Global Epinephrine Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 – 2033

The global epinephrine market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 4 Billion by the end of 2033 by growing at a CAGR of ~12% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2033. Further, the market garnered revenue of ~USD 1 Billion in the year 2022. The growth of the market can be attributed to the worldwide growing prevalence of several allergic reactions, along with the surge in neurological disorders. It is observed that every year, around 6 million people worldwide die from neurological disorders. In addition to this, the rising proportion of individuals who are prone to several allergies is another major factor that is estimated to boost the market growth throughout the forecast period.


In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the market growth of epinephrine include the upsurge in food allergy stances throughout the world. For instance, in the United States, approximately 33 million individuals are affected by food allergies. Furthermore, epinephrine is used as the first line of treatment to help reverse the effects of anaphylaxis. Individuals suffering from anaphylactic shock frequently use auto-injectors, as they are easy administer by non-medical personnel. Therefore, the rising occurrence of anaphylaxis cases is another significant factor that is estimated to fuel the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Global Epinephrine Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Upsurge in Chronic Respiratory Disorders - Respiratory disorders refer to a class of pathogenic conditions such as COPD, and asthma, that affect respiration in living organisms. In higher organisms, respiration allows for gas exchange. In a gas exchange, the organism absorbs oxygen and exhales carbon dioxide. The respiratory tract, which comprises the alveoli, bronchi, bronchioles, pleura, pleural cavity, trachea, and breathing muscles and nerves, is where respiratory disease develops itself. Therefore, the global increase in chronic respiratory disorders is expected to boost the growth of the global epinephrine market. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), 3.23 million people died from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the third most common cause of mortality in the world in 2019.

  • Growing Occurrence of Several Types of Allergic Reactions - For instance, every year, more than 51 million individuals in the United States deal with various allergies. These allergic reactions are the region's sixth most common cause of chronic illness.

  • Escalation in Cardiac Arrests – It is observed that, in the United States, there are over 357,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) each year, with nearly 89% of them life-threatening.

  • Increasing Development in Auto-Injectors – For instance, until now, nearly 81 auto-injectors have been developed by more than 22 drug manufacturers across the globe. For use with auto-injectors, about 49 medicines are created as combination products. Out of these, disposable auto-injectors make up nearly 61% of the total. Reusable auto injectors with various doses are being developed at a remarkable rate.

  • Increasing Healthcare Expenditure – As per the World Bank data, in 2019, global healthcare expenditures expanded by 9.83%.


  • High Cost of Auto-InjectorsWorldwide rising demand for effective treatment for several allergic reactions is propelling the demand for these auto-injectors. However, the advanced and popular versions of these auto injectors such as needle-free auto-injectors and AI- enabled auto-injectors are high in cost. Therefore, the high cost of these injectors is estimated to hamper the market growth during the projected time frame.
  • Lack of Availability of Approved Medicines
  • Inadequate Reimbursement in Developing Nations

Market Segmentation

The global epinephrine market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into cardiac arrest, anaphylaxis, superficial bleeding, respiratory disorders, and others. Out of these five types of segments, the anaphylaxis segment is anticipated to hold the highest share over the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the rising development of technologically advanced products from the key players, and the globally increasing prevalence of anaphylaxis in pediatrics as well as in adults. For instance, in a clinical study, it was observed that the prevalence of anaphylaxis in children ranges from 1 to 762 per 100,000 person-years. This prevalence rate varied throughout continents; such, in Europe it ranged from 2.4 to 762 per 100,000 person-years, whereas it ranges between 0.8 to 72 per 100,000 person-years in North America. Moreover, the anaphylaxis incidence rate in the pediatric population ranges from 0.05% to 1.7% throughout the world.

The global epinephrine market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by type into epinephrine prefilled syringes, epinephrine auto-injectors, ampoules & vials, and others. Amongst these segments, the epinephrine auto-injectors segment is expected to garner a significant share. The growth of the segment can be attributed to their easy availability, easy to use, and great efficiency in treating acute anaphylaxis. On the other hand, the prefilled syringes segment is projected to witness notable growth during the forecast period, owing to its surging demand in hospitals and clinics for treating several illnesses, coupled with its rapid responsive rate in the treatment of emergency allergic reactions.
