There are two major types of bioadhesive: plant-based and animal-based. Bioadhesives have been investigated as potential drug delivery systems for oral administration. There is various medicine where bioadhesive is used such as nasal spray ear drops, eye drops, ointment, hydrogel, nanosphere suspension, insufflation, and microsphere tablet.
Prevalence of dental and ophthalmic diseases is increasing, which is boosting the demand for Bioadhesive gel . According to a report published by World Health Organization (WHO), in 2017, a number of population with vision impairment could triple due to aging population growth, and it is projected that by 2050 around 115 million people are likely to get blind. The report suggests that around 19 million children below age 15 years are vision impaired, including 12 million children who have a vision impairment due to refractive error and 1.4 million have irreversible blindness.
Increasing prevalence of diseases, rising demand for better treatment, increasing investment in biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries for research and development, and availability of funds drive the growth of the market. Moreover, increasing government support for research & development, changing lifestyle, and rapidly developing technology are expected to fuel the market growth during the forecast period. However, the high cost of the treatment may slow the market growth during the period 2017-2023.
The global bioadhesive market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period 2017-2023.
Europe dominates the global Bioadhesive market owing to the large presence of manufacturers and increasing government support for research & development. Moreover, increasing demand for bioadhesive globally leads the manufacturer to increase the export of these products and capture the highest market share of the global market.
The Americas hold the second largest share of the global bioadhesive market as result of increasing focus of various government agencies on the treatment of rare diseases such as ophthalmic and dental. Moreover, the growing public awareness about bioadhesive likely to boost the Americas market.
The Asia Pacific is the fastest growing bioadhesive market across the globe. Rapidly developing the economy, increasing healthcare expenditure, and the government’s initiatives for research & development are projected to drive the market of this region over the forecast period.
The Middle East and Africa hold the least share of the global market due to limited availability of medical facilities.
