Pharmaceutical excipients are crucial contents of a formulation that enable effective drug absorption. Excipients must suit the intended dosage form and comply with regulatory requirements

Pharmaceutical excipients are critical components of a pharmaceutical dosage form, ensuring drug safety and efficacy. Therefore, compatibility with API, adjacent excipients and dosage form are essential factors that need to be considered while selecting an excipient. Various types of excipients are used in a pharmaceutical formulations. This includes binders, diluents, glidents, disintegrants, emulsifiers, compressing agents, taste masking agents, lubricants, coating agents, sweeteners, and vehicles (base). Use of excipients is high in oral and topical dosage forms compared to parenteral. These excipients are extracted from different sources such as plant, animals, and minerals or are synthetically developed. The International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council (IPEC), formed in 1991, focuses on harmonizing manufacturing standards for pharmaceutical excipients globally.
Market Dynamics
Demand for high-quality excipients is more in developed economies, while affordability is the key criteria considered for price sensitive emerging economies. China has emerged as the largest supplier of low-cost pharmaceutical API and excipients. India is the other fast emerging market to which production of excipients is outsourced owing to lower labor and production costs. North America and Europe lead the market for excipients as the number of excipient manufacturers are high in these regions. Moreover, high cost of manufactured excipients generates higher revenue for these regions compared to cost of material produced by manufacturers in Asia Pacific. However, growing pharmaceutical drug price pressure across the globe is expected to drive growth of the markets in China and India characterized by high supply of low cost excipients.

Pharmaceutical excipients are crucial contents of a formulation that enable effective drug absorption. Excipients must suit the intended dosage form and comply with regulatory requirements i.e. pharmacopeial standards to ensure finished product quality. Moreover, their compatibility is crucial in dosage forms that involves taste masking, coating, controlled and sustained release, and oil base (emulsifiers). The International Pharmaceutical Excipient Councils (IPE) governs the global pharmaceutical excipient manufacturing by providing harmonized excipient guidelines to manufacturers.

Oral and topical segment is driving the pharmaceutical excipients market growth
Excipients are largely used in the production of oral dosage forms such as tablets, capsules, and liquids when compared to parenteral dosage forms. The growth of excipients usage in oral dosage forms is expected to be 7.2% over the forecast period. Local players entering the pharmaceutical industry mark their entry with oral dosage forms, as manufacturing of these are easier when compared to other dosage forms. Economies such as India, Brazil, China, and U.S. are few major pharmaceutical excipients markets, as they have large presence of regional pharmaceutical players. Therefore, demand for excipients is expected to be high in such economies. Moreover, growing topical solutions (cream, gel, eye drops, skin patch) in dermatology and pain management categories is also expected to increase the demand for excipients, thereby driving growth of the market.
