Some of the key pointers on which injection pen manufacturers are closely working on include ease of cartilage replacement, injection convenience, insulin-dose setting dial use, and prominence of audio clicks. While these factors are anticipated to improve the performance and quality of insulin injection pens, the demand is expected to move in the upward direction around the world. The rise in the number of individuals suffering from diabetes and the growing adoption of injection pens, particularly in home care settings, are primary factors expected to propel the demand for injection pens during the forecast period.

At the back of these factors, along with the launch of user-friendly, cost-efficient, and sleek injection pens, the global injection pen market is expected to reach US$ 6 Bn mark by the end of 2030.

Significant Rise in Demand for Insulin Pens to Aid Market Growth

Over the past few years, insulin pens have garnered immense popularity around the world and as per current observable trends, insulin pens are rapidly replacing conventional manual vial and syringes that are used for insulin injections. Key factors that are currently driving the demand for insulin pens include ease of use, user-friendliness, and high accuracy in insulin delivery. In addition, the availability of insulin pens in durable or pre-filled designs wherein an interchangeable insulin cartridge is used, and the availability of a range of insulin formulations are some of the other factors that are expected to fuel the growth of the global injection pen market. Moreover, as increasing number of manufacturers continue to introduce insulin pens with color codes to enable patients to distinguish between various insulin formulations, patient pen-selection errors have reduced considerably. While these factors are projected to play a key role in driving the sales of insulin pens in the forthcoming years, the rise in the prescription of injection pens around the world will provide an impetus for growth of the global injection pen market.

Insulin pens are extensively used as an insulin delivery device in several regions of the world, including Europe. The adoption of insulin pens in the U.S. is relatively lower than the aforementioned region largely due to the lack of awareness and the significantly high prescription costs of insulin cartridges in comparison with insulin vials.
