US & Canada Drug Delivery Technologies Industry to Grow at a CAGR of 8.9% by 2017 says a New Research Report at

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) July 10, 2013

Patent expiry of major blockbuster drugs is a prime concern for pharmaceutical companies, as developing a new chemical entity (NCE) is more expensive and time consuming than a novel drug delivery technology. Therefore, in recent years, several pharmaceutical companies have employed drug delivery technology as a life cycle management tool for some of their blockbuster drugs, the patents for which are set to expire in the near future.

The North American drug delivery market was estimated to be worth $66.7 billion in 2012, and is expected to register a CAGR of 8.9% between 2012 and 2017. Based on the route of administration, the drug delivery market has been classified as oral, pulmonary, injectable, transdermal, implantable, ocular, nasal, transmucosal, and topical.

The drug delivery technologies that have recently gained importance in the North American market include or dispersible tablet (ODT), dry powder inhalers, transdermal patches, needle-free injectors, auto and pen injectors, and buccal transmucosal tablets; controlled release is the most widely accepted technology. The use of implantable devices for drug delivery is also on a rise.

Big pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer and Merck have established in-house capabilities for the development of drug delivery technologies. On the contrary, many other companies are still relying on specialty companies engaged in the development of drug delivery technologies. High level of competition and increasing need for outsourcing has resulted in the drug delivery market to be fragmented, with several small companies developing novel drug delivery technologies for niche therapeutic applications.

The North American drug delivery market is largely dominated by the U.S. (accounting for about 89% of the overall market). The key drivers for the U.S. drug delivery market are the well established pharmaceutical industry, healthcare reforms, and favorable changes in the FDA review process. Factors such as low cost drug manufacturing and rising number of drug delivery formulations and devices are propelling the Canadian market.
