The growing preference for biosimilar drugs is another factor providing a wide range of growth opportunities for key players in the market.
The standard pen needles segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market in 2018
On the basis of type, the market is segmented into standard and safety pen needles. In 2018, the standard pen needles segment is expected to account for the largest share of the pen needles market. Growth in this market is attributed to the low cost of standard pen needles. The low cost of standard pen needles has also led to their widespread adoption in emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil where the presence of safety pen needles is very low to almost negligible. On the other hand, as standard needles are not equipped with safety shields, the risk of accidental needlestick injuries with the use of these needles is high.

The insulin therapy segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
On the basis of therapy, the market is categorized into insulin therapy, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) therapy, growth hormone therapy, and other therapies.

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.
