Pharmaceutical Lipids Gaining Traction as a Reliable Drug Delivery System; High Cost Effectiveness Driving Growth

According to a study by Future Market Insights (FMI), the global pharmaceutical lipids market is projected to grow at 10.7 % CAGR throughout the forecast period of 2021 to 2031. Rising prevalence of neurological and cardiovascular diseases and rise in per capita income in emerging economies accelerates the pharmaceutical lipids market demand.

According to CMS’ Office of the Actuary, Overall healthcare spending grew at a faster rate than overall economic growth in the United States in 2019. Increased healthcare spending, higher use of specialty medicine to cure infection will fuel the market growth during the forecast period.

Increasing demand for modified oral solid drugs formulations like orally disintegrating granules (ODGs), effervescent tablets, instant drinks, chewable tablets, and lozenges as an alternative to regular difficult to swallow solid tablets will fuel the pharmaceutical lipids market demand.

Extensive research on liposomes towards developing multi-functional, highly biocompatible pharmaceutical lipids will positively influence the market growth.

COVID-19 pandemic acted as a temporary roadblock in pharmaceutical lipids market growth due to sharp decline in market demand. Disrupted supply chain, limited transportation under travelling restrictions and low production led to short term negative growth.

With opening of trading routes and timely implementation of development plans for raw material import alongside growing e-commerce will fuel rapid market recovery.

“Hyperlipidemia is a medical condition that damages coronary arteries and dangerous for patients with coronary heart illness. Increasing number of patients suffering from coronary heart diseases and hyperlipidemia will drive the pharmaceutical lipids market growth during the assessment period,” remarks the FMI analyst.
