Global Syringes Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global syringes market is estimated to be USD 19.45 billion by 2027 and USD 13 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 8.40% during the forecast period.

Syringes consist of a tube and a plunger attached to a needle. The Syringe is a piece of medical equipment used to emit fluids into a body and can be used to extract fluids like blood from the body. The fluids, like blood, etc., will enter a tube through a needle when a plunger handle is pulled, and the liquid will go out through the needle when the plunger is pushed down. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has urged all to use disposable syringes for safe injection practices. According to WHO, more than 16 billion injections are being used worldwide.

COVID-19 impact on the global syringes market:

COVID-19 was announced as a pandemic by WHO, which recommended lockdown for around 200 countries, which affected so many global markets differently. The Syringes market has been affected both positively and negatively. Due to the lack of workers in the manufacturing industries, the market has faced a few rough times during the lockdown. On the other hand, the syringe market was gradually going into profits after covid. The market has projected to grow by 10.6% during covid, which is 10.3% before covid. The syringes market, especially prefilled syringes, is more in demand, mainly because of the covid vaccine drive. The US government has ordered 100 million prefilled syringes worth USD 138 million for the corona vaccines by the end of 2020 and demanded 500 million prefilled syringes for 2021.


YOY rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, infectious diseases, and cardiovascular diseases is majorly propelling the global syringes market growth.

The global syringes market will witness healthy growth during the forecast period. In addition, the increase in the use of prefilled syringes and an increase in the adoption of injectable drugs fuel the market. Moreover, the rise in the demand for Botox for therapeutic applications is boosting the market. Furthermore, the market is profiting due to the adoption of advanced technology and the launch of various devices favoring end-users. In addition, an increase in surgical procedures is boosting the market.

The vaccination and immunization drive for viruses such as COVID, typhoid, etc., will be a significant growth opportunity for the syringes market. In addition, government investments in hospitals will help the market in the coming years.


The high cost of safety syringes is the major restraint for market growth. Moreover, the availability of alternative drug delivery methods is hindering the market. In addition, the risk of infection and the use of contaminated syringes by reusable syringes are stopping the market growth. Furthermore, day by day, needle stick injuries are increasing, which limits the market growth. Due to a lack of awareness of healthcare and safety issues, emerging countries are ignoring safety syringes, which will be a significant challenge for market growth.
