Press Release :
Global Pharmaceutical Hot Melt Extrusion Market: Snapshot
The global market for pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion has gained a significant momentum, thanks to the versatile usage of the extrudate. The upswing in the popularity of hot melt extrusion, on account of the increasing awareness among consumers regarding the benefits it offers compared to the conventional processing techniques, such as reduced time to market and optimized product efficiency, is also supporting the growth of this market substantially.
On the other hand, the rising concerns over the quality and the non-compliance of regulatory requirements have been restraining the market’s progression. Apart from this, the inadequacy of the formulation due to the properties of API and incompetence in delivering on-time supplies may also restrict this market from growing steadily in the near future.
The opportunity in the global market for pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion is likely to increase from a value of US$26.6 mn in 2015 to US$36.4 mn by 2024, swelling at a CAGR of 3.90% during the period from 2016 to 2024. In terms of volume, the market is expected to expand at a CAGR of more than 4.7% over the same period of time.
Strong Presence of Established Players to Ensure North America’s Dominance
On the regional front, the worldwide market for pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion has been categorized into North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa. With a share of nearly 38%, North America led the global market in 2015. Thanks to the presence of a number of established players, this regional market is likely to continue to dominate over the next few years.
Europe has also been witnessing steady growth in its market for pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion and is expected to remain so due to the high demand for improved medical equipment and the increasing adoption of extruders. However, it is Asia Pacific, which will exhibit the most prominent growth rate over the forthcoming years.

Pharmaceutical Hot Melt Extrusion Market to Thrive on Rise in the Number of New Drugs with Low Bioavailability
The method of applying heat and pressure to melt a polymer and then pushing it into an orifice in a continual process is known as hot melt extrusion. In the food, plastic, and rubber sectors, it is a commonly used packaging technology. More than half of all plastic materials, including panels, cylinders, food, bags, fibres, foams, and films are made with hot melt extrusion (HME). Growing prominence of the technology in the pharmaceutical sector is likely to foster growth of the global pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion market in the years to come
Growing Awareness about the Benefits of the Process to Spell Growth for the Market
The use of the hot melt extrusion (HME) method in systems of drug-delivery systems, mostly transdermal patches and in the forms of solid dosage, has been prompted by the emergence of new medications with difficult solubility and bioavailability. Hot melt extrusion makes use of pressure, heat, and agitation to combine materials and force them into the desired shape via an extrusion tube. The rising demand for hot melt extrusion in pharmaceutical applications is being driven by an increase in the number of new drugs with low bioavailability and the introduction of such drugs to the market. This factor is foreseen to trigger expansion of the global pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion market in the years to come.
The growing understanding among vendors about the benefits of adopting pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion over conventional processing methods is estimated to be the key growth driver of the global pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion market. In the manufacture of hot melt extrusion, adjusting the functional parameters is relatively easy. As a result, the screw components can now be conveniently modified to accommodate different agitator styles. Hot melt extrusion has also aided in the suit optimization in a specific cases. The die plates may also be swapped depending on the extrude diameter. As a result of these features and advantages, the demand for pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion is increasing, resulting in market growth.
