Global Microbial Fermentation APIs Market Insights, Forecast to 2025

Active pharmaceutical ingredients or APIs can be defined as the chemicals used to manufacture pharmaceutical drugs. They are generally manufactured through a variety of processes that include chemical synthesis, fermentation processes, recombinant DNA, etc.

Microbial fermentation APIs are secondary metabolites produced by micro-organisms such as fungi and actinomycetes. The micro-organisms are capable of converting inexpensive carbon sources (starch, glucose, sucrose, etc.) and nitrogen sources (soybean flour, cotton-seed flour, peptone, etc.) into highly valuable API's or key intermediates (such as amino acids, vitamines, antibiotics) in liquid or solid media under certain growth conditions (nutrients, temperature, PH, oxygen supply).

Microorganisms that are typically used within the pharmaceutical industry include: prokaryotes such as Bacteria (e.g. Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus) and Streptomycetes (e.g. Streptomyces spp, Actinomyces spp), eukaryotes such as Filamentous Fungi (e.g., Nigrospora spp, Aspergillus spp,) and Yeast (e.g. Saccharomyces cereviciae, Pichia pastoris).

With developed pharmaceuticals industry, Europe, USA and Japan are the major consumption markets of microbial fermentation APIs. These international pharmaceuticals giants generally purchase APIs from Asia, especially China and India.
China is the emerging consumption market of microbial fermentation APIs and it is also the largest supplier. In the market of antibiotics and vitamin, China have occupied market share of more than half. With foreign based plants and local manufacturers, India is another major supplier of APIs.
Antibiotics enjoyed the largest market share of microbial fermentation APIs, and China is the largest supplier with production of about 150 K MT. Amino acids are another important parts of microbial fermentation APIs market. Among these amino acids, the amount of glutamic acid and l-lysine are at most.
The global Microbial Fermentation APIs market is valued at 27700 million US$ in 2018 and will reach 31000 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 1.4% during 2019-2025.
