High Awareness about Health to Drive Growth

The rising awareness about benefits hot melt extrusion over conventional processing techniques, is the key factor boosting significant growth of the global pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion market. The operating parameters in manufacture of hot melt extrusion easily be changed. The screw elements permit agitator designs to be easily changed and optimized to suit a particular application. Additionally, the die plates can be exchanged with the extrude diameter. Aforementioned characteristics are augmenting the demand for pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion which in turn is driving growth of the global pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion market.

However, the rising concerns about quality and the non-compliance of regulatory requirements is a major restraint to the growth of the pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion market. In addition to this, inadequacy of the formulation owing to characteristics of API and incompetence in delivering on-time supplies is hampering growth of the global pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion market.
