Global Ibuprofen API Market is valued approximately at USD XX billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a growth rate of more than 4.8% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Ibuprofen API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) is the pure, raw form of ibuprofen that is used to manufacture over-the-counter and prescription pain relievers and fever reducers. As a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), ibuprofen helps in alleviating pain, reduce inflammation, and lower fever. Ibuprofen API undergoes stringent testing and quality control measures to ensure its safety, efficacy, and purity aligning with regulatory standards prior to its incorporation into pharmaceutical products. Ibuprofen API is an essential component of many formulations, including tablets, capsules, solutions and topical treatments, following it is produced. Ibuprofen API is used by pharmaceutical firms to make a variety of prescription and over-the-counter drugs that are designed to address various individual requirements experiencing pain, inflammation, and fever. The rapid evolution of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) in emerging economies, surge in pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical production and the rapid expansion of geriatric demographic.

Additionally, the market is expected to be further propelled by the growing prevalence of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, migraine, and musculoskeletal disorders. According to the World Health Organization article as of July 2022, musculoskeletal conditions affect nearly 1.71 billion individuals globally, making them a prominent contributor to disability on a worldwide scale. Among these conditions, low back pain recorded as the primary cause of disability in as many as 160 countries. Also, as per Statistics Canada’s August 2022 report, arthritis affected 657,900 individuals aged 35 to 49, 2,042,100 individuals aged 50 to 64, and 3,138,500 individuals aged 65 and above in 2021. Thus, the rising incidences of musculoskeletal disorders among various age demographics worldwide is spurring the demand for pharmaceutical advancements and propelling the demand for ibuprofen as a preferred solution for pain relief. Moreover, the growing investment in the R&D activities, as well as the rise in demand for pain relief medications presents various lucrative opportunities over the forecast period. However, the adverse effects and safety concerns, along with the increasing regulatory scrutiny and compliance costs are hindering the market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.

The key regions considered for the Global Ibuprofen API Market study include Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the market in 2022 with largest market share owing to the rapid expansion of pharmaceutical industry, imposition of stringent regulatory approvals and quality standards, coupled with the increasing technological advancements in drug delivery. Whereas, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast years. The rising incidences of chronic diseases, growing healthcare expenditure, and population growth are significantly propelling the market demand across the region. Also, the region’s market growth is significantly bolstered by strategic endeavors undertaken by key industry players, including the introduction of new products, collaborative ventures, and acquisitions. For instance, in September 2022, IOL Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals revealed plans to diversify its active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and specialty chemicals portfolios, investing USD 36.1 million (INR 300 crore) to establish a plant in western India. With around 30% of its revenues derived from the commodity API ibuprofen, the new plant aims to double the company’s sales within the next 5 years. Thus, these factors are anticipated to fuels the region’s market share during the forecast period.
