Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, there is an oligopoly in the global pre-filled syringes market where only a few vendors such as BD, Gerresheimer, and SCHOTT holds a large market share. But the competition among the existing vendors is high as each one of them compete to gain a larger market share. The companies are focusing on strategic expansions, partnerships, acquisitions, and technological advances to expand their market size. There is a demand-supply gap in the industry, due to which the suppliers are ramping up their production capacities by double-digits.

The pre-filled syringe manufacturers supply non-sterilized bulk pre-filled syringes to contract fillers or pharma companies. Many of the suppliers are packaging only glass pre-filled syringes, which have been in use much longer than plastic pre-filled syringes. However, the trend is now shifting towards the manufacture of plastic pre-filled syringes.

Sanofi, GlaxoSmithKline, and Pfizer are the major buyers of pre-filled syringe that are used for the delivery of insulin, anticoagulants, and vaccines. Many underdeveloped and developing countries rely on developed countries to meet their demand for pre-filled syringes. For instance, India meets most its pre-filled syringes demand via imports from the countries such as the US and France,” says Ramakrishna Edupulapati, a lead analyst at Technavio for orthopedics and medical devices research.
