What is the Global Drug-Device Combination Products Market?

Drug delivery systems play a crucial role in various medical treatments. Among them, drug-device combination products consist of pharmaceutical substances combined with medical devices designed to efficiently deliver the drug to the specific location within the patient’s body. Examples of these products include prefilled medication delivery systems like metered dose inhalers, insulin injector pens, and syringes, as well as surgical trays containing drapes and anesthetic swabs. Additionally, you’ll find innovative combinations like monoclonal antibodies paired with therapeutic drugs, pacing leads featuring steroid-coated tips, catheters with antimicrobial coatings, and first-aid kits stocked with bandages and gauze.

In accordance with Article 117 of the Medical Equipment Regulation, manufacturers are obligated to obtain a Notified Body Opinion (NBOP) before releasing drug-device combination products as integral devices, marketing them as “medicinal products.” The Notified Body carefully assesses compliance with the relevant General Performance and Safety Standards (GSPR) and provides the manufacturer with an NBOP Report to be included in the Marketing Authorization Application (MAA).

As the prevalence of chronic diseases continues to rise, and technology continually advances, the market for drug-device combinations is expanding. Nevertheless, this growth may face challenges and limitations due to regulatory constraints. While collaborations among major market players offer opportunities for innovation, the stringent regulatory environment poses a potential barrier to the global expansion of the drug-device combination market.

Global Drug-Device Combination Products Market Outlook

The increasing prevalence of chronic illnesses and the desire for innovative approaches to disease treatment are key factors driving the adoption of medical device combination products worldwide. These products offer numerous benefits for patients suffering from conditions such as spinal cord injuries, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, cancer, cerebral palsy, and anemia. Some of these benefits include reduced side effects, regulated medication delivery, improved patient compliance, and focused drug delivery.

Inhalers, autoinjectors, pre-filled pens, pre-filled nebulizers, pre-filled syringes, and transdermal patches are among the products that have seen increased usage due to their associated advantages, such as decreased pain levels, shorter hospital stays, improved patient outcomes, and overall healthcare cost-effectiveness. Additional benefits include improved tolerance levels, simpler dosage regimens, and enhanced symptomatic and pharmacokinetic profiles. Additionally, these products have synergistic effects that allow for multi-target treatment, which should drive market growth.

Industry participants are also combining technology to monitor and track medicinal device combination products, as well as launching high-end products that use sophisticated active ingredients, formulations, delivery methods, and dosage forms like liposomes and transdermal & peptides. They are also focusing on developing new classes of biologics and next-generation products with high viscosity to help patients better adhere to their therapy. As a result, demand for these products is expected to increase.

Furthermore, expanding healthcare infrastructure and improvements in drug delivery technologies are expected to support market expansion. However, strict regulatory guidelines, product recalls, and issues related to certain drug-device combinations may hamper industry growth.

Segment Analysis:

The market for drug-device combinations worldwide is categorized by product types including auto-injectors, microneedle patches, digital pills, smart inhalers, drug delivery hydrogels, and other similar items. The leading product in this market is expected to be the auto-injector in 2022 due to the increase in demand for medical devices to treat patients worldwide.

The global market for drug-device combinations is further divided into various applications such as orthopedic disorders, respiratory diseases, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and other illnesses. The orthopedic segment is predicted to dominate the worldwide drug-device combination market in 2022 as there is a growing elderly population and an increasing requirement for orthopedic medical equipment to treat patients with bone ailments worldwide.

The market for drug-device combinations is segmented by end-users, including hospitals, home care settings, clinics, ambulatory care centers, and others. In 2022, clinics are expected to rule the global market for drug-device combinations as they have access to specialist doctors in developing nations who can diagnose illnesses and recommend effective, prolonged treatments.

Geographical Analysis

Based on geography Drug-Device combination products market has been segmented into five main regions namely North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa.

North America is predicted to have a significant market share due to the adoption of drug-device combinations and the strong healthcare infrastructure in the area. This is because well-known companies conduct considerable new product development operations in the region. The clinical urgency to use these products to treat chronic diseases is one of the main potential growth factors. This urgency is expected to contribute to the expansion of the North American market.

The United States is expected to account for a large portion of the global market for drug-device combination products due to the rising geriatric population. For example, Breyna, the first approved generic counterpart of AstraZeneca’s Symbicort, was granted FDA clearance in March 2022 after Viatris Inc. submitted its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA). Breyna, a drug-device combination treatment recommended for individuals with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), is expected to fuel market expansion in the US because of the increased use of such devices for controlled medication delivery.

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at a profitable pace over the forecast period. This growth is linked to rising healthcare costs and increasing physician awareness of the benefits of drug-device combination products, including low dosage requirements, timed medication release, direct device-centered infection mitigation using anti-infective medicine in combined effect, and lower systemic exposure. The two primary market drivers are high R&D expenditures by key competitors in the global market and an increase in the commercialization of these systems.
