Market Analysis - Natural Products 2017

Natural products play an important role in drug discovery. About more than 50 percent of FDA-approved drugs were Natural products or Medicinal Plants derivatives.For thousands of year’s natural products have played a very important role in health care and prevention of diseases.  It is estimated that about 70% of the supply of herbal raw material for Ayurveda and other homeopathic medicines in India comes from the wild. To meet the increasing demand for raw material, to conserve wild resources, and to reduce the potential variability in the active ingredient content in medicinal plants from different collection areas, it is important to implement more controlled cultivation programs to ensure quality and to protect resources. The global market for botanical and plant-derived drugs was valued at $23.2 billion in 2013 and $24.4 billion in 2014. This total market is expected to reach $25.6 billion in 2015 and nearly $35.4 billion in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6% from 2015 to 2020.

Natural products sometimes have pharmacological or biological activity that can be of therapeutic benefit in treating diseases. As such, natural products are the active components not only of most traditional medicines but also many modern medicines. Furthermore, because the structural diversity of natural products exceeds that readily achievable by chemical synthesis, and synthetic analogs can be prepared with improved potency and safety, natural products are often used as starting points for drug discovery. In fact, natural products are the inspiration for approximately one half of U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved drugs.

A variety of retail stores sell natural products in the United States with over 3,000 natural food vendors. One of the most popular is the Whole Foods Market chain which began in 1980 with one store and now has over 300 stores in North America and the United Kingdom. It is important to realize that Whole Foods Markets does the majority of its buying through a large natural products distributor called UNFI. UNFI is the leading independent US distributor of natural, organic and speciality foods and related products (which includes dietary supplements and natural cosmetics). Other natural products, such as cosmetics and organic clothing, can be found in a variety of stores and superstores. These generally buy via distributors with only a minority going directly to producers. Fair trade stores throughout North America focus their buying on members of the Fair Trade Federation or the World Fair Trade Organization. It is also important to realize that some of the leading cosmetic and dietary supplement consumer products in the United States market are actually manufactured in Europe. These European natural products are relabelled for the United States market and distributed either by the foreign company’s United States sales and marketing division, through a subsidiary or by a company that has obtained exclusive sales and marketing rights in the United States.

Funding for Natural Products Research

The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded nearly $35 million (£22.7 million) to fund research into botanical dietary supplements and other natural products, which include various substances produced by plants, bacteria, fungi, and animals historically used in traditional medicine and other complementary and integrative health practices. The agency announced that it will fund five research centres to examine the safety of such natural products, study how they work within the body, and develop cutting-edge research technologies to probe such substances.

Specifically, the NIH expects to provide competitive grant awards worth $2 million annually for five years to the three botanical dietary supplements research centres, and the agency anticipates awarding two natural products innovation centres a combined budget of $1.25 million per year for five years. They are expected to develop new research approaches and technologies that will have significant impact on the chemical and biological investigation of natural products. They will also provide leadership in coordinating scientific discourse and disseminating innovative methodology and good research practices to the research community on natural products. Many of the supplements that the centres plan to study with the NIH funding including black cohosh, fenugreek, licorice, and valerian are among the top 100 supplements consumed in the US, according to the NIH.

A complete knowledge of a scientific discipline that described the Marine drug discovery and development and Marine Drugs and Natural Products now explores the use of Natural products in industry as well as healthcare. 

Marine Drugs and Natural Products 2017 is the chemistry of marine organisms is relatively unexplored and represents a vast resource for new medicines to combat major diseases such as cancer, AIDS or malaria. Research typically focuses on sessile organisms or slow moving animals because of their inherent need for chemical defenses. Standard research involves an extraction of the organism in a suitable solvent followed by either an assay of this crude extract for a particular disease target or a rationally guided isolation of new chemical compounds using standard chromatography techniques.  

Moreover, it is likely that for every compound that does make it to the market, a better drug with distinct chemistry, improved bioavailability and less unwanted side effects can be found either in chemical libraries or among the much larger number and diversity of natural products.

In recent years, marine natural product bioprospecting has yielded a considerable number of drug candidates. Most of these molecules are still in preclinical or early clinical development but some are already on the market, such as cytarabine, or are predicted to be approved soon, such as ET743 (YondelisTM). Research into the ecology of marine natural products has shown that many of these compounds function as chemical weapons and have evolved into highly potent inhibitors of physiological processes in the prey, predators or competitors of the marine organisms that use them. Some of the natural products isolated from marine invertebrates have been shown to be, or are suspected to be, of microbial origin and this is now thought to be the case for the majority of such molecules. Marine microorganisms, whose immense genetic and biochemical diversity is only beginning to be appreciated, look likely to become a rich source of novel chemical entities for the discovery of more effective drugs.
