The global syringe market was valued at US$ 14,839.3 Mn in 2021 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 25,498.0 Mn by 2028 at a CAGR of 8.0% between 2022 and 2028. The global syringe market is experiencing strong growth due to the rise in prevalence/incidence of chronic diseases worldwide and technological advancements in syringes. Moreover, growing geriatric population and increasing awareness among people is expected to boost the growth of the market. However, factors such as availability of alternate drug delivery methods and increasing incidence of needle-stick injuries are expected to hamper growth of the global syringe market.

Global Syringe Market: Regional Insights

Based on geography, the global syringe market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

Among regions, North America is expected to gain highest share in the market over the forecast period owing to the increase in prevalence of chronic diseases and growing geriatric population in the region. For instance, increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases has led to an increase in the use of syringes, especially disposable syringes. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are the leading causes of death and disability in the U.S. Six in ten Americans live with at least one chronic disease, like heart disease and stroke, cancer, or diabetes.

Asia Pacific is also expected to witness robust growth in the global syringe market due to the rise in prevalence of chronic diseases and rising adoption of safety syringes in the region. For instance, non-communicable diseases, including cancer, are emerging as major public health problems in India, which in turn is expected to increase demand for syringes in this region. According to the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR), the number of people in India suffering from cancer is expected to rise to 29.8 million in 2025 from 26.7 million in 2021.

SYRINGE MARKET

Global Syringe Market Drivers:

Rise in prevalence/incidence of chronic diseases around the world is expected to augment growth of the global syringe market over the forecast period. For instance, the use of syringes, especially disposable syringes, is increasing with the increase in incidence or prevalence of chronic diseases worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases account for most NCD (non-communicable disease) deaths, or 17.9 million people annually, followed by cancers (9.3 million), chronic respiratory diseases (4.1 million), and diabetes (2.0 million including kidney disease deaths caused by diabetes).

Technological advancements in syringes are expected to propel the growth of the global syringe market over the forecast period. For instance, in September 2022, Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) announced the launch of the next-generation glass prefillable syringe (PFS) that sets a new standard in performance for vaccine PFS with new and tightened specifications for processability, cosmetics, contamination, and integrity. Moreover, the BD EffivaxTM Glass Prefillable Syringe has been designed in collaboration with leading pharmaceutical companies to meet the complex and evolving needs of vaccine manufacturing.

Global Syringe Market Opportunities:

Increase in adoption of injectable drugs across the globe is expected to provide significant growth opportunities for players in the global syringe market. For instance, there is an increase in demand for prefilled syringes as they have a high level of accuracy, making them safer to use. In October 2022, Hikma Pharmaceuticals PLC launched Succinylcholine Chloride Injection, USP, in prefilled syringe (PFS) form. The 100mg/5mL PFS has been launched in the United States. Succinylcholine Chloride is a medication used in hospitals for general anesthesia, to facilitate tracheal intubation, and to provide muscle relaxation during surgery or mechanical ventilation.

Growing geriatric population around the world is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global syringe market. For instance, aging increases the risk of chronic diseases, and with the rise in geriatric population, the demand for syringes is also increasing rapidly. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 85% of older adults have at least one chronic health condition, and 60% have at least two chronic conditions. Moreover, over 70% senior citizens in India have a chronic illness. This in turn is is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the market.

Global Syringe Market Trends:

The recent trend in the global syringe market is rise in use of prefilled syringes due to increase in prevalence/incidence of chronic disease. Prefilled syringes have the high level of accuracy, which makes them safer to use. Worldwide, the use of injectable drugs has increased due to the rise in prevalence/incidence of chronic disease around the world.  This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period, driving the growth of the global syringe market.

Moreover, outbreak of COVID-19 (global pandemic) has increased the use of disposable syringes across the globe. With the rise in cases of COVID-19 worldwide, the demand for safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is also increasing with a rapid pace, which in turn has increased the usage of disposable syringes around the world. This trend is also expected to continue during the forecast period, driving the growth of the global syringe market.

Global Syringe Market Restraints:

Availability of alternate drug delivery methods is expected to hamper growth of the global syringe market over the forecast period. For instance, injections are more effective than drugs but there are various alternative drug delivery methods such as nasal, oral, rectal, buccal, sublingual, vaginal, otic route, ocular route, transdermal, cutaneous, and many others. This in turn is expected to hinder growth of the global syringe market.  

Increasing incidence of needle-stick injuries is expected to hamper the growth of the global syringe market during the forecast period. For instance, needle-stick injuries are known to occur frequently in healthcare settings and can be serious. Needle-stick injuries are wounds caused by needles that accidentally puncture the skin. This in turn is restraining the growth of the market.
