Growth Factors

In the first half of 2020, the growth of the market was stagnant, but the market started to recover by the end of 2020. It was mainly due to the use of unit doses for the treatment of COVID-19 as it decreases the risk involved while handling and pouring doses from the same bottle.

Unit dose manufacturing has many advantages as the drug can be easily identified, and the formulation of the drug is protected until the moment of administration. If the container is intact and the drug has not been used, it can be redisposed and retrieved without changing its formulation. The most important benefit is that it can be administered in the proper dosage and ensures that the patient does not exceed the prescribed limit.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has a significant effect on the pharmaceutical market. The first half of the COVID-19 pandemic had slowed growth but by the end of 2020, the market started to recover. The unit dose manufacturing is lucratively used in the current scenario as it reduces the risk of handling and contamination.

By Sourcing Analysis

The outsourcing segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 56.0% in 2020. The market is estimated to become 3.55 times of itself by 2030. This segment is also expected to grow at the fastest rate over the forecasted period. 

Pharmaceutical companies that manufacture unit dosages are included in the in-house segment. The in-house segment is projected to exhibit gradual growth over the forecasted period due to increasing outsourcing activity. 

By Product Analysis

The solid unit dose segment dominated the market and accounted for over 46.0% share of the global revenue in 2020. This growth is due to the formulations having a better shelf life. Besides, they are cost-effective, efficient, and simple to use. The solid dose is well understood, and it is accepted globally.

The solid unit dose is expected to witness rapid expansion in the coming years. This is due to fixed-dose combinations, controlled-release dosage forms, and reformulations of existing drugs, which are some of the factors that are driving the contract manufacturing of solid dosage formulations.

By End-use Analysis

The independent pharmacies segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 31.0% in 2020. It is estimated to become 4.01 times of itself by 2020. The segment is also anticipated to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. 

The hospitals segment accounted for the second-largest revenue share in 2020. Unit dose packaging is extremely beneficial in hospitals. In hospitals and long-term care institutions, small improvements make it safer and more efficient for patients and health personnel. 

By Regional Analysis

The North American market held the largest revenue share of over 35.0% in 2020. A patient-centric drug development approach is adopted by most drug product manufacturers, big pharma companies, generics, and nutraceutical segments.

The growth of unit dose manufacturing in North America is due to high healthcare expenditure, well-established healthcare infrastructure, the presence of dominant market players, and the flourishing pharmaceutical industry in the region.
