Synopsis: A pre-filled syringe is a medical syringe that comes pre-filled with a specific dosage of medication. Representing one of the fastest growing segments of the injectable drug delivery ecosystem, pre-filled syringes offer significant benefits over the traditional ‘vial and syringe’ format, by increasing dosing accuracy, safety and convenience. 
In addition, pre-filled syringes also offer a variety of economic benefits to pharmaceutical companies including a reduction in drug overfill and waste, which increases the saleable yield of the API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient).

SNS Research estimates that the market for pre-filled syringes will account for nearly $4 Billion in revenue by the end of 2016. Despite challenges relating to drug stability, manufacturing and competition from other drug delivery technologies, the market is poised for significant growth in the coming years.

Key Findings:
The report has the following key findings:
  • SNS Research estimates that the market for pre-filled syringes will account for nearly $4 Billion in revenue by the end of 2016. Despite challenges relating to drug stability, manufacturing and competition from other drug delivery technologies, the market is poised for significant growth in the coming years.  
  • In 2015, plastic based platforms accounted for just over 9% of the wider pre-filled syringes market. Over the next four years, the proportion of plastic pre-filled syringes is expected to increase by 6%, as drug developers seek to reduce the likelihood of breakage, while increasing the functionality of their products.
  • Many pre-filled syringe manufacturers now offer integrated automatic needle shielding or retractable needle options. In addition, specialist manufacturers have developed dual and multi chambered syringes to cater for drugs that must be reconstituted at the point of delivery.
  • Pre-filled pen systems and auto-injectors will grow at a CAGR of 21% over the next four years.
