The global specialty active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) market is anticipated to record a year-over-year growth rate of 7.9% and reach a market value of US$ 119,513.1 Mn in 2016. Small molecules will continue to account for the leading market revenue share by product type, accounting for over two-thirds share in 2016.
Staggering increase in the manufacturing of HPAPI (high potency API) will continue to influence the adoption of API positively. Popularity of peptide-based drugs and the patent expiry of blockbuster branded drugs in the near future is also expected to boost the growth of the market. However, complex manufacturing guidelines and stringent regulatory processes will continue to pose challenges to widespread adoption.
