INTRODUCTION

NEEDLE-FREE DEVICES

In recent years there has been a growing concern regarding needle-based drug delivery devices due to needle phobia, increasing cases of needlestick injuries and the transmission of blood-borne diseases. Needle-free drug delivery devices are considered as an effective alternative and novel technique to introduce drugs into a patient’s body without invading the skin with a needle. It is growing in popularity and has received considerable attention during the past few years primarily due to painless, effective and safe drug delivery methods. Needle-free drug delivery devices typically include needle-free injectors, inhalers, transdermal patches and other devices based on novel needle technologies (e.g., microneedles and advanced pen needles).

According to BCC Research estimates, the global market for needle-free drug delivery technologies (excluding drug sales) is estimated to be approximately $1 billion, whereas the market for pharmaceutical products combined with needle-free technology is estimated to be more than $25 billion. The needle-free injector segment is considered one of the fastest growing segments within the needle-free device and technology market. Key players within the market for needle-free drug delivery technologies include 3M, Consort Medical, PharmaJet, Ypsomed Holding, Zogenix, Antares Pharma and Bioject Medical Technologies.

STUDY BACKGROUND

Delivery of medicine and drugs to patients is typically done through pills, tablets or even in liquid form, either orally or using injection. Drug delivery is administered by injection (intravenously) when the drug must reach the systemic circulation quicker, or when the drug has a shorter half-life, often seen during emergencies. In addition, there are a large number of therapies, particularly protein, gene and vaccine-based medications, that cannot be delivered orally and require intravenous delivery.

The goal of modern needle-free drug delivery techniques is to increase the prescribing and adoption of important drugs that require self-injection, such as biologics.
Continuous innovation and availability of newer needle-free drug delivery systems have the potential to be enabling for highly viscous drug products that cannot be delivered by the traditional needle and syringe, adding to the utility of the technology.
As more companies begin to recognize the benefits, needle-free injection technology will continue to grow in popularity, both among patients and physicians, and ultimately increase adoption of injectable drug therapies.

This report is the first edition of in-depth report to cover the needle-free devices and technologies market, key growth areas, market strategy, product scope and quantitative market projections for technologies and devices. This report includes detailed market size and analysis of needle-free drug delivery devices, including needle-free jet injectors, inhalers, transdermal patch and other novel needle technologies (e.g., microneedles and advanced pen needles). In addition, it includes qualitative and quantitative factors that are driving the global needle-free devices and technologies market. This study attempts to give the reader the information and analysis they need to deal with these challenges.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

During the past several decades, tremendous progress has been made toward the development of safe, effective and convenient means of drug administration. Advances have been possible, at least in part, because of increasing awareness about health concerns associated with traditional needle-based drug delivery devices and
technological innovations to meet the current challenges.

This study, Needle-Free Devices, Technologies and Global Markets, provides an overview of products included in this market and detailed analyses of markets and competitive environments.

This report focuses on some key developments in the field of drug delivery, especially those that deal with the development of painless, patient-friendly alternatives to injections for the delivery of macromolecules. This area covers a wide variety of products that help in safe and effective drug delivery. The study includes information
about significant products, players, issues and trends, and other information affecting the needle-free drug delivery industry.

Our study meets these needs by analyzing global markets for needle-free devices and technologies (see the section “Scope” for a definition of these) in light of the most recently available information. In addition to looking at current and future markets, the study will analyze technological, demographic and economic developments that may have a long-term impact on the size and structure of the needle-free devices and
technologies market. The future of needle-free technology will also be discussed with the market forecasts.

More specific objectives are to:

Identify and segment the needle-free drug delivery market by technology and applications.
Estimate the market for needle-free devices and technologies, excluding the drug sales combined with these devices.
Analyze the type of needle-free drug delivery devices and technologies by geographic markets.
Identify and evaluate the impact of demographic, economic and other factors that will drive future demand for needle-free devices and technologies market.
Forecast the various needle-free technologies that are used for various drug delivery applications.
Identify promising new devices, materials and technologies still in the development and testing stage, and assess the probability that they will be commercialized successfully in the next five years.
Forecast the potential market based on the pipeline, taking into account the estimated probability that they will be commercialized.
Identify leading device manufacturers, technology suppliers and pharmaceutical partners to analyze the structure of the needle-free devices and technologies market within drug delivery industry (e.g., market shares, concentration, and recent merger and acquisition activity)
Assess the long-term outlook for the needle-free drug delivery devices and technologies market, taking into account market opportunities, as well as technological, financial and economic factors.
