Pharmaceutical Excipients - Category Spend Analysis

According to analysts at SpendEdge, the growth of the pharmaceutical industry along with the increase in aging population base and high occurrences of chronic diseases is poised to drive the growth of the global pharmaceutical excipients market. Moreover, the rising volume growth of generics and biosimilars products due to patent expiries and development of new drugs in the pharmaceutical industry is leading to a high demand for optimized and customized excipients.

Pharmaceutical Excipients - Procurement Best Practices

One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to assess suppliers' control over the quality of concomitant components in excipients. Concomitant components are other entities present in excipients other than the principal components. These components are essential for ensuring correct functioning of excipients in the final medicine product. As a result, buyers should assess suppliers for control over physical characteristics, quantity, and quality of these concomitant components to ensure consistency of excipient characteristics used in the formulation process of medicines.

Pharmaceutical Excipients - Procurement Challenges

According to this procurement research report, one of the key procurement challenges faced by buyers is the high switching costs. The switching costs for buyers is high as they must ensure compliance with all the respective regulatory mandates valid for the particular type of excipient they are procuring. Moreover, change of suppliers further complicates the supply chain of excipients leading to risks of shortage and supply chain breakdowns.

To overcome the challenges, buyers must analyze the sustainability of suppliers during the selection process to ensure continuity of supply.
