Dublin, Nov. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "On-body Drug Delivery Devices - Intellectual Property Landscape: Focus on Popular/Relevant Prior Art Search Expressions, Patent Valuation, Pockets of Innovation/White Spaces, and Key Applicant Profiles" report has been added to's offering.

The "On-body Drug Delivery Devices - Intellectual Property Landscape" report features an extensive study of the historical and current collection of granted patents, patent applications and affiliated documents associated with modern wearable/implantable therapy administration solutions.

The advantages of on-body drug delivery devices are numerous; consequently, the demand for such devices is also high and growing, which is projected to grow to a USD 600 million market by 2030.

Within such a lucrative and rapidly evolving market it is imperative for innovators and other stakeholders (including interested investors) to regularly track the growing intellectual capital.

In this context, we have analyzed the intellectual property landscape related to on-body (wearable and implantable) drug delivery solutions, and developed independent opinions on both historical and recent trends, and other key attributes of the innovation in this upcoming field of medical technology.


Chronic diseases, such as diabetes, arthritis, hypertension and cancer, are considered among the leading causes of death, worldwide.

In fact, a recent study revealed that the global failure to control the steady rise in preventable risk factors associated with the aforementioned conditions rendered populations vulnerable to COVID-19. Although there are several national and global-level initiatives focused on educating the masses on prevention and promote healthy living, individuals living with a chronic medical condition are required to medicate on a frequent basis - which is often multiple times in a single day.

Lack of adherence to prescribed medication regimens (due to various reasons) and high cost of treatment (a significant share of which stems from non-compliance to treatment), are the major contributing factors to the associated burden on patients and the healthcare system.

However, modern therapy administration technology, such as wearable and implantable drug delivery solutions, allows patients to effectively deal with several of the areas of concern related to therapy adherence and treatment costs.

With provisions to adhere to, or be implanted in the body, this advanced category of drug delivery solutions are known to (1) enable patients to self-medicate (thereby, saving on routine hospital visit fees), (2) effectively reduce the number of needle-pricks in case of patients who are required to medicate multiple times in a day, (3) administer large volumes (more than 2 mL) of therapeutic formulations over an extended period of time, and (4) improve compliance to therapeutic regimens (some devices include provisions for monitoring/tracking dosing).
