Prefilled Syringes Market - Rising target disease population and Growth Forecast

The Prefilled Syringes Market is estimated to be USD 5.6 billion in 2020 and projected to reach USD 8.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 9.0%.

Rising target disease population;

Prefilled syringes are mainly used for the treatment of chronic conditions, such as heart diseases, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases, which require patients to self-administer medications. As a result, the increasing incidence and prevalence of chronic and lifestyle diseases across the globe is a major factor contributing to the growth of the prefilled syringes market. Moreover, there is a growing demand for self-injection devices, considering the convenience and safety associated with their use.

Following are some of the key statistics related to the growing incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases:

- Globally, in 2019, approximately 436 million adults (prevalence 9.3%) were suffering from diabetes, and it is expected to rise to 700 million (prevalence 10.9%) by 2045. Moreover, more than 1.1 million children and adolescents are living with type 1 diabetes (Source: International Diabetes Federation)

- In 2018, total number of cancer cases globally was recorded at 18 million. Most common cases being lung, breast, and colorectum cancer with incidence rate in double digits (Source: WHO)

 - According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Science, in 2017, 24 million people had a condition of autoimmune disease in the US. Moreover, 8 million people had auto-antibodies—blood molecules that indicate a person's chance of developing autoimmune disease


The Prefilled Syringes Market includes major Tier I and II suppliers like Becton, Dickinson and Company (US), Gerresheimer (Germany), SCHOTT AG (Germany), and West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. (US), and Nipro Corporation (Japan). These suppliers have their manufacturing facilities spread across regions such as North America and Europe. COVID-19 has impacted their businesses as well. Routine care for chronic diseases is an ongoing challenge amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic due to the change in routine care to virtual communication. Diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and hypertension were the most impacted conditions due to a reduction in access to care. Furthermore, currently, most global healthcare resources are focused on coronavirus disease (COVID-19), and this resource reallocation is expected to disrupt the continuum of care for patients with chronic diseases.

Increasing adoption of self-administered injectable drugs is expected to result in the segment occupying the majority of the market share

The conventional Prefilled Syringes Market is estimated to have the largest market share by value. Growth of this segment can be attributed to the the advantages offered, such as safe administration, ease of use for both healthcare professionals and end users, reduced risk of contamination of the product, less waste of costly API, ease of manufacturing, improved dosing accuracy, and enhanced product differentiation when compared to vials is expected to drive the market growth.

Plastic Prefilled Syringes estimated to be the fastest-growing market

Plastic prefilled syringes are estimated to be the fastest-growing segment in the Prefilled Syringes Market. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the rising development of newer polymers (which possess various physical and chemical properties such as high heat & break resistance, tolerance of freeze-drying & liquid nitrogen exposure, high transparency, and solvent resistance.

Europe is estimated to be the largest market due to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, growth of the biologics and biosimilars market, technological advancements, geographical expansion by key manufacturers, aging population, and high adoption of self-injection devices are driving the demand for self-injectable prefilled syringes.
