Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global pharmaceutical excipients market: ADM, Ashland, BASF, Evonik Industries, and Dow Chemical.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Associated British Foods, FMC, Lubrizol, and Roquette Pharma.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is demand for new excipients to develop easily consumable drugs. The global pharmaceutical excipients market is significantly driven by the increasing demand for drugs that can be consumed orally. The need to produce drugs that can be swallowed easily, primarily to enhance patient comfort, especially for older people and infants, plays a major role in pushing drug manufacturers to produce easily consumable tablets. This factor, in turn, is fueling the development of new excipients in the pharmaceutical industry.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growth in the pharmaceutical industry. The global pharmaceutical market is primarily driven by factors like changing lifestyles and unhealthy eating habits, an expanding aging population base, and increasing occurrences of chronic diseases.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is decreasing R&D expenditures. R&D efforts play a vital role in the development of any industry, and the global pharmaceutical excipients market is no exception. However, the R&D investments in the market are declining at present, which will have a negative impact on the growth of the market over the next five years.
