Global Pharmaceutical Drug Delivery Industry: Major Impact of COVID19 on Revenue Generation

This study involved four major activities to estimate the current size of the pharmaceutical drug delivery market. Exhaustive secondary research was carried out to collect information on the market, its peer markets, and its parent market. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain through primary research. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the complete market size. Thereafter, market breakdown and data triangulation procedures were used to estimate the market size of segments and subsegments.

Impact of COVID19 on global Industry:

Coronavirus has spread across 215 countries and territories and affected more than 4.4 million people, with close to 300 thousand deaths. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are estimating that the share of infectious diseases segment has increased and is anticipated that this segment will grow significantly during the forecast period. COVID-19 has given momentum to drug delivery market and it will show significant growth rate during 2020-2021.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has been increasing at an exponential level in many countries. This has led to the need to improve patient care and provide added nutritional/immunity support (including vitamins and other curing drugs) to patients affected by the virus. This has led to an increased adoption of drugs, such as vit C, multivitamin, antiviral and so on, which in turn is expected to support market growth to a certain extent.

Coronavirus has spread across 215 countries and territories and affected more than 4.4 million people, with close to 300 thousand deaths. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 globally, medical practices of all sizes are under immense pressure, and healthcare providers need to rely on teleradiology solutions to read diagnostic reports and treat patients. Teleradiology solutions also help to improve the efficiency of diagnostic imaging by optimizing and simplifying radiology with correct reads and reduced manual errors. As the battle against COVID-19 continues, there is a growing need to make teleradiology solutions more common.
