SEATTLE, March 29, 2021, (PHARMIWEB) — Global Sugar-based Excipients Market

An excipient is an inactive substance formulated with the active ingredient of a particular medication for the purpose of bulking up the route of administration that contains potent active ingredients. These substances help improve the bulkiness and dissolution rate of the drug and are crucial in drug delivery within the body. A sugar-based excipient is required in case the conventional tablet contains a bitter drug substance, or more importantly, if the tablet is chewable.

Sweeteners are added in tablets to impart sweetness to the drugs. Sucrose is the standard against, which all sweeteners, both artificial and natural, are measured. Apart from being sweeter than sucrose, artificial sweeteners have the advantage of not disturbing blood sugar levels of pre-diabetic or diabetic patients, and they are considered to be non-cariogenic. Sugar-based excipients are widely used as ingredients in pharmaceutical tableting. They are used for taste masking of bitter drugs and as bulking agents. Dextrose, fructose, mannitol, sorbitol, and xylitol are few examples of sugar-based excipients that are mainly used.

Global Sugar-based Excipients Market Dynamics

Increasing use of co-processed excipients and rising development of orally disintegrating tablets (ODTs) are major factors that are expected to boost growth of sugar-based excipients market over the forecast period. ODTs are solid dosage forms containing medicinal substances, which disintegrate rapidly, generally in few seconds, when placed on the tongue. Research on delivering biological molecules through the oral route have widened the scope of ODT technology, which further drive growth of the market. According to the American Pharmaceutical Review 2016, over 35 products have been launched using Zydis ODT technology in over 60 countries worldwide. Furthermore, the growing use of sugar alcohols such as mannitol in a wide range of oral dosage and high adaptability in formulation technologies, such as ODTs, are expected to drive the global sugar-based excipients market growth over the forecast period. Sugar alcohol is granular and white like sugar, and is used as a sugar alternative. The sugar alcohols differ in terms of calorie content and sweetness level, while their sweetness levels range from 50% to 100%.

The high requirement for oral route of administration, resulting from the increased use of tablets, capsules, solutions, and emulsions for various therapeutic areas, is anticipated to drive the global market growth. Oral route of administration forms the largest category of pharmaceutical dosage. Although an excipient is pharmacologically inactive and does not interact with the active drug ingredients or other excipients, a few excipients do meet the particular criteria. Some sugar-based excipients lead to various side effects and therefore, should not be consumed. For instance, Aspartame, which is used as a sweetener in drugs, is not prescribed to patients with phenylketonuria.

It is known that all sugar-based excipients do not have a fast dissolution rate and are not very compatible or compressible. However, incompatibility with the stringent government regulations for drug manufacturing and excipient usage are expected to hinder the global sugar-based excipients market growth. For instance, the European Medicines Agency suggested that the usage of an excipient should be well reasoned, which explains its role and justification for the amount used.

Global Sugar-based Excipients Market – Regional Insights

The North America sugar-based excipients market is expected to hold a dominant position in the global sugar-based excipients market over the forecast period, owing to the increased usage of generic drugs in the region. Increasing investments in drug development and rising production of generic drugs will drive growth of sugar-based excipient market in Europe. Significant growth in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry, favorable government policies, low-cost manufacturing, and increasing demand for generic drugs, especially in emerging economies directly contributes to the market growth. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) data, in 2017, Indian firms received around 40% of the new U.S. approvals for generics with a wider base of companies.
