  • Published Date: March 17, 2023

Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Market size is anticipated to cross USD 453.5 billion by 2032, as per a new research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

Surging demand for generic drugs as the chief driver for the active pharmaceutical ingredients industry trends. For instance, chronic illnesses have a significant financial impact on the American healthcare system, further reducing the quality of life of millions of people. According to a CDC report, 6 out of 10 US citizens suffer from chronic diseases, which is the main source of disability and death in the country. This has propelled health expenses and increased the disease burden, which, in turn, is speculated to drive the growth for cost-effective solutions that address clinical needs.

Introduction of novel pharmaceutical ingredients to help infectious diseases segment

Active pharmaceutical ingredients market from the infectious diseases therapeutic category is likely to grow at a CAGR of 7% by 2032. The segment growth is attributable to the rise in infectious diseases in both humans and animals, as well as the progression of novel active pharmaceutical ingredients for the treatment of these illnesses.

Rising prominence of chemical synthesis to accelerate market

Chemical-based API segment held over 59% revenue share in the industry in 2022. The soaring usage of chemical synthesis in this API manufacturing can be attributed to recent developments in the fields of photoredox catalysis, electrochemistry, C-H activation, reductive coupling, and flow chemistry. In a research study, a direct C-H allylation of structurally diverse alcohols was combined for photoredox catalysis of pharmaceuticals and natural products.
