Transdermal drug delivery systems (TDDSs: gels, patches, films, etc.) are placed on the skin and allow specific drug substances to penetrate into the bloodstream through the layers of the skin. TDDSs have many benefits compared to other methods of drug delivery (oral, injectable, etc.) TDDSs mitigate the hepatic first pass effect of drugs, offering safety and a better quality of life to the patient. TDDSs are used to treat a wide variety of conditions and diseases, including pain, CNS disorders, hormone imbalance, prevention of nausea and vomiting, cardiovascular diseases (CVD), overactive bladder and several others. Most TDDSs are available in the form of patches.

Transdermal drug delivery (TDD) is still a relatively niche segment, currently accounting for a small market share in the overall drug delivery market. However, given the many advantages (ease of use, better patient compliance, improved bioavailability and fewer adverse effects, etc.) over other drug delivery options (oral and injections) TDD has gained increasing attention over the last decade. TDDSs hold huge potential to address the needs of an increasing global elder population, especially in caregiver-intensive conditions and for patients with chronic conditions. Opportunity exists to translate drug needs into a dosage form that is more end-user (patient) and caregiver friendly. Regarding the patent cliff, TDD could make pharmaceutical companies more competitive. For example, a pharmaceutical company that focuses on life cycle management and TDD as a parallel path during development could be in a better position to extend the life of a drug and to strategically introduce a variety of formulations that drive patient preference.

The global TDD market is estimated to have been worth nearly $REDACTED in 2020.Between 2021 and 2026, the market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of REDACTED%, leading to a market value of $REDACTED in 2026.

The advent of innovative, new approaches and continuous technology development is the key factor driving growth in the market. The growing number of elder patients and the increasing demand for convenient drug delivery options with easy self-administration are also facilitating market growth.

TDD biologics (e.g., peptides, proteins, nucleic acids) and the use of new drug delivery devices such as microneedle systems for transdermal drug delivery, have high growth potential and are likely to have more activity in coming years. The opportunity areas in this market include TDD of large molecules underpinned by a large (multibillion) biologics market, wherein demand for advanced drug delivery systems is increasing.
