Medications are often tablets, capsules or liquids that make people feel better. These medicines contain an agent called the active ingredient. The active ingredient is a molecule that acts on your body to then make you feel better. It can be molecules derived from natural products such as plants, in addition, these molecules can also be made in labs. Many people use drugs in many different types and volumes. For example, in the United States alone, 66% of adults use prescription drugs.

The usage of medicines
Often when people need a medication they get a medical certificate from the doctor, the pharmacy needs this official certificate to actually supply the medication. This is to prevent the misuse of medicines, for example if someone has an addiction to strong painkillers it would not be good if they were allowed to get this without a doctor’s certificate.
Many drugs work on the basis of cells that are in the body. For example, they can stop pain or lower blood pressure. Other drugs such as antibiotics work by killing bacteria or viruses to stop infections. Throughout history, drugs have been discovered by scientists trying to cure diseases; some have been discovered by accident.
For example, Penicillin was discovered in 1928 because a researcher (Alexander Fleming) saw a solution to combat influenza. During his research, he saw a clear bacteria-free zone in a moldy petri dish. From this it later became known that it contained the antibiotic penicillin. A drug that is still used today.
Medicine market development
The global pharmaceutical manufacturing market was valued at USD 405.52 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.34% from 2021 to 2028. The pharmaceutical landscape has undergone a tremendous transformation with the emergence of new technologies, cost-effective and more efficient manufacturing approaches, among others. Moreover, increasing investment flow in this space has positively impacted market growth. Production floor downtime and product waste generation are being reduced with the implementation of robotic technology and artificial intelligence (AI).
Constant advances in personalized medicine have opened up numerous opportunities to address various health problems and enabled the development of patient-centric models. These advances are resulting in a shift from large batches to smaller batches for the development of complex drugs and autologous patient-targeted treatments. This has also prompted manufacturers to redesign their supply chains to better align with the patient-centered healthcare system.
