According to a report by Technavio a leading market research company, the global pre-filled syringes market is set to expand significantly, with a projected growth of USD 3,512.4 million from 2022 to 2027, at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.93% during this forecast period. This surge is primarily attributed to the shift from traditional glass pre-filled syringes to more innovative plastic alternatives, such as those made from advanced polymeric materials like polypropylene and clear polymers. These plastic pre-filled syringes are gaining popularity due to their biocompatibility with other syringe components and their resistance to common issues associated with glass pre-filled syringes, such as breakage and potential drug interactions.
In recent years, the healthcare industry has recognized the advantages of plastic pre-filled syringes, which are increasingly being adopted by manufacturers and healthcare providers. The advancements in polymer technology further contribute to the growing utilization of plastic pre-filled syringes. As a result, these developments are expected to be key drivers for the growth of the pre-filled syringes market in the coming years.
The pre-filled syringes market is marked by fragmentation, and companies are employing both organic and inorganic growth strategies to stay competitive. Key players in this market include ApiJect Systems Corp., Baxter International Inc., and Fresenius SE and Co. KGaA, each offering a range of prefilled syringes catering to various medical needs.
Key Market Segmentation
The market is segmented by material (glass pre-filled syringes and plastic pre-filled syringes) and type (disposable and reusable). Notably, the market share for glass pre-filled syringes is expected to experience significant growth, with glass syringes being preferred for parenteral drugs due to their non-reactive and stable nature during storage.
Regional Market Outlook
Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia, and the Rest of the World (ROW). North America is anticipated to contribute significantly to the global market’s growth during the forecast period. Factors such as the rising incidence of chronic diseases, technological advancements in prefilled syringes, and recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are driving the market’s expansion in the region. Additionally, healthcare reform efforts in the United States aimed at reducing healthcare costs are expected to further boost market growth.
