This BCC market research report, Pulmonary Drug Delivery Systems: Technologies and Global Markets, provides a detailed overview and thorough analysis of the present and future global market for pulmonary drug delivery technologies.  This report analyzes in detail the pulmonary drug delivery technologies that are available and currently used and their markets.  This report includes products in this market and detailed analyses of the markets and competitive environments.  It also analyzes current and future market prospects.  The report provides a comprehensive review of emerging pulmonary drug delivery technologies, particularly with regard to inhaled drug delivery systems.  The analysis reviews technological developments, product innovations, and recent strategic industry activities of major players across different product categories.  It reviews their strengths and weaknesses, opportunities, and the threats facing various devices and drugs in this market space.  The report also reviews developments already on the market, major issues involved in the research and development (R&D) of more effective devices for drug delivery to the lungs, and new products in development.

Pulmonary drug delivery has emerged as a more relevant alternative for delivering drugs.   Respiratory conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary, and emphysema disease are therapeutic areas of the pulmonary sector.  However, recent technological advancements have applied the application of pulmonary devices to the treatment of nonrespiratory conditions such diabetes and migraines.  Advancements in formulating technology are expected to push sales of dry powder inhalers, replacing metered-dose inhalers to a large extent.   Pulmonary delivery of drugs for the treatment of respiratory diseases stems from the fact that topical drug deposition to the infected lung gives a fast therapeutic effect and reduces side effects associated with key drugs.   There is a need to understand the trends in this market, currently available devices and their problems, and the latest developments for drug delivery to the lungs.

The report reviews global markets for drug delivery technologies and new developments, and forecasts trends for use of current devices for drug delivery and for safety and toxicology through 2016.   The report presents important devices, technologies, and the latest developments, market share by device and disease type, current products on the market, market share by company or product, and statistical information for types of respiratory diseases prevalent worldwide, with special emphasis on the U.S. market.   The report also includes current issues and trends affecting the industry including costs, and factors influencing demand will be discussed.  The report covers products in development, new technologies, trends, alliances, patents, and mergers.  The report offers market data with respect to segments and geography.  It also provides market trends with respect to drivers, restraints, and opportunities.
