Albumin Market overview

According to the latest research report, the albumin market size is predicted to increase at a high rate over the projected timeframe. Over the projection period, it is expected that the market will reach a value of USD 736 million in the year 2017, and it will expand at a compound annual growth rate of a CAGR of 5.10% forecast 2020-2030. With regard to the preparation of medications, the selection of excipient is critical for success. Albumin used as an excipient in preparation has been shown to enhance lyophilized cake form, melting characteristics of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) from lyophilized granules, and mobility of the drug substance.

One of the essential reasons propelling the albumin market is biotechnology and pharmaceutical businesses' increasing usage of transgenic albumin-based drug carriers. A recent announcement by Novozymes Biopharma DK A/S said that their albumin-based VELTIS innovation is being utilized by GlaxoSmithKline plc inside the production of type II diabetic drugs in Europe. Multiple factors, including the growing incidence of chronic diseases, technological innovations, the emergence of new markets in APAC and the Rest of the World, increased consciousness about Albumin as an excipient, as well as the rising use of Albumin for non-therapeutic implementations, is indeed anticipated to contribute to the market's continued expansion.

Regional Analysis

According to the reports, on the basis of region, the global albumin market is divided into the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, the middle east, and Africa. The expanding R&D spending and expanding incidence of diabetes in the Americas fueled the worldwide market for Albumin. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics from 2015, around 30.3 million Americans have diabetes. Europe was predicted to be the second-largest market for Albumin in the year 2017. Technology developments and more market engagement are to blame for this. As an example, Novozymes founded Albumedix, a newly established firm in 2016, which specializes in recombinant Albumin.

It was predicted that the Asia-Pacific area would be the quickest growing in the year 2017. An increase in medical spending drives the Asia Pacific region's regional marketplaces. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, there was an overall health investment of USD 181 billion from 2015 to 2016. Although Albumin was most popular in Europe and North America, the Middle East and Africa accounted for the lowest percentage of the total albumin market share.

Competitive landscape

The albumin industry is dynamic, with a large number of prominent firms competing for customers' attention. When it comes to market share, just a handful of the large competitors are now controlling the industry. Also, with the growing need for improved healthcare services and the increased frequency of illnesses, it is projected that a few new smaller firms would join the marketplace.
