Process analytical technology (PAT) is a mechanism that designs, analyzes, and controls manufacturing through measuring parameters that affects critical quality attributes. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) formulated the PAT framework with an aim to ensure high quality performance. This has led to adoption across U.S. pharmaceutical companies. Regulatory bodies across the globe may implement such policies over the forecast period. U.S. process spectroscopy market size is expected to witness potential impact of this framework over the next eight years.
Companies are focusing to reduce variable expenditure by minimizing the re-work and errors. This equipment enables monitoring and control effectively & efficiently and also checks quality, which in turn will drive process spectroscopy market share over the forecast timeframe. Increasing competition has led to companies lowering the price and raising quality to gain competitive advantage. Growing awareness regarding importance of these devices among industries is forecast to drive demand. Companies with ineffective process control face numerous problems such as high production and inventory time, visual defects, which is likely to hamper brand image.
Effective implementation offers benefits such as consumer satisfaction, low production cost & inspection cost, efficient utilization of resources, and increased sales. High capital investment coupled with deficiency of skilled labor will negatively impact the production rate. Emergence of cost effective technologies is anticipated to lead in price reduction. Timely consultant intervention is predicted to smoothen the integration process and ensure the best possible return on investment.
