The disposable autoinjectors segment had the largest share of the global market of autoinjectors in 2019. Disposable autoinjectors are preferred mostly owing to their ease of use and also the presence of the built-in glass syringe eliminates the necessity of manually filling the glass syringe, which makes it more suitable for patients with visual impairments or reduced dexterity.

Autoinjectors Market Share

By Application

Based on Application, the market is segmented into Anaphylaxis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis and other Applications. In 2019, Anaphylaxis segment had the largest share of the autoinjectors market. This is mainly accredited to its high occurrence. The growing incidence of rheumatoid arthritis also drives the demand for autoinjectors worldwide. As per the CDC, around 43.7 million adults which comprise 22.7% of the total population of the US are affected by some form of arthritis such as RA, lupus, gout, or fibromyalgia annually.
