Market Drivers

The growing interest in using nanoparticles for therapeutic purposes is attributed to their ability to enhance drug bioavailability, protect from physiological barriers and encapsulate multiple drugs in order to target more than one disease indication. In addition to this, presence of nanoparticles in vaccines also contributes to their overall immunomodulatory properties, making them a suitable candidate in the formulation of vaccines. Thus, nanoparticles have emerged as a promising and advanced tool that can be used as a contrasting agent in medical imaging, a vehicle to cross the blood-brain barrier and a carrier for targeted delivery of genes / drugs, proteins, vaccines and antibiotics. The ongoing advancements in nanoparticle technology have paved way for the reliability on the stakeholders working in nanoparticle formulation domain.

Market Restraints

Despite the several advantages of nanoparticles in drug delivery, the complex interplay between nanoparticle properties and biological systems requires careful consideration to ensure safety and efficacy of these nanoscale materials. Moreover, the consistency of the constructs and reproducibility post scale-up are another set of challenges associated with the fabrication of nanoparticles. Moreover, the development and formulation of nanoparticles require significant expertise and resources for different techniques, such as supercritical fluid-based method, microfluidization and precipitation method. The potential toxicity of nanoparticles to human health and the environment is another concern during development, which require comprehensive  safety assessment. Furthermore, the stringent regulatory policies associated with the development of nanoparticle-based therapeutics pose a challenge for researchers and companies to ascertain its safe and effective use.

Growth Factors

The increasing popularity of nanoparticle-based drugs has led to an increased collaboration activity of drug developers, in order to outsource the development and formulation operations to an experienced partner. This allows companies to leverage a broader range of specialized expertise, cutting-edge equipment and facilities, and cost-effective solutions. Further, outsourcing to players having expertise allows the companies to establish good manufacturing process (GMP) conditions for nanoparticle development. By leveraging the multifaceted expertise in the field, contract service providers can help streamline the nanoparticle development process, reduce costs and accelerate the translation of promising nanoparticles from lab scale to clinical scale. This will eventually aid the drug developers to address the challenges in effective delivery of various therapeutics and improve the clinical outcome through the incorporation of nanoparticle-based drugs.
