Global Implantable Drug Delivery Devices Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Company Analysis and Forecast 2019-2026

The global implantable drug delivery devices market size is expected to reach USD 31.8 billion by 2026 registering at a 7.5% CAGR during the forecast period 2019 to 2026. Growing incidence of chronic diseases, coupled with rising demand for minimally invasive treatment options, is driving the market for implantable drug delivery devices.

Implantable drug delivery devices are the medical devices, which enable site specific drug administration. It also helps in minimizing the doses of drug in order to reduce potential side effects. These devices facilitate sustained release of a therapeutic agent. These implantable devices are gaining edge over conventional oral or parenteral dosage forms due to site specific and sustained release therapeutic action of implantable devices, which further minimize the side-effects associated with the drug.

The major factors driving the growth of this market are growing incidences of target disease such as diabetic retinopathy, prostate cancer, cardiovascular diseases and chroni diseases. Rising cases of unwanted pregnancies and growing aging population also supplement the growth of this market. However, cost associated with the use of these devices has restricted the market growth.
