Brand Strategy: Pharmaceutical Industry
Active ingredient is used in the production of pharmaceutical drugs as a biologically active compound. The market for active ingredient is driven by a number of factors including increased prevalence of chronic diseases, growing incidences of age-related diseases, and technological advancements in API manufacturing. Additionally, patent expiration of major drugs that increase generic drug sales and government initiatives are influencing the market’s growth.
However, our analysis of the global pharmaceutical industry shows that active ingredient manufacturers are facing challenges in terms of:
- Competition: Competition is increasing for both active ingredient suppliers and customers. Additionally, generic companies are finding that mergers, acquisitions, and regulatory issues have taken some facilities out of the running as supply partners. Generic active ingredient manufacturers are also challenged with developing syntheses that don’t infringe on patents while keeping costs low.
- Regulatory requirements: Today, regulatory requirements are tightening and will likely continue to do so with a push for more transparency in the supply chain in the coming years. This could result in the need for certification for active ingredient manufacturing practices for key intermediates and raw materials.
