Booming LATAM Pharma Business Pushes Demand for Excipients
“One of the primary factors promoting the growth of the Latin America excipients market now, and over the coming years, is the massive demand for excipients shown by the region’s pharmaceutical industry. Excipients are a high value commodity for the pharmaceutical industry as they are used as flavoring agents, tablet and capsule disintegrants, binders, as well as other common drug types. The Latin America pharmaceutical industry is expected to expand at a very high rate over the coming years, which is the lead reason to believe in the optimistic growth rate shown by the Latin America excipients market,” states a TMR analyst. There are expected to be plenty of opportunities for excipients manufacturers in this region.
The report also shows that the segment of solid oral drugs is expected to rise in production rates and demand over the coming years. This segment is therefore considered to be a high value application segment in the Latin America excipients market over the coming years.
Raw Material Costs Still a Problem for Multiple Drug Makers
The Latin America excipients market is currently battling the major issue of high raw material prices in the region. Their cost is high enough to completely deter most of the smaller manufacturers in the market, thereby restricting the overall growth rate of the Latin America excipients market. Corn, starch, and maize are the core ingredients of organic excipients, and all three already hold high priority and massive demands from the industries of food and beverage and renewable energy. The energy sector is looking to these raw materials to create sustainable energy sources, thereby creating a shorter resource pool for end users of the Latin America excipients market to pick one.
