Pharmaceutical Hot Melt Extrusion Equipment Market By Usage Area (Research and Academia, Contract Manufacturing Organization, Pharmaceutical Companies), By Product (RAM Extruders, Radial Screen Equipment, Roll and Screw Extruders) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Hot melt extrusion (HME) is the process of using heat and presser for melting polymer and continuously forcing the material through an orifice. HME process has been developed for producing polymer products with uniform shape and density and has been used in industrial application since the 1930s. Recently, HME technology has been brought in use in pharmaceutical application where it is dominantly used for manufacturing APIs with polymers to augment bioavailability or prepare precursors for thermoplastic drug eluting devices. This report discusses the principles of HME equipment in pharmaceutical manufacturing along with its future prospects and applications.
