Bolus injectors also referred as patch pumps are class of medical devices for subcutaneous self administration of biologics. Bolus injectors deliver a standardized volume of drug into subcutaneous tissue over a specified period of time. These injectors are typically attached to the patient’s body for a few minutes to a few hours while it delivers the drug into the body. Drug delivery with bolus injectors also enables additional treatment advances by making it convenient, safe, and cost effective delivery of many marketed biologics and biosimilars products.
Bolus injectors market is expected to grow immensely in the coming years, as the delivery of healthcare services shifting its paradigm from clinical settings such as hospitals and private nursing care to the home. The primary driver of the bolus injectors market is the large number of biologics currently under development. As per clinical tests database of the National Institutes of Health, currently more than 800 biological are in the clinical trials for hundreds of diseases, including autoimmune disorders, cancer and many more. Biosimilars and biological are often viscous and require precise training to administer, which often necessitates a patient visit to a hospital, outpatient clinic, or specialty pharmacy solely for drug therapy. Bolus injectors have capability to deliver these complex biologics in a large volume subcutaneously in a simple, reliable, and inexpensive manner, thus fulfill the unmet need of future drug development. In addition, other drivers for adoption of the new bolus injectors include increased patient comfort for greater compliance, lower healthcare costs by moving therapy from office and healthcare professional to home and new safety and needle-stick standards. Many of the established and emerging medical devices companies such as Becton Dickinson and Ratio Drug Delivery are investing huge amount of time and resources to boost patient compliance of these injectors. However, development complexity, stringent regulatory framework and reimbursement restrictions may slow down the growth of this market.
