Dublin, June 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Pharmaceutical Spray Drying Market (2nd Edition), 2018-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The Pharmaceutical Spray Drying Market (2nd Edition), 2018-2028' report provides an extensive study on the use of spray drying in the pharmaceutical sector.

The key focus of the report is primarily to estimate the future potential of spray drying in the manufacturing of APIs, inhalables, injectables, biologics and other pharmaceutical products. The study presents an in-depth analysis of a diverse set of companies that provide spray drying equipment and services across different regions of the globe.

It offers several advantages over alternate drying technologies, such as lyophilization (characterized by high dependence on cold chain for storage and logistics, which is prone to failure due to human error) and vacuum foam drying (characterized by volumetric restrictions due to the properties of foam, which limits the quantity of sample that can be dried in a single run) that are currently deployed in the pharmaceutical industry.

Amongst other merits, spray drying is known to be suitable for drying heat-sensitive products such as biologics. Moreover, this method imparts improved properties to the formulations that can be administered through more efficient and less invasive modes of delivery, such as oral, and inhalation routes. The technology also aids in improving the compression properties of drugs, allowing developers to design concentrated dose variants of medications and reduce tablet size.

Such alterations have the potential to improve patient compliance. Given the flexibility offered in terms of drug development and formulation, the economics of the technique, the introduction of aseptic methods, and the recent approval of the first spray dried biologic, Raplixa, the adoption of spray drying is anticipated to increase steadily in the pharmaceutical industry.

One of the key objectives of the report was to understand the primary growth drivers and estimate the future size of the market. Based on parameters, such as trends in the pharmaceutical contract manufacturing industry, operation costs associated with spray drying and the challenges and opportunities presented by this technique, we have provided an informed estimate of the likely evolution of the market in the long term, for the period 2018-2028.

In addition, we have provided insights on the likely regional evolution of the market in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and the rest of the world. It also includes estimates regarding the likely distribution of the market based on type of industry (pharmaceuticals and biologics) and type of nozzles used in spray dryers (fluid nozzle, pressure nozzle, rotary disc atomizer, centrifugal nozzle, and others). In order to account for the uncertainties associated with some of the key parameters and to add robustness to our model, we have presented three different forecast scenarios, depicting conservative, base and optimistic tracks of the market's evolution.

Amongst other elements, the report includes:

  • A detailed discussion the applications of spray drying in the pharmaceutical industry; these include enhancement of solubility and bioavailability, formulation of inhalables, taste masking, development of controlled release formulations, and aseptic production of biopharmaceuticals.
  • An assessment of the various players that are engaged in the manufacturing of spray dryers used in the pharmaceutical industry, including a detailed analysis of their products based on inlet temperature, type of nozzle (fluid, pressure, rotary disc, centrifugal and others), size of the dryer (lab, clinical and commercial) and atomizing gas (air, nitrogen and inert gases).
  • An overview of the current market landscape of spray drying service providers, featuring an analysis based on the location of their operating facilities, type of spray dryers used, scale of operation (lab, clinical and commercial), information on cGMP status of their facilities and availability of fill/finish services.
  • An insightful 2X2 analysis of different spray drying service providers. This analysis is based on the spray drying capabilities (represented in terms of number of manufacturing sites, scale of operation and the types of spray dryers used) and the company size. In addition, similar analysis has been done to compare the spray dryer manufacturers. This assessment is based on the company's spray drying portfolio (number of spray dryers offered and availability of spray drying services), company's year of establishment and the geographical coverage of its client base.
  • Tabulated profiles of the players offering spray drying services, featuring company overview, service portfolio, spray dryers used, and key developments related to its spray drying capabilities.
  • Detailed profiles of spray dryer manufacturers, featuring an overview of the company, its financial information (if available), types of spray dryers in their respective product portfolios, recent developments and a comprehensive future outlook.
  • A case study on the lyophilization of biologics, highlighting the underlying process, its applications, and merits and demerits. It features a detailed list of companies offering lyophilization services with information on location of facilities, types of drug candidates lyophilized, scale of operation and the containment systems utilized for such operations.
  • A detailed analysis of the mergers and acquisitions that have taken place in this space, highlighting the trend in the number of companies acquired in the last few years, along with the geographical distribution of this activity. The analysis highlights the ownership change matrix and presents financial evaluation of these deals (revenues and respective deal multiples).
  • A detailed discussion on affiliated trends, key drivers and challenges, under a SWOT framework.
