NEW YORK, April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- US demand for drug delivery products is forecast to grow 6.1 percent annually to $251 billion in 2019. Specialized dosage formulations that improve therapies for autoimmune, cancer, cardiovascular, neurological, viral, and other debilitating disorders will lead gains. Included in this group are human and humanized monoclonal antibodies, polymer-encapsulated medicines, and brachytherapy seeds. Among drug delivery devices, pen injectors and retractable prefillable syringes will record the fastest revenue growth based on safety, infection prevention, and ease-of-use advantages. Demand for oral drug delivery products will benefit from bioavailability and reduced dosing advantages, while controlled-release formulations will continue to dominate revenues. On the downside, patent expirations and generic competition will soften overall growth potential for this product segment.
Prefillable syringes to lead strong gains in parenteral drug delivery
US demand for parenteral drug delivery products is projected to post double-digit gains through 2019. Advances in monoclonal antibodies and polymer-encapsulated medicines will underlie growth. The use of new and existing therapies based on human and humanized monoclonal antibodies will improve the effectiveness of remedies against various forms of cancer and other long-term disorders, such as allergy-linked asthma, Crohn's disease, rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, and wet age-related macular degeneration. Enhanced bioavailability and reduced toxicity advantages will boost applications for polymer-enhanced medicines in the treatment of conditions such as cancer complications, hepatitis B and C, and multiple sclerosis.
Among parenteral delivery devices, prefillable syringes will account for the largest and fastest expanding demand over the long term. Improvements in safety features such as automatic needle retraction, along with overall infection prevention and response time advantages, will benefit growth. Prefillable syringes will also broaden self-use applications based on advances in pen injectors and related apparatus.
