The global smart pills technology market is expected to reach USD XX million by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 18.51% from 2016 to 2021. The smart pills technology is a technique used for the preparation of prescription pills, drug delivery systems, diagnosis, and patient monitoring. This technology is revolutionizing the diagnosis of gastrointestinal disorders such as colorectal cancers, constipation, and gastroparesis.

The smart pill is a wireless capsule that can be swallowed, and with the help of a receiver (worn by patients) and software that analyzes the pictures captured by the smart pill, the physician is effectively able to examine the gastrointestinal tract. The gastrointestinal disorders are very common but recently, there have been increasing the incidence of colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and Crohn’s disease as well. According to the US Center for disease control and prevention, in 2012, 134,784 people were diagnosed with colorectal cancer and 51,516 people died of colorectal cancer. This depicts the disease burden in the USA, and a similar trend is followed globally. The global smart pills technology market is expected to have a rapid growth in the near future. Increasing patient/physician preference for this advanced technology which tracks bodily functions and forewarn potential illness is also going to boost the growth of the market.
