Multiple Unit Pellet Systems Market to reach an ~US$ 5.07 Bn by the end of 2032 | FMI

[349 Pages Report] As per Future Market Insights, the global multiple unit pellet systems (MUPS) market valued US$ 3.48 Bn in 2021 and is projected to exhibit growth at 3.5% CAGR between 2022 and 2032, with an estimated valuation of US$ 5.07 Bn in 2032.

MUPS are multi-particulate pellet formulations that complement the advantages of pellet-filled capsules and tablets into a single dosage form. Once administered as tablets, MUPS disintegrate into their subunits rapidly after swallowing and starts diffusing their subunits across the stomach and small intestine.

When compared to simple tablets or capsules, MUPS systems have advantages, such as better dose adjustment and a reduction in intestinal mucosa irritation with simple units’ drug disintegration. The multiparticulate technology makes it feasible to administer drugs that really are incompatible. These dosage forms are gaining transactions during the anticipated period due to their high patient compliance.

Prolonged or delayed-release MUPS formulations provide drugs at a pre- determined rate, extending the therapeutic effect, in contrast to the traditional delivery systems. Furthermore, intestinal systems for drug delivery may depend on delayed release of multi-particulate formulations to reduce dose dumping and decrease dosage variability between individuals.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • Extended-release dosage forms are the leading segment as a formulation, and held approximately 47.1% of value share in 2021.
  • Based on dosage form, capsules are leading in the global multiple unit pellet systems market, and is expected to exhibit growth at a CAGR rate of 3.3% through 2022 & beyond.
  • By drug class, the proton pump inhibitors segment is expected to witness growth at 3.6% CAGR during the forecast period.
  • Hospital pharmacies are projected to hold around 31.4% of the demand share by 2032.
  • North America is expected to dominate the global MUPS market, with the U.S. accounting for significant share in the market.

“Increasing demand for gastro retentive drug delivery systems and rapid rise in demand for modified release MUPS products, is set to propel the demand of multiple unit pellet systems across the globe,” says an analyst of future market insights.
