The global Pharmaceutical Drug Delivery Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2,307.27 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

The pharmaceutical drug delivery market comprises products that help in administering pharmaceutical drugs to patients requiring medical treatment. Drug delivery systems aid in introducing drugs or therapeutics into the host system in a controlled and targeted manner. Common drug delivery technologies include oral, pulmonary, transdermal, injectable, and others. Drug delivery technologies provide various advantages such as controlled release of drugs, targeted drug delivery, improved patient compliance and safety. They help improve the efficacy of pharmaceutical drugs and reduce the frequency of drug administration.

Market key trends:

The pharmaceutical drug delivery market is witnessing rising preference for advanced drug delivery technologies owing to their targeted drug delivery approach and controlled release properties. Technologies such as transdermal drug delivery systems, oral thin films, and pulmonary drug delivery are gaining traction. Transdermal drug delivery provides non-invasive administration of drugs through skin for localized or systemic effects. Oral thin films are convenient strip-like formulations that dissolve quickly in mouth without water. Pulmonary drug delivery enables delivery of drugs directly to lungs for treating respiratory diseases. Nanotechnology-based drug delivery and 3D printing for pharmaceuticals also offer promising opportunities in the market.
