Increased Preference for 90 – 500 mL Prefilled Formalin Containers from Contract Research Organizations
The 90 – 500 mL prefilled formalin vials are gaining popularity in the U.S. market. Growing incidence of cancer especially due to longer exposure to formalin at hospitals and laboratories have increased the demand for prefilled formalin vials, which limit the formalin levels. Moreover, ease of formalin usage as tissue fixative in cancer diagnostic in histopathology and ready availability of prefilled formalin vials through traditional supply chains are leading to strong adoption of prefilled formalin vials among end users.
In the medical ambulatories including ambulatory surgical centres where small biopsies are performed, the problems associated with formalin usage is solved primarily by using prefilled formalin vials or tubes. Varied applications of prefilled formalin vials in healthcare industry and availability of prefilled formalin vials of different volume capacities at cheap prices is expected to lead to promising growth of the prefilled formalin vials market.
Usage of ready-to-use prefilled formalin vials over the new upgraded commercial alternatives - new formalin-free fixatives also reduce the indirect cost associated with conventional laboratory-based histopathological diagnosis.
High Risk of Occupational Exposure to Formalin is Increasing Cancer Incidence across North America
Exposure of anatomists, biologists, histology technicians, botanists, medical personnel and disinfectant makers to formalin in the healthcare industry is the most common type of occupational exposure in the U.S. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), the trend of occupational exposure occurs in all workplaces in the U.S. and Europe, thus becoming the major cause of cancer and other acute diseases.
Increase in the number of prefilled formalin vials in the market in order to overcome this alarming situation of occupational exposure has led to growing commercial availability of low price prefilled formalin vials and containers. Moreover, ready availability of prefilled formalin vials in different volume ranges including 90 – 500 mL vial types and 40 – 60 mL prefilled formalin vials in highest demand is also pushing other key players to be a part of the prefilled formalin vials market.

Increasing Discretionary Funding for Cancer Research
The prefilled formalin vials manufacturers are offering their products to end-use facilities through retail and distribution channels. The vertical integration strategy of such manufacturers in prefilled formalin vials market has given them a competitive edge over standard prefilled formalin vials manufacturers. Also, governments in developed countries such as the U.S. provide funds for cancer research to aid in diagnosis and treatment.
Clinical trials are also funded by governments to support companies in developing effective diagnostic tests for cancer. In April 2016, the U.S. Government allocated US$ 5.2 Bn for the National Cancer Institute (NCI)—a Federal Government agency—for cancer research and training. The budget for cancer research increased by 5.3% in comparison to the last year.
Clinical trials on cancer patients requiring repetitive diagnosis has been conducted by NCI in order to check cancer prognosis. Formalin finds major application in cancer research as it is used as tissue fixative to preserve biopsy samples. Thus with the increased funding in cancer research, an upsurge in the demand for prefilled formalin vials is registered in prefilled formalin vials market across globe.
Growing Impact of Cancer Awareness Programs by Governments
Government initiatives to enhance availability of cancer diagnosis and treatment is expected to fuel the growth of prefilled formalin vials market over the forecast period
On January 20, 2016, the U.S. government announced establishment of Cancer Moonshot to accelerate cancer research in the U.S. The initiative aimed to make more therapies available to the patients to improve and detect cancer at early stage, thereby increasing demand for prefilled formalin vials, elevating revenue in prefilled formalin vials market.
Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN)—a national network that supports cancer research and related studies—supports Screen for Life: National Colorectal Cancer Action Campaign and scientific studies to determine restraints of colorectal screening and also provides funding to state programs to implement specific colorectal cancer strategies.
