According to the report, the global tablet hardness testers market was valued at US$ 241.4 Mn in 2020 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.41% from 2021 to 2031. Tablet hardness testing is a quality control test performed to determine the ability of a tablet to withstand pressure during transport or shipping. Tablet hardness is the crushing strength of the tablet i.e., the force required to breakdown the tablet. It is measured in units such as kg/cm2, Newton, pound (lb.), kilopound (kp), and Strong-Cobb (SC).
Portable tablet hardness testers are highly popular, owing to recharge ability, compactness, and ease of operation. The demand for automatic tablet hardness testers is expected to increase over the next few years, owing to reduced efforts and increased accuracy of results. These models are able to store and print the results, which assures authenticity and reliability of the tablet manufacturing process. Some of these technologically advanced instruments also offer measurement of tablet thickness, size, shape, diameter, and width, along with hardness.
Increase in Demand for Automatic Tablet Hardness Testers
The demand for automatic tablet hardness testers is rising due to reduced human resources and increase in accuracy of outcomes. Automatic tablet hardness testers can store and print the results, which assures the reliability of the tablet manufacturing process. Some of these technologically progressive tablet hardness testers offer measurement of tablet size, thickness, shape, width, and hardness, along with diameter, which fuels the growth of the global tablet hardness testers market.
The demand for automatic tablet hardness testers is increasing rapidly due to the need of determination of tablet disintegration. A tablet with hardness more than required limits does not disintegrate, which is an essential step for the release of accurate dosage.
Automatic hardness testers provide automatic tablet pressing, automatic display, automatic lock, automatic reset, automatic cycle test, automatic linear error correction, and automatic fault diagnosis.
Automatic to Lead Tablet Hardness Testers Market
In terms of product type, the global tablet hardness testers market has been classified into manual, semi-automatic, and automatic. The automatic segment was valued at US$ 106 Mn in 2020 and is projected to reach US$ 180.5 Mn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 5% from 2021 to 2031. Automatic tablet hardness tester is designed for demanding environments of pharmaceutical manufacturing and dusty compression rooms.
Key features of automatic tablet hardness tester are real-time display of the whole measurement characteristic curve and coordinate display of the complete test process, providing an intuitive basis for the analysis and evaluation of the hardness of the test product. Moreover, real-time display systems help to maintain current date and time, pressure, number of slices, speed, average, maximum, minimum, variance, and standard deviation.
Hardness, Thickness, Diameter/Length, Width, Weight Functions to be Preferred
In terms of function, the global tablet hardness testers market has been divided into hardness and thickness; hardness, diameter, thickness; hardness, diameter, weight, thickness; hardness, thickness, diameter/length, width, weight; thickness, length/diameter, hardness, width, and others. The hardness, thickness, diameter/length, width, weight segment was valued at US$ 60.2 Mn in 2020 and is projected to reach US$ 107.9 Mn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2021 to 2031.
The model EHT-5PR & EHT-5PR having hardness, thickness, diameter/length, width, weight functions offers the most accurate control, as the rate of increase is directly controlled by the electronically load cell used to read the force.
North America to Dominate Tablet Hardness Testers Market
In terms of region, the global tablet hardness testers market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The tablet hardness testers market in North America was valued at US$ 102.2 Mn in 2020 and is projected to reach US$ 159.4 Mn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2021 to 2031.
Investments in research & development on tablet hardness testers have increased in the past few years. These investments have increased the number of research centers and contract manufacturing & contract research organizations. High demand for tablet dosage due to low cost, ease of manufacture & packaging, increase in incidence of infectious & chronic diseases, and surge in healthcare spending boost the growth of the tablet hardness testers market in North America.
The global tablet hardness testers market is fragmented due to the presence of a large number of leading players. Key players operating in the global market include Veego Instruments Corporation, SOTAX, Hally Instruments, Copley Scientific, ERWEKA GmbH, Pharmatec, Torontech Inc., Compression Components & Service, LLC, Electronics India, Labindia-analytical, Shandong Shengtai Instrument Co. Ltd., and Panomex Inc.
