Market dynamics

The nanotechnology drug delivery market share in expected to grow significantly, owing to prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, and neurological conditions, and technological advancement in the field of nanotechnology.

The prevalence of chronic diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, and neurological conditions, has emerged as a major driver for the nanotechnology drug delivery market. These chronic diseases pose significant challenges to the healthcare industry due to their complex nature and long-term management requirements. According to American Cancer Society, it is estimated in 2023, about 297,790 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in U.S. Nanoparticles, nanocarriers, and other nanoscale drug delivery platforms offer unique properties that enhance drug stability, solubility, bioavailability, and control over release kinetics. For instance, In April 2022, researchers from the National University of Singapore, in collaboration with other institutions, demonstrated the potential of nano-sized vesicles released by red blood cells for delivering immunotherapeutic RNA molecules to suppress breast cancer and metastasis. Furthermore, Researchers at POSTECH, ' Pohang University of Science and Technology in South Korea, made an announcement on March 2, 2023, regarding their achievement in developing a nanomedicine method that enables electrical stimulation of the brain without requiring implanted electrodes. Their technique involves utilizing piezoelectric nanoparticles that react to ultrasonic waves, emitting nitric oxide and causing a temporary disruption of the blood-brain barrier. As a result, targeted delivery of therapeutic substances becomes possible. This non-invasive approach holds great potential for the treatment of brain diseases.

In addition, recent advancements in nanomaterials have opened new possibilities in the field of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) treatment. Significantly, the application of nanoparticles and nanocarriers in cardiology has attracted considerable attention due to their inherent characteristics, which include actively and passively targeting cardiac tissues, improved specificity for targets, and heightened sensitivity. A study report by the National Library of Medicines in 2023 revealed that nanotechnology may efficiently treat over 50% of CVDs. Employing nano carrier-based drug delivery specifically tailored for the heart is an effective and efficient approach to address cardiac-related disorders like atherosclerosis, hypertension, and myocardial infarction.

Furthermore, technological advancement in the field of nanotechnology has also contributed significantly to the growth of the market. For instance, researchers from Mount Sinai Health System and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, U.S., announced the development of a drug delivery approach using nanoparticles to deliver anti-cancer drugs more effectively and target brain tumors in children.  The delivery of drugs to specific tumor sites is enhanced, while simultaneously minimizing impact on healthy regions of the brain by utilizing this technology. As a result, the effectiveness of treatment is improved, and the occurrence of toxic side effects is reduced. In addition, in 2020, researchers from the University of Michigan, USA developed a synthetic protein nanoparticle capable of passing through the blood-brain barrier in mice. This nanoparticle holds the potential for delivering cancer-killing drugs directly to malignant brain tumors.

Moreover, microrobots in nanotechnology have gained significant attention in healthcare applications due to their potential for targeted drug delivery, minimally invasive surgery, and precise diagnostics. These tiny robots, often measuring less than a millimeter in size, are designed to navigate and interact with biological systems at the cellular or molecular level. For instance, in 2022, researchers at Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) in South Korea developed a technology to produce over 100 microrobots per minute that may be disintegrated into the body. This advancement is expected to enhance regenerative medicine, including stem cell delivery.

However, the manufacturing complexities such as maintaining stability while large scale production of nanomedicines is expected to act as a significant restraint for the nanotechnology drug delivery. The production of nanoscale drug delivery systems requires precise control over various parameters, including particle size, shape, surface characteristics, and drug loading capacity. Achieving these specifications consistently and on a large scale may be extremely challenging. Nanoparticles are typically synthesized using complex techniques such as emulsion, precipitation, and self-assembly, which demand meticulous control over reaction conditions, solvent selection, and surface modification

On the other hand, increase in Government initiatives such as funding to establish research centers for research and development of nanotechnology have the potential to act as significant growth opportunities in the field of nanotechnology drug delivery. For instance, The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is a U.S. Government research and development (R&D) initiative. The NNI participating agencies work together to advance discovery and innovation across nanotechnology R&D. Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) India, has taken several major initiatives for the promotion of Nanoelectronics research and innovation in the country. Major Nanoelectronics Centers of international standards have been established at premier institutes in the country.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the nanotechnology drug delivery market size. The pandemic has brought attention to the capabilities of nanotechnology in delivering drugs. The pressing requirement for effective COVID-19 treatments and vaccines has resulted in swift progress in the field of nanomedicine. Scientists have employed nanoparticles to deliver drugs, such as antivirals and antibodies, with the specific aim of targeting the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These tiny carriers have the ability to boost drug stability, extend drug release duration, and enhance the availability of therapeutic substances. A notable example is the mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines developed by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. However, in the post pandemic phase the resuming of research in other sectors of healthcare other than COVID-19 will further drive the nanotechnology drug delivery market growth.
