[226 Pages Report] As per Future Market Insights’ latest industry analysis, the global dissolving microneedles market is estimated to reach US$ 40.22 Mn in 2022 and is further expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 9.5% over the forecast period, totaling around US$ 99.24 Mn by 2032.

Microneedles have been and continue to be a focus of research for a variety of medicinal purposes. Research on dissolving microneedles is expanding quickly, both in academic institutions and in many therapeutic clinical applications. Till December 2021, ten clinical trials employing dissolving microneedles were conducted.

Clinical trials for dissolving microneedles concentrate on their therapeutic application for cosmetics, anti-infectives (mostly vaccines), cancer, and skin diseases. Thus, strong product pipeline of dissolving microneedles for numerous applications is anticipated to drive market growth for dissolving microneedles.

Furthermore, the emergence of dissolving microneedles as a better alternative to hypodermic needles for vaccination as well as for cosmetic application is boosting the demand for dissolving microneedles. Instead of using a hypodermic needle, administering vaccines with a small patch coated in several soluble microscopic needles may result in safer, more effective vaccinations that anybody may administer.

Needles used for hypodermic injections are regarded as biomedical waste and have to be disposed off in designated containers. The needles in the patch disappear into the body as soon as it is placed into the skin, leaving only the backing, which dissolves in water.

The reusing of needles, which occurs in areas with inadequate medical facilities, would be halted by the dissolving microneedle patches. The cost of the dissolving microneedle patches would be the same as that of traditional needles and syringes.

Additionally, dissolving microneedles can offer strong market potential with on-the-go and easy-to-use/administer dosage form in a minimally invasive manner. Also, there are a significant number of patients that are needle phobic, which makes the administration of vaccines difficult. Hence, there is significant demand for minimally invasive drug delivery systems like transdermal delivery of drugs.
