Global Transdermal Patch Market, Dosage, Price and Clinical Trials Insight 2028 Report Highlights:
The technological advancements in drug delivery have led to innovation of transdermal patches. The transdermal skin patches are articulated to deliver the active ingredients of drugs across skin into the systemic blood circulation in a continued or measured mode through diffusion. Apart from being convenient to patients and non-invasive, transdermal patches offer other advantages such as circumventing first-pass digestion and avoidance of gastric/enzymatic degradation. The transdermal patches are currently being commercialized as hassle-free, convenient, and durable products. These patches can be worn until seven days, depending on their therapeutic indication.
The promising response of transdermal patches in the global market has further surged the further research and development in this sector. For instance in 2019, US FDA has approved Secuado, which is the first transdermal patch to treat Schizophrenia.
