  • 16 Oct 2019

Global Sugar Based Excipients Market is expected to value over USD 1 billion by 2026 end and register a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period 2019 to 2026.


The key factors stimulating the sugar-based excipients market growth are increased utilization of excipients that are co-processed, rapid augmentation in generics and consistent improvements in orally disintegrating tablets (ODTs). The mannitol practice with a variety of doses has made the sugar alcohols the highest proliferating amongst other sugar-based excipients. The high adoption rate of alcohol-based sugars in the latest formulation technologies such as the orally disintegrating tablets is the primary reason for the sugar alcohol segment to witness substantial growth in the future. According to the type of sugar-based excipients, the sugar- based excipient in granular form has accounted for a large sugar-based excipients market share by being prominently used in the pharmaceutical sector.

Even though the necessity and demand of sugar based excipients is consistently increasing, some factors such as a lack of manufacturing sites approved by the FDA owing to stringent necessities of regulations may impede the market growth significantly.

Sugar-based excipients have experienced a widespread approval for its use as an ingredient in making pharmaceutical tablets. Furthermore, they can be utilized to compensate the active agents’ bitter taste thus making it more pleasant to taste. Due to the direct compression becoming the default method of manufacturing tablets, the insistence for sugar-based excipients that are compressed has increased.


Key market players included in the global sugar-based excipients industry are Ashland Inc., Archer Daniels Midland Co., BASF SE, DFE Pharma, Roquette Group, Associated British Foods PLC, Cargill Inc., Colorcon Inc., FMC Corp., The Lubrizol Corp., Meggle AG
