COVID-19 Impact on the Pharmaceutical Drug Delivery Technology Market

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.

There are large number of drugs and vaccines in various clinical trial phases which are expected to be launched in coming months/years under emergency usage authorization guidelines for treating COVID-19. As of May 2020, two vaccines are in Phase I clinical evaluation and 11 in pre-clinical stage. About 95 clinical studies are on-going for COVID-19 as potential drug therapies. Such strong pipeline is anticipated to drive the growth of this market.
