DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Pharmaceutical Excipients Market by Product (Organic Chemicals (Carbohydrates), Inorganic Chemicals (Calcium Phosphate)), Functionality (Fillers, Binders, Lubricants, Preservatives), Formulation (Tablets, Capsules, Parenteral) – Global Forecast to 2027” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The pharmaceutical excipients market is projected to reach USD 11.5 Billion by 2027 from USD 8.6 Billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period.

The growth can be attributed to the expanding pharmaceutical industry which has fueled the drug production thereby increasing consumption rate for excipients. Additionally, factors like functional excipients development and upsurge in generics market is also likely to propel market growth.

The fillers & diluents functionality accounted for the largest share of the market in 2021

The fillers and diluents market is expected to grow due to the rising use of fillers and diluents in developing and producing solid oral drugs. From the manufacturer’s perspective, fillers and diluents offer stability and ease in preparation, packaging, shipping, and dispensing; for patients, they improve the taste of the formulation and provide ease of administration and handling (of the drug).

The oral formulations accounted for the major share of the pharmaceutical excipients market in 2021

The rapidly growing biopharmaceutical industry and increased generics production are the key growth drivers for this segment growth. Furthermore, the oral route of administration is the most common and traditional route for drug delivery. This has also boosted the segment market growth.
