Process analytical technology Market: Market Overview

The traditional ways of production of pharmaceuticals involved processes such as manufacturing of the finished products and also laboratory analysis for verifying the quality of the final finished products. But these traditional methods have some disadvantages as recurring manufacturing difficulties, continual process optimization, and the possibility of failed batches also. Hence to overcome these problems the new technology known as PAT (Process Analytical Technology) was introduced by FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to change the mode of operation.

Pharmaceutical industries are using PAT for the use of raw material properties, process monitoring, manufacturing parameters, and chemometric techniques to produce products of suitable quality as per end users. The demand for PAT is rising because of the government regulations and rules in pharmaceutical manufacturing has led to increasing the investments on the research and development expenditure for developing safety solutions. The real-time data is also provided using PAT applications while manufacturing the pharmaceutical products. The rise in demand for the quality based products in the pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries has led to deploying the PAT in the operations while generating the end products because quality parameter should be generated in designing of the products and it is necessary to check before product development. PAT is mainly preferred by the manufacturers because of its advantages like reduced human errors in the operations and improved operator safety.

Process analytical technology Market: Drivers and Restraints

The primary factor responsible for driving the growth of the demand for the process analytical technology is that rising requirement of the reduction in the variation of the manufacturing processes by manufacturers in the various industry verticals such as pharmaceuticals and manufacturing. The process analytical technology is used for building the quality into the products while developing and improvise the process safety. Also, process analysis technology provides manufacturers the ability to control manufacturing processes and enhanced understanding of the processes; this factor is also contributing significantly to increasing the popularity among the manufacturers. On the other hand, it requires expertise, specialised person to operate the PAT tools. Also, the implementation cost is very higher. These are major restraining factors for the growth of the process analytical technology tools.
