Unit Dose Manufacturing Market Is Estimated To Expand Further At A CAGR Of 18.2% By 2028

Unit Dose Manufacturing Industry Overview

The global unit dose manufacturing market size is expected to reach USD 61.5 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 18.2% from 2021 to 2028. 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 Market Segmentation

Grand View Research has segmented the global unit dose manufacturing market based on sourcing, product, end-use, and region:

Based on the Sourcing Insights, the market is segmented into In-house, Outsourcing.

  • The outsourcing segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 55.0% in 2020. The market is estimated to become 3.55 times of itself by 2028. 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. 
  • The main reasons are that medium-sized pharmaceutical businesses lack the money and infrastructure to support their business. Also, for new businesses, it is difficult to acquire experienced and competent full-time staff. Hence, in these cases, outsourcing is preferred.

Based on the Product Insights, the market is segmented into Liquid Unit Dose, Solid Unit Dose, Others.

  • The solid unit dose segment dominated the market and accounted for over 45.0% 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.

Based on the End-use Insights, the market is segmented into Independent Pharmacies, Long Term Care Facility, Hospitals, Others.

  • The independent pharmacies segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 30.0% in 2020. It is estimated to become 4.01 times of itself by 2028. 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.
