World Transdermal Patch Markets for Specialty Materials 2016-2020 - The Key Transdermal Patch Design Factors, Material Selection Issues, Technologies and Performance Factors

Jan 29, 2016, 07:10 ET from Research and Markets

DUBLIN, Jan. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Transdermal Patch Markets for Specialty Materials" report to their offering.

Advances in synthetic materials and patch design have led to transdermal drug patches that are more esthetically acceptable and that are capable of delivering sustained dosing of active compounds for several days in a small package.

Growth in demand for drug patches is being driven by several factors - factors with strong demographic and population trend underpinnings. Further improvements to transdermal transport and the introduction of new patch designs will keep this segment expanding through 2020.

Important materials markets for transdermal patches include patch backing layers, release liners, matrix materials and membranes. As patch designs expand to accommodate the need for higher drug loads in smaller packages, the role of specialty materials will remain a key design factor.
