Drug Formulation Market is expected to reach US$ 2.87 Trillion by 2032

Over the projected period of 2022 to 2032, global demand for drug formulation is expected to grow at a 5.6% CAGR. The pharmaceutical formulations market is expected to be worth $1.58 trillion by 2022. Oral formulations are expected to rise exponentially at a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period, according to the study.

As pharmaceuticals enhance our quality of life, there is an increased demand for novel drugs formulation that would offer effective clinical care with a cost-effective manufacturing process. Biologics have proven to be an effective treatment option for chronic disease treatment. Pharmaceutical companies are being compelled by the rise of biosimilars to either innovate or lower prices to compete. This has been stimulating innovation in the field of biologics. As there are currently 37 approved biosimilars by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A significant portion of this expansion occurred in 2019 when the number of biosimilars that were approved increased by 65% and the number of such medicines that were made available in the United States increased by 157%.

However, manufacturers, payers, and providers anticipate that biosimilar competition will result in persistent price reductions, as demonstrated by the adoption of biosimilars in Europe over the past 13 years.

Manufacturers will be encouraged to cut the prices of their products as the number of treatment options for a particular sickness or condition increases that expects to drive the drug formulation market growth in coming years.
