Drug Delivery Devices Market
Drug Delivery Devices Market

Global Drug Delivery Devices Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 6% during the forecast period. Drug delivery devices are specialized tools made for a specific route of drug or therapeutic material administration. The devices are used once or more during medical procedures. Drug delivery devices present unique challenges in many areas of product development, such as regulatory strategy, design, and material considerations, as well as the creation and use of testing protocols. Growth in the number of diabetic patients as well as an increase in the prevalence of cancer and respiratory ailments are driving an increase in the use of drug delivery systems among patients and professionals. Technological advances in medical device manufacturing have led to the development of innovative drug delivery devices that ensure the right amount of medicine is delivered to the patient at the right time. In addition, the growing burden of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and COPD is driving the need for drug delivery devices. For instance, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, in 2020, approximately 19.3 million new cancer cases and 10 million cancer deaths have been reported worldwide. It is estimated that worldwide cancer cases will increase by 47% between 2020 and 2040. It is expected that 28.4 million cases will be recorded by 2040 worldwide. In addition, cardiovascular diseases accounted for about 32% of deaths globally in 2019. The rapid development of biopharmaceuticals and the development of many drugs capable of effectively curing chronic diseases has driven demand for drug delivery devices worldwide.

Pfizer, Inc.; Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc.; F. Hoffmann-La Roche, Ltd.; Novartis AG; BD; Bayer AG; uniQure N.V.; SIBIONO; GSK plc.; Amgen Inc. are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

“Amongst application, the diabetes segment held a significant share in the market in 2020”

On the basis of application, the drug delivery devices market has been classified into oncology, infectious diseases, respiratory diseases, diabetes, and others. The diabetes segment is to witness higher adoption of drug devices during the forecast period. This is mainly due to increasing cases of diabetes patients across the world. For instance, 34.2 million Americans have diabetes in 2018, of whom 26.8 million had a diagnosis and 7.3 million had been underdiagnosed, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). The adoption of drug delivery devices in the field of diabetes is therefore anticipated to be influenced by the rising number of cases of diabetes that have been diagnosed.

“North America to hold a significant share in the market”

North America held a significant share of the global drug delivery devices market. The main reasons for this region’s market dominance include the existence of important market participants, highly developed healthcare infrastructure and spending, and strategic partnerships. Along with this, it is predicted that throughout the forecast period, the prevalence of chronic diseases in the U.S. and a growing emphasis on preventative care will fuel market expansion in this region. Because of the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases like cancer and HIV, among others, the number of product launches, and the increasing number of initiatives by important market players, the United States (US) market for drug delivery devices is predicted to expand significantly during the study period. ​For instance, in Feb 2022 the generic Apokyn (apomorphine hydrochloride injection) drug cartridges received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration to treat hypomobility episodes brought on by advanced Parkinson’s disease. As a result, it is anticipated that during the projected period, the rising number of chronic diseases and product launches in the nation will both expand at a high CAGR. ​
