Key Takeaways of the Graph:
High cost associated with temperature-controlled packaging for temperature-sensitive drugs is expected to hinder the market growth of the ampoules & syringes. In order to maintain specified temperature and conditions of the drug companies required maintenance of various machinery associated with the process which increases the overall cost of the process. This is expected to hamper the market growth.
Increasing cases of needle stick injuries is another major factor expected to restrict the use of syringes which in turn is projected to hinder the market growth of the ampoules & syringes in the near future.
