The analysts forecast the Global Epinephrine Auto-injector market to grow at a CAGR of 13.34 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing prevalence of allergies. The Global Epinephrine Auto-injector market has also been witnessing the development of chlorofluorocarbon-free epinephrine auto-injector inhalers. However, the adverse side-effects of epinephrine drugs could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The report, the Global Epinephrine Auto-injector Market Report, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market in the Americas and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global Epinephrine Auto-injector market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The inhalers used for the treatment of asthma patients in the past combined a mixture of epinephrine powder and CFC as an aerosol. However, the government in the US imposed a ban on the use of CFC as a propellant in inhalers. Primatene Mist, the only FDA-approved over-the-counter epinephrine inhaler containing CFC, was pulled by the FDA on December 31, 2011. Primatene Mist was the only FDA-approved epinephrine inhaler available in the market for the temporary relief of occasional symptoms of mild asthma. Hence, vendors are increasing their investment in R&D to develop a CFC-free epinephrine inhaler using hydrofluoroalkane as a propellant.
According to the report, though epinephrine is produced in the body, chemically synthesized epinephrine drugs are used in the treatment of anaphylactic shock that occurs in people who are suffering from allergy, cardiac arrest, and asthma. The increase in the number of people who are allergic to food, food additives, dust, and insect venom has led to an increase in the use of epinephrine drugs. This is one of the major factors that drive the growth of the Global Epinephrine Auto-injector market.
Further, the report states that one of the main challenges in the market is that epinephrine drugs can cause adverse side effects such as vomiting, cardiac arrhythmia, hyperuricemia, lactic acidosis, pulmonary edema, and cerebral hemorrhage. Hence, physicians prefer to prescribe immunotherapy and other alternative pharmacotherapy drugs for the treatment of allergies.
