Market Segmentation

The worldwide API market has been segmented on the basis of manufacturing process, type of synthesis, API formulation, application, molecule.

 In terms of manufacturing, the market can be fragmented into captive manufacturing and contract manufacturing. Out of these, the contract manufacturing segment can expect a profitable run during the review period at the highest growth rate, backed by the increasing trend of outsourcing of API manufacturing by the pharmaceutical companies, which lets them focus more on core competencies.

Depending on the synthesis, the market is considered for synthetic and biotech, wherein the synthetic API market is set to be unbeatable with the maximum share of the global market. Meanwhile, the biotech segment has displayed a considerable growth pattern in recent years, which is expected to surge further at a relatively higher CAGR owing to the reduced side effects of biotech synthesis. Furthermore, the biotech segment is split into monoclonal antibodies, recombinant proteins, vaccines, and others. At present, the monoclonal antibodies segment holds the top position, whereas the recombinant proteins segment is slated to expand at the fastest rate during the appraisal period as recombinant proteins find an increasing number of applications within the pharmaceutical industry.

With respect to the API formulation, the market is categorized as generic API and innovative API. Growing patent expirations have been responsible for the leading position of the generic API segment, at a projected CAGR of 4.62% during the conjectured time frame.

The market, application-wise, can be broken down into cardiovascular disease, oncology, neurological disorders, orthopedic disorders, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urology, and others. Here, the oncology segment is the current holder of the biggest market share, since the occurrences of cancer has surged at a substantial pace around the world. The segment is deemed to rise at a growth rate of 5.48% in the coming years.

The API market, on the basis of molecule, caters to small molecule and large molecule. Although the report identified the small molecule segment as the largest market in 2017, the large molecule segment is reckoned to cross the former’s valuation at a higher CAGR in the near future. The main reasons being the increasing focus on research and development of advanced APIs, including biologics that strive to meet with the unmet needs of patients.
