By formulation, the oral formulations segment is estimated to account for the largest share of this market in 2019

Based on formulation, the pharmaceutical excipients market is segmented into oral, topical, parenteral, and other formulations. In 2018, oral formulations accounted for a major share of the pharmaceutical excipients market, mainly because oral formulations are the most common route of drug delivery. Owing to the shrinking pipeline of new chemical entities (NCEs), companies are increasingly focusing on developing orally disintegrating tablets (ODTs) and other novel methods of oral drug delivery. There is also a growing trend towards sachet formulations.
