Smart pill is an ingestible capsule which consists of miniaturized electronics such as cameras, trackers, patches and sensors which helps in diagnosing and monitoring gastrointestinal disorders. This technology will revolutionize the gastrointestinal diagnosis field. The smart pill has great flexibility and can deliver the drug in desired location with required rate and dose. It can also monitor gastrointestinal environment. The therapies which cannot be delivered by regular means can be delivered by smart pills. Smart pills will help in monitoring various parameters such as pressure, drug adherence, temperature and pH in patients. These pills are made of bioinert polymers which will remain chemically and physically stable during storage of drug. These polymers are impermeable to gastric fluids. The drug from the smart pill is released by active or passive mechanism. In active mechanism the delivery of the drug can be controlled better. Further, the camera smart pill can be used in diagnosis for gastrointestinal disorder where ultrasound is ineffective. Non-dissolvable smart pills will enhance the diagnostic performance.

The major factor that drives the growth of smart pills market is increase in the prevalence of gastrointestinal diseases. The other important factor which will drive the growth of this market is increase in the geriatric population. For instance, according to WHO, in 2015, 900 million people were 60 years of age or older and this number is expected to reach up to 2 billion by 2050.  However, high cost of smart pills can hamper the growth of the smart pills markets. Technological advancements will also fuel the growth of this market. For instance, in August 2014, CapsoVision launched CapsoCam SV-2 which is a smart capsule with hallmark 360 degree for panoramic lateral viewing.

For instance, in March 2016, Medtronic received FDA approval for PillCam COLON 2 Capsule for an expanded indication. It is approved for detection of colon polyps. With the launch of PillCam COLON 2 Capsule, Medtronic will gain more market share.

The major players in the smart pills market are Fujifilm Holdings Corporation, CapsoVision, Inc., Olympus Corporation, Given Imaging Ltd., and Proteus Digital Health, Inc.
