These technologies offer various benefits over traditional delivery forms. Reduced dosage and dosage frequency, less gastrointestinal side effects, enhanced patient compliance, uniform drug effect, improved drug efficacy and safety, and reduced fluctuation of plasma drug levels are some of the benefits offered by these technologies.

Dysphagia in geriatric population and unpleasant taste of pediatric dosages are playing a vital role in boosting the adoption of controlled release drug delivery systems. According to a report published by Orbis Biosciences, with reduction in frequency of dosages, compliance rates are witnessed to increase. Innovations in various drug delivery systems has been providing geriatric and pediatric population with easy solutions, which are further propelling the market. Controlled release of drugs allows reduction in overdose in elderly population as they can be altered according to required dosage over a specific period of time.
