The large volume wearable injectors market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 40%, claims Roots Analysis

Published: August 2019

The shift to self-administration of medication, coupled to the need to improve therapy adherence, have driven device developers to design versatile drug delivery devices capable of minimizing dosing-related errors and preventing needlestick injuries

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of Wearable Injectors Market report to its list of offerings. 

Over time, both drug developers and medical device manufacturers, have entered into strategic alliances to combine their respective expertise and develop appropriate drug-device combination products. Presently, multiple such combinations, facilitating easy delivery of both insulin and non-insulin drugs, in large volumes, are either already available in the market or under development.

Key Market Insights 

Close to 50 large volume wearable injectors are available / under development 
Around 17% of such devices have been designed to hold 10-15 ml of drug formulation, while 23% claim to have the capacity to hold more than 15 ml. Concerning type of dosing, 40% of these devices are developed / being developed for bolus dosing, and 40% for continuous dosing, the remaining (20%) devices are capable of facilitating both types of doses. 

At present, there are 80+ biologics / small molecules that are most likely to be developed as drug-device combination products 
The report provides insights on over 600+ marketed drugs / therapies and pipeline candidates, assessing the likelihood of whether they may be developed in combination with large volume wearable injectors or not. The analysis takes into consideration stage of development, dosage, dose concentration, route of administration, type of dose and drug sales (in case of marketed drugs).

Close to 2,000 patents pertaining to large volume wearable injectors have been filed / granted till 2018
Most of the intellectual property documents in this field were observed to be associated with personal health monitoring systems, electronic patient care, needle retraction systems and smartphone-based drug delivery systems and solutions.  

Outsourcing has emerged as a popular strategy for manufacturing device-related components
The development process of high-volume drug injection devices is complex, characterized by the need for multiple components (electrical and mechanical modules) and multidisciplinary technical experience. It is worth highlighting that close to 50% of the total number of CMOs involved in providing services for such injectors, are based in North America. 

Several clinical trials, evaluating drug-device combinations, were initiated between 2016 and 2018
Close to 60% of such trials are presently in the early (Phase I and Phase II) stages. The report features an in-depth analysis of clinical research initiatives in this field based on relevant parameters, such as trial registration year, current trial status, phase of development, and study design.

North America and Europe are anticipated to capture over 60% of the overall market share by 2030
Presently, only patch injectors are available in the market, therefore, they are the sole contributors to the current market size. However, by 2030, 19% of the overall market share is expected to be captured by infusion pumps.
