Excipients which are inactive substance are generally used as a carrier for the active ingredients in medicines. In most of the cases, active substances may not be absorbed in the human body easily, in such a case the active ingredient is mixed or dissolved with an excipient. Excipients also allow convenient and accurate dosage by bulking up formulation that contains very potent active ingredients. Excipients used in medication may vary according to the route of administration - for rectal administration a different excipient is used which is then added with active ingredients to produce suppositories whereas excipients used in tablets and capsules for oral administration are different. 
 
The excipient value chain starts with the raw material which may be starch, maize etc in the case of manufacturing organic excipients. The raw material is processed using either biopharmaceutical process or chemical process to manufacture excipients. The chemical process involves purification, crystallisation and further drying to ultimately manufacture excipients. The excipients are then supplied to the end user. 
 
The global market for excipients is growing at a modest growth rate along with the growth of the global pharmaceuticals market. The excipients market is also subjected to grow with the growth of global cosmetics/personal care and food industries where excipients are used as diluents, fillers, colorants etc.
