Global Industry Influencing Factors:
The growth of this market is majorly driven by the high prevalence of skin and soft tissue infections, the increasing prevalence of eye diseases, and burns. However, the presence of alternative drug delivery modes such as oral and injectable routes is expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.
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.
Challenge: Technical barriers related to skin irritation and permeability
The potential for local adverse reactions and skin irritation is a significant challenge for topical drug delivery formulation and transdermal systems. However, the emergence of novel techniques for skin permeation and the development of methods to reduce skin irritation would help widen the topical drug delivery formulations and transdermal systems market for hydrophilic compounds, macromolecules, and conventional drugs for new therapeutic indications.
