The insulin therapy segment to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
On the basis of therapy, the pen needles market is segmented into insulin, GLP-1, growth hormone, and other therapies such as osteoporosis, fertility, and obesity. The insulin therapy segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period primarily due to the high and growing diabetic population globally. Since pen needles need to be replaced after every injection, the rising use of insulin pens is a major factor driving the demand for pen needles. Additionally, favorable reimbursement scenario for pen needles in several North American, European, and Asian countries is the other major factor driving the demand for pen needles.
The 8mm segment accounted for the largest share of the pen needles market
On the basis of length, the market is segmented into 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm. In 2018, the 8mm segment accounted for the largest share of the pen needles market. Growth in this market is largely driven by the high adoption of these needles among diabetes patients. However, the usage of these needles is likely to witness a decrease in the coming years due to the increased usage of shorter needles that cause less pain and enable easy insulin administration.
