Global Pen Needles Market 2017-2021
About Pen Needles
The delivery of injectable medications into the body with pen devices are done with the help of pen needles. Advances in technology are causing a shift in end-user preference from invasive procedures to minimally and non-invasive procedures. Pen needles are mainly used by individuals with diabetes who require multiple daily injections. Pens are preferred for drug delivery due to its user-friendliness and ease of use compared to syringes. The high cost of pens compared to syringes is the main challenge to the adoption of these devices. North American countries such as the US and Canada are the major revenue contributors due to the favorable reimbursement policies for pen needles.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global pen needles market to grow at a CAGR of 10.06% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is technological advances in non-invasive techniques. The incidence of diabetes is rising significantly, which drives the demand for pen needles market. The development of novel non-invasive routes of insulin administration promises to further improve diabetes management. The key barriers to initiating insulin therapy include the need for frequent insulin injection, fears that insulin injections will be painful and difficult to administer, and concerns about hypoglycemia and weight gain.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increasing preference for pen needles over syringes and vials. Pen needles are an integral part of diabetes treatment for patients who require injectable therapies. These pen needles are used for delivering specific drugs or collecting samples such as fluids and cells from organs or lumps. They are available with various advanced features, shapes, and sizes. The global market for pen needles is showing a steady growth owing to an increasing older population, and the shift toward less and non-invasive procedures is increasing its popularity worldwide. Pen needles have several advantages over the traditional vial-and-syringe method of insulin delivery including improved patient satisfaction and adherence, greater ease of use, superior accuracy for delivering small doses of insulin, greater social acceptability, and less reported injection pain.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is shortage of endocrinologists. The prevalence of the non-communicable diseases such as diabetes is increasing. In 2014, according to OECD, 380 million people had diabetes worldwide. However, there is a severe worldwide shortage of endocrinologists, which has been exacerbated by the exploding growth in diabetes and obesity. Currently, only 6,869 endocrinologists are present in the US. Although this marks an increase over past decades, it is insufficient to serve the demand. Therefore, the shortage of experts increases the risk of error and negligence in the use of pen needles.
