The Europe injectable drug delivery market is estimated to have reached a value of around $6.8 billion by the end of 2012, and is forecast to grow to a total of $12.4 billion by 2017. This suggests a CAGR growth rate of around 12.7% between 2012 and 2017.

The growth of the injectable drug delivery technologies market is primarily triggered by favorable reimbursement policies on injectable drugs and devices, technological advancements, surge of biologics in pharmaceutical markets, rising incidences of cancer and diabetes in Europe, and improving patient compliance. The evolving opportunities in this market for manufacturers include development of biosimilars in pharmaceutical markets and focus of pharmaceutical manufacturers towards emerging markets such as Spain, Russia, Denmark, Ireland and others. However, factors such as needle-stick injuries and infections and development of alternate delivery methods are restraining the growth of the market.

The Europe injectable drug delivery technologies market has witnessed challenging and dynamic market conditions (due to technological advancements and surge of biologics and biosimilars in pharmaceutical market) over the last five years. Newer products with better safety and efficacy contribute to the widespread adoption of injectable drug delivery technologiesby physicians and patients. However, factors such as needle-stick injuries and infections and development of alternate delivery methods (oral, nasal and topical) for injectable drugs are restraining the growth of the market.

Germany accounted for the largest market share of the European injectable drug delivery technologies market in 2012, followed by France. While Germany is a mature market experiencing a surge in biologics and high incidence of chronic diseases, France is the fastest-growing region. This is due to high insurance coverage for injectable devices and formulations, affordability for healthcare expenses, and activities such as exhibitions and conferences hosted by France that address injectable drug delivery technologies.
