The oral thin films market consists of sales of the oral thin films by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that refer to a drug delivery dosage system composed of a mono polymeric thin film applied in the mouth, for a quick release of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) when placed on the tongue.The purpose of oral thin film (OTF) is to deliver therapeutic substances into the oral cavity or the stomach tract, where they are absorbed and transported directly to the circulatory system.

Oral thin-film technologies ensure a fast and sustained release of the active substance, ensuring the ideal dose reaches the correct location within the body.

The main types of oral thin films include sublingual film and fast dissolving dental/buccal film.The sublingual film refers to oral thin films that rapidly dissolve under the tongue and are quickly absorbed by blood with the help of tissue.

It is used to treat patients who are recovering from opioid misuse disorder.These oral thin films are used in treatment of schizophrenia, migraine, opioid dependence, nausea and vomiting.

They are sold through hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies, and other distribution channels.

Rising demand for thin-film drug delivery systems is propelling the growth of the oral thin film market.Thin films have been identified as a potential alternative to standard dosage forms.

It is a convenient, self-administrable, and fast-dissolving dosage form for the delivery of medications, which makes it a versatile drug delivery platform.Thin films are taken orally and do not require water to swallow to absorb a drug.

OTF is more patient-friendly due to its rapid dissolution rate.Due to these reasons, the demand for thin-film drug delivery systems is increasing which is bringing more demand for oral thin films as well.

For instance, in January 2021, a Turkish Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences report shows that the global thin-film pharmaceutical products market is expected to increase from $7 billion in 2015 to over $15 billion by the end of 2024. It estimates that there will be an increase of 117% in 10 years. Thus, increasing demand for thin-film drug delivery systems is driving the growth of the oral thin film market.
