LONDON, June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- INTRODUCTIONOver the years, the self-injection devices market has grown into

a promising segment of the pharmaceutical industry. The domain is presently characterized by the presence of advanced technology platforms and innovative devices, offering a variety of user-friendly drug delivery solutions. One of the major driving forces
behind the growth in this field is the rising incidence of chronic clinical conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and diabetes. Download the full report: https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/3895333 Although various pharmacological interventions are available for the treatment of these conditions, they require parenteral administration, frequent hospital visits, and are associated with multiple concerns, such as dosing and medication errors, risk of microbial contamination and needlestick injuries. However, therapies developed in combination with self-administration enabling devices have witnessed high adoption rates and have actually resulted in marked improvements in adherence to prescribed therapeutic regimens. In addition, such devices have been widely utilized in the treatment of emergency conditions such as anaphylaxis and other allergic disorders.Since the introduction of the first autoinjector device in 1980s, their numerous benefits, such as ease-of-use, reduced chances of dosing errors, integrated safety mechanisms, and almost negligible risk of needlestick injuries, have been widely recognized among consumers and healthcare service providers. Autoinjectors are also considered to be potential life cycle management tool. Drugs nearing patent expiry can be developed for delivery using an autoinjector and retain market exclusivity as a combination product. Lyophilized Enbrel® is a well-known example; it was reformulated for delivery as a liquid formulation in the Sureclick™ autoinjector, extending its patent age by almost 11 years.It is worth highlighting that such devices have captured the interest of several stakeholders in the industry. Various initiatives are underway to further improve safety, add better features (such as controlled-release capabilities) and make these devices more patient-friendly. In fact, between January 2013 and December 2017, close to 3,800 patents were filed in this domain, indicating the rapid pace at which research is being carried out. We believe that such efforts are likely to boost the overall growth of this market in the coming years.SCOPE OF THE REPORTThe 'Global Autoinjectors Market (2nd Edition), 2018-2030' report provides a comprehensive analysis of the current state of the autoinjectors market and the likely future evolution of these devices over the next decade.

Over 85 autoinjector devices (33% reusable / 67% disposable), including variants of individual products, are presently being manufactured by close to 20 companies. 22% of these devices are designed to deliver a variable dose of drug.2. 75 drug-autoinjector combination products are commercially available; amongst these, 30% received marketing approval between 2015 and 2017. Over 30 devices have been approved to cater to the rising demand for convenient delivery options for the treatment of chronic clinical conditions, such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis / psoriasis. These are followed by devices that are used to administer drugs for the treatment of anaphylaxis, organophosphate poisoning, migraine, growth hormone deficiency and diabetes. In addition, products are also approved for multiple other indications, such as cardiac arrhythmias, anxiety disorders, opioid overdose and systemic lupus erythematosus.3. Notable examples of such combination products include (no selection criteria) Auvi-Q® (Kaléo Pharma), Avonex Pen® (Biogen Idec), BYDUREON BCise (AstraZeneca), EpiPen® (Mylan / Meridian Medical Technologies), Imitrex STATdose Pen® (GlaxoSmithKline) ORENCIA® ClickJect™ (Bristol-Myers Squibb), PRALUENT® (Sanofi), TRIPLEPEN HAD (ChemProtect SK), Trulicity® (Eli Lilly / Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma) and VIBEX® Sumatriptan (Antares Pharma / Teva Pharmaceutical).4. A number of novel technology platforms are presently being utilized for the development of autoinjectors with advanced features, such as integrated sharps handling and controlled rate of injection. Examples of such technologies (no selection criteria) include Breeze™ technology (Nuance Designs), Depot Control technology (Union Medico), VapourSoft™ and ASI® technology (Bespak), and Rotaject™ Pressure Release technology, NIT™ technology and Pushclick™ technology (SHL Group).5. As a result of the widening research interest, close to 3,800 patents have been filed recently. A detailed analysis of these patents indicates that automated self-injection devices, with advanced features, are gradually becoming mainstream. Some of these features include push-on-skin release, one-handed operation, twist and mix mechanism, automatic reconstitution / priming, anti-roll, compact and sleek design, LCD screens, and Bluetooth and other connectivity platforms. Examples of autoinjectors that have been designed to be connected to smart devices include (in alphabetical order) GROWJECTOR®2 (JCR Pharmaceuticals), Flexi-eMU (Elcam Medical), RebiSmart™ (EMD Serono) and YpsoMate® Smart (Ypsomed).6. A comprehensive analysis of several marketed / pipeline products suggests that over 100 drugs (not currently available in autoinjectors) are suited for delivery via autoinjectors. Most of these drugs target chronic conditions, require frequent dosing and are available for delivery via subcutaneous / intramuscular routes. We believe that these clinical candidates, if evaluated with autoinjectors, are likely to contribute substantially to the market's evolution in the mid-long term.7. As more drug-device combination products get approved for a diverse range of indications, we expect the market to steadily evolve over the next decade. North America (primarily the US) and Europe currently capture the largest share (close to 75%) of the market. Launch in emerging regions, such as India and China, availability of such devices for other chronic (in addition to multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis) and emergency indications (in addition to anaphylaxis), introduction of life cycle management projects for drugs nearing patent expiry are some of the opportunity areas wherein the companies are likely to focus on.Download the full report: https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/3895333 About Reportbuyer Reportbuyer is a leading industry intelligence solution that provides all market research reports from top publishers For more information: Sarah Smith Research Advisor at Reportbuyer.com Email: sarah@reportbuyer.com Tel: +1 (718) 213 4904 Website: www.reportbuyer.com
