Dublin, July 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Transdermal Medical Patch Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Type, Application, and Distribution Channel" report has been added to's offering.

The transdermal medical patch market is expected to grow from US$ 8.24 billion in 2022 to US$ 10.79 billion by 2028; it is estimated to register a CAGR of 4.0% from 2023 to 2028.

The transdermal medical patch is a medicated patch that can deliver drugs through skin portals directly to the bloodstream at a predetermined rate. This is the most comfortable dosage form, it is non-invasive, avoids the gastrointestinal tract and bypasses first-pass metabolism, can have multiday therapy, and can be terminated at any time.

Many market players and research institutes operating in the transdermal medical patch market are developing advanced technologies to expand their product portfolios and increase their market shares.

In the US, tobacco is one of the significant causes of disease, disability, and death. According to the data published by CDC in 2021, an estimated 28.3 million adults smoke cigarettes in the US. Nearly 1,600 people (younger than 18 years) smoke their first cigarette every day in the US, and nearly half a million Americans die prematurely due to secondhand smoke exposure. Another 16 million suffer from serious illnesses caused by smoking.

According to the information released by the CDC in March 2022, approximately 34% of high school students (5.22 million) and 11.3% of middle school students (1.34 million) consume one form of tobacco, such as cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco, hookahs, pipe tobacco, heated tobacco products, nicotine pouches, or bidis (small brown cigarettes wrapped in a leaf). As per the same source, e-cigarettes are the most frequently used tobacco products among high and middle school students. CDC also states that the US spends more than US$ 225 billion on medical care each year to treat smoking-related diseases in adults.

Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) has proven to help people seeking to quit smoking. It makes use of nicotine patches that deliver modest nicotine dosages to relieve cravings. Nicotine is progressively absorbed through the skin once nicotine patches are applied.

Smokers with a greater dependence level can use the most robust patches, while those with a lower dependence level can use a lesser dosage. The critical advantage of nicotine patches over acute NRT formulations (gum, nasal spray, oral inhaler, and tablet) is the simplicity of compliance, rather than consuming a medicine throughout the day. Thus, the increasing consumption of tobacco leads to increasing demand for nicotine patches, thereby driving the transdermal medical patch market growth.
