BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new report, PULMONARY DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS: TECHNOLOGIES AND GLOBAL MARKETS, the global market for pulmonary drug delivery systems is expected to grow to $43.9 billion by 2018 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% from 2013 to 2018. The dry powder inhalers category is the fastest moving segment in this market, growing at a significant five-year CAGR of 12.5%.
The recent trends in the formulating sector show increased sales of dry powder inhalers (DPIs). It currently represents 25% and is progressing to the frontline at a steady rate. Its global market is estimated to outgrow the previously held dominant segment of metered dose inhalers (MDIs) by 2018. The U.S.A. and Europe together are currently the forerunners in the pulmonary inhalables segment.
Rising cases of respiratory disorders, new innovations in pharmaceutical formulations and combinations, emergence of better sophisticated inhaler device designs and consumer desire for noninvasive methods have led to the growth of drug delivery systems in the last few years.
“Pulmonary drug delivery technologies are focused on developing simple, easy-to-use and cost-effective devices,” says BCC Research analyst, Usha Nagavarapu. “The global market for dry powder inhalers is expected to rise between 2013 through 2018 due to better device engineering and powder formulations.”
PULMONARY DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS: TECHNOLOGIES AND GLOBAL MARKETS provides an overview of the present and future global market trends for pulmonary drug delivery systems with data from 2012 and 2013, and CAGRs projections through 2018.
