Global Nicotine Transdermal Patches Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A nicotine transdermal patch is a device that delivers nicotine through the skin. It is used to help people quit smoking cigarettes. The patches are available over-the-counter or by prescription.


21mg/patch is the dosage of nicotine transdermal patches. The 21 mg patch has been designed to deliver a dose equivalent to 1 cigarette and is intended for use by smokers who are trying to quit smoking. It was approved by the U.S FDA in November 2016, as an Over-the-Counter (OTC) product for sale in pharmacies, drug stores and online across America; it became effective from December 2016 onwards.


14mg/patch is the average amount of nicotine present in one single nicotine transdermal patch. The amount of nicotine varies from product to product and is dependent on the formulation of the particular drug. 14 mg/patch contains an equivolume content of 0.14 mg Nicotine Transdermal Patch which is equal to 1% wt/vol Nicorette Buccal Patches or 2% wt/vol Nicorette Gum.

Application Insights:

The age below 30 application segment held the largest share of more than 50.0% in 2017. Increasing use of nicotine transdermal patches for smoking cessation and reduction is expected to be a major factor driving the growth during the forecast period. Moreover, increasing awareness about harm caused by tobacco smoke is likely to result in increased usage of these products among young population groups, which will further fuel market growth over the coming years.

The age above 50 application segment is expected to witness significant growth owing to rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer that are associated with excessive consumption of cigarettes and other tobacco products. Thus, increasing incidence rate coupled with high demand for non-tobacco sources of nicotine among older population groups will boost industry expansion over the forecast period (2017-2030).

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global nicotine transdermal patches market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period as well. This can be attributed to increasing awareness regarding e-cigarettes and their benefits, rising disposable income of consumers, and availability of FDA approved products in this region.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to growing demand for FDA approved products coupled with government support for reducing smoking prevalence rates especially in India & China. For instance, according to WHO data published on 27th April 2018; around 38% of adults (approximately 600 million people) smoke cigarettes in China out of which 23% are current smokers and 7% are occasional smokers. It was observed that men smoked cigarettes more than women (23% compared 17%).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing awareness about the health hazards of smoking and the benefits of quitting smoking
  • Growing number of smokers who are looking for an easier way to quit smoking
  • Rising demand for nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) to help people quit smoking
  • Availability of a wide variety of nicotine transdermal patches in different sizes, shapes, and colors
  • Growing number of pharmaceutical companies that are manufacturing nicotine transdermal patches
