A Chapter by Markets Insights

The global sustained release excipients market size is expected to reach USD 1.6 billion by 2026 at a 7.1% CAGR during the forecast period


The global Sustained Release Excipients Market size is expected to reach USD 1.6 billion by 2026 at a 7.1% CAGR during the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing focus on novel drug delivery R&D and rising adoption of extended release formulations for treatment of chronic diseases are major factors driving the market.

Use of sustained release drug formulations provides patients relief from these symptoms and helps maintain desired therapeutic drug levels in the body. In comparison to conventional drugs, sustained drug release technologies provide a wide range of benefits. Reduced dosage frequency, improved patient compliance, maintenance of constant level of drug in blood plasma, lower instances of toxicity due to overdose, and higher cost-effectiveness in the long run are some of the major advantages of using this technology.

Global rise in incidence of chronic and infectious diseases has also resulted in antibiotic resistance, which negatively affects the market for conventional dosage forms. Thus, alternative methods to manage and treat these diseases are being implemented. Use of sustained release formulations has been widely accepted among physicians in order to combat antibiotic resistance. Since these formulations create desired therapeutic drug levels in blood plasma and reduce dosage frequency, they are the preferred choice of formulation among physicians, which increases their demand.
