U.S. Oral Solid Dosage Contract Manufacturing Market Growth & Trends

The U.S. oral solid dosage contract manufacturing market size is estimated to reach USD 16.42 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growth of the market is attributed to factors such as the increasing pharmaceutical outsourcing and technological advancements in the country. The demand for patient-centric dosage forms has been increasing with time, making it a pivotal trend in the medical field, as it enhances medication adherence. Consequently, manufacturers are producing oral dosage forms that prioritize ease of swallowing.

To render solid oral drugs more user-friendly, drug sponsors are innovatively transforming drugs into micro or mini tablets and sprinkle capsules. This formulation approach is gaining popularity, especially among the pediatric and geriatric populations. The growing prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases is one of the major factors responsible for the rising demand for novel therapies. Furthermore, the growing geriatric population is contributing to the rising incidence of chronic diseases, further supporting the demand for novel treatment processes.

Adverse drug reactions to existing drugs are also contributing to the demand for novel treatment options. For instance, in July 2022, research published by the University of Liverpool stated that adverse drug reaction-related hospital admissions increased from 6.5% in 2004 to 16.5% in 2019. A rise in the number of cases involving adverse drug reactions to existing therapies is expected to boost the demand for new therapies in the future.

For many biopharmaceutical companies, innovations and speed-to-clinic factors are of critical importance. Small companies and specialty biopharmaceutical players increasingly rely upon delivering these important requirements within the industry. Many CROs and CDMOs promote themselves as one-stop-shop companies. The one-stop-shop service model is where a CRO handles everything from API to dosage form and early development to commercialization. To provide these services, a CDMO must have a wide range of enabling technologies and specialized handling capabilities to address specific problem statements.

Furthermore, increasing undertaking of strategic initiatives by key players is also expected to drive U.S. oral solid dosage (OSD) contract manufacturing market growth. For instance, in January 2023, Catalent and Ethicann collaborated to develop Ethicann’s clinical drug pipeline using Catalent’s orally disintegrating tablet (ODT) technology ‘Zydis’. In another instance, in March 2023, Lonza announced that its new clinical and commercial drug product manufacturing line at its Visp site had become fully operational. The expansion is expected to strengthen the company’s Drug Product Services (DPS) offering.
