Buccal Drug Delivery Systems Market Growth & Trends

The global buccal drug delivery systems market size is expected to reach USD 6.56 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2024 to 2030. Buccal drug delivery systems have gained significant momentum since the last decade. Elimination of first-pass metabolism, quick absorption of the pH-sensitive drug, no interaction with stomach acid, quicker onset of action than any oral dose, minimal side effects, and reduced drug degradation are some of the factors fueling the market growth. Buccal drug delivery has gained large acceptance among geriatric patients and patients having difficulty swallowing.

Leading players like Generex, NovaDel, Biodiversity Sciences International, and Transcept Pharmaceuticals are constantly developing critical drugs like insulin, heparin, morphine, long-lasting pain analgesics, and some anti cardiac drugs into rapid mists, mucoadhesive discs, and lozenges. Commercialization of this research would eventually lead to being a major life savior as it would ensure the faster onset of action and eliminate drug degradation. Despite the increased R&D activity among market players, asteep decline was observed in the sales and revenue gainsdue to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Except for covid medications, several other drug markets were majorly hit leading to the dip in the market for buccal drug delivery. However, it is expected to bounce back by 2022.
