Report Highlights

Carbohydrate-based excipient products dominated the market in 2020, with a share of 36.2%, and this trend is expected to continue through the forecast period. The extensive use of starch, sucrose, and dextrose in various drug formulations can be primarily attributed to the dominant share of the segment. In addition, the increasing adoption of carbohydrates as bulking agents for assisting in the process of lyophilization for biomolecules such as proteins is further contributing to segment growth.

The starch segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 6.6% owing to its wide application in drug development. It can act as an efficient binder, diluent, and disintegrant that can be used for various non-prescription medications, biopharmaceuticals, and food supplements. The increasing application of starch is owing to its advantages such as cost-effectivity, inert nature, and high availability.

The segment is expected to witness a lucrative growth rate of 6.7% from 2021 to 2028. The growth in the segment can be attributed to the increasing protein therapeutics. Polyols are added in protein formulations for increasing tonicity and stability. Moreover, it has also been shown to offer greater thermodynamic stability which is highly essential for protein-based formulations.

North America represented the largest market share of 32.1% in 2020; growth in the region can be attributed to several factors such as the presence of key players, increasing drug development, and a large population base. 

Companies in this region are doing collaborations to develop biopharmaceutical excipients. For instance, in February 2020, ReForm Biologics LLC, and MilliporeSigma entered in collaboration for commercializing the company’s proprietary excipients that are used in biotherapeutic formulations. Under the collaborating agreement, MilliporeSigma will fund the R&D and commercialize ReForm Biologics’ excipients for promoting drug development.

In Asia Pacific, the market is expected to witness the fastest growth rate of over 7.0% owing to the presence of large CMOs involved in drug development. The countries in this region such as China, India, and South Korea are majorly involved with the development of biosimilars. There are several reasons for the extensive development of biosimilars such as affordability, favorable regulatory framework, cost advantages, and presence of a large population base. Hence, the development of biosimilars requires biopharmaceutical excipients to ensure drug stability.
