Growth Factors

Buccal drug delivery systems have gained significant momentum since the last decade. Elimination of first-pass metabolism, quick absorption of the pH-sensitive drug, no interaction with stomach acid, quicker onset of action than any oral dose, minimal side effects, and reduced drug degradation are some of the factors fueling the market growth. Buccal drug delivery has gained large acceptance among geriatric patients and patients having difficulty swallowing.

Buccal drug delivery systems have gained significant growth potential due to constant research and development in this field. Compared to oral dosage form, buccal delivery is considered the most convenient and preferred choice, especially among geriatricpatients. This drug delivery route ensures elimination of first pass metabolism, allowing drugs thatarepH sensitive and easily degraded to be administered effectively. 

By Type Analysis

The buccal tablets and lozenges segment captured the largest share of over 45.0% in 2020. Increased consumer acceptance, ease of formulation, cost-effectiveness, and wide availability of drug candidates for formulation are the factors responsible for the segment growth.

The sublingual films segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Factors such as immediate availability of high concentration of drug at a target site and increased research to develop controlled release formulation are responsible for the high growth of the segment. 

By End-user Analysis

The hospitals segment dominated the market with a share of over 40.0% in 2020. Increased admission in hospitals, especially of geriatric patients, the abundance of emergency care supplies, and product development and research by various community hospitals are the reasons behind this segment growth.

3 community hospitals in Japan conducted in vitro and in vivo studies to develop mucoadhesive microparticle-laden gels for oral mucositis. The result confirmed the high concentration of the drug at the target site and quicker treatment than traditional dosage forms are likely to improve the adoption. 

By Application Analysis

The smoking cessation segment accounted for the largest share of over 31.0% in 2020. Buccal drug delivery is often the most preferred and effective formulation for treating patients with smoking or nicotine addiction.

Increased research to treat sudden cardiac arrest outside hospitals and growing adoption of immediate treatment options have improved the acceptance of sublingual tablets, films, or even injections. This is responsible for the highest growth rate of the angina pectoris segment. 

By Regional Analysis

North America dominated the market with a revenue share of over 31.0% in 2020. The presence of a large number of market players, improved research to identify suitable drug candidates, significant investment by large players to improve the development of newer formulations, and improved rate of diagnosis and treatment are the factors boosting the regional market growth. 

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. A rise in the geriatric population, the growth of the pharmaceutical industry, and an enormous rise in domestic players are likely to boost the regional market growth.
