Market Overview

The Global "Autoinjectors Market" is expected to grow at a CAGR of 21.6% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Autoinjectors are easy-to-handle, and cost-effective small pen-shaped medical devices that contain a hypodermic needle and are designed for self-administration of a dose of a specific drug by patients. Autoinjectors are spring-loaded pre-filled syringes that are particularly designed for easy and safe administration of the drugs even in the home care setting. The injectable drug delivery method is a technology-driven market, and technologically advanced autoinjectors have now replaced traditionally used self-injection devices, that were earlier used for the delivery of human growth hormones and insulin. Autoinjectors have reduced healthcare costs by reducing the number of visits to the hospital. Autoinjectors have several advantages, such as a reduction in needlestick injuries, needle phobia anxiety, and consistency regarding dose accuracy.

These devices are used for injecting life-saving drugs of anaphylaxis, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and other chronic and allergic diseases. As per the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) in 2015 around 15 million people in the U.S. and as per the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) around 17 million people in Europe suffered from food allergies. The increasing prevalence of anaphylaxis globally is increasing demand for adrenaline, and epinephrine auto-injectors.

Market Drivers

The market is driven by the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and allergies, technological advancements, increasing regulatory approval, and ease in handling.

Major companies in the segment are coming up with advanced technology platforms and innovative devices. Companies are offering a variety of user-friendly drug delivery solutions such as Breeze™ technology by Nuance Designs that enables the creation of a new class of smaller, smarter drug delivery devices and Depot Control technology by Union Medico that ensures stability at needle penetration and LED light to prevent over-pressing. Other technologies include VapourSoft™ and ASI® technology by Bespak and Rotaject™ Pressure Release technology, NIT™ technology, and Pushclick™ technology by SHL Group. Some of the new features include one-handed operation, push-on-skin release, automatic reconstitution/priming, twist, and mix mechanism, anti-roll, compact and sleek design, LCD screens, and Bluetooth, and other connectivity platforms.

Global Autoinjectors Market Restraints

Preference for alternative drug delivery modes and lack of development of autoinjectors for multiple drug viscosities are likely to hamper the growth of the market in the forecast period.

Segmentation Analysis

The global autoinjectors market can be segmented by type as disposable autoinjectors and reusable autoinjectors, by technology as manual autoinjectors and automated autoinjectors, by therapy as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, Anaphylaxis, and Others and by the end-user as Home Care Settings, hospitals, and ambulatory surgical centers.

Disposable autoinjectors are expected to dominate the market over the forecast period as they are easy to use and have a built-in glass syringe that makes it more convenient for patients with reduced handiness or visual impairments. The patient itself can use these autoinjectors without any prior training, which is not the case with reusable autoinjectors. 

Among the various treatment options available for Rheumatoid Arthritis, autoinjectors are considered the most advanced and convenient mode of treatment. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the connective tissue and causes swelling in joints resulting in pain, stiffness, and progressive loss of function. The disease generally affects connective tissues. According to the Global Healthy Living Foundation, around 350 million people have rheumatoid arthritis worldwide. Due to the rise in prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis, the market for autoinjectors is also growing.

Geographical Share

Geographically, the global autoinjectors market is divided into North America, Europe, South America, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa.

North America is expected to hold a significant market share over the period of forecast. According to Food Allergy Research and Education, around 32 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.6 million children under the age of 18, that is one in every 13 children. Furthermore, as per a 2017 report by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 54.4 million adults in the U.S. are suffering from some form of Arthritis. Rising prevalence of anaphylaxis and other allergies in the U.S. leads to faster FDA approvals of new devices, and an increase in chronic and autoimmune disorders is increasing the demand for self-administered drugs.

Europe is estimated to be the second-largest market for autoinjectors owing to growing geriatric population, increasing cases of allergy and autoimmune disorders, favorable reimbursement scenario, and growing prescriptions for adrenaline autoinjectors by physicians. As per the World Allergy Organization, Hungry had the highest prevalence of anaphylaxis in 2017, with around 222 people suffering from food allergies out of 10.2 million population. Approximately 400,000 people in the UK suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. An increase in the number of incidences of allergy cases and prevalence in Europe is expected to boost the autoinjectors market during the forecast period.
