Innovative Manufacturing Technologies

Since the mid-2000s, the pre-filled syringe market has grown rapidly. An increasing number of drugs have been developed and presented in a subcutaneously injectable format because of the significant benefits in comparison to traditional glass primary packaging, such as vials or ampoules. This trend is fuelled by an ageing population and, as the number of chronic disease sufferers increases, so do therapies.

Pre-filled syringes particularly when used with auto-injectors enable people with lifelong conditions to safely and conveniently self-administer their medications, thus improving their quality of life and treatment compliance. This also positively contributes to decreasing overall healthcare costs by shifting patient care from hospitals to the home.

Ready-to-use (RTU) sterile syringes account for approximately 80% of the global consumption of these primary containers. The remaining 20% are bulk ones which still need to be washed, siliconised, assembled and sterilised before they can be processed on a fill and finish line. Although there are still firms sourcing the latter, there is a clear trend toward switching to RTU syringes and, therefore, outsourcing operations to primary packaging suppliers.
