Nasal sprays are devices that help in the delivery of the drug through the nose in the nasal cavity to treat allergies and other problems related to brain inflammation, diabetes, dental problems, and the central nervous system. Allergy is a condition in which the immune system of the body reacts abnormally to a foreign substance. Nasal spray drug products consist of therapeutically active ingredients or drug substances in the form of solution or suspension of excipients.
There are different types of nasal spray available in the market, such as decongestion nasal spray, saline nasal spray, and steroid nasal spray. Decongestants are devices with drugs for the treatment of nasal congestion and provide short-term relief from a blocked nose. The decongestion nasal spray consists of drugs that open up the airways of the nasal part and helps in the breathing process.
During the cold and dry winter season, saline nasal sprays are used to avoid problems related to a stuffy nose. These devices are used to treat sinusitis, nasal crusting, and thin secretions of liquid from the nose, which are formed due to bacterial infection and lead to the dryness of the nasal area. This device helps in cleaning the nasal passage and mucus present in that area due to cold.
Global Nasal Spray Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:
- Increase in Infection and Allergic Cases
Allergy is a condition that makes the immune system weaken, and the immune system reacts abnormally to a foreign substance. Allergies have many forms, such as Allergic Rhinitis (AR), and this affects nearly 40 to 50 million people in the U.S. Some allergies may interfere with day-to-day activities and the quality of life.
Due to the increase in population, urbanization, and industrialization has increased tremendously, which has led to a rise in allergen. This allergen is responsible for allergies or infectious diseases in many people.
Thus, the rise in the prevalence of allergic diseases such as AR has led to an increase in the demand for nasal sprays, which is expected to drive market growth in the coming years.
- Adverse Effects of Using Nasal Sprays
Many people opt for nasal sprays in order to get relief from a runny and stuffy nose, but using a nasal spray for a longer period of time causes several side effects. Steroid nasal sprays, also called corticosteroid nasal sprays, are anti-inflammatory medicines that are sprayed into the nose. They can be used to treat a range of conditions, including hay fever, sinusitis, non-allergic rhinitis, and nasal polyps. Some steroid nasal sprays are available to buy from pharmacies and shops, while others are only available on prescription.
Using nasal sprays for a prolonged period of time can lead to bleeding from the nose and even headaches. Some may experience other side effects, such as addiction or even congestion.
If one is taking a high dose for a long time, there is also a small chance one could get some of the side effects of steroid tablets, such as increased appetite, mood changes, and difficulty sleeping.
Thus, the adverse effects of nasal sprays are expected to restrain the market growth.
- Expanding Therapeutic Applications for Nasal Sprays
Intranasal administration provides various useful options for the local and systemic delivery of diverse therapeutic agents for the treatment of problems such as allergies, respiratory diseases, and many others.
A nasal spray is one of the recently developed products, such as OptiNose and ViaNase, that helps to enable the targeting of formulations to a specific area of the site in the nasal cavity in humans.
Nasal therapy has been known as a form of treatment in Indian medicine for decades. It is also called “NASAYA KARMA” in Ayurvedic systems in Indian medicine.
The nasal spray consists of one or more than one therapeutically active ingredients in the form of suspension or solution in a non-pressurized dispenser. The most common allergy is AR.
Apart from respiratory problems, there are other therapeutic areas such as orthopedic, renal, and many other areas, where the nasal spray is playing important role in treating and curing such problems. In the future, other treatments may be developed that can help in the treatment of other problems easily.
- Regulatory Hurdles
Nasal drug delivery can be evaluated by many regulatory agencies, such as the U.S. FDA and the European Medicines Agency (EMA). These agencies provide a set of guidelines and regulations for any product before it is launched in the market. They allow performing various in vitro test methods for determining the characterization of nasal drug products and that should come in an acceptable range as given by such regulatory bodies.
Nasal spray can be designed as per the dose requirement of drug substances for patients suffering from nasal or any other issues. Some aspects of nasal sprays may be exceptional in the case of formulation, manufacturing, container closure system, stability, controls of critical steps, intermediates, and drug products. These aspects should be measured carefully while developing a program of nasal spray. Because of these changes ability of the product to treat patients may get affected.
Strict rules and regulations for the product for nasal spray manufacturing are more challenging for the manufacturer to get approval from regulatory agencies. The spray characteristics can be influenced by the design of the device, and by the handling of the device. Performing such tests to get the perfect result, that is, an acceptable range as given by the regulatory body, is more challenging in nasal spray manufacturing.
