Safety syringes have a built-in safety mechanism designed to protect healthcare workers from accidental needle stick/ prick injuries. There has been tremendous growth in the market for the past several years, owing to their main safety feature, which can be detached or permanently removed. Pre-filled syringes could help ensure that the right medicine is delivered with precision and at the right dosage, dramatically reducing the risk of medical errors. Furthermore, these syringes are very patient-friendly, especially for self-injections for ailments like insulin injections, artificial hormone therapies, and other medications,. The European Biosafety Network has recently found lowered safety precautions, demonstrating the need for safety syringes for improved safety.

The European safety syringe market is expected to exhibit considerable growth during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to more cases of needle stick injuries, favorable reimbursement policies, and the high number of hospitals and clinics in the region. In addition, several countries have introduced regulations to ensure the mandatory use of safety syringes to reduce needlestick injuries and avoid needle reuse. These regulations have increased the demand for safe syringes and moved the focus of medical device manufacturers on safe syringes over conventional syringes. Furthermore, the increase in hospitalization rate and high incidences of acute/chronic diseases is anticipated to drive the European safety syringes market during the forecast period.

Several factors, such as the high cost of safety syringes compared to conventional syringes, the availability of alternative drug delivery methods such as patches and vacuum injections, and decreased healthcare expenses in some European regions, are limiting the market's growth. In addition, the lack of awareness about products is also anticipated to hamper the European safety syringes market during the forecast period.
