Research and Markets: Prefilled Syringes Market (Glass and Plastic) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Volume, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mg3f8r/prefilled) has announced the addition of the "Prefilled Syringes Market (Glass and Plastic) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Volume, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.

Prefilled syringes constitute one of the fastest growing segments of the injectable drug delivery devices market. The various advantages associated with prefilled syringes over conventional delivery systems have been the primary foundation for their success to date and are expected to continue to drive market growth during the forecast period 2013 to 2019. These advantages include ease of administration, improved safety, reduced risk of contamination and accurate dosing.

Depending on the type of material used to manufacture the syringe barrel, prefilled syringes are available mainly in two types, glass prefilled syringes and plastic (polymer) prefilled syringes. Although the industry is witnessing increasing use of polymer by many manufacturers for syringe manufacturing, glass is still considered as the gold standard and will continue to lead the market in terms of revenue as well as volume. This is attributed to the fact that changing the perception of manufacturers as well as healthcare practitioners from glass to plastic will be a gradual process. The market for glass prefilled sringes is expected to lose some of its share at the end of the forecast period, which will be eaten up by the market for plastic syringes that will grow at a CAGR of 25% from 2013 to 2019.


Rapid growth in the biologics market, technical advances in the sector and rising preference for self-administration using prefilled syringes, autoinjectors and pen injectors are the major factors driving growth of the global market for prefilled syringes. Currently more than 60% of the drugs under clinical development are biologics and are likely to be approved for parenteral administration. This is because most of the biologics including monoclonal antibodies, vaccines and anticoagulants, are large molecules which need to be administered via parenteral route to achieve the desired therapeutic effect. Likewise, technical advances related with siliconization and needlestick safety and prevention are also expected to drive growth of the market for prefilled syringes.

Europe claimed the largest regional share for prefilled syringes in terms of revenue as well as volume (unit consumption). However, during the forecast period, the North American market for prefilled syringes will exhibit the highest market growth at a CAGR of 15%. The Asia-Pacific region is more known as a follower rather than a leader in terms of development and adaptation of newer technologies.

Becton, Dickinson & Company, Gerresheimer AG, Nipro Corporation, Schott AG and Stevanato Group are the key players dominating the global market for prefilled syringes. The top five market players together contributed to more than 85% of the total market revenue in 2012, indicating the oligopolistic nature of the competition in this market.
