Market Dynamics

The rising technological development for transdermal patches can be attributed as a vital factor for the market growth. Transdermal patches are a blessing to patients suffering from hepatic disorders. Transdermal patches are designed to cater to prolonged and controlled certain drugs beneficial to pain relief drugs, hormone products, and nicotine. Transdermal patches activate a patch by the patient’s body and begin to release the medication via the skin to the bloodstream. The demand for such transdermal patches acts as a blessing in the medical industry thus fuelling the global market during the forecast period.

However, the inability of the skin to engross a huge range of medications and the development of contact dermatitis is the prime reason hindering the market growth. Only a limited number of drugs are appropriate to administer through transdermal patches. In addition, some patients suffer skin irritation at the place of application of the transdermal skin patch which also limits the market growth. However, numerous clinical trials for different types of drugs are still going and are expected for a positive impact on the global transdermal patches market in the forecast period.
