Inhalation based drug products are typically water based solutions or suspensions of drug containing additional excipients. However, introduction of dry powder inhalers eliminated the chances of degradation of therapeutically active ingredient in the solution form. Inhalation based dosage forms are intended for direct delivery of medicament to lungs to produce local or systematic effects.
Inhalation spray-based systems consist of drug formulation (solution, suspension or dry powder) and container-closure system, which do not contain any propellant. Majority of the companies operating in inhalation drug devices market are adopting a strategy to launch nasal delivery devices for their drugs as drug delivery devices are the way forward to extend the life cycle of the product.
Thus, the market for inhalation based-drugs is continuously expanding as companies are racing to develop co-packed inhalation devices for their nasal spray-based drugs. However, the producers has to face challenges due to increasing rigidity of number of regulatory requirements from regulatory authorities.
Constantly evolving technologies such as inhalers with GPS radios, CareTRx technology with smart inhaler cap which allow users to crowd source data for having asthma attacks. is further expected to drive the global market for inhalation spray-based drugs market over the forecast period.
The global market for inhalation spray-based drugs is expected to be driven by increasing incidence of respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD, need for improved drug delivery mechanisms for quick action, increasing incidence of asthma in children. Majority of the inhalation and nasal spray based drugs are generic formulation which are cost-effective and thus preferred by both prescriber as well as patients.
Moreover, ease of administration, quick onset of action, adoption by geriatric population and children. are some other factors fueling the growth of global inhalation spray-based drugs market over the forecast period.
However, stringent regulations for inhalation spray-based drugs and competition between producers is are some of the factors hindering the growth of global inhalation spray-based drugs market.
