Drug Self-Administration Markets to 2020: Drug Products, Indications, Markets and Forecasts

Greystone Research Associates is pleased to announce the publication of a new market study. ‘Drug Self-Administration to 2018: Drug Products, Indications, Markets and Forecasts’ is a comprehensive evaluation and analysis of the technology, products and participants providing the driving force behind this evolving segment of the drug delivery sector. The study is designed to provide drug company decision makers, drug delivery developers, device designers, healthcare marketers, and supply chain participants with a detailed understanding of the economics, technologies, disease segments, and commercial opportunities for prescription drugs packaged and supplied for patient self-administration. Provider organization business managers, healthcare administrators and investors will also benefit from this study.

Product Strategies and the Shift in Patient Care to Self-Administration

A number of factors are converging to create both risk and opportunity for drug makers and their delivery device partners. These include new classes of drugs for previously refractory conditions, growing trend toward self-administration for chronic diseases, shifting patient demographics in industrial countries, caregiver safety legislation, and continued pressure to control healthcare costs. These factors are giving rise to a new generation of sophisticated, application-specific injection, inhalation and transdermal drug products designed to satisfy caregiver and patient preferences while addressing managed care initiatives and the formulation limitations of new classes of therapeutic drugs. Because of their ability to safely and reliably satisfy treatment protocols and compliance goals, non-oral drug delivery products will have a significant impact on the future of drug selfadministration.
