Outlook on the Microneedles for Drug Delivery Patent Landscape Global Industry - Featuring Altea, Becton Dickinson and Fujifilm Among Others - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Microneedles for Drug Delivery Patent Landscape" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global drug delivery market has been observed to be as large as USD 440.5 billion in 2018.

Hypodermic needles are known to be very efficient and they have been used immensely in the delivery of biological macromolecules, insulin, vaccines, etc. However, their invasive nature, stability issues, and non-compliance have always been the issues of concern and led to the requirement of highly skilled medical practitioners for administration.

In this context, microneedles have shown immense potential, since they can easily, painlessly and safely deliver drugs without special storage infrastructure. Hence, they can be self-administered by anybody, thereby eliminating the need for a clinic visit and the assistance of skilled medical practitioners. This serves as an important advantage, especially in the emerging markets. Moreover, microneedles do not create sharp waste, thereby eliminating the problem of discarding needles and hazardous risks. Patients suffering from needle phobia can easily use microneedles. Indeed, according to a study published in Behavioral Neurology, 2014, around 3-4% of the world population faces needle phobia.

Microneedles for drug delivery are attracting interest from big companies and start-ups alike and show immense potential that could transform the global transdermal market. Furthermore, in the actual race to find a COVID-19 vaccine, numerous companies (e.g. Kindeva (3M), Debiotech, Verndari, NanoPass, Bioserentach, Sorrento Therapeutics, Merck, etc.) have developed or shared their microneedle delivery system and promising results have already been released. Other fields, like cosmetic, ophthalmic and diabetes showed important technological progress in the past few years that could disrupt the existing market and replace the current standard drug delivery system.

In this evolving context, it is crucial to understand the intellectual property position and strategy of these different players. Such knowledge can help detect business risks and opportunities, anticipate emerging technologies, and enable strategic decisions to strengthen one's market position.
