Pharmaceutical Intermediates Market Competitive Landscape

Pfizer Inc., .; Sanofi, ; BASF SE, ; Lianhe Chemical Technology Co., Ltd, ; Dishman Carbogen Amcis Ltd, ; Codexis, ; Midas Pharma GmbH, ; chiracon GmbH, ; Dextra Laboratories Limited, ; and Vertellus Holdings LLC are among the leading companies operating in the pharmaceutical intermediate market.

Headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind., Vertellus is a leading provider of specialty chemicals for the healthcare, personal care, food & agriculture, coatings, and transportation markets.

Rising Prevalence of Chronic Diseases and Infectious Diseases

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.

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.
