Pharmaceutical Drug Delivery Market Size, COVID-19 Impact Analysis, Regional Outlook, Application Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2022 – 2028

  • Report ID: GMI3993

Pharmaceutical Drug Delivery Market size is expected to increase substantially from 2022 to 2028. This is given the advantages of pharmaceutical drug delivery technologies, such as seamless drug delivery to the target site, low off-target accumulation, and increased patient compliance. Moreover, the strong focus on the development of nanoparticles to deliver new modalities to undruggable targets and control their release in formulations will further augment industry share in the years ahead. A drug delivery system refers to a carrier or medium for administering pharmaceutical products to patients. The pharmaceutical drug delivery systems consist of various forms, including controlled-release and oral delivery systems. They can help maximize therapeutic efficacy by controlling drug pharmacokinetics, reducing toxicity, increasing accumulation at the target site, as well as improving patient compliance and acceptance.

Rising prevalence of chronic conditions including kidney disease will foster the pharmaceutical drug delivery market trends during the forecast timeframe. As per the CDC, nearly 15% of U.S. adults have chronic kidney disease, which could boost the pharmaceutical application of targeted drug delivery through the use of nanomaterials for effective chronic disease treatment. Such factors, along with an increase in healthcare spending across the developing economies, will further generate opportunities for industry growth during the forecast timeline.

Based on type of delivery system, the polymeric drug delivery segment is set to account for a major share in the pharmaceutical drug delivery market by 2028. This can be credited to the myriad benefits of polymeric nanoparticles in drug delivery, including increased drug penetration and retention, controlled release, and the transport of insoluble drugs. The escalating development of novel polymeric drug delivery platforms, including TREKKA Therapeutics’ CAPRO, for pharma and biopharma companies to improve dosing, efficacy, accuracy, and reproducibility in drug discovery and delivery research will also foster the segment expansion in the coming years.

Latin America pharmaceutical drug delivery market is poised to depict a strong growth rate through 2028, driven by the high burden of cancer and growing healthcare expenditure in Brazil. According to the National Cancer Institute’s report, in 2020, the incidence rate of oral cancer in men was 9.25/100,000 inhabitants in the country. This growing burden of cancer could proliferate the need for the targeted delivery of anticancer drugs to improve treatment effectiveness, reduce side effects of drugs, and in turn, bolster the regional growth.

Boston Scientific Corporation, Bayer AG, AstraZeneca, Amgen, Sanofi, Inc., Merck & Co., Inc., 3M, GlaxoSmithKline PLC, Becton, Dickinson and Company, Antares Pharma, Pfizer Inc., F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., Novartis AG, and Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. are some of the prominent companies operating in the industry. These market participants are focusing on business expansions and new service launches to gain a competitive edge over rivals in the global industry.

COVID-19 Influence on Pharmaceutical Drug Delivery Market Trends:

The novel coronavirus pandemic has posed dramatic impacts on research and development activities across the pharmaceutical sector. The crisis has curtailed industry, academic, and government researches and clinical studies, due to the shifting focus towards COVID-19 treatment. These aforementioned factors may have resulted in a decline in the development of novel carrier systems for effective therapeutic drug delivery in non-COVID-related applications. Despite the initial lack of focus on non-COVID-19 treatment, the industry may regain traction over the coming years, due to the rising awareness about the use cases of nanomaterial-based drug delivery systems in amplifying therapeutic efficiencies of SARS-CoV-2 antiviral drugs and vaccines.
