Product Definition:

A sugar-coated tablet is a pharmaceutical dosage form in which the drug is coated with a layer of sugar. The purpose of this coating is to protect the drug from stomach acids, and to improve its palatability.

Colored Sugar Coated Tablets:

Colored sugar coated tablets are used as a coating in medicines and other nutritional supplements. The coating is applied to the tablet so that it can be identified by the patient and also because different colors indicate different drugs or supplements. Colored sugar coated tablets are available in both immediate release and extended release forms, which have slightly different drug mixtures depending on their usage.

Colorless Sugar Coated Tablets:

The colorless sugar coated tablets are used in the treatment of diabetes. The active ingredient in these tablets is called “N-Acetyl-cocamine” or simply NAC for short. It is a naturally occurring compound found in the skin of grapes as well as other fruits such as plums, apples, pears and berries among others.

Application Insights:

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period, owing to high consumption of sugar coated tablets in daily dosage forms such as chewable/lozenges and capsules/pills. In addition, increasing R&D activities for new product development and technological innovations are projected to fuel growth over the coming years.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest growing regions during the forecast period owing to rising geriatric population base that requires long-term treatment with medication, coupled with an increase in chronic diseases leading towards higher healthcare expenditure levels within countries such as China and India.

Growth Factors:

  • Rising demand for sugar-free food products: The global market for sugar-free food products is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2016 to 2021. This growth can be attributed to the increasing awareness about the health benefits of sugar-free foods among consumers, especially in developed countries. Sugar Coated Tablets are witnessing increasing demand as a key ingredient in sugar-free food products, due to their ability to provide sweetness and flavor without adding any calories or carbohydrates.
  • Growing popularity of functional foods: Functional foods are those that offer additional health benefits beyond basic nutrition. They are becoming increasingly popular among consumers due to the rising awareness about the importance of healthy eating habits. Sugar Coated Tablets are being used as key ingredients in many functional food formulations, owing to their ability to improve taste and texture while providing added health benefits such as weight management and diabetes control/prevention.
