3D Printed Drugs Market Insights

The global 3D printed drugs market size was valued at USD 72.02 million in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.32% from 2022 to 2030. 3D printed drugs are prescriptions that are created using the 3D printing process to give individuals safe and effective tailored medications. These medications have a unitary porous architecture that disperses easily in the mouth, eliminating the need to swallow high-dose medications whole. It allows manufacturers to modify the size, look, form, and rate of distribution of a wide range of drugs with ease.

The global 3D printed drugs market based on technology, application, end-user, and region: The zip dose segment held the highest share of the market in 2021. This drug technology is easy to use and beneficial to patients with dysphagia. Furthermore, an increasing requirement among geriatric & pediatric patients for rapid soluble drugs that disperse quickly in the mouth drives the market growth.

Inkjet printer technology, on the other hand, is anticipated to expand at the fastest rate during the projected period. As it generates 3D drugs at a steady rate and has technological superiorities over other techniques, it has a high adoption rate among patients. Inkjet printing is a method of depositing three-dimensional shapes in solid dosage forms by spraying various combinations of active pharmaceutical ingredients and excipients (inks) through a nozzle. Furthermore, increased epilepsy incidences continued technological advancements in 3D printing technology, and expanding awareness of this technology in emerging nations are primary market growth drivers.
