Rise in Incidence & Prevalence of Diseases, Increase in Entry of Various Companies, and Surge in Launch of New APIs to Drive Global Market
The active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) market is projected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period, owing to rise in cases of various chronic diseases. The increase in incidence of chronic diseases drives the global active pharmaceutical ingredients market. In the past few decades, the incidence of chronic diseases, including diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), coronary artery disease, arthritis, asthma, hepatitis, and cancer has increased significantly in major regions across the globe. This could be attributed to the increase in the geriatric population across the world (by 2050, more than 20% of the global population is anticipated to be aged over 65 years), changing lifestyles, and dietary changes as a result of rapid urbanization.
According to the International Diabetes Federation, 463 million people across the world were diagnosed with diabetes in 2019. Moreover, the number of new cancer cases per year is expected to increase to 23.6 million by 2030. Apart from cancer, a number of other diseases has shown rise in prevalence rates. Rise in prevalence of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes; surge in sedentary lifestyle, and increase in geriatric population are the key drivers of the active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) market.
The increase in launch of various APIs drives the global active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) market. For instance, in 2018, Pfizer announced the launch of Retacrit, a biosimilar of Amgen’s Epogen for the treatment of anemia.

In House Manufacturing to Dominate Global Market
In terms of manufacture type, the global active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) market has been segmented into in house manufacturing and contract manufacturing. The in house manufacturing segment dominated the global active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) market in 2020 and the trend is projected to continue during the forecast period. Global players, such as Merck KGaA, prefer in-house production of APIs. This is a major factor driving the segment. These players believe that in house manufacture provides control of the process from start to finish. It offers the flexibility to adapt as and when required. This is especially useful when a company wants to respond to the market quickly and make a consumer-led change to the product, as it does not have to go through another company or rely on anyone else. These factors are anticipated to boost the growth of the segment during the forecast period.
Labor costs constitute majority of the cost of any manufacturing process. Outsourcing manufacturing eliminates the responsibility and costs involved in hiring the staff required to do the job properly. This is a major factor likely to drive the demand for contract manufacturing in the near future.
Branded or Innovative Prescription Drugs to be Highly Lucrative
Based on drug type, the global active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) market has been categorized into branded or innovative prescription drugs, generic prescription drugs, and OTC drugs. The branded or innovative prescription drugs segment accounted for a prominent share of the global active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) market in 2020. According to TMR Research, medicine use has continued to rise, with people in the U.S. filling 5.8 billion prescriptions in 2018, an increase of 2.7% over the previous year. This was largely driven by more patients receiving existing branded drugs and using newly launched drugs.
