The key demand indicator is the highest category spender in the industry report by region—North America and Europe.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

Tablet coating or film coating is a thin polymer-based layer applied on a solid medicinal dosage form, such as a tablet. The coatings are applied to dosage forms for various reasons, including aesthetic concerns like colour, gloss, and branding, enhancing shelf life by creating a protective barrier between the medicine and the environment, and making the dosage form simpler to swallow. The Tablet Coatings industry report comprises segments by end-use (Pharmaceuticals, Nutraceutical (Herbals, VMS)) and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, and South America).

North America and Europe Regions are Driving the Growth of the Industry

The North American and European region holds the largest share in the market due to North America driving the pharmaceuticals application sector's growth, accounting for more than half of all solid oral dosage form consumption. In these regions, the market maturity is very high. Furthermore, there is a significant demand for organic coating worldwide as it fits the desire for natural-ingredient dietary supplements propelling the industry growth.

The market is being driven by the developing pharmaceutical sector and increased R&D activity in the industry. The growing popularity of generics and the increasing use of orphan pharmaceuticals in the medical sector drive the market forward. Furthermore, the burgeoning biologics and biosimilars sector, paired with the shifting focus of pharmaceutical manufacturing to emerging markets and the increasing outsourcing of operations to these nations, provides considerable market expansion prospects. The coatings are made of cellulosic polymers, which have various properties like reduced susceptibility to wet granulation, excellent aqueous solubility, strong film strength, and improved tabletting at a cheaper cost. Furthermore, these coatings provide excellent moisture and light protection. Nonfunctional and non-modifying tablet coatings are easy to spot, have good flavour masking and mechanical strength, and are lightweight. As a result, the market is witnessing further growth. Other factors boosting the industry's expansion are the increasing generics market, the quickly developing biopharmaceuticals sector, and the growing nutraceutical industry.

However, the stringent regulatory policies by the government are likely to hamper the market growth.

Category Management Studies

Coatings for pharmaceutical solid dosage forms can be applied using four methods. First, there is the sugar-coating technique, which is possibly one of the oldest pharmaceutical methods currently in use. Aqueous sugar solutions are deposited on the surface of the core tablet throughout the procedure. The deposit of a thin coating of film-forming polymeric material on the tablet core is known as a film coating. Compression coating, also known as press coating or dry coating, is the technique of compressing a thin dry granulation onto a medicine tablet core. This is done with the use of a tablet press. Because compression coating is primarily a dry technique, it may be appropriate for coating tablets containing heat and moisture-sensitive drugs like aspirin and penicillins. This coating method has also been used to segregate two incompatible active medicinal components in the tablet core and the coating. This coating process produces both repeat and sustained action tablets. The procedure entails the application of a very thin coating on a micron-sized particle of solids, liquids, or even gases. The main difference between microencapsulation and film coating is the size of the particles to be coated and the methods used to do it.

Consumer Shift Towards Supplements, Further Boosting the Procurement of Tablet Coatings

The industry is being propelled by the rising popularity of sports nutrition supplement markets, and the wide range of supplements in the market is propelling the industry's expansion. Furthermore, manufacturers are exhibiting increased interest in formulated and customised mixes, which is expected to drive the market growth in these categories by increasing the total addressable market for tablets and, as a result, strengthening the tablet coatings market. Furthermore, the growing focus on technical advances and sports nutrition in significant market areas presents prospective growth prospects for the tablet coatings market's leading competitors. In addition, the availability and development of novel tablet coating materials and enhanced machine designs all help to bring superior goods to the market. The growth in demand for the goods might be ascribed to private-sector and government expansions, which have allowed foreign direct investment (FDI) to enter regions with low penetration.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.
