Global tablet coating market is anticipated to project a robust growth with an impressive CAGR in the forecast period, 2022-2026. The market is growing on the backbone of growing pharmaceutical industry along with the advancing drugs for various diseases. Moreover, increasing research and development taking place for the better and effective drugs for the diseases, along with the adoption of orphan drugs is anticipated to support the growth of the global tablet coating market in the upcoming five years. Furthermore, the shifting of pharmaceutical manufacturing to emerging markets and also increased outsourcing of operations of these drugs to various countries is anticipated to support the growth of the market in the next five years. Market players may find good opportunity in growing biologics and biosimilars industry also the increasing focus on sports nutrition and the technological advancements taking place in the healthcare market is also significantly aggregating the market growth.

Tablet film coating is the polymer coating that brings a uniform covering that provides a better mechanical strength. It covers a tablet which masks the taste of the drug, easier to swallow, or protects the drugs such that they are conveniently delivered at the targeted site. For an instance, drugs that are specifically designed for a liver disease, when ingested the drugs are safely delivered in the liver and then the outer layering breaks off releasing the drug in liver. Tablet coatings are made of harmless polymers that are internally digestible and does not hinder with the treatment of the disease.

The global tablet coating market is segmented by polymer, application, functionality, type, end user, competitional landscape, and regional distribution. Based on polymer, the market is further bifurcated into cellulosic polymer, vinyl polymer, and acrylic polymer. Cellulosic polymer is anticipated to hold the largest market share in the next five years, on the grounds of high adoption of these polymers since these polymers form coating that has good film strength, aqueous solubility, and compressibility, less sensitivity to wet granulation, flowability, and better tableting at a low price. Global regulatory acceptance along with the widespread distributing vendors are also supporting the growth of the market segment in the next five years, thereby projecting the growth of global tablet coating market.

Holding major shares of the global tablet coating market, major competitors are Air Liquide S.A., Sensient Technologies Corporation Ltd., Merck KGaA, Kerry Group PLC, DuPont De Numeours Inc., Aquadry Pharma Pvt. Ltd., BASF SE, Biogrund GmbH, Colorcon Inc., Evonik Industries AG, among others. Market players are focusing on the financial support toward the research and development toward the technical advancements of the tablet coatings thereby supporting the global tablet coating market in the next five years.
