Small active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) molecule is an organic component with low molecular weight. It is an active ingredient used in pharmaceuticals and biological procedures. In addition, API can be used as a combination in finished pharmaceutical products. Being a vital element, its requirement is high in the pharmaceutical industry. The molecule is effective in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of various diseases. Small molecules may be used as research tools to probe biological function as well as lead in the development of new therapeutic agents. Some can obstruct a specific function of a protein or interrupt protein-protein interactions.

The molecular value of the small API is approximately 900 Daltons and size on the order of 1 nm. Due to its low molecular weight, the body absorbs this active solution quickly.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

Pharmaceutical and biotech companies together with governments around the globe are working to address the COVID-19 outbreak, from supporting the development of vaccines to planning for medicine supply chain challenges. Currently, around 115 vaccine candidates and 155 molecules are in the R&D pipeline. Moreover, commonly used drugs such as hydroxychloroquine have witnessed a dramatic surge in demand for the management of COVID-19. Such high demand for these drugs has presented huge opportunities for manufacturers of COVID-19 management drugs, as many developed countries are facing shortage of these drugs. Thus, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry is expected to witness a significant growth in the future, owing to the demand for vaccine and treatment drugs for COVID-19. This, in turn, is expected to have a significant impact on the small molecule API market.
