Solvent Evaporation Market: Increasing R&D Expenditure in Pharmaceuticals Industry

The solvent evaporation market was valued at US$ 470.77 million in 2020 and it is projected to reach US$ 821.41 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7%  during 2021–2028.

Solvent evaporation involves emulsification of polymer in aqueous phase and dispersion in a volatile solvent like dichloromethane, chloroform, and ethyl acetate. Then the solvent is evaporated using high temperature, vacuum, or by continuous stirring. Size of the particles can be controlled by adjusting parameters like manipulating evaporation temperature, controlling the rate of evaporation, manipulating stirring rate, etc. This method is being practiced for the nanoparticles developed using respective polymers such as, PLA, PLGA, PCL, polyhydroxybutyrate, etc. loaded with various drugs like tetanus toxoid, testosterone, loperamide, cyclosporin A, and indomethacin. Solvent evaporators are widely used in processes such as microencapsulation and are required to prepare polymeric nanoparticles for various pharmaceutical formulations. Technological advancements in solvent evaporation systems, such as centrifugal concentration, freeze-drying, and high-power cold traps, have led to enhanced evaporation and improved solvent recovery, with lesser environmental impact.

Increasing R&D Expenditure in Pharmaceuticals Industry

Solvent evaporation active substances are an essential step in the drug discovery process, as it is used in stages such as synthesis, sample preparation, and solvent recycling, as well as in the production scale-up of novel therapeutics. Many pharmaceutical companies invest huge amounts in research and development (R&D) process that mainly revolves around discovering and developing innovative molecules. According to a report published in Statista, the global spending on pharmaceutical R&D totaled US$ ~181 billion in 2018, and it expected to reach US$ 223 billion by 2026. As per the India Brand Equity Foundation, Indian pharmaceutical companies invested ~7.0% of their revenues in the R&D process in 2015 and R&D investment grew by 8.6% in 2019. Thus, increasing R&D expenditure is fueling the growth of the solvent evaporation market.
