Global Injection Pen Market Overview

The sales of injection pens have considerably picked up in the last couple of years, as they have become a widely accepted treatment method to address a broad spectrum of medical considers.

These include diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, insulin deficiency, and obesity. With the incidence of these ailments surging massively, pen injections are being extensively used as an effective medium of administering treatment to patients.

Injection pens are at present widely used by nearly half of the patient pool suffering from insulin-related problems. This factor also is one of the chief drivers for the expansion of the injection pen market size. With manufacturers shifting their focus towards bringing improvements in injection pen designs, sales prospects are expected to get better for the injection pen market over the coming years.

Market players are currently keen on capitalizing on unmet medical needs of millions around the world. Insulin administration was much difficult prior to 1985. It was both, expensive and a tedious process. Over the intervening years until today, innovations have come into the market in leaps and bounds.

A number of studies highlighting remarkable improvements in injection pens and greater convenience at drug delivery in terms of ensuring dosing accuracy, medication adherence, and patient satisfaction have been published. These have been giving tailwinds to the growth witnessed in the injection pen market.
