Needle-Free Injectors Market Set to Surpass US$ 36.3 Bn by 2031 amid Soaring Demand for Vaccines Worldwide: Future Market Insights

ESOMAR-certified market research firm Future Market Insights (FMI) has forecast the Needle-Free Injectors Market to exhibit a year-on-year (YoY) growth of 11.9% in 2021, reaching a valuation of around US$ 12.3 Bn by the end of the year.

Owing to the increasing healthcare expenditure and rising prevalence of chronic diseases, the demand for needle-free injectors is set to rise at a CAGR of around 11.4% between 2021 and 2031, surpassing a valuation of around US$ 36.3 Bn by the end of 2031.

Increasing cases of needle prick injuries, high prevalence of chronic diseases, growing demand for self-injection devices, and various advantages associated with needle-free injection technology are some of the factors driving the needle-free injectors market. Needle-free injectors also are ideal for people who suffer from needle phobia.

As per the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), hospital-based healthcare personnel experience around 385,000 needle-stick/sharps injuries each year (2015). Needle stick injuries can lead to serious or potentially fatal infections due to potential exposure to blood borne pathogens such as hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, and Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Initiatives launched by organizations such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), National Institution for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to reduce needle stick injuries and the subsequent risk of blood borne pathogen transmission are positively impacting the needle-free injectors market.

Sales of needle-free injectors skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many pharmaceutical companies started administrating SARS-CoV-2 vaccine by using needle-free injection systems. For instance, in September 2021, Pharmajet, announced that its partner, Scancell has selected its devices to administer two SARS-CoV-2 DNA vaccine candidate, SCOV1 and SCOV2. The vaccines will be exclusively administered using the Pharmajet Tropis and Pharmajet Stratis Needle-free injection systems.

Growing popularity of needle-free injectors in cosmetic industry will further accelerate growth in the market. As per FMI, the cosmetic segment is set to witness maximum growth at a CAGR of 12.6% during the forecast period.

North America will continue to dominate the needle-free injectors market with around 42% of total market share. This can be attributed to the increasing investment in research and development, presence of leading market players, rise in diseases like diabetes, and growing preference for noninvasive procedures.

“Rising demand for self-injection drugs and increasing health consciousness among people will accelerate the growth of needle-free injectors market during the assessment period. Besides this, new product launches and approvals will play a key role strengthening footprint of various market players,” says the FMI analyst.
