Growth in demand for sustained release coating in the In Vitro application is driving the market.
The sustained release coating market size is projected to grow from USD 478 million in 2019 to USD 660 million by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.6%, during the forecast period.
The demand for sustained release coating has improved in recent years due to its increased consumption in the APAC region. In addition, the increasing use of sustained release coating in varied applications, such as In Vitro and In Vivo, has further contributed to the growth of this market. The newer, high-growth substrate of sustained release coatings include tablets, capsules, and pills. For instance, there is a sharp rise in demand for tablets that are increasingly favored as a new high-performance substrate for pharmaceutical drug applications.

Ethyl & methyl cellulose is expected to be the largest polymer material type during the forecast period.
Ethyl & methyl cellulose was the most extensively used sustained release coating material. Its primary release mechanism is drug diffusion across a water-insoluble membrane. It is an aqueous colloidal dispersion of ethyl cellulose polymer, which can be used as a moisture barrier as well as in sustained release and taste-masking applications. So, these properties help them to make the most favorable over other polymer material type.

APAC to record the highest growth rate during the forecast period.
The APAC sustained release coating market is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to its rising demand from Japan, India, China, and South Korea. China is expected to lead the demand for sustained release coating due to the increase in the production of pharmaceutical drugs. Generic drug manufacturing in APAC is a lucrative prospect for many foreign investors. Numerous multinational pharmaceutical drugs manufacturers are focusing on Asian countries, such as China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Indonesia, to balance the impending patent expiration of branded drugs with the manufacturing of generic drugs.

A large pool of scientific talent and well-defined R&D infrastructure complement the pharmaceutical formulations market in the APAC region.
