Global Binders Excipients Market 2015-2019

About binder excipients

Binders are used to hold or bind materials close enough so that they form a cohesive unit; binders also act as adhesives. Binder excipients are used during medicine or drug formulations. They are used to form granules of medical powders, which under compaction can take various shapes to form a compact mass, known as tablets. The global binder excipients market has witnessed rapid growth over the past few years. The US and Germany accounted for the major shares because of the presence of a large number of excipient manufacturers. Pharmaceutical companies are the major consumers of binder excipients.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global binder excipients market to grow at a CAGR of 4.93% over the period 2015-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Binders Excipients Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Binders Excipients Market: Ashland, BASF, Colorcon, Croda International and EMD Millipore

Other prominent vendors in the market are: Dow Chemical, FMC BioPolymer, Fuji Chemical Industry and Ingredion

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Wet granulation techniques are widely followed process for manufacturing tablets owing to the easy availability of the equipment required for the process, direct compression technique of tablet manufacturing is gaining popularity. This shift to direct compression technique will be due to the price constraints associated with wet granulation process. Direct compression technique employs binder excipients extensively, which is expected to propel the market growth.”

According to the report, the growth of the market depends on the increasing aging population in developing countries like China and India. The oral route is the most preferred route of drug administration in the elderly. Tablets, capsules, and solvents can be easily administered and handled. Therefore, the demand for orally administered drugs from the aging population will increase the consumption of binder excipients, thereby boosting market growth.

Further, the report states that high costs are involved in manufacturing different binder excipients, making new players hesitant to enter the market.
