Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Transdermal Skin Patches Market: Snapshot
Traditional drug delivery methods like capsules, pills, liquids, intravenous needles and powders are often ineffective and may result in undesirable side effects. Transdermal delivery constitutes an important and effective route for new drug delivery. The patches can be placed anywhere on the body and can be worn for as little as 7 hours to as long as one week, depending on its therapeutic indication.
The medicated adhesive patches are designed in such a way that they attach comfortably to the surface of the skin, which helps the patient use the patches for prolonged periods.

Transdermal patches offer several advantages as compared to conventional drug delivery methods like reduced side effects caused due use of oral tablets or pills. They increase the bioavailability of the drug as substance need not be digested first. This helps in keeping the substance chemically unchanged which enable direct access of the drug to the region of the body where it can take effect via the bloodstream. This helps in avoiding first-pass effect or the initial metabolism and filtration by the liver. Another advantage of transdermal patches is that they release the drug constantly and continuously for long durations, which means that the patient need not worry about taking pills several times a day.

This rise will be attributable to the shifting preference for matrix systems to make patches for volatile molecules under controlled release settings.
