Transdermal Skin Patches Market

Transdermal Skin Patches Market Propelled by expanded Therapeutic Applications

Transdermal skin patches are medicated adhesive patches that are placed on the skin to deliver a particular dose of medication through the skin and into the bloodstream. They provide several advantages over oral and injectable drug forms, including controlled drug release, non-invasiveness, painlessness and ease of use. With growing preference for painless drug delivery and increasing applications to treat conditions like motion sickness, hypertension and symptoms of menopause, the demand for transdermal skin patches is set to rise substantially.

The global Transdermal Skin Patches Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 9773.27 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 23% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

One of the major trends fueling the transdermal skin patches market growth is their expanded therapeutic applications. Traditionally used to deliver pain and nicotine medications, transdermal patches are now being explored for delivery of drugs that treat chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, hormone therapy and neurodegenerative disorders. Scientists are developing sophisticated patch designs that can deliver both small and large drug molecules for extended periods. With ongoing research focusing on novel drugs and delivery mechanisms, transdermal patches are poised to become a preferred administration route for a wide range of therapeutic areas going forward.
