Drug delivery system is a controlled mechanism that is designed to introduce a therapeutic effect in a human or animal body to safely release drugs in the body at a controlled rate, time and place. Drugs help in improving health and extend lives. Several drug delivery systems are approached and formulated for treatment of human diseases and are delivered mostly through nasal or pulmonary routes. This method is gaining importance in current medical practice. There are several advantages of sustained release drug delivery over conventional dosage, as it maximizes the utility of drugs, and reduces healthcare costs through improved therapy and shorter treatment period. Therefore, the invention of such infusion pens could make a positive impact on the growth of the global drug delivery devices market over the forecast period of 2017- 2025
