Published Date : Feb 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Sustained Release Excipients market size is expected to be worth around US$ 3.6 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Sustained Release Excipients market size was valued at US$ 965.9 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 10.1% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Increasing focus on novel drug delivery R&D and rising adoption of extended release formulations for the treatment of chronic diseases are major factors driving the market.

The use of sustained release drug formulations provides patients relief from these symptoms and helps maintain desired therapeutic drug levels in the body. In comparison to conventional drugs, sustained drug release technologies provide a wide range of benefits. Reduced dosage frequency, improved patient compliance, maintenance of the constant level of drug in blood plasma, lower instances of toxicity due to overdose, and higher cost-effectiveness, in the long run, are some of the major advantages of using this technology.

The global rise in the incidence of chronic and infectious diseases has also resulted in antibiotic resistance, which negatively affects the market for conventional dosage forms. Thus, alternative methods to manage and treat these diseases are being implemented. The use of sustained release formulations has been widely accepted among physicians in order to combat antibiotic resistance. Since these formulations create desired therapeutic drug levels in blood plasma and reduce dosage frequency, they are the preferred choice of formulation among physicians, which increases their demand.

Report Highlights

The oral route of delivery is the most preferred route of administration. The segment is expected to lead the market throughout the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to convenience in terms of storage, premeasured doses, portability, and noninvasive nature of the route. On the other hand, transdermal patches will emerge to be the fast-growing segment during the same period.

The intramuscular route provides rapid drug delivery and absorption, owing to which the segment is poised to represent a sizeable share in the market. Intravenous administration for sustained or prolonged acting drugs, such as long-acting injectable formulations, provide several advantages including assessed drug-release profile throughout a definite period of time, ease of application, better patient compliance, reduced dosage frequency, minimum adverse effects, and overall cost reduction of medical care

Ophthalmic route of delivery is also anticipated to post a noteworthy CAGR during the forecast period owing to the increasing number of product launches aiding treatment of cytomegalovirus, chronic non-infectious posterior uveitis, and diabetic macular edema.

Various manufacturers are developing products that help diabetic patients in managing the disease better. For instance, Bydureon BCise is an extended release system that delivers exenatide in patients and is indicated for weekly use. Also, Sustol (Granisetron) manufactured by Heron Therapeutics, Inc. is another example of a subcutaneously delivered drug that is an antiemetic used for management of nausea and vomiting, typically observed in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Polymers held the largest share in the sustained release excipients market in 2017 due to their wide usage in sustained release formulations. Higher contribution of sugars in sustained release formulations can be attributed to properties such as spherical shape and porous nature, which improves flowability and lowers friability. This makes it the choice of excipient for a wide range of pharmaceuticals.

Minerals are an important class of excipients owing to properties such as reactivity to acids, swelling capacity, specific surface area, and high absorption capacity. Use of titanium oxide in Amrix, Kadian, OxyContin, and Conzip as a major excipient is indicative of the increase in the utilization of minerals in various formulations, accelerating their growth.

Increasing use of gelatin, alcohol, and chitosan in sustained release formulations is also anticipated to propel segment growth. Use of gelatin in manufacturing powder, liquid, and oil-based pastes such as solids, semisolid, and liquid forms of formulations is expected to drive the gelatin segment in the future. Sugars used in drug formulations are also applicable as drug delivery agents in pulmonary route-based formulations.

Pharmaceutical companies are involved in developing extended drug delivery systems that would allow easy administration and improve drug efficacy. As sustained drug release systems are meticulously developed according to their usage, they prove to be beneficial for geriatric and pediatric populations. These factors are expected to impel segment growth over the forecast period.

Targeted drug delivery accounted for the largest market share in 2017, as a large number of market players have a strong product portfolio. Targeted delivery involves the delivery of the drug to a preferred site of action and prevents the drug from reaching unintended regions of the body. This averts the chances of drug toxicity. Lyrica (pregabalin) is one such drug by Pfizer, Inc. It is used for diabetic, peripheral neuropathic pain and postherpetic neuralgia.

The transdermal segment is expected to exhibit the fastest CAGR during the forecast period due to its rising use for the treatment of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and asthma. For instance, Corplex technology by Corium International, Inc. delivers small-molecule drugs through the skin, providing a simplified way to deliver drugs.

Microencapsulation has been gaining traction in the market with an increasing number of companies adopting this method to alter drug delivery mechanisms. It results in lower toxicity when compared to conventional drug delivery systems and these systems are, therefore, preferred for geriatric and pediatric patients.

The implant segment is projected to grow at a lucrative rate during the forecast period because of its advantages such as high efficiency and continuous maintenance of drug levels in a therapeutically desired range. Retisert is a sustained release implant designed by Bausch & Lomb Incorporated, which can be used for the treatment of glaucoma. The device provides fluocinolone acetonide locally for a period of 2.5 years and allows a steady predetermined rate of drug to be released.

In terms of region, North America held the largest revenue share in the market owing to high investment in R&D and the availability of highly sophisticated technologies in the region. Well-developed research infrastructure and the presence of leading pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies have also fueled the regional market. Moreover, the adoption of advanced technologies and growing focus on drug discovery drives this market.

There is a wide scope for growth of the market in Europe, which includes France, Spain, and Italy, due to the rising adoption of advanced drugs in these countries. Moreover, regulatory authorities, such as the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), are constantly working toward ensuring high safety standards and easy access to low-cost drugs.

The Asia Pacific market is expected to register the fastest growth rate due to factors such as developing healthcare infrastructure, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, and rising demand for highly effective therapeutics. According to the Indian Council of Medical Research, in 2016, around 1.45 million new cases of cancer were diagnosed in India, and this number is estimated to reach 1.73 million by 2020.

Moreover, geographic expansion and launch of new products by leading drug manufacturers are expected to drive the Asia Pacific market. For instance, in September 2017, Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd. launched Bupropion Hydrochloride Extended-Release Tablets, 300 mg, and 150 mg, in India.
