The global epinephrine market size was valued at USD 1.92 billion in 2023, and is projected to grow from USD 2.12 billion in 2024 to USD 4.60 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period.

Epinephrine is used to treat severe allergic reaction anaphylaxis and asthma attacks. It can be administered through various ways including intramuscular, subcutaneous, intravenous, and inhalation. The burden of these diseases have been increasing at a significant rate globally. This has been fueling the demand for epinephrine

  • For instance, as per data published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2022, asthma affects around 4.0%-6.0% of adults and 10.0% of the children in Germany.

Furthermore, favorable reimbursement policies and increasing focus of market players on new advanced product launches have also been fueling the market growth.

In 2020, due to the sudden outbreak of COVID-19, the market experienced a decline in its value due to the limited number of patients visits to hospitals and clinics to control the spread of the virus. Moreover, the market players also experienced a decline in the sale of their product offerings.

Epinephrine Market Trends

Emergence of Artificial Intelligence to Enhance Epinephrine’s Drug Delivery

The rising prevalence of medical conditions, such as anaphylaxis, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases (asthma), and others, and the increasing need for effective treatment have been fueling the demand for epinephrine.

  • For instance, as per data published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2022, around 20.9% of the population aged 20-44 years suffered from allergic rhinitis in Europe.

  • Moreover, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in August 2023, more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies every year.

To control the rising burden of these diseases and allergies, the demand for technologically advanced AI-enabled auto-injectors and needle-free auto-injectors has increased. The increasing applications of these injectors, apart from anaphylaxis in various medical conditions, such as cardiac arrests, respiratory disorders, and other conditions, are creating more opportunities for the key players to launch the product for various conditions.

Additionally, various key players are adopting growth strategies such as acquisition and collaborations to enhance its offerings in the market that will cater to the unmet needs of the patients.

  • In November 2021, Marathon Asset Management acquired kaleo, Inc. to enhance the development and commercialization of the company’s offerings.

Epinephrine Market Growth Factors

Growing Prevalence of Asthma and Huge Patient Pool Undergoing Treatment to Support the Demand for Auto-injectors

With the rising prevalence of anaphylaxis and asthma globally, the demand for effective treatment is increasing in developing and developed countries. For instance, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2021, around 24.96 million population in the U.S. suffered from asthma.

To cater to this growing demand, major market players are focusing on the introduction of innovative products offering novel routes of administration. These players are now focusing on developing technologically advanced injectors in the market.

  • For instance, in July 2022, ARS Pharmaceuticals and Silverback Therapeutics partnered for regulatory approval and commercialization of Neffy, an epinephrine nasal spray.

Additionally, the market players are focusing on increasing the accessibility to its product offerings through acquisitions and partnerships. In November 2021, Kaleo, Inc. and Marathon Asset Management entered an agreement through which Marathon Asset Management acquired Kaleo, Inc. With this acquisition, the company aimed at expanding its offerings focused on anaphylaxis treatment.

Adequate Reimbursement Policies in Developed Countries to Drive the Adoption of Auto-injectors

As the demand for these injections is increasing rapidly in developed countries, such as the U.S. and European countries, companies are focusing on the launch of new products in the market. Moreover, reimbursement policies are improving for these pens as the cost of these auto-injectors is very high and these pens are inaccessible to many patients. For instance, to make these auto-injectors more accessible for patients suffering from anaphylaxis, Medicare offers coverage for the auto-injector through its Part C and Part D drug plans. Part C or the Medicare Advantage (MA) Plan, was established in 2003, whereas the Part D plan came into effect in 2006.

Despite the higher cost of these auto-injectors in developed countries, the penetration is still comparatively higher in these countries. This is due to adequate reimbursement policies available for auto-injectors.


High Cost of Auto-injectors and Limited Reimbursement in Developing Countries May Limit the Market Growth

With increasing demand for effective treatment options for critical reactions to the allergies such as anaphylaxis, the demand for these injections is increasing rapidly. However, the high cost of auto-injectors is projected to limit the global epinephrine market growth during the forecast period.

  • For instance, a set of two EpiPen auto-injectors costs around USD 650 to USD 700. Similarly, Auvi-Q injectable 2 kits of 0.1 mg cost around USD 664.4.

In addition, in developing countries, most people are not aware of the treatment options available for anaphylaxis, this factor has been limiting the adoption of the drug in these countries.

Moreover, lack of reimbursement policies in developing countries and higher out-of-pocket expenditure associated with the auto-injectors are responsible for lower adoption of these products in the market.
