The Global Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) Market: A Frost & Sullivan Briefing on Changing Dynamics

LONDON, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Healthcare Group at Frost & Sullivan is pleased to announce its 2009 Quarterly Analyst Briefing Presentation on the Global Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) Market to be held on Wednesday, 6th May 2009, at 3 p.m. GMT.


The API market, traditionally dominated by small molecule drugs, is currently witnessing a rapid shift towards biopharmaceuticals. At the same time the manufacturing volume outsourced to contract manufacturing firms is on the rise. As plain vanilla generics continue to get highly competitive, API manufacturers are searching for newer avenues such as the production of high potency API's to differentiate themselves from competition.

Highlights of this briefing include an analysis of the global API market, challenges facing the global API industry, as well as market drivers and restraints, an estimate on the market size, and a look out on emerging trends. The importance of the Asia-Pacific region as an API manufacturing hub will also be covered in this presentation.

This briefing will benefit API manufacturers, contract manufacturing companies, biotechnology as well as pharmaceutical companies, and the financial community wishing to understand the future potential of the API market.

"It is a difficult time for API manufacturers as they continue to battle challenges such as growing competition from low-cost countries and overcapacity. Market participants will increasingly have to rely on strategies such as capability differentiation and consolidation to stay ahead of competition," observes Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology Programme Leader Sumanth Kambhammettu from Frost & Sullivan.

Frost & Sullivan will hold this conference call at 3 p.m. GMT on Wednesday, 6th May 2009, which will provide industry participants an outlook of the Global Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) Market. To participate, please email Katja Feick at with the following information: your full name, company name, title, telephone number, e-mail address, city, state, and country. Upon receipt of the above information, a registration link will be emailed to you.
