DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wkvbb4/pharmaceutical) has announced the addition of the "Pharmaceutical Spray Drying Market, 2014 - 2024" report to their offering.
The concept of spray drying' started in late 19th century in the food and chemical industry. Within pharmaceutical industry, spray drying found its use initially for the production of APIs.
The technology has not been used as widely for commercial drug formulations yet. We have come across only limited examples of marketed drugs for which spray drying is used for developing the commercial batches.
The future growth in the market will primarily be driven by aseptic spray drying, which allows production of biologics and vaccines. The process, being suitable for heat-sensitive products, is likely to find acceptance for drying of biologics.
This will help eliminate the requirement for cold chains and refrigeration, saving not just the cost of maintaining such processes, but also prevent the costs associated with drug batches which lose integrity due to cold chain challenges.
Both freeze drying and spray drying methods are based on the concept of solvent evaporation. However, unlike freeze drying that only allows solvent evaporation, a major advantage of spray drying is that it helps manipulate the particle size of powdered drugs. It is an efficient, economical and a relatively more stable method of drying.
The single step process of drying also helps improve the compression properties of drugs, allowing drug developers to reduce the number of pills or tablet size. This can help improve patient compliance or be used for life cycle management for drugs nearing patent expiry.
