturers in the Asia Pacific region is a major factor driving the small molecule API market growth. For instance, BASF is planning to build a new specialty amines plant at its existing site in Nanjing Chemical Industry Park, China. This new multi-product plant will be able to manufacture 21,000 metric tons of amines year, and it extends BASF’s amines portfolio at the specialty amines complex in Nanjing. The plant is scheduled to stream by 2019. Moreover the small molecule API manufacturers have planned to add global sales and business development staff, followed by quality, regulatory, and project management teams, which have positively influenced growth of the market.

However, stringent regulatory policies for API manufacturing may hinder the market growth. Stringent global regulatory policies on quality assessments of small molecule API manufacturing, facility certification, and increased supply chain security issues across emerging countries have a large impact on the cost of final small molecule API products. The new entrants willing to enter into small molecule API manufacturing are facing financial challenges, owing to aforementioned factors.
