Through more than 200 detailed interviews with a variety of physician specialties such as Primary Care Physicians, Endocrinologists, Rheumatologists and Neurologists, as well as 450 patient interviews, research analysts identified key drivers and obstacles to adoption and utilization of various drug delivery technologies. Disease areas of focus for this research are diabetes, chronic pain, inflammatory diseases, and neurological disorders.

"Understanding the views and desires of patients and physicians about drug delivery technologies is an important asset to drug developers," notes Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager, Daniel Ruppar. "As pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies seek to develop the medicines of the future, finding congruency with both patients and prescribers can make the difference between product success and failure. In the wake of the failure of the first inhaled insulin, this research reveals potential insight into areas of opportunity and high desire to end-users."
How important is ease of self-administration to patients? Understanding this question as well as points such as what is valued, willingness to try new technologies, and factors that may deter usage are key points of analysis that can aid companies throughout the drug development and marketing paradigm. In addition, this research analyzes patient responses for several specific products including Byetta, Exubera, Enbrel, Humira and Voltaren Gel, detailing factors such as awareness, usage, and desired product changes. Respondents also present feedback on usage and future adoption of auto-injectors.
"As companies seek product opportunities, an understanding of patient and physician views of drug delivery factors could influence portfolio and development decisions," explains Daniel Ruppar. "Additionally, understanding issues such as patient cost/copay and how value is important for developers."
"Manufacturers that can better understand the drivers and obstacles of adoption and utilization preferences for pharmaceutical drug delivery can develop and refine their technologies to best serve customer demand," says Ruppar. "The identification of technologies of high interest to clinicians and patients by disease area could lead to breakthrough products for developers."
The drug delivery market, valued at over $55.0 billion in 2006 is poised to undergo rapid expansion owing to major patent expiries, generic competition, increasing focus on life cycle management and tightening FDA regulations. Drug delivery technology companies enable drug companies to expand the product development options available to them. As a result, drug delivery companies expect to remain a focus point for developer companies including: pharmaceutical, biotechnology and specialty pharmaceutical companies.
