Asia-Pacific Excipients Market Analysis and Size
Increasing demand for alternative routes of delivery/dosage forms and increasing need for pharmaceutical products across varied therapeutic areas are the major drivers which propelled the demand of the market in the forecast period of 2023 to 2030. Pharmaceutical excipients involve everything in a drug except that of the active pharmaceutical ingredients. These molecules don’t possess any medicinal property and are ultimately used for enhancing the physiological absorption of the drug. Excipients are inert in nature and it allows the drug molecule to apply to patients in the right form. Traditionally the excipients were simple molecules but the innovation in technology and increasing demand for novel drug delivery systems enhanced the excipients complexity as well. Excipients promote the patient’s drug acceptability and boost up the drug stability and its bioavailability. Moreover, excipients help in the maintenance of drug integrity that helps in drug storage.

Excipients are inactive substances that are added to pharmaceutical products or drugs to serve various purposes. They are an essential component of drug formulations and play a crucial role in ensuring the stability, effectiveness, and safety of the medication. Excipients are typically added in small quantities and do not have any therapeutic effect on their own. It's important to note that the selection of excipients depends on the specific requirements of the drug formulation, dosage form, and intended use. Regulatory bodies, such as the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.), provide guidelines and specifications for the quality and use of excipients in pharmaceutical products.
