An Auto-injector is basically a medical tool of pen shaped designed to deliver a dose of a particular drug to the patient. The drug is delivered by inserting the syringe needle at a desired site of injection, and on push of button. These auto injectors are easy to use and are intended for self-administration by patients, without relying on trained personnel.  Auto-injector is significantly used for various mild and severe allergic reactions. If allergic reaction are not cured, then it can even lead to life-threatening condition such as anaphylaxis. Further, the treatment of diseases like multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis is being performed with the auto injector device. The injecting site of that particular drug is dependent on the nature of the drug, but it is normally taken through the intramuscular route. 

Auto injectors Market Outlook

The auto injector market is mainly driven by the factors such as increase in anaphylactic incidences, rising awareness among patients, and patient’s preference to choose self-administration of injections. Further, increased level of the usage of the device in case of severe pain and government’s support for allowing the marketing of the instrument in various locations will further boost the growth of the market. In addition, advancement of auto-injector devices to provide more access to the patients is expected to drive growth of the market. However, the high cost of these devices and its substitute product including oral tablets and injections can act as a restraint for the market growth.

Increasing prevalence and incidences of anaphylaxis and food allergies around the world is majorly responsible for the growth of the global auto-injectors market. The World Allergy Organisation (WAO) estimate of allergy prevalence of the whole population by country ranges between 10 - 40%. Allergy is a very common ailment, affecting more than 20% of the populations of most developed countries. It is most common chronic disease in Europe. More than 150 million Europeans suffer from chronic allergic diseases and the current prediction is that by 2025 half of the entire EU population will be affected. This in turn, promotes the growth of the auto-injector market. 

Auto injector Market Segmental Overview
