North America to Retain Position

Geographically, Asia Pacific, North America, the Middle East and Africa, Europe, and Latin America have emerged as the main regional markets for pharmaceutical chemicals across the world. Among these, North America is leading the global market and this scenario is likely to remain the same over the next few years. In 2016, the North America market for pharmaceutical chemicals acquired a share of nearly 48% in the overall market. The rise in the demand from consumers in the region, especially from developed countries, such as the U.S. and Canada, is the key factor that has been driving the market for pharmaceutical chemicals in North America and is expected to continue doing so over the forthcoming years. Europe and Asia Pacific are also expected to witness considerable growth in their respective markets in the near future, states the market study.
