Docusate sodium is a versatile and highly effective and efficient pharmaceutical grade surfactant. Docusate sodium is often used as an exicipient in pharmaceutical production processes where it acts as a solubilizing agent for poorly soluble API's as well as a dispersing and emulsifying agent. It is also used as active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) in the production of stool softeners and prenatal and geriatric iron preparations.
he global production increases to 55344 Kg in 2016 from 52694 Kg in 2012 with the average rate of 0.99%. USA, China, Europe and India are main manufacturing countries in the world. USA is the biggest manufacturing country and in 2016 52477 Kg docusate sodium is produced in USA.
According to the purity, it can be divided into DSS 100%, DSS 85% and DSS 50%. The type DSS 85% is the main type and takes 85%~86% of the total production in the world from 2012 to 2016. Docusate Sodium is used as excipient and active pharmaceutical ingredients. As an excipient, Docusate is an excellent solubilizing, wetting, dispersing and emulsifying agent that also aids in tablet formation. It also finds many other uses such as an emulsifier in creams and gels, an emulsifier and softener for ear wax removal compounds. In 2016, about 93% of the global production is applied as excipient.
The main manufacturers are limited very much in the world, CYTEC, Laxachem and Hunan Warrant Pharmaceutical take about 99% of the global production. CYTEC is the leading company in the world and produced 53 MT in 2016, taking 95.92% share of the gloal production. Hunan Warrant Pharmaceutical is the only one company which manufactures docusate sodium in China and the docusate sodium it produced by itself almost is consumed by itself.
