Increased contract manufacturing in pharmaceutical

Changing climates, consumption patterns, and lifestyles and rising disposable incomes across the world have resulted in increased health-related issues. For instance, the number of people who have diabetes has witnessed a near fourfold increase in the last three decades. To cope with the rise in health issues, governments across the world are investing heavily in healthcare sectors in order to provide a better-quality life for their citizens.

Gaurav Mohindru, a lead unit operations research analyst at Technavio, says, “The growth of the overall pharmaceutical market has also led to the growth in certain subsectors, such as contract manufacturing. Contract manufacturing organizations of small and large molecule drug substances and formulated drug products have had lucrative businesses in recent years.”

Growing demand for packaged food and beverages

Packaged food and beverages have been witnessing a rise in demand across various countries, which has resulted in the growing demand for RADs. The growing disposable income in countries, such as India, China, and Brazil, is a key factor for the rising demand for packaged food and beverage products.

“The continuous growth in population in various countries has given rise to the demand for packaged food products, which has resulted in the increased demand for packaging paper. Since RADs are widely used in paper as well as the food processing industry, the rising demand for packaged food is directly resulting in the growing demand for RADs. Thus, the increase in the demand for packaged food and beverage products is expected to drive the sales of RADs in the forecast period,” adds Gaurav.

R&D opportunities

Drying technology is a blend of material science and transport phenomena. Since drying mechanisms involve transient energy, mass, and momentum transfer through a porous or nonporous medium, with phase change and with or without chemical reactions, to describe and model them is a complex task. Due to this complexity and diversity, there is no universal drying theory. This has created opportunities for R&D in various areas.

Since the inception of the International Drying Symposium (IDS) series in 1978 in Canada, there has been a remarkable increase in R&D to understand drying technology fundamentals and applying them to enhance the performance of traditional drying techniques as well as developing innovative ones. IDS has been a biennial event since 1977 and is organized in major geographies globally, such as Canada (1978), France (1988), Greece (1998), and India (2008).
