High Potency APIs Market – Advancements In Hpapi Manufacturing Technologies

Opportunity in Emerging Markets:

Emerging economies such as India, China, and the Middle East present high growth opportunities for players in the HPAPIs market. In most of these geographies, the market is expected to show a high growth rate in the coming years owing to their huge population, increasing prosperity, and improving longevity (albeit at differing rates).

Diseases like musculoskeletal diseases, glaucoma, and specifically cancer have a significant impact on the health status of people worldwide, with comparatively higher growth rates in developing countries. According to the WHO, in 2014, nearly 66% of all cancer-related deaths occurred in developing countries. Additionally, according to GLOBOCAN 2012, a total of 6.8 million new cancer cases were reported in 2012 in Asia; this is expected to reach 8.4 million cases by 2020, indicating an increase of ~24%.

Furthermore, developing regions have lenient and flexible regulations, which make these markets highly lucrative for providers who are unable to meet the stringent standards set by the federal government in the US. Moreover, developing countries like India and China offer extremely low manufacturing and labor costs and highly skilled labor; this encourages players in developed regions to invest in this market.

Constant evolution of industry standards and technologies

One of the major challenges faced by the players in this market, especially CMOs that offer HPAPI manufacturing services, is the continual evolution of industry standards, technologies, and regulations. Companies that are willing to enter this marker are required to adopt these newer technologies, which generally translates to huge investments. For example, SAFC (US) had to upgrade its HPAPI manufacturing facility in the US in 2016 to include more robust analytical technologies with improved sensitivity and detection levels that allow for the determination of potential API carryover at part-per-billion levels. Such a rapidly evolving environment poses a challenge to the players in this market.

Expected Revenue Growth:

The Global HPAPIs Market is expected to reach USD 26.84 Billion by 2023 from USD 17.72 Billion in 2018, at a CAGR 8.7%.

Major Growth Boosters:

The growth in this market is driven by factors such as increasing demand for oncology drugs, growing demand for antibody-drug conjugates, increasing focus of leading pharmaceutical companies on HPAPIs, advancements in HPAPI manufacturing technologies, and growing focus on precision medicine.

The innovative HPAPIs segment to dominate the market in 2018

Based on type, the HPAPIs market is segmented into innovative and generic HPAPIs. In 2018, the innovative HPAPIs segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. The large share can be attributed to the increased investments of innovator companies in R&D, manufacture, marketing, and supply of innovative HPAPIs as the revenue generated from these molecules are considerably high.

North America to dominate the HPAPIs market in 2018

In 2018, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the market followed by Europe. Factors such growing incidence of cancer, increasing investments in cancer research, technological advancements in HPAPI manufacturing, growing CMOs market, constructive government reforms like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, growing focus of leading pharmaceutical companies in the HPAPIs segment, and increasing demand for antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) are responsible for the large share of North America in the global HPAPIs market.
