Building Blocks for API Leading Market Segment in terms of Type

Based on type, the global pharmaceutical chemicals market has been segmented into solvents, reagents or catalysts, KSMs or intermediates, and building blocks for APIs or advanced intermediates. The building blocks for APIs/advanced intermediates segment is expected to drive the global pharmaceutical chemicals market during the forecast period. This is due to the growing demand for various APIs for different therapeutic applications as it is of most importance in drug manufacturing. An increase in trend is seen in the outsourcing of building blocks for APIs and advanced intermediates manufactured by pharmaceutical companies. This aids them in reducing the manufacturing and infrastructure expenses. Increase in research in the pharmaceutical chemical industry is expected to boost the number of research laboratories. However, the higher cost of manufacturing of building blocks for APIs and advanced intermediates is a restraint of the segment. The key starting materials or intermediates segment constitutes the second major share of the global pharmaceutical chemicals market.

USA makes North America Most Lucrative Region

Geographically, North America accounted for the maximum, 47.9%, share of the total demand in the global pharmaceutical chemicals market in 2016. The strength of the demand from North America can be ascribed to the increase in demand from consumer base in the region, primarily from the developed countries of the U.S. and Canada. The U.S. houses the headquarters and prominent shareholders of some of the leading companies operating in this market, which is also in the favor of the North America pharmaceutical chemicals market. Europe also served a prominent share of demand at 25.1% in the global pharmaceutical chemicals market in 2016 and is expected to flourish further during the forecast period. That being said, the analysts of the report have highlighted Asia Pacific as a region with tremendous opportunities, projecting the demand from the region to increment at an above-average CAGR of 10.7% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025.  The global market share of Latin America and Middle East and Africa is expected to increase, but at a slow pace in the near future.

Lonza Group, BASF SE, Johnson Matthey, Lanxess, Dishman Group, Vertellus Holdings LLC, Porton Fine Chemicals, and Jubilant Life Sciences Ltd are some of the key companies currently operating in the global pharmaceutical chemicals market. Most of these vendors are aspiring to have a foray in the region of Asia Pacific via joint ventures and collaborations in order to increase their shares.
