Smart pills are capsule-sized ingestible medical devices consisting of elements such as sensors, cameras, patches, and trackers that help in better diagnostics, patient monitoring, and targeted drug delivery. They are majorly available in the form of a vitamin capsule-sized pill and possess a small wearable sensor patch, an application on a mobile device, and a provider portal.

The strategic collaboration is a vital factor for the overall growth of the smart pills market. The players are involved in mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, and partnerships. These activities help expand the influence of the players in the market, eventually strengthening the growth structure. Furthermore, the investment levels in the smart pills market are expanding at a rapid pace. The rising popularity of smart pills among a large chunk of the global populace attracts many investors. Various companies and investment firms are investing heavily in mergers, acquisitions, and startups. These factors help increase the growth rate of the smart pills market.

Speak to Research Analyst:

Moreover, collaborations agreements between research institutions and companies, licensing agreements & partnerships amongst companies, and augmented R&D investment on smart pills are other factors boosting the market growth. In addition, for instance, in January 2021, etectRx, Inc. entered into a partnership agreement with Pear Therapeutics, Inc. to develop two product candidates in the CNS space integrating adherence sensors and PDTs (Prescription Digital Therapeutics). The partnership is the first of its kind in exploring the usage of digital pill solutions with PDTs. Furthermore, the elderly population is highly vulnerable to gastrointestinal disorders. Various smart pills are now being analyzed for potential application in therapeutics and diagnosing several acute and chronic diseases. Patients with chronic diseases who need to follow a specified dose of medication at the target site are anticipated to form a large customer base for advanced drug delivery products.

The increasing demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures led to innovative techniques such as capsule endoscopy. Capsule endoscopy is replacing traditional endoscopy methods with advantages such as ease of administration and detailed observation of the gastrointestinal tract. The capsule endoscopy plays a vital role in the early diagnosis and proper treatment of these disorders, in addition to hybrid imaging technologies and new component innovations. Additionally, as per the University of Texas Health Science Center, the deployment of various colorectal cancer screening procedures such as capsule endoscopy improves adherence to screening. The university conducted a study comprising haphazardly assigned patients aged between 50 and 75 years and inferred that capsule endoscopy gives better diagnostic results when compared with CT colonography. Such findings are boosting the smart pills market growth.
