Drug delivery system is a method in which the therapeutic substances are delivered through general route of administration to obtain the therapeutic effect in humans or animals. The correct dose of drugs release their functional ingredients in the targeted area at the appropriate time. Drug delivery technologies helps to improve the absorption, distribution, elimination, and drug release profile for developing the product safety and efficiency. Drug delivery technologies are considered an important aspect of pharmaceutical products which are often used by pharmaceutical companies for extending the product’s lifecycle.

Drug Delivery Technologies Market Drivers

Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, growing demand for biologics, technological advancements, and new product launches are some of the factors driving the growth of the market. According to the National Center of Biotechnology Information (NCBI), in 2018, around 45%, or 133 million, Americans were affected by one of the chronic diseases.

Moreover, the Capsugel, a global leader in delivering high quality, innovative dosage forms to the healthcare industry, launches the new drug delivery system as per the commitment to innovate for their costumer. For instance, in October 2015, Capsugel announced the global commercial launch of its enTRinsic drug delivery technology, providing full enteric protection and targeted release of gastric acid and heat sensitive active ingredients to the upper gastrointestinal tract.

Furthermore, in April 2019, Aquestive Therapeutics, Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) accepted the company’s New Drug Application (NDA) for their investigational product, Riluzole oral film (ROF), which the company intends to market under the brand name, Exservan. ROF is used for treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ROF is delivered through a postage stamp sized film which dissolves in the mouth. The FDA had designated orphan drug status to the drug in January 2018.

However, risk factors such as needle stick injuries and side effects of drugs are restricting the market growth to a certain level. According to a 2014 estimate by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry are at a risk of needle sticks and sharps related injuries which expose the workers to blood borne pathogens.
