Transdermal drug delivery devices allow for the transcutaneous administration of medications to the circulatory system (TDDS). To ensure a rapid reaction, TDDS maintain clinically appropriate drug concentrations and dispense drugs at a predetermined rate. TDD devices are often used in the management of pain as well as the treatment of chronic illnesses like diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases.
The transdermal drug delivery systems market overview are growing rapidly over recent years, mainly due to the growing geriatric population and the prevalence of chronic diseases. Moreover, rapid advancements and increasing adoption of transdermal drug delivery technology are expected to accelerate the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Market Research Future (MRFR) states that the global transdermal drug delivery systems market had created a value of USD 45.19 billion by 2030. This market value is expected to appreciate at a double-digit CAGR of 5.1% throughout the forecast period (2022 – 2030). Increasing cancer cases is a major driving force pushing upmarket growth.
The market is rising as a result of the increase in needlestick injuries as well as the expanding uses for biologics. The development of cutting-edge TDD systems has necessitated significant R&D investments, which are speeding up industry growth. Also, improving patient outcomes and experiences, increasing awareness, and favourable reimbursement policies all contribute to the growth of the industry.
On the other hand, side effects of TDD systems usages such as edema & irritation and the triviality of these delivery systems such as variation in adhesion to different skin types, impede the growth of the market. Moreover, the drug entry imposed by the skin’s impermeability restricts the usages of TDDS. Also, drugs that require high blood levels can’t be administered through TDDS as it is limited only to potent molecules. Factors as such are thereby anticipated to affect the market growth over the forecast period.
