Market- Overview

The global connected drug delivery devices market size was valued US$ XX million in 2020 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2021-2028).     

Smart wireless electronic systems used to facilitate patient observation and counseling in home settings are connected drug delivery devices. They come with dose reminders, adherence trackers, sensors, and monitoring tools, as well as education and feedback systems for tailored patient care. They are more convenient and cost less than clinic-based treatment. As a result, remote monitoring of patients with asthma, diabetes, hepatitis C, hypertension, TB, multiple sclerosis, clinically isolated syndrome, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and liver and renal transplant recipients is commonplace.

Market Dynamics

The rapid adoption of internet of things (IoT) technology in the healthcare sector allows for real-time patient analysis and monitoring, ensuring appropriate treatment. The market is projected to be strengthened as customers become more aware of self-administered and connected drug therapy benefits.

Rising awareness regarding self-administered therapy will spur the connected drug delivery devices market expansion

The number of connected drug delivery devices is increasing astounding, owing to increased awareness of self-administered therapy. The introduction of new technology has resulted in increased connectivity and medication accuracy. These devices increased patient compliance and improved health care. Elcam's FlexiQ eMU-P connected autoinjector, for example, is a self-administration device for home use. The device is simple to use, and it protects the patient from needle stick injuries both before and after use. FlexiQ eMU-P verifies dosage and allows physicians to monitor adherence remotely. The market has grown enormously due to technological advancement and device connectivity. Furthermore, increased remote patient monitoring, significant R&D in medical drug delivery systems, and widespread acceptance of these devices will all help the sector thrive.

One of the key issues driving demand for connected drug delivery systems is the fast-rising cost of medical management and the growing desire to improve patient treatment results. A shift in consumer preferences toward home-based care also boosts the market growth. Furthermore, the increased number of people suffering from chronic diseases and a growing emphasis on preventive treatment favorably impact the industry. Also, the industry is being driven by the increased use of linked devices in laboratories and hospitals to keep electronic health records (EHR). Aside from that, several companies are developing gadgets that can link to apps and programs, transfer data, automate tracking, and improve patient safety. Biopharma companies increasingly use connected medication delivery devices to determine adherence improvement outcomes for regulators, payers, and patients since they enable access to real-time patient data.This contributes to the growth of the global connected drug delivery devices market.

Security concerns regarding patient data is likely to hamper the market growth

Concerns about patient data security may hamper the industry's growth. A breach in data security could result in massive losses of confidential information such as medical records, insurance IDs containing social security and bank information, medical details, and location. This may harm the manufacturer's reputation. Cybersecurity threats could endanger hospitals, patients, and third-party service providers. Such serious and critical threats associated with connected drug delivery device solutions may have a negative impact on market revenue over the forecast timeframe.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

According to medical device manufacturers, the sale of connected drug delivery devices fell slightly during the COVID-19 pandemic. The sales drop could be attributed to global distribution and sales channel disruption. During the pandemic, people were subjected to restrictions, which reduced the rate of disease diagnosis and screening. In addition, the pharmaceutical industry's R&D was hampered by the failure of the clinical trial on connected drug delivery devices. However, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the need for user-friendly and safe homecare solutions became acute. The requirement for online connectivity devices allows a healthcare professional to monitor a patient's medication remotely.As a result of these factors, the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was mitigated, and the market continued to grow steadily.

Segment Analysis

The injectable devices reaction segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2028)     

The injectable devices, inhalation devices & others market category is divided into two types. The injectable device segment is expected to take up the largest share of the market. Certain variables, such as the multiple advantages offered by smart injectable devices over traditional injectable devices and the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cancer, brain disorders, diabetes, and others, are driving the injectable devices segment forward.Furthermore, the growing diabetic population, rising diabetes-related healthcare expenditures, and increasing product launches for diabetes treatment would boost connected drug delivery device revenue. According to the World Health Organization, diabetes affects more than 422 million people worldwide, resulting in 1.6 million deaths per year. Genetic reasons, acceptance of unhealthy lifestyles, unsanitary eating habits, and other causes are all blamed for the high incidence rate.

Furthermore, throughout the projection period, the injectable devices segment is expected to rise significantly due to the efforts of several drug makers to develop smart injectable devices.For instance Nemera launched Safe'n'Spray device. Safe'n'Spray is an integrated device that monitors drug delivery and prevents overdosing by using a reusable electronic locking mechanism and fingerprint identification. Safe'n'Spray is designed to meet the special needs of regulating the amounts given to patients over a set period of time in order to avoid overdosing.
