The growing fear of COVID-19 infection transmission has mandated the development of new guidelines and recommendations by health authorities. The economic crises that have hit different parts of Latin America in recent years have threatened the progress of the pharmaceutical industry in some of the countries. In Argentina, the Federal Government has reduced formalities for Governmental purchase of medicines, medical devices and medical supplies. Companies involved in the manufacture, distribution and commercialization of the key supplies have to increase production to their maximum capacity and report to the Sanitary Regulatory Authority and the Ministry of Production, production plans as well as the amount of goods produced and sold and identify the buyers. Besides, the Brazilian Federal Health Agency (ANVISA) has issued several regulations providing exceptions to regulatory requirements for pharmaceutical products, medical supplies and medical devices related to COVID-19. Requirements for corporate permits for sanitizers and certain medical drugs and devices, as well as for the extraordinary acceptance of importation of products that are not registered in Brazil, have been relaxed under certain conditions.

The market for pharmaceutical excipients market is segmented into product, functionality, and type of formulation. Based on product, the pharmaceutical excipients market is segmented into organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals and other products. In 2019, the organic chemicals segment accounted for the largest share, moreover the same segment is expected to grow at a fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Organic chemicals are chemical compounds that contain carbon-hydrogen bonds and these can be found in natural or synthetic form. Most organic chemicals are carbon based, hence produced by plants or animals, whereas synthetic organic chemicals are produced through chemical reactions. Organically derived pharmaceuticals excipients include oleochemicals, carbohydrates, petrochemicals, proteins, povidones, acrylic polymers, mineral hydrocarbons, starch, cellulose, and others. The most commonly used oleo chemical-based pharmaceutical excipients are fatty alcohols, mineral stearates, glycerin, and lipids. The organic segment is expected to lead the market owing to the rise in the use of organic chemicals in various formulations in the pharmaceutical industry.
