The companies are adopting inorganic and organic growth strategies to expand their global footprints and product portfolio to meet the rising demands for the pharmaceutical intermediate. For instance, in January 2021, Pritzker Private Capital, a leader in family direct investing, acquired the Vertellus group of companies, a specialty chemicals manufacturer.

In 2020, the GMP segment accounted for the global pharmaceutical intermediate market's a largerst market share of the global pharmaceutical intermediate market. The market growth for this segment can be attributed to increase in adoption of good manufacturing practices (GMP) by pharmaceutical companies. Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) are regulations by the US Food and Drug Administration that ensure that pharmaceutical products are consistently produced as per the quality standards. These regulations are designed to reduce the risks involved in the production of pharmaceuticals that cannot be eliminated through testing the finished product.

The surging prevalence of infectious diseases, especially in Southeast Asia, is also likely to propel the demand for APIs in the coming years, eventually driving the growth of the pharmaceutical intermediate market. For instance, as per the Revised National Tuberculosis Control Programme Report, around 4.4 lakh patients died due to tuberculosis in India in 2018, that is 29% of the total 1.5 million deaths caused by the disease across the world. Thus, such high prevalence of chronic diseases and infectious diseases is bolstering the demand for drugs, eventually highlighting the need of pharmaceutical intermediates.

Pharmaceutical intermediates are the building blocks of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). These are raw materials that undergo molecular change or processing during bulk drug production. Thus, the requirement of pharmaceutical intermediates increases with the rise in demand for drugs to treat chronic diseases. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 6 in 10 adults in the US suffer from at least one chronic disease such as cancer, heart disease, lung disease, stroke, neurological disease, diabetes, and kidney diseases. Moreover, 4 in 10 adults in the country have two or more chronic diseases. Additionally, according to the press release by the European Chronic Disease Alliance (ECDA), in 2014, 9 out of 10 people in Europe die due to chronic diseases. Thus, 70–80% of the total healthcare costs are spent on the management of chronic diseases.
