Global High Volume Subcutaneous Drug Delivery Market 2016-2020 – Economic, Technology, and Regulatory Factors – Research and Markets

The trend favoring biological drugs as a percent of all drugs continues to accelerate. Most are injectables and many require volumes that exceed 1 ml per dose, the de facto limit for comfortable and safe patient self-administration. As result, the majority of biologicals are supplied for delivery via infusion.

The demographics of patient populations and the current trend in therapeutic drug development are converging to create an increasingly steep demand curve for infusion. The costs and logistics of this convergence are a major driver of the efforts to develop and commercialize high volume drug delivery products that can be administered subcutaneously. It is expected that the number of therapeutic drugs in this class will grow significantly by the end of the decade, creating significant opportunities for high volume subcutaneous drug delivery products.
