Global Advanced Dermatology Drug Delivery Devices Market Definition

Dermatology is the branch of medicine concerned with diagnosing, treating, and preventing diseases of the hair, nails, skin, oral cavity, and genitals. It is a specialty in both surgical and medical aspects. A dermatologist is a specialist medical doctor who manages hair, nails, skin, and some cosmetic problems.

Drug delivery devices are specialized medical devices that focus on delivering therapeutic agents at the target sites. These can be either disposable or reusable and are made from various materials such as glass, plastic, and polymers.

Advanced dermatology drug devices are a specialized class of drug delivery devices focused on delivering various drugs, vaccines, and therapeutic agents to the target sites through the skin.

Covid-19 Impact on Global Advanced Dermatology Drug Delivery Devices Market

Dermatology practices were impacted during the initial days of the COVID-19 pandemic during the complete lockdown. The impact of COVID-19 also varied depending on the region, country, the extent of lockdowns, and the local population's perception. However, the adoption of advanced dermatology drug delivery devices has been accelerated in the post-COVID-19 pandemic as there increase in demand for connected devices. The trend of digitalizing healthcare has also impacted the development of some of the devices. Several key changes during the pandemic have played a key role in transforming the way consumers receive care. Additionally, the supply side has also been influenced by the changes. The following figure lists the key changes expected to influence the global advanced dermatology drug delivery market.

Overall, the impact of COVID-19 on the market size has been low-moderate. Some of the market players have reported a slight decline in sales. However, financials are already on their way to recovery. The decline in revenues was mostly a result of the initial phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, which comprised complete lockdowns across countries and major cities, thus interrupting the supply chain. The impact timeline spanned the end of the first quarter and the second quarter of 2020 for most of the global key markets. However, the pandemic has played a key role in enhancing the growth prospects of connected dermatology drug delivery devices and is expected to aid in improving the market growth outlook indirectly.

Global Advanced Dermatology Drug Delivery Devices Market Dynamics

DriversNovel Technologies in Drug Delivery

Technological developments in the healthcare industry are driven by patient and provider demand. In the case of drug delivery, technological advancements are being increasingly driven by the growing focus on patient convenience. Manufacturers have been focused on technologies that ensure safety, reduce pain, and can be used for a wider range of drug formulations and preferences. Much of the developments that have taken place during 2017-2020 indicate a strong focus on needle-less delivery among many new entrants. The concept of needle-less drug delivery appears to be a strong, unique selling point for future market entrants.

RestraintsStringent Regulations and Concerns Around Data Privacy

The ongoing digital revolution is expected to provide growth opportunities for several software developers. The concept of connected healthcare is revolutionary. However, it adds to data privacy concerns. Similar to connected devices, networked medical devices are prone to security breaches. Most of the new products launched in the market aim to improve existing products and features, which translates to a high rate of innovation. Thus, the regulations which guide data privacy in healthcare are also in the process of constant evolution. Standard guidelines and regulations must be implemented to ensure data privacy, especially as new connected devices continue to be developed and introduced in the market. Upgradation of security protocols is also a critical step for connecting advanced dermatology drug delivery devices in data privacy.

OpportunitiesDeveloping Low-Cost Devices to Improve Sales in Price-Sensitive Markets

Manufacturers, especially new entrants, in the global advanced dermatology drug delivery devices market need to carefully consider their pricing strategies to expand business in emerging markets. Existing manufacturers understand the importance of setting price points in an increasingly price-sensitive market, especially for over-the-counter products such as pen injectors. The development of connected drug delivery in a value-based care model requires new market players to face pricing pressure due to increasing competition. Therefore, the challenge is to develop connected devices focused on patient convenience and sell them at attractive prices. Ypsomed AG is a company that has a strong portfolio of pen injectors. Its product YpsoPen is a variable dose insulin pen. The product has attractive pricing, specifically keeping the increasing price sensitivity in the market.
