The drug delivery polymer market is projected to grow at a CAGR of XX.XX% to reach US$XX.XXX billion by 2023, from US$XX.XXX billion in 2017. Polymers used for the delivery of drugs into an animal during pre-clinical and humans during clinical trials (for the study of drug dynamics) and also during the medical procedures or after the procedure is over are known as Drug Delivery Polymers. They act as a carrier for the controlled release of drugs into the body. Therefore, they find immense potential in healthcare and pharmaceuticals. On the basis of their characteristics which include natural or synthetic or combination of both, protein-based, polyester etc., degradable or non-biodegradable and hydrophilic or hydrophobic these polymers are inert drug carriers and thus are considered safe for consumption.

Switzerland, from the European region, has the highest production of pharmaceuticals. The multinational corporations, Roche and Novartis have their headquarters in Basel. Furthermore, the growing healthcare expenditure, increasing elderly population worldwide and a worldwide prevalence of chronic diseases are some of the drivers driving the market growth.
