Conference Documentation: Pre-Filled Syringes

Emulating on the success of 7th annual event, SMi is proud to announce the return of the elite 8th annual Pre-Filled Syringes meeting to London in 2016!

The device and drug delivery market is continuing to grow exponentially with the likes of pre-filled pen systems, auto-injectors and patch pumps continuing to pave the way to enhancing drug delivery of biologics. Figures show that 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 and will account for nearly $6 Billion in revenue by the end of 2020.*

Although glass continues to remain the gold standard for pre-filled syringes, the proportion of plastic based pre-filled syringes is expected to increase by 5% between 2015 and 2020*, due to concerns of glass breakage and plunger failure. It’s time to start reviewing packaging and device design in more depth, from technology and market drivers to challenges and strategies within the supply chain.
