STUDY OBJECTIVES


Pharmaceutical excipients are natural or synthetic ingredients used along with the active ingredient in a drug formulation. Pharmaceutical excipients are used as fillers and diluents, binders, suspension and viscosity agents, coatings, flavoring agents, disintegrants, colorants, lubricants and glidants and preservatives. Excipients are categorized into three main classes, organic excipients, inorganic excipients and USP water (purified water produced per United States Pharmacopeia {USP} standards).

BCC’s goal in conducting this study is to provide an overview of the current and future global market for pharmaceutical excipients. This report explores present and future strategies within the market as well as innovations in the market, hold ups and needs.

The classifications, comparisons and usage of these products are also discussed.

A detailed analysis of the pharmaceutical excipients industry structure has been conducted. Revenues are broken down by region. Sales figures are estimated for the five-year period from 2015 through 2020. The report also covers significant patents and their allotments in each category.
