The increasing number of drugs that must be infused is creating a new class of drug delivery devices – devices that can deliver therapeutic drugs in volumes up to 10 mL and higher to ambulatory patients. Wearable subcutaneous infusion systems are targeting the growing need for administering biologicals – a segment that includes monoclonal antibodies, immune modulators and blood factors – that are indicated for chronic conditions. These devices distinguish themselves from syringes and injectors by delivering drug volumes in excess of 1-2 mL for durations that are measured in minutes rather than seconds. Several products in this device class have already reached the market, and recent agreements between device suppliers and pharma companies validate the market need that wearable infusion systems address. We expect wearable infusion systems to achieve and sustain double digit unit growth through the end of the decade.
