Europe Thin Film Drugs Market Size & Growth (2022 to 2027):

As per the research report, the size of the Europe Thin Film Drugs market is valued at USD 5.18 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 8.09 billion by 2027 at 9.33% CAGR during the forecast period 2022 to 2027.

The European thin-film drugs market is developing robust business strategies, aiming to influence various users and customers, primarily driving the market. Thin-film drugs are emerged as an alternative to tablets or capsules due to their improved efficacy. The drugs are made from polymers that dissolve quickly when held in the mouth or oral cavity, delivering the drug directly into the body's systemic circulation, especially by sublingual absorption. The bioavailability of a sublingually administered dose is around 35%, with the onset of reaction in 5-10 mins. All these factors increase the popularity of thin film drugs in the pharmaceutical industry.

Oral thin-film drugs provide high patient compliance ease of storage and transport. In addition, they offer precise dosing with the desired effective result. Thus, the thin film drug delivery systems market has been substantially attractive for the past several years. The high level of acceptance and the impressive benefits have further boosted the European thin films drugs market.

Coupled with effective customer-centric strategies will increase the volume of consumers. Furthermore, drivers such as growing demand for efficient drug delivery systems, low cost of manufacturing thin film drugs compared to traditional dosage forms, and increased research to develop new polymeric thin films are predicted to increase the demand for the European market.

In addition, beneficial government initiatives and an increase in the number of pharmaceutical companies are other drivers expected to increase the growth of the Europe thin film drugs market.

However, the European thin film drugs market will be negatively impacted by the high costs of treatment, availability of various alternative drug delivery options, and lack of awareness. In addition, some of the solvents and polymers used in film coating are relatively harmful. Inflammation due to some of the organic solvents used as vehicles for film-forming polymers could present a risk to the patient.
