Plastic Syringes Market Projected Growth Rate (2022-2032)

4.4% CAGR

Since ancient times, syringes have remained one of the most essential healthcare products used by medical professionals. They are used to inject liquids and semi-solid compositions into the body of humans and animals.

Initially glass syringes were mostly used for injecting medicine and other healthcare compositions into the bodies of humans and animals. However, with the passage of time and advancements in plastic technology, high grade plastic syringes began to replace glass syringes.

Plastic syringes offer various benefits which makes them ideal for adoption across healthcare industry. These syringes are inexpensive, user friendly, and possess high impact resistance. They are designated as class IA medical devices and are frequently used for the parenteral administration of drugs. 

Polypropylene and polyethylene are the most commonly utilized plastic materials for manufacturing plastic syringes. Both syringes and their materials have to fulfill various tests including transparency, water permeability, leakage and cytotoxicity before they are put into use.

Which Factors are Expected to Augment Growth in the Plastic Syringes Market

Rising prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases worldwide, growing demand for disposable medical devices, surge in the number of surgeries, increasing health awareness among people, and inexpensive nature of plastic syringes are some of the major factors expected to boost the growth of disposable syringes market during the forecast period.

Plastic syringes have become ideal replacements for glass syringes due to their various attractive benefits. These syringes are easy to manufacture and significantly eliminate the need for sterilization.

With rapid surge in infectious diseases such as hepatitis, AIDS, tuberculosis, COVID-19 etc. there has been a substantial increase in the sales of plastic syringes. These syringes are being increasingly utilized for injecting vaccines and several other healthcare products into human and animal bodies. Increasing incidence of these diseases will therefore continue to generate growth opportunities for the manufacturers of plastic syringes during the forecast period.

Similarly, rising threat of infections during injections is creating the ground for the use of disposable medical devices like plastic syringes and the trend is likely to escalate during the forecast period.

Another factor fueling the adoption of plastic syringes is their affordability and impact resistance nature. Plastic syringes are generally inexpensive and can withstand major mechanical impacts with ease.

Furthermore, rapid expansion of healthcare industry across the world coupled with growing popularity of pre-filled syringes and increasing adoption of plastic syringes for administering various formulations such as antibiotics, vitamins, steroids, analgesics, tranquilizers etc. will continue to boost market growth in the future.
