Patch Pump Drug Delivery Systems to 2018: Devices, Markets, Players and Prospects

Greystone Research Associates is pleased to announce the publication of a new market study. Patch Pump Drug Delivery Systems: Devices, Markets, Players, and Prospects is a comprehensive evaluation and analysis of the technology, products and participants providing the driving force behind this evolving segment of the healthcare 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 products, markets and commercial opportunities for patch pump devices that simplify the delivery of drugs that are not suitable for oral administration. Provider organization business managers, healthcare administrators and investors will also benefit from this study.

The Potential for Small Form Factor Wearable Active Drug Delivery Devices Patch pumps are the convergence of several technologies into a single drug delivery device package. In doing so, this class of devices overcomes a number of shortcomings and limitations, while simplifying the drug administration event at the patient interface. The current generation of patch pumps focuses on insulin delivery, but a number of devices have been designed and are being developed to be - within the limits of drug pharmacology - essentially API agnostic. This report analyzes important therapeutic segments and examines key regulatory, economic and competitive factors that represent potential barriers to commercial success.
