Transdermal drug delivery system is usually well liked by patients and second in terms of preference after oral route. The global market for transdermal system is expected to rise in near future. Skin is considered to be the major barrier in transdermal delivery. However, few technologies and advances such as radiofrequency, ultrasound, electroporation, iontophoresis, and microneedle have been identified to overcome these barriers. Systems or devices that incorporate these technologies and make self administration of drugs possible by increasing patient compliance have been identified and explained.
