Healthcare Markets for Medical Microneedles • HMN449K • March 2021 • US $3,850
Advances in materials processing – technologies that include micromachining, nanoprocessing and structured film forming – are creating new devices and new opportunities for minimally invasive medicine. The processing techniques incorporate one or more technologies that enable the precise machining, extrusion, casting, and/or forming of from one to an array or grid of microneedles. Microneedle technology has the potential to address the growing trend toward minimally invasive medicine by allowing the precise delivery of therapeutic agents to prescribed locations below the skin. Microneedles will also be a factor in continuous and ambulatory patient monitors and point-of-care diagnostics.
