3D Printing Technology: A Contemporary Revolution in Drug Development

Main Article Content

Arpit Katiyar


As a recently developing technology, three-dimensional (3D) printing has a lot of potential in the pharmaceutical
sector and can cater patients and the pharmaceutical industry with innovative approaches. This technology allows
for the accurate creation of dosage forms, which can help with drug product design. It also facilitates treatment
for patients, such as individualized dosing, which can be used to treat particular disease states or patient groups.
New approaches and techniques for creating unique medication delivery systems are made possible by the
evolution of 3D techniques. The use of 3D printing technologies in the pharmaceutical industry is outlined in
this paper, with special consideration devoted to the benefits of these technologies for attaining quick medication
delivery, personalized drug delivery, compound drug delivery, and customizable drug delivery. This article
also demonstrates the history, advantages, prospects, applications, constraints, and difficulties of 3D printing
techniques in the area of developing pharmaceutical formulations. Pharmaceutical manufacturing is only one of
many industries where the 3D printing (3DP) technique has had an important impact since its introduction in the
early 1980s. Researchers and the public are becoming more interested in creating customized or individualized
dosage forms as a result of the shifting horizons. The current work validates the viability of volumetric 3DP for
quickly printing pharmaceutical items. This novel technology can enable the quick, on-demand manufacture of
pharmaceuticals and medical equipment with further optimization.
