Prefilled Syringes Market Drivers:

The surging use of biological drugs has favored the prefilled syringes industry to a large extent. Biologics help in the treatment of numerous chronic diseases. But biological drugs are known for their high sensitivity to temperature as well as environmental conditions. Interaction with any type of pharmaceutical container can give rise to undesirable substances. In response, prefilled syringes are progressively being used since these provide the correct dimension and do not allow the container to interact with the drug. Plastic is one of the most used materials for substances such as peptide drugs and pharmaceutical proteins. Plastics are flexible and do not have any breakage issues, which are generally associated with glass. Plastics also exhibit excellent adsorption properties. Manufacturers are increasingly going for plastic materials to administer drugs, instead of glass. Prefilled syringe combination products are some of the top trends, since these provide convenience to patients carrying out at-home self-administration, leading to considerable cost savings, especially compared to the clinical setting.

Prefilled syringe demand is further elevated by the mounting focus on the development of parenteral drugs along with their surging consumption worldwide. The market will also benefit from the patients’ heightened preference for self-administrated techniques, which reduces the dependency on healthcare professionals for frequent medicine doses. Soaring knowledge about prefilled syringes filling process and the mushrooming patient base opting for in-home settings over clinical settings in developed countries also enhances the market share.

Prefilled Syringes Market Restraints:

Prefilled syringes offer a high patient safety level by bringing down the chances of needle sticks as well as exposure to harmful products that can happen when drawing the medication from vials. However, a massive number of needle stick injuries are linked to the use of prefilled syringes in comparison to the ones with integrated safety systems. As of 2020, around 450,000 injuries took place in the US, with half of those occurring in hospitals. Moreover, as of 2020, around 1,500,000 injuries happened in Europe. In these cases, the contaminated needle present in the prefilled syringes can result in blood-borne infections, like HCV, and HIV.

The limited presence of advanced prefilled syringes integrated with safety features, in line with their challenging and expensive manufacturing procedure, can be a huge challenge for the players. However, this trend can change in the years to come, since the healthcare sector is focusing more on bringing down the number of needlestick injuries.

Prefilled Syringes Market COVID-19 Analysis

Following the COVID-19 outbreak, the demand for prefilled syringes has risen more than that of glass ampoules or other types of needles owing to the lesser chances of needle-stick injuries. Therefore, to enhance the production of the COVID-19 vaccine, manufacturers have raised their production capacity of prefilled syringes. For example, the U.S. government is now part of a deal worth USD 138 million with major syringe developers to facilitate the manufacturing of 100 million prefilled syringes for COVID-19 vaccines.

The market participants are fostering their spending on raw materials as well as resources in the wake of mounting preference for home-based healthcare services. Healthcare workers are constantly responding to varied techniques of delivering the right care by adopting telemedicine, which brings down face-to-face interaction.

The emerging role of individual and community pharmacists in managing chronic conditions, along with the focus on medication adherence post the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has lessened the burden on the healthcare systems. Overall, the COVID-19 impact on the prefilled syringes market has been relatively positive. This could be attributed to the soaring preference for prefilled syringes instead of glass ampoules.
