Editorial: active transdermal patches provide opportunities for smart fabrics

published in Issue 94, 3rd quarter 2013  

Transdermal patches are used to deliver a wide variety of pharmaceuticals or to promote healing in an injured area of the body. Alternately, they may be used to deliver drugs to help people to cope with addictions. Indeed, it was the advent of a patch to help people to stop smoking tobacco which led to the development of the transdermal patch industry on a significant scale. Since then, the market for transdermal patches has grown steadily, and is forecast to grow by an average of 4.2% per annum between 2012 and 2017. Moreover, the value of materials used in the manufacture of the patches is predicted to grow by 6.1% per annum. In this report, Robin Anson discusses the different types of transdermal patches available and analyses recent product innovations in the market. Companies mentioned in this report include: 3M, Actavis, Ambicare Health, Freudenberg, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Hewlett-Packard (HP), Lederle Laboratories, Lydall, Marion Merrel Down, Novartis, NuPathe, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble (P&G), Sanofi Pasteur, TheraJect, Trevira, UCB, and Warner-Lambert. This report provides invaluable insight into the market for transdermal patches and its potential for growth in the future.
