Patent expiry of major blockbuster drugs is a prime concern for pharmaceutical companies, as developing a new chemical entity (NCE) is more expensive and time consuming than a novel drug delivery technology. Therefore, in recent years, several pharmaceutical companies have employed drug delivery technology as a life cycle management tool for some of their blockbuster drugs, the patents for which are set to expire in the near future.

The North American drug delivery market was estimated to be worth $66.7 billion in 2012, and is expected to register a CAGR of 8.9% between 2012 and 2017. Based on the route of administration, the drug delivery market has been classified as oral, pulmonary, injectable, transdermal, implantable, ocular, nasal, transmucosal, and topical. In 2012, oral drug delivery segment dominated the market with a share of approximately 38%, followed by pulmonary drug delivery segment with a 20% share.

The drug delivery technologies that have recently gained importance in the North American market include orodispersible tablet (ODT), dry powder inhalers, transdermal patches, needle-free injectors, auto and pen injectors, and buccal transmucosal tablets; controlled release is the most widely accepted technology. The use of implantable devices for drug delivery is also on a rise.

Big pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer and Merck have established in-house capabilities for the development of drug delivery technologies. On the contrary, many other companies are still relying on specialty companies engaged in the development of drug delivery technologies. High level of competition and increasing need for outsourcing has resulted in the drug delivery market to be fragmented, with several small companies developing novel drug delivery technologies for niche therapeutic applications.

The North American drug delivery market is largely dominated by the U.S. (accounting for about 89% of the overall market). The key drivers for the U.S. drug delivery market are the well established pharmaceutical industry , healthcare reforms, and favourable changes in the FDA review process. Factors such as low cost drug manufacturing and rising number of drug delivery formulations and devices are propelling the Canadian market.

Key players in the drug delivery technologies market are 3M Company (U.S.), Aptalis Pharma, Inc. (U.S.), Baxter International, Inc. (U.S.), Becton, Dickinson & Co. (U.S.), Catalent Pharma Solutions (U.S.), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Endo Pharmaceuticals (U.S.), Johnson & Johnson (U.S.), Nektar Therapeutics (U.S.) and Valeant Pharmaceuticals (Canada).

The North American Drug Delivery Technologies Market report (2012-2017) covers the market for technologies used for development of products, formulations, and devices used in drug delivery. The overall market is segmented based on the oral, pulmonary, trandermal, injectable, ocular, nasal, topical, implantable, and transmucosal routes of administration used by these technologies. Oral drug delivery technologies accounted for the largest share - 38% - of the North American market in 2012, under which controlled release and orodispersible tablet technologies and other technologies such as effervescent tablets and chewable tablets are covered.

Pulmonary segment covers metered dose inhalers, dry-powder inhalers and nebulizers; this segment is growing at the highest CAGR of 11.8%.  The transdermal technology market is divided into two types, namely, passive drug delivery and active drug delivery. Passive delivery is further categorized into reservoir system and matrix system, while active delivery is further categorized into iontophoresis, microporation and other technologies such as electroporation, sonophoresis and dermal ablation. Injectable technology market is classified as conventional injection, self injection, and other injection devices. Conventional devices include fillable syringes and prefilled syringes, whereas self injection devices include needle free injectors, auto-injectors, and pen injectors.

Ocular drug delivery technologies market is divided into eye drops, ophthalmic ointments, gels and other formulations like ocular inserts and punctal plugs. Based on the type of formulation, nasal drug delivery technologies market is categorized into nasal drops, sprays, and inhalers. Based on formulation type, topical drug delivery technologies market is segmented into liquid, semisolid, and solid formulations.
