How Will the Double Chamber Prefilled Syringes Market Evolve?
As the administration of drugs and time-consuming processes such as cleaning, siliconization, and sterilization became a long-standing challenge in the nursing centers, the quest for ready-to-use syringes engendered the evolution of double chamber prefilled syringes. The injection of the drug with a little ‘twist and push’ started gaining double chamber prefilled syringes the desired momentum, in exchange for its efficiency; following which, the sales of double chamber prefilled syringes closed in on US$ 1,400 Mn in 2018.
Rigorous research and development efforts, as put by manufacturers, have enabled double chamber prefilled syringes to outperform its traditional rival -vials, with an ability to control wastage of drugs and offer greater shelf life. With the stringent quality filters set by governments of developed countries, in the form of regulatory norms, manufacturers operate under the pressure and develop safe double chamber prefilled syringes, which has been propelling the shift of end users from hospital to home-based care. Considering the crucial parameters, trends, and challenges, PMR’s study estimates that the double chamber prefilled syringes market will record nearly 9% CAGR over the course of the forecast period 2019-2029.
Glass to Maintain Gold Standard for the Development of Double Chamber Prefilled Syringes
Since manufacturers seek a non-reactive and heat and chemical resistant material for the manufacturing of double chamber prefilled syringes, glass maintains the gold standard. However, the advancement towards plastic is gaining eminence, as robustness wins over breakability, during the transportation of the double chamber prefilled syringes. By 2029, plastic is likely to remain the high-growth material segment and will account for 2/5th of the total market share with firsthand concerns of plunger failures prevailing in the landscape.
As self-administration highly dictates the sales of double chamber prefilled syringes, manufacturers expend their efforts in making their products available to their clientele. Being a primary distribution channel, hospital pharmacy accounts for the sales of nearly half of the double chamber prefilled syringes. However, retail and online pharmacies, in turn, occupy a significant share, with the latter surpassing the former and turning into a high-growth distribution channel.
As trends of customization make inroads, the double chamber prefilled syringes industry is poised to offer personalized drug delivery systems to penetrate deeper into the end users’ space. Though the very characteristic of the design of double chamber prefilled syringes is capable of reducing drug wastage, its high price tag causes a reluctance among end-users towards its adoption. Add to that the complex manufacturing process, and the delivery drug systems turn more expensive. Henceforth, end users still maintain a strong grip on the vials, on account of its cost-efficiency, which remains an unsettled challenge for double chamber prefilled syringes manufacturers.
