With enhanced efficiency, fast dissolving thin films are gaining significant momentum, creating growth opportunities for oral thin films market

As per a study by Fact.MR, the global oral thin films market is exhibiting steady growth due to the increasing prevalence of neurological disorders and opioid overdoses. The trend is expected to continue for the forecast period between 2021 and 2031.

According to the report published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, more than 2,394 per 100,000 people were suffering from neurological disorders in India. Thus, the rising incidence of neurological disorders is expected to drive the growth of the oral thin film market.

According to the World Health Organization, in the year 2018, over 5.3% of the world population aged 15 to 64 years used drugs at least once. Furthermore, around 58 million from the total of 269 million people were suffering from opioid addiction, while more than 35 million people were suffering from drug use disorders. Therefore, demand for combating such abuse is increasing, leading to rise in the demand for oral thin films.

North America accounts for the largest market share owing to the increasing population pool addressing schizophrenia medications therapies, due to their hectic lifestyles. Thanks to the highly advanced medical care and increasing healthcare expenditure, the region is expected to become a center point for the expansion of the oral thin films market.

“Increasing research regarding the development of single & multiple polymer-based films to improve drug load capacity will expand the scope for the expansion of oral thin films in the long-run,” says the Fact.MR analyst.
