Delivery Type Insights
Based on delivery type, the oral segment dominated the global drug and gene delivery devices market in 2020, in terms of revenue and is estimated to sustain its dominance during the forecast period. The oral drug delivery is the most convenient and most popular route of administration all over the globe. It is economical, pain-free, and self-administered type of delivery where no sterile precautions are involved. Moreover, the development of various therapeutics that can identify the affected cell and can treat that cell without harming the normal cells is exponentially boosting the growth of this segment. Therefore, the rapid growth of the biosimilar, targeted therapeutics, and gene therapies had positively impacted the market growth in the past few years.
On the other hand, the injectable is estimated to be the most opportunistic segment during the forecast period. The technological advancements in the injectable devices has propelled the adoption of the self-injectable devices among the patients. The rising number of diabetic population is fostering the growth of this segment as the diabetic patient need to regularly inject insulin. The increasing popularity of the self-injectors, needle-free injectors, pen-injectors, and auto-injectors has allowed the patients to conveniently administer drugs from the convenience of their home, eliminating the medical assistance. All these factors are estimated to have a significant impact on the drug and gene delivery devices market and will foster the demand for the injectable segment in the forthcoming years.
Based on method, the in situ segment accounted largest revenue share in 2020 and is projected to remain its dominance during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the certain advantages associated with the in situ method such as low complication in fabrication and ease of drug administration. Moreover, the majority of the drugs that are currently used follows the in situ method.
Based on vector, the viral vector segment accounted largest revenue share in 2020. Most of the clinical trials that are based on the gene therapies are dependent on the viral vectors for transfection. The rising prevalence of the genetic diseases is the major factors that boosts the growth of this segment. The extensive usage of viral vectors in the treatment of various chronic diseases has fueled the segment’s growth in the past few years.
On the other hand, the non-viral vector segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment. This can be attributed to the increasing number of clinical trials related to cardiovascular diseases that uses non-viral vectors as the gene transfer mode. The rising number of cardiovascular diseases among the global population is expected to foster the growth of this segment. According to the World Health Organization, around 17.9 million deaths were directly linked with the cardiovascular diseases in 2019, globally. This was around 32% of the global deaths in 2019.
Based on region, North America dominated the global drug and gene delivery devices market in 2020, in terms of revenue and is estimated to sustain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributed to the increased number of people suffering from various chronic diseases. According to a study, around 60% of the US population is suffering from at least one chronic diseases. Moreover, the development of various therapeutics and innovative drugs that can effectively treat chronic diseases and genetic diseases is fueling the demand for the drug and gene delivery devices market. Moreover, the rising popularity of personalized medicines may impact the market positively in the forthcoming years.
Asia Pacific is estimated to be the most opportunistic market during the forecast period. This is attributed to the rising prevalence of various chronic and infectious diseases, rapidly growing biopharmaceutical industry, presence of huge population, and rising prevalence of diseases caused by pollution owing to the rapid industrialization and urbanization.
