On the other hand, the preference for alternative modes of drug delivery, poor reimbursement in developing countries, and needle anxiety are expected to restrain the overall market growth. Misuse of insulin pens and reuse of pen needles are the challenges faced by the market. The growing preference for biosimilar drugs and emerging markets are areas of opportunity in the market.
