Market Overview:

The global acetylcysteine market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to factors such as rising prevalence of respiratory diseases, increasing demand for acetylcysteine in Asia Pacific and Latin America, and growing awareness about the benefits of acetylcysteine. However, stringent regulatory requirements for product approvals are likely to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period. Based on type, the global acetylcysteine market is segmented into purity?98% and purity?99%. The purity?98% segment is expected to account for a larger share of the global market than the purity?99% segment duringthe forecast period. This can be attributedto its lower price point and higher availability as compared with other types of acetylcysteine products.

Global Acetylcysteine Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Acetylcysteine is a medication used to treat acetaminophen overdose and other conditions. It is available as a generic medication. When used for acetaminophen overdose, it is given by injection into a vein.


Purity 98% is a premium quality pharmaceutical grade liquid acetylcysteine. It is a key ingredient in many cough syrups and other medications such as nasal sprays, eye drops, etc. Purity98% has no major side effects unlike other brands which contain additives like dextrose or maltose.


Purity 99% is a clear, colorless and non-toxic liquid that contains no additives or preservatives. It is manufactured using only one ingredient, namely purified water. Purity 99% has been used in the treatment of acetylcysteine induced hepatotoxicity and other related diseases for many years now with great success.

Application Insights:

On the basis of application, the global acetylcysteine market has been segmented into acetylcysteine capsule, acetylcysteine tablet and others. In 2017, the capsule held the largest share in terms of both revenue and volume. Acetylcysteine capsules are available in various forms such as extended release (ER) capsules & quick release (QR) capsules to ensure better absorption of drug in large doses. Capsules also help reduce adverse effects associated with Cystinosis by providing a stable source of cystin for body utilization over a longer period of time.

The use of tablets is becoming popular due to their ease-of-use.

Regional Analysis:

North America was the largest market for acetylcysteine globally and it will continue to be so over the forecast period. The region has a well-established healthcare infrastructure, which makes it easier for new products to penetrate into the market. Moreover, increasing cases of lupus in this region is expected to boost product demand owing to its immunomodulatory properties.

Asia Pacific is estimated to be one of the fastest growing markets with a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing high unmet clinical needs coupled with rapidly improving healthcare infrastructure in emerging countries such as China and India.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing incidence of respiratory diseases and disorders is expected to drive the demand for acetylcysteine in the near future.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of acetylcysteine is projected to fuel its growth in the next few years.
  • Growing number of research studies on acetylcysteine is likely to create new opportunities for this market in the coming years.
  • increasing use of acetylcysteine as a mucolytic agent is anticipated to propel its demand over the forecast period .
