Global Pharmaceutical Lipids Industry Targets 5.0% CAGR, Enroot to US$8.04 Billion by 2033 | Notes Future Market Insights

Global Pharmaceutical Lipids Industry

The Global Pharmaceutical Lipids Industry is poised for an extraordinary growth trajectory, according to the latest analysis by Future Market Insights (FMI). FMI’s comprehensive study reveals a projected Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.0%, underlining a significant upswing in the market during the forecast period.

In 2023, the industry is anticipated to generate sales amounting to $4.93 billion, reflecting a substantial increase in its market value. Fast forward to 2033, and the Global Pharmaceutical Lipids Industry is forecasted to reach an impressive value of $8.04 billion, showcasing its substantial potential for expansion.

This forecast represents a noteworthy advancement from the market’s value of $4.44 billion in 2021, as per FMI’s previous market analysis. The Global Pharmaceutical Lipids Industry has consistently demonstrated growth, propelled by a robust 5.1% CAGR, with expectations to achieve a value of $7.70 billion by 2032.

Furthermore, efforts by governments and regulatory agencies in developed nations, such as the U.S. and the U.K., to streamline the approval process for excipients, are expected to push sales in the market. Because of their cost-effectiveness and patient compliance, oral solid dosage forms are the dominant mode of delivery in the Global Pharmaceutical Lipids Industry and are the preferred option for many pharmaceutical products.

The use of capsules or tablets for drug delivery provides advantages such as increased physical and chemical stability, ease of handling, distinct brand recognition based on colour and shape, and controlled-release options. The majority of liposomal drugs are derived from oral solid drug formulations. The ease of use among patients, particularly children, is expected to boost sales of oral drugs, which will have a direct impact on pharmaceutical lipid sales.

For example, conventional hard solid tablets are difficult to swallow for approximately 50% of patients. This has prompted pharmaceutical companies to create more innovative solid oral product forms, such as effervescent tablets, orally disintegrating granules (ODGs), lozenges, chewable tablets, and instant drinks. This is expected to generate significant demand for liposomal excipients during the forecast period, boosting market growth.

 “Increasing investments in contract manufacturing of pharmaceutical lipids, along with growing demand for oral solid drug formulation is expected to augment the growth in the market over the forecast period,” says an FMI analyst. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Triglyceride sales are expected to account for more than 44.3% of the market by 2032, rising at a 5.1% CAGR during the forecast period.
  • By form, the semi-solid segment commands more than 60.0% of the market in 2021 and is expected to account for 62.7% of the total market share by 2032.
  • In terms of source, sales of semi-synthetic sources will increase at a 5.8% CAGR.
  • In 2021, applications in the conventional lipid-based drug delivery systems (LBDDS) segment held a commanding 64.4% share.
  • The most widely used route of administration will be oral pharmaceutical lipids. In 2021, the segment held 40.8% of the total market share.
  • The U.S. will continue dominating the North America pharmaceutical lipids market over the forecast period owing to the presence of a robust healthcare sector.
  • Demand in the U.K. pharmaceutical lipids market will surge at a 5.1% CAGR over the assessment period.
  • Sales in the India market are slated to increase at a 5.2% CAGR, accounting for a lion’s share in the South Asia pharmaceutical lipids market.
