Current Scenario of the Global Prefilled Syringes Market  

The prefilled syringes are disposable syringes that are already loaded with the drug to be injected to avoid cases of overfill. The global prefilled syringes market has been experiencing prominent growth in recent periods due to the prevalence of chronic disease conditions requiring injectable medications. According to reports, in 2022, only in the U.S. will close to 133 million individuals suffering from one or more chronic disorders, and the number is likely to reach 170 million by 2030. The prefilled syringes will reduce the dosage errors and wastage of the expensive drug product as it was loaded during manufacturing and can be used only for a single purpose. Prefilled syringes provide excellent patient safety by reducing the cases of needle sticks and toxic product exposure. Various advantages of prefilled syringes, like convenience to use, affordability, accuracy with sterility, and safety enhance the adoption of these syringes over conventional ones, further accelerating the market growth. The continuous R&D activities by the market players in introducing effective and safe products and government support initiatives will create market growth opportunities in the coming years. Over 40% of the major pharmaceutical companies have prefilled syringe manufacturing facilities across Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. 


The increased incidence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, increased demand for self-medication, and the growing aging population worldwide primarily drive the global prefilled syringes market growth. Many patients affected by chronic diseases benefit from prefilled syringes as there is a need for continuous medication for chronic diseases. The total availability and increasing use of single-cavity prefilled syringes are key factors driving the growth of the global prefilled syringes market. Furthermore, the healthcare industry has witnessed chronic diseases such as cardiovascular, cancer, respiratory, and diabetes due to lifestyle changes and the lack of preventive care opportunities, especially in developing countries. Therefore, it is merely to boost the prefilled syringes market growth. The governments have started focusing on prefilled syringes for palliative benefits. These prefilled syringes are mainly used for people suffering from chronic diseases and are under palliative care. Increasing ulcerative colitis (UC) disorder also drives the use of prefilled syringes. It is a chronic disease that affects bowel disorders through continuous inflammation. The healthcare industries have witnessed the prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular and cancer in developing countries. Therefore, it has boosted the market demand for prefilled syringes. The devices like pen injection are one of the significant selling products in prefilled syringes.

In addition, the development of technologically advanced prefilled syringes and the growing demand for self-injected devices propel the prefilled syringes market growth. Increasing production of prefilled syringes by several pharmaceutical companies will also drive the market in the coming years. Factors such as minimizing drug waste, increasing product life span, convenient drug administration, using prefilled syringes in hospitals and homes, and reducing healthcare provider need drive the prefilled syringe market every time. It also reduces the toxin that occurs when drawing the medication from the vials, and it also reduces dosage errors.


However, certain complexities associated, such as drug reaction with primary packaging, may affect the prefilled syringes market growth to a certain extent. The response to plastic also affects the quality of the drugs, hampering the market growth. Using glass prefilled syringes also restrained the market growth. These Glass prefilled syringes may get broken during transportation or slip from hand. A lack of awareness about these prefilled syringes also hinders the market growth. In low-developed countries, prefilled syringes use is low due to a lack of awareness and fear of using their own. Limited time for storing these prefilled syringes based on the disease type also hampers the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 On The Global Prefilled Syringes Market

The COVID-19 impact has favored the prefilled syringes market growth. The novel coronavirus's impact, especially on pharmaceutical packaging, is projected to be more striking because of the production of vaccines for the coronavirus. There is a surge in demand for prefilled syringes over other needles to minimize the risk of needlestick injuries. Hence, the manufacturers are ready to increase production efficiency, intending to incline the production of the COVID-19 vaccine. For instance, the United States government agreed to $138 million with the manufacturers to escalate the production of 100 million more prefilled syringes for the Coronavirus vaccines by the end of 2020 and more than 500 million by 2021. An escalation in clinical trials for coronaviruses has shown an outcome in the large production of different drugs. Considering the reducing impact of COVID-19 impact and the uplifting of the restrictions imposed, the global market for prefilled syringes market is anticipated to register a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
