Smart pill is one of the emerging technologies in the health care industry. Smart pill contains a drug and an ingestible sensor. The ingestible sensor gets activated when it comes into contact with stomach fluid. The sensor transfers anatomical data of the target area to the patch which is worn by the patient. The data can be send to physicians or caregivers with the consent of the patient. In November 2017, the USFDA approved the first smart pill, Abilify MyCite, for elderly patients suffering from schizophrenia.. Through the help of information sent by sensor, the patient can be remembered the time of medicine taken.
The global smart pills market is driven by factors such as growing geriatric population, developing health care infrastructure, and rising trend of adopting emerging technologies. However, lack of awareness regarding smart pills, low availability and high price of the product, and stringent regulatory policies are anticipated to restrain the growth of the smart pills market during the forecast period. Nevertheless, rise in mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures, increase in R&D investments, and technological advancement are projected to provide the global smart pills market attractive opportunities to expand during the forecast period.
