Pharmaceutical Lipids Market is expected to witness a CAGR of over 5% and surpass USD 7 Bn by 2030

According to a new market study by Future Market Insights (FMI), the pharmaceutical lipids market is forecasted to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.2% between 2020 and 2030. One of the key reasons for this growth is increased cases of various health issues including cancer, neurological diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and other chronic diseases in all worldwide locations

According to the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS), around 90% of drugs that are pipe and 40% of marketed drugs have poor solubility in water. On this premise, the preference for lipid-based formulations has been increasing in nutraceuticals, diagnostics, vaccines, and pharmaceuticals. This is expected to act as a major growth attribute to the market.

Furthermore, lipid-based formulations protect active compounds from biological transformation or degradation, thereby increasing the overall efficiency and shelf-life of drugs. Moreover, lipid-based particulate DDS change the biodistribution and consequently reduce the level of toxicity in numerous drugs. This improves the safety coefficient, thus fueling the market growth.

Owing to the growing demand for lipid nanocarriers due to better biocompatibility, market players are shifting from polymeric nanoparticles to the former. This is expected to bestow lucrative revenue opportunities in the forthcoming years.”
