Biopharmaceuticals are the drugs produced by using biotechnology. Biopharmaceutical products are normally protein (antibodies), nucleic acids (DNA, RNA or oligonucleotides). They are used for therapeutic and in-vivo diagnostic purpose. Biopharmaceutical substances are derived from the life forms. It is fastest growing segment of the pharmaceutical market. At the moment, biopharmaceuticals are generally delivered by intravenous or subcutaneous injection. This way of administration is effective but not desired by patients especially in the case of chronic disease. Oral drug delivery is the most preferred route of drug administration. Oral drug delivery route is convenient and easy to use. Even though oral drug delivery of biopharmaceutical bring as many advantages as challenges since it shows several barriers like, pH variations, enzymes, tights junctions, electrolytes, water and food effect which limit the absorption of biopharmaceuticals.
Biopharmaceutical Oral Drug Delivery Market: Drivers and Restraints

Safety and efficacy associated with the biopharmaceutical products are the factors driving the growth of this market. Biopharmaceutical can also treat diseases which were previously untreatable due to targeted delivery. Biopharmaceutical oral drug delivery market will be driven by patient compliance of these products. But there remain challenges of bioavailability of these products if given orally. If biopharmaceutical drugs are given orally, they will be degraded by enzymes and acidic environment in stomach and GI. These products cannot cross epithelial barrier of small intestine due to the large size of their molecules. Due to these factors bioavailability of orally induced biopharmaceuticals decreases. The high cost associated with the biopharmaceutical substances is also a restraint for the growth of biopharmaceutical oral drug delivery market.
