Restraint: Preference for alternative modes of drug delivery
Several alternative drug delivery modes are available for patients and end users. The benefits of these alternatives over topical drug delivery form a key restraint to the growth of this market. Of these, the oral route is the most preferred as it is easy to use, convenient, cost-effective, safe, and acceptable.
Furthermore, orally administered drugs can be conveniently stored and are portable, economical, noninvasive, and safe. No special training is required for the administration of these drugs as compared to topical formulations. Injectables also witness widespread use—for example, insulin injections for diabetics to self-administer.
Opportunity: Delivery of biologics through the transdermal route
The delivery of biologics through the transdermal route is one of the emerging trends in the topical drug delivery market. The transdermal delivery of large molecules as an alternative to intramuscular, subcutaneous, or intravenous routes of administration is expected to provide significant patient benefits, such as painless drug delivery and cost-effective treatment.
