Latin America Pharmaceutical Excipients Market Outlook to 2024 by Functionality and Country – Includes Profiles on Ashland, BASF, DowDuPont, Roquette, and Kerry Group –

March 20, 2019 Off By BusinessWire

America Pharmaceutical Excipients Market by Functionality (Fillers,
Coating, Disintegrants, Binders, Lubricants, Preservatives, Emulsifying
Agents, Lubricants, Glidants, Diluents), Country (Mexico, Argentina,
Columbia, Peru) – Forecast to 2024”
report has been added to’s

The Latin America pharmaceutical excipients market is projected to reach
USD 579 million by 2024 from USD 403 million in 2019, at a CAGR of 7.5%.

Factors such as the growing pharmaceuticals industry coupled with
advancements in functional excipients, the growing generics market
propelled by patent cliffs, and the rapidly growing biopharmaceuticals
sector are driving the market for pharmaceutical excipients.

The emergence of multifunctional and co-processed excipients, shifting
the focus of pharmaceutical manufacturing to emerging markets, and the
growing biologics & biosimilars industry also present significant
opportunities for market growth.

However, the increasing regulatory stringency regarding the approval of
drugs and excipients along with the cost and time-intensive drug
development process are expected to restrain the growth of this market
during the forecast period.

The prominent players in the Latin American pharmaceutical excipients
market are DowDuPont (US), Roquette (France), Ashland (US), BASF
(Germany), and Kerry Group (Ireland).

The lubricants & glidants segment is expected to grow at the
highest rate during the forecast period

Based on functionality, pharmaceutical excipients are categorized as
fillers & diluents, binders, suspending & viscosity agents, flavoring
agents & sweeteners, coating agents, colorants, disintegrants,
lubricants & glidants, preservatives, emulsifiers & solubilizers, and
other functionalities.

The lubricants & glidants segment is projected to witness the highest
growth in the LATAM pharmaceutical excipients market during the forecast
period. This growth is attributed to the benefits of lubricants to
reduce the clumping of ingredients and friction between a tablet and the
dye cavity, ensuring tablet formation, and the advantages of glidants to
improve the flow properties of a formulation by reducing interparticle
friction and cohesion.

Argentina is projected to witness the highest growth during
the forecast period

Argentina is expected to register the highest growth in the LATAM
pharmaceutical excipients during the forecast period. The rising
production & consumption of pharmaceutical products, large pool of
domestic pharmaceutical manufacturers, rising pharmaceutical
expenditure, growing investments by multinational market players in
Argentina, growing production of biosimilar products, and rising burden
of diseases are factors driving the growth of this segment.
