Demand for Oral Thin Films Are Slated To Accelerate At A Steady CAGR of 8.7% To Top US$ 7.19 Billion by 2032: Fact.MR

Rise of Oral Thin Films as 'Precision Medication' will Dictate its Commercial Success

Rockville , May 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, reveals that the global oral thin films market is worth US$ 3.12 billion in 2022 and is expected to surge ahead at an impressive CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast years of 2022-2032.

The oral route is the most popular for therapeutic administration because of its low cost and easy availability. Mainly, the solid form of oral drugs is available in tablets and capsules. This poses difficulties in swallowing for geriatric and paediatric patients. Oral thin films improve patients’ compliance by enhancing the drug administration for them. They also aid psychiatric and bedridden patients who otherwise refuse to swallow tablets and capsules. Addressing these challenges has catalysed the rapid adoption of oral thin films in the pharmaceutical sector.

The characteristics of oral thin films, such as dosage flexibility and ease of administration, attracts users. Oral thin films are also fast-acting and prompt drugs that enter the circulatory system through direct absorption, and even reduce the risk of choking. Furthermore, no special training is required for their administration.

As oral thin films are moisture-sensitive, they require special packaging. Focusing on product innovation and packaging techniques can help manufacturers reduce costs and product damage.
