Ibuprofen API will witness a downfall in demand, owing to halted productions by major manufacturers, as suggested by a new Future Market Insights (FMI) report. Continuous demand for low-cost non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and scale of manufacturing facilities remain the key drivers for global Ibuprofen market that has been projected to witness around 1.3X expansion in revenues during 2020-2029.
Emergence of cost-effective drug manufacturers in Asia, coupled with increasing API drug shortages, are further driving ibuprofen API market growth.

The growth is primarily attributed to the availability of cheap labor adequate raw materials. Moreover, with conducive regulatory environments being set up across manufacturing facilities, coupled with reduced taxation policies are fueling growth. China and India being leading regions, contribute to 80% of total anti-inflammatory APIs manufactured. This facet is further spurring market players to leverage the demand in the region. However, the pandemic is likely to hinder the swift growth of the market.
