Market Report Description

The Global Wearable Injectors Market size is expected to reach $12.9 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 9.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

Wearable injectors (WIs) are drug delivery systems that anchor to the body and release significant amounts of medicine subcutaneously over time. Wearable injectors provide medications at predetermined intervals over a particular timeframe. Wearable injectors allow patients to self-inject medication, alleviating the strain on doctors and healthcare personnel. Wearable injectors are important in the treatment of diabetes and a variety of chronic conditions, including cancer, respiratory ailments, and arthritis. Because they do not require additional equipment or a competent person to give medications, wearable injectors are more affordable than IV infusions.

The presence of the growing healthcare industry has aided sales in the wearable injectors market. It is critical for individuals with chronic conditions to have appropriate treatment as well as dosage at regular intervals. Wearable injectors have evolved as a self-administered and self-scalable technology that can assist patients in ensuring that their medication dosage is taken on a regular basis. Wearable injectors have gained popularity due to the requirement to provide the correct volume of medical fluid. It is critical for medical practitioners and healthcare specialists to educate the public about the benefits of employing newer technology like wearable injectors and other gadgets. In the coming years, the increased occurrence of chronic conditions that mandate the utilization of seamless technologies would be a major driver of the market demand.

The rise in the prevalence of chronic conditions, the shift toward new drug delivery technologies, and improvements in wearable injector development are all factors driving market expansion. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 129 million non-institutionalized civilian people were diagnosed with at least one chronic illness in 2018. Furthermore, as people's concerns about immunological disease develop, the wearable injector industry would grow. Moreover, the rising need for effective, quick, and precise treatment outcomes has prompted the development of improved wearable injectors, moving the market forward.

Wearable Injectors Market - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic surged the demand for wearable injectors. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, medical priorities have been reoriented across healthcare facilities, with treatment for COVID-19 patients taking priority. Wearable injectors offer a viable platform for closing the gap between in-clinic treatment and auto injectors. Wearable injectors addressed major loopholes in healthcare infrastructure as well as connected health services. As patients with cardiovascular, chronic pulmonary and neurological diseases begin to manage the long-term repercussions of the disease, an increase in chronic ailments resulting from COVID-19 morbidity may partially fuel expansion in the adoption of wearable injectors. To protect themselves from COVID-19 exposure at clinics, patients with chronic diseases are requesting a transition from clinic to at-home drug delivery.

Market Growth Factors

Rising consumer preference for home care solutions

The COVID-19 pandemic's uncertainty has driven demand for various therapeutics as well as wearable drug delivery technologies. Healthcare systems around the world took steps to postpone treatments for diseases like cancer to prevent the spread of the infection and safeguard high-risk patients from infection. The hazards for individuals receiving care rose as the pandemic began. Hospitals, which serve the bulk of patients, also became high-risk areas during the epidemic. To address these issues and provide appropriate care to patients suffering from various ailments, a movement from hospital-based treatment to home-based care has occurred.

Rising demand for mAbs and biologics

Biologics and mAbs are mandated to be supplied via the parenteral route, due to which, an increasing focus on their usage to treat diseases like cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer would create major development prospects for wearable injectors such as subcutaneous, intravenous, or intramuscular delivery. In addition, a significant number of biologics were in development in recent years, and the number of biologic pharmaceuticals in development continues to rise exponentially. MAb-based biotherapies currently account for a significant proportion of 100 medications.

Market Restraining Factors

Lack of favorable reimbursement policies

In the healthcare infrastructure of any nation, the government plays a crucial role in the development of assets. In addition, the government is also responsible for making various advanced healthcare devices accessible to people. However, there is a lack of favorable reimbursement policies for making wearable injectors accessible to people in several countries. Wearable injectors are not reimbursed in a number of underdeveloped nations. Wearable insulin pumps, for example, are not paid in several countries, and there are no precise rules for their use on prescription. Patients with Type 1 diabetes in numerous countries must pay for their insulin pumps as well as refills and supplies on their own. The absence of reimbursement has a direct impact on access to and acceptance of wearable injectors.

Wearable Injectors Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2021

Therapy Outlook

Based on Therapy, the market is segmented into Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease, Immuno-oncology, and Others. In 2021, the Cardiovascular diseases segment witnessed a significant revenue share of the wearable injectors market. The increasing growth of the segment is attributed to the rising adoption of unhealthy lifestyles among people all over the world. CVDs (cardiovascular diseases) are a group of heart and blood vessel problems. Heart attacks and strokes are frequently sudden occurrences caused by a blockage that prohibits blood from reaching the heart or brain. A build-up of fatty plaques on the inner walls of the blood arteries that supply the heart or brain is the most common cause. Strokes are caused by blood clots or bleeding from a blood artery in the brain.

End User Outlook

Based on End User, the market is segmented into Hospitals & Clinics and Home healthcare setting. In 2021, the hospitals & clinics segment held the highest revenue share of the wearable injectors market. The growth of the segment is surging due to the rising disposable income of the people.
