Increasing Cases of Chronic Illnesses Stimulate Implantable Drug-Eluting Devices Market Growth, Says FMI


Implantabledrug-eluting devices are gaining good reputation in addressing chronicillnesses, such as diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Chronicdisorders are leading causes of mortalities in various developed and developingcountries. The situation is becoming graver in tandem with the need fortreatment with nil or minimum side effects. Implantable drug-eluting devices,owing to controlled and target-centric factors, are becoming commonplace inmedical settings.

Complemented by compatibility with specific drug dosing, implantable drug-eluting devices are weeding off the issue of complicated delivery routine and systemic toxicity of traditional drug dosage methods. Innovators are rolling up their sleeves to develop space-age implantable drug-eluting devices, driven advancements in micro and nanotechnology. For instance, Merck & Co. are developing slow-release antiretroviral (ARV) drug implant as a worthwhile solution for treating HIV.

Owingto surging incidents of diabetes and CVDs, market players are eyeing North Americaand Europe for sustainable returns. Encouraged by the benefits of target-specificdrug delivery, FMI estimates the global implantable drug-eluting devices marketto surpass US$ 10 Bn in 2019, and projects the market to progress at apromising CAGR of ~6% over the forecast period (2019-2029).

Passive Implantable Drug-Eluting Devices Leadthe Race

Activeimplantable drug-eluting devices offer greater level of control of drugtargeting as they possess positive driving force to handle the drug targetingfrom the devices. However, active implantable drug-eluting devices areassociated with high degree of complexity which translates increaseddevelopment expenses.

Passiveimplantable drug-eluting devices are garnering significant traction owing to thedrugs enclosed within biocompatible polymer molecules, finds FMI. Further, theyprovide the feature of modifying various aspects, including surface properties,and drug concentration. Non-biodegradable implantable devices are beingexhaustively leveraged for contraceptive delivery. In addition, they exhibithigh structural rigidity and robustness throughout their life span.

On the contrary, non-biodegradable drug-eluting implantable devices result in tissue damage, infections, and cosmetic deformity. Developed to outweigh the setbacks of non-biodegradable implantable devices, the biodegradable version is derived from polymers that undergo degradation into smaller fragments easily, that is eventually eliminated or absorbed by the body. As such, biodegradable implantable drug-eluting devices represent accelerated growth despite the supremacy of their non-biodegradable counterparts.

Analysts at FMI suggest that “Implantabledrug-eluting devices are observing wide acceptance on grounds of cost-efficientsolutions, and innovative drug delivery methods. They ensure minimal sideeffects after delivery while treating chronic illnesses as well as during birthcontrol. Consequently, demand for implantable drug-eluting devices is expectedto grow moderately.”
