Topical Excipients Market

Excipients are very important during the formulation of active pharmaceutical ingredient. It has an important role in delivering the drug in the human body. It has no medicinal properties but streamlines the production of drug molecules and promotes physical absorption of drug. They are useful in enhancing the physical properties of drug formulation such as disintegrating time, lubricant, flowability, taste masking etc. The organic chemicals are most frequently used excipients in drug formulation owing to its enhanced compatibility with the active pharmaceutical ingredient. Organic chemicals have undergone technical modification during the novel drug delivery studies thereby improving the flowability, drug absorption capacity, and disintegration time of drug formulation. Inorganic chemicals due to its inert nature are mostly used as fillers and taste masking agent in drug formulation. Manufacturers influencing the topical excipients market are Ashland, Inc., AkzoNobel, Roquette Group, BASF SE, J. M. Huber Corporation, The DOW Chemical Company, The Lubrizol Corporation, FMC Corporation, Evonik Industries AG, Merck Millipore, Associated British Foods Plc, Croda International Plc, Archer Daniels Midland Company and Others.

Based on function, the topical excipients market is categorized into:

  • Buffers
  • Adsorbents
  • Permeation Enhancers
  • Surfactants
  • Stabilizers
  • Emulsifiers
  • Preservatives
  • Chelating Agents
  • Polymers
  • Humectants
  • Others (Co-Solvents, Preservatives, Thickening Agent and Smoothening Agents)

Topical Excipients Market

On the basis of functional properties of excipients they are utilized for making solid, semisolid and liquid drug formulation. Stabilizers and emulsifiers are mostly used in the semisolid and liquid dosage form. Stabilizers such as benzophenone and butylated hydroxytoluene derivatives are chemical moieties which prevents chemical, oxidative and light sensitive degradation of the active pharmaceutical ingredients.  Emulsifiers such as lecithin and taurocholic acid enhances the miscibility of oil-liquid and liquid-gas phases to promote product shelf life and attain smooth drug delivery. Preservatives and buffers are mandatory excipients in a drug formulation as they preserve and protect the drug formulation from microbial contamination and drug deterioration due to change in pH, which if unchecked would result into serious adverse effects. Tremendous research is taking place with surfactants where cationic surfactants are developed in different micelle concentration for enhancing drug delivery.

For the purpose of this study, the global topical excipients market is categorized into the following regional and country specific markets:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
