Report Highlights

  • Despite the complaints of health care being too expensive, the U.S. pharmaceutical industry is expected to offer increasing opportunities for advanced drug delivery systems, with the U.S. market for the systems estimated at $16.3 billion in 2000. The efficacy, safety, and convenience of the technologies should maintain average annual growth of 10.9% over the next five years, when sales are predicted to be about $27.4 billion.
  • At $13.8 billion in estimated 2000 manufacturers' sales, standard controlled release technologies (microencapsulation, polymer/membrane, and coatings) dominate the market for advanced drug delivery systems. The intense competition in generic products is stimulating growth (7.2%), especially in oral formats, both osmotic and microencapsulated. Demand for injected sustained release products is also spurring growth. The widespread interest in controlled released systems should result in sales reaching $19.6 billion in five years.
