Drug Delivery Systems Market Revenue Analysis 2015-2021 vs. Future Outlook 2022-2032

During the projection period, the worldwide drug delivery systems market would rise at a robust CAGR of 7.8% (2022-2032). Over the last five decades, there has been an increase in the frequency of severe chronic and infectious illnesses, which has increased demand for medication development.

According to the WHO, nearly 70 million people have been infected with lethal illnesses such as HIV. Such developments have naturally encouraged healthcare providers to create better medications and delivery systems. The COVID-19 pandemic increased the viability of medication delivery systems. As the number of infections rises on a daily basis, hospitals and clinics are experiencing severe shortages of critical medical equipment such as respirators and ventilators.

Leading pharmaceutical and healthcare businesses have increased manufacture of critical drug delivery systems to overcome this shortfall. The relaxation of lockdowns and social distancing measures is predicted to significantly restore production cycles, resulting in higher output and resolving acute shortages of medication delivery devices and systems.

Prominent Drug Delivery Systems Industry Growth Drivers

Development of Innovative Medications and Biologics to Upscale the Market Growth

Progress in various biology-related activities has created an once-in-a-lifetime chance to better understand the molecular consequences of human illnesses and develop innovative medications and biologics based on these variables.

Lipid, protein, and polymer technologies with improved lipid distribution in the body, limiting drug degradation owing to the external environment, and lowering the pace of drug clearance are among the recently identified enhanced drug delivery methods. Because modern pharmaceuticals and biologics are more efficient with a lower dosage of medications, they must be supported by sophisticated drug delivery methods to get optimum efficacy from the drug.

Advanced Drug Delivery Technologies to Widen Drug Delivery Systems Deployment

Some of the controlled and targeted oral drug delivery systems are duocap (capsule-in-a-capsule), electro capsule, and light up delivery monitoring technology (LDMT), which give a novel means of manufacturing poorly soluble chemicals and monitoring medication release rate. Advanced drug delivery technologies are being developed in order to solve solubility issues and make medications more lipid-soluble.

As a result, they may readily penetrate lipid barriers in the body, avoiding external environment concerns like photo degradation and pH fluctuations from impacting the medicine and obtaining the optimal concentration at the desired site to deliver the best therapeutic benefit. As a result, these advancements are projected to boost market growth.

Country-wise Analysis

What is the Growth Outlook for Drug Delivery Systems in North America?

Increased Acceptance of Enhanced Drug Delivery Solutions widening Growth Opportunities

According to Fact.MR, North America held the largest share of the global drug delivery system market during the past years. This pattern is likely to continue throughout the projection period, with the company maintaining its market share while increasing at a CAGR of 7.2%. However, the surge in R&D costs for sophisticated medication delivery systems in the United States is a major source of worry among important stakeholders.

Key drivers for the North American drug delivery systems market are the growing preference for self-administration of pharmaceuticals, increasing advancements in injectable drug delivery systems, the high acceptance rate of new healthcare technologies, and the high incidence of chronic illnesses. Chronic illnesses and disorders are becoming more common. Heart disease is a primary cause of mortality, imposing a massive cost on individuals, communities, healthcare professionals, and systems.

Almost half of all individuals in the United States suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 2 million new instances of cancer are predicted to be identified in the United States in 2022, with 609,000 people expected to die from cancer. Greater incidence of chronic diseases, government attempts to raise awareness about such conditions, increased R&D operations, and the launch of improved drug delivery technologies will all help to boost the United States market during the forecast period.

How do Growth Prospects appear in the Chinese Market?

Increasing Cases of Acute Diseases such as TB and Pneumonia will drive Market Development in China.

The Chinese market will provide genuine growth prospects, expanding at a 7.1% CAGR throughout the projection period and accounting for more than one-fifth of the worldwide drug delivery systems market.

The prevalence of acute diseases such as TB and pneumonia in a country like China, as well as favorable reimbursement rules for major drug delivery manufacturers, will fuel market development in China.

Why is Demand for Application Integration Rising Rapidly?

Targeted Drug Delivery Type to Snowball the Drug Delivery Systems Market

The targeted drug delivery type is predicted to be the dominating category, accounting for almost half of the worldwide drug delivery systems market and rising at a 6.8% CAGR during the forecast period. Nanotechnology application is a significant growth determinant for the segment. The incorporation of nanoparticles improves the penetration of the targeted tissue. These particles are easily absorbed by cells, allowing for more effective medication delivery. Microneedle medication administration is another prominent method.

The polymeric drug delivery market is expected to be the second-most profitable, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% during the projection period. The prominence of this delivery method can be ascribed to its effectiveness in large-scale localized medication distribution. Polymeric drug delivery is particularly beneficial in the treatment of chronic illnesses such as cancer, particularly solid tumors. It also has a reduced level of toxicity. During the projection period, the polymeric drug delivery segment will account for more than one-third of the worldwide drug delivery systems market.

Which Application will Leverage Drug Delivery Systems the Most?

Oncology Segment to be the Most Lucrative for Drug Delivery Systems Market

In terms of application, the oncology category will grow the quickest, with a CAGR of 7.5% accounting for more than a quarter of the market. The CNS category is the second-most profitable, accounting for more than one-fifth of the worldwide drug delivery systems market and rising at a 6.9% annual pace.

The rising frequency of malignancies such as leukemia, brain tumors, colon cancer, stomach cancer, and others has increased demand for sophisticated drug delivery systems in the oncology market. The CNS segment is predicted to grow due to an increase in demand for sophisticated treatment for a variety of neurological conditions such as dementia, epilepsy, and neuro infections.
