Albumin Market Trends

  • Increased demand for certified Albumin (as Excipient) products to propel market growth

Human Albumin is frequently used as a plasma expander or replacement for therapeutic purposes. The use of human Albumin as a non-therapeutic substance or excipient for commercial settings has, however, been under investigation by the healthcare sector for more than ten years. Emerging markets for human Albumin as a component of vaccines, a surgical sealant, and a coating for medical equipment and devices are anticipated to drive production across all of these application areas. The demand for Albumin in laboratories is rising as people become more aware of its advantages. It functions as a pharmaceutical stabilizer to lessen the denaturation of the proteins' active components. Additionally, human serum albumin has a number of advantages that make it a good option for vaccine formulations. It is anticipated that advances in molecular separation and protein purification technology will significantly boost the market. Thus, this aspect is expected to accelerate Albumin (as an excipient) market revenue globally.

There are several benefits of using Albumin during drug formation. Pharmaceutical drug development faces a challenge in creating safe and stable formulations, and selecting excipients can play a significant role in the formulation's success. This is especially important for difficult-to-formulate active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and may determine whether a drug candidate is abandoned during development or succeeds as a pharmaceutical. When creating different APIs, Albumin has been shown to have advantages over other excipients and to be able to help with some formulation difficulties. Historically, Albumin has been incorporated into a variety of formulations. Human serum albumin that was chemically defined (recombinant) is now more commonly used than the original form derived from plasma. Recombinant products are advantageous because they don't contain animal-derived ingredients, have a reliable supply, are highly pure, don't contain host-derived proteases, are homogeneous, have a high free thiol content, don't contain known or unknowable human pathogens, are consistent from batch to batch, and have a well-established regulatory pathway.

Moreover, Albumin is helpful in the production and administration of stem cell and other cell therapies, as well as numerous regenerative pharmaceutical products. Cell therapies frequently need to be cryopreserved for shipping and storage. To safeguard these sensitive biologic treatments, uniform, reproducible media is necessary, and HSA is frequently a key component. 7 In order to improve consistency, quality, and reproducibility, it is frequently used right from the start of the manufacturing processes for cell therapies. Additionally, it has been demonstrated to enhance adeno-associated virus vector transduction (AAVs). Such increasing use of Albumin is anticipated to boost the market CAGR during the forecast period.
