Global Pharmaceutical Solvent Market: Overview

Solvents are chemical substances used in the drug manufacturing process. Solvents act as a reaction medium and are used in the purification and extraction process. They have the ability to extract a specific material without chemically altering the other materials. They find numerous applications in the pharmaceutical industry. Owing to these factors, the global pharmaceutical solvent market is expected to grow exponentially during the forecast period.     

Global Pharmaceutical Solvent Market: Notable Developments

Below are a few notable developments in the global pharmaceutical solvent market:          

  • Development of the AKVANO technology based on water-free solvent has provided a new growth platform for the global pharmaceutical solvent market. This technology has created new possibilities for the effective treatment of several dermatological diseases such as psoriasis and eczema. It uses a mixture of lipid components and water-free solvent which is applied on the skin. The solvent slowly evaporates after the application, leaving the lipids on the skin. The direct deposition of lipid speeds up the treatment and the recovery process.
  • The “green chemistry” initiative pertaining to the use of green materials and chemicals for drug manufacturing has scaled up the global pharmaceutical solvent market. This initiative focuses on the use of green solvents so as to mitigate the lurking environmental threats. This has led to the development and production of new green solvents, thereby propelling the pharmaceutical solvent market.

Prominent industries in the global pharmaceutical solvent market comprise Avantor Performance Materials, The Dow Chemical Company, Clariant, BASF SE, Sigma-Aldrich Company LLC, and Honeywell International Inc.

Global Pharmaceutical Solvent Market: Key Growth Dynamics

Alcoholic solvents are used in numerous major pharmaceutical drugs such as glycol, isopropanol, and ethanol. Consequently, a booming pharmaceutical and healthcare industry has highly driven the global pharmaceutical solvent market’s growth. Additionally, an increasing awareness regarding healthcare products has contributed to the pharmaceutical solvent market’s expansion.

An increasing disposable income in the developed economies such as the U.S. has amplified the expenditure on the medical products, thereby propelling the pharmaceutical solvent market’s growth.
