However, recovery from the shortage and increased use of pharmaceutical spray drying for COVID-19 treatments positively impacted the market. Spray drying played a crucial role in enhancing drug delivery for treatments like niclosamide(NCL) for COVID-19.
  2. Rising Prevalence of Chronic Diseases: The pharmaceutical industry is witnessing a surge in chronic diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Spray drying methods are increasingly adopted due to their advantages, including quick drying, adaptability, and compatibility with heat-sensitive materials. Spray drying enables the production of quality drugs, aligning with the growing demand for effective treatments for chronic illnesses.
  3. Technological Advancements: The development of biologic-based drugs is fueling the demand for spray drying as an alternative to traditional manufacturing methods. This innovative approach offers control over product properties, downstream advantages, and enables amorphous solid dispersion (ASDs) formulations, contributing to the market's growth.
  4. Excipient Production Segment: Pharmaceutical excipients, essential for drug formulation, are experiencing significant growth due to their role in optimizing drug product performance. Increasing investments in excipient manufacturing facilities and government initiatives are boosting the demand for spray drying, particularly in excipient production.
  5. North America's Dominance: North America holds a substantial share in the market, driven by the presence of major pharmaceutical players, high research and development expenditure, and technological advancements. Expansion initiatives and acquisitions by pharmaceutical companies in the region further bolster market growth.

Despite the promising growth prospects, challenges such as high costs associated with spray drying and the need for skilled operators may hinder market expansion.
