"Pre-filled syringe unit sales will reach 3.59 billion in 2015" visiongain report predicts

Press Release   •   Jul 05, 2012 11:47 BST

The market for pre-filled syringes has achieved strong growth in recent years, expanding in revenues and unit sales. Visiongain’s report shows how that growth will continue from 2012 to 2022 at a strong rate, as the numbers of pharmaceutical products launched on the market in pre-filled syringe format increases. Use of human medicines in pre-filled syringe packs has broadened in recent years into many therapeutic classes of biological drugs (biologics) and vaccines. That area of drug delivery holds much promise.

Dr Syed Ahmed, a senior pharmaceutical industry analyst at visiongain, explains: “Currently, there are over a thousand injectable drugs in the pharma R&D pipeline, with many being large complex molecules and formulations of proteins that need specific delivery in a liquid stable or lyophilised format. Also, there is increased use of drugs in home care situations, which will result in a need for pre-filled syringes, given their benefits in convenience and safe handling of injected medicines.”

Visiongain’s report provides revenue forecasts to 2022 at overall world market, submarket, branded drug and national level. It forecasts world sales for syringe technology submarkets:

• Pre-filled syringes
