Smart Pills Market Breakdown, Development and New Market Opportunities & Forecasts


Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/19/2019 -- Smart pills can be used to monitor the drug adherence, temperature and some other parameters in the patients. Smart pills are ingestible medical devices that can be taken orally to examine the gastrointestinal tract (GI).The advanced technology of smart pills helps in monitoring of patients, disease diagnosis, and help to improve the drug delivery. This might help physicians to monitor the patient's conditions, and to check the timely routine of patient's medication. The smart pills may alert about the expiry date of medicines, drug completion course and prevent from adverse events. These are expected to replace conventional diagnostic techniques such as endoscopy and colonoscopy. The need for convenient, and accurate treatment strategies has generated the interest in the research of smart pills.

Increasing prevalence of gastro-intestinal diseases is expected to boost the market growth
People above 65 years of age are more vulnerable to Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Therefore, increasing prevalence of IBD in geriatric population is expected to lead to high demand for smart pills. Elderly people often forget or may take the wrong medication. For instance, according to World Health Organization (WHO), 50% of people forget to take pills or take wrong medication, which may have adverse effects on health. The novel smart pills technology has a potential to efficiently address this situation. Moreover, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 1 million people suffered from IBD in the U.S. in 2015. Such increase in the incidences of gastrointestinal diseases can be attributed to unhealthy or changing lifestyle, low fiber intake, food intolerance, allergies, and stress. Conventional approaches fail to offer accurate results in the treatment of these diseases. This in turn increases the demand for precise diagnosis and monitoring of diseases, which is expected to boost demand for smart pills.

Though the adaptability in the patients and to customize the product according to consumer needs will be some of the causes which might slowdown the smart pills market.
