High Potency APIs Market - Emerging Trends to Boost the Global Revenue Growth
Increasing Demand for Oncology Drugs

High Potency APIs are extremely effective pharmacologically active ingredients. They are highly specific in their action and offer significant efficiency even at low daily therapeutic doses. HPAPIs have the ability to target precise disease cells and are, hence, used in formulations for highly potent drugs.

Owing to their target release characteristics, HPAPIs find major applications in target therapies for cancer. Globally, there is a significant growth in the incidence of cancer. According to the WHO, in 2012, there were 14.1 million new cancer cases, 8.2 million cancer deaths, and 32.6 million people living with cancer (within 5 years of diagnosis) worldwide. The American cancer Society estimated that over 15.5 million American citizens were suffering from cancer as of January 2016, with over 1,688,780 new cancer cases expected to be diagnosed in 2017.

This growth in the number of cancer cases has a tremendous impact on the sales of cancer drugs across the globe. According to an article published in Nature Reviews, the pharmaceutical industrys 20 top-selling cancer drugs generate annual sales of over USD 50 billion worldwide, with Roche's Rituxan, Avastin, and Herceptin in the leading position generating USD 21 billion in sales.

Expected Revenue Growth:

The global HPAPI market is expected to reach USD 26.84 Billion by 2023 from USD 16.49 Billion in 2017, at a CAGR 8.7%. The base year considered for the study is 2017 and the forecast period is from 2018 to 2023.

Requirement of large investments

The cytotoxic nature of HPAPIs presents significant handling challenges and thus requires heavy investments for implementing specialized containment facilities that facilitate the safety of employees from exposure.

Although the HPAPIs market is an emerging and growing market, pharmaceutical manufacturers face significant challenges in upgrading their existing facilities that are capable of handling only low- or medium-potency APIs. Specialized containment to ensure protection of the employees and their environment from exposure accounts for a major cost. Contract manufacturers are required to heavily invest in building new facilities that are designed specifically for HPAPI manufacturing apart from the usual GMP production facilities; investments may sometimes amount to millions of dollars.

Manufacturers may also be required to invest in specialized facilities for HPAPI-antibody conjugations that incorporate both potent-compound handling and biologics processing capabilities. For instance, in October 2015, ADC Biotechnology (UK), invested USD 10 million to build a manufacturing facility for advanced anti-cancer drugs. These requirements of large investments is likely to restrain the growth of this market.

Opportunity in emerging markets

Emerging economies such as India, China, and the Middle East present high growth opportunities for players in the HPAPIs market. In most of these geographies, the market is expected to show a high growth rate in the coming years owing to their huge population, increasing prosperity, and improving longevity (albeit at differing rates).

Diseases like musculoskeletal diseases, glaucoma, and specifically cancer have a significant impact on the health status of people worldwide, with comparatively higher growth rates in developing countries. According to the WHO, in 2014, nearly 66% of all cancer-related deaths occurred in developing countries. Additionally, according to GLOBOCAN 2012, a total of 6.8 million new cancer cases were reported in 2012 in Asia; this is expected to reach 8.4 million cases by 2020, indicating an increase of ~24%.

Furthermore, developing regions have lenient and flexible regulations, which make these markets highly lucrative for providers who are unable to meet the stringent standards set by the federal government in the US. Moreover, developing countries like India and China offer extremely low manufacturing and labor costs and highly skilled labor; this encourages players in developed regions to invest in this market.

North America to dominate the HPAPIs market in 2018

In 2018, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the market followed by Europe. Factors such growing incidence of cancer, increasing investments in cancer research, technological advancements in HPAPI manufacturing, growing CMOs market, constructive government reforms like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, growing focus of leading pharmaceutical companies in the HPAPIs segment, and increasing demand for antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) are responsible for the large share of North America in the global HPAPIs market.
