Steady advancement in methods of albumin purification, especially human serum albumin, is likely to fuel albumin (as excipient) market development. Surge in usage of recombinant human serum albumin fusion proteins in drug delivery applications is expected to augment market growth in the next few years. Introduction of novel albumin fusion protein drugs for use in disease therapeutics applications in recent years is expected to augment market development. Rise in therapeutic uses of albumin-binding prodrugs is strengthening market growth.

Key Findings of Study

  • Rise in Usage of Human Serum Albumin in Advanced Drug Delivery Systems: Rapid development of targeted delivery systems is bolstering usage of Human Serum Albumin (HSA). Albumin nanocarriers are gaining traction in the incorporation of therapeutic drugs in albumin-based carriers. Drug manufacturers are aware of the unique benefits of albumin nanoparticles such as high drug loading and entrapment capacity, good biodegradability and biocompatibility, and structural flexibility. Significant usage of HSA in advanced drug delivery systems can be ascribed to the fact that albumin microspheres are effective in the controlled and targeted release of the therapeutic molecule at the site to the patient. Rise in demand for carriers for anticancer drugs is expected to offer significant business opportunities in the near future.
  • Increase in Demand for Recombinant Albumin: Recent market trends suggest researchers are shifting their focus from human albumin to recombinant albumin. Rise in research pertaining to the safety and toxicity of human serum albumin has highlighted the superiority of non-human-derived excipients due to attractive characteristics. In some drug delivery systems, human serum albumin shows risks of transmission of infectious agents. An example is its usage as a pharmaceutical excipient in Botulinum toxin serotype a products.
