Published Date: | Report Code : HC1949033


Epinephrine Market growth is expected to gain high momentum during the forecast period due to increasing heart and respiratory diseases. Epinephrine, also known as adrenaline, is a hormone secreted by the adrenal gland in the human body. It helps the human body respond in fight or flight situations of the cells, by increasing the output of the heart thereby increasing the blood flow to the muscles. Epinephrine also acts as a neurotransmitter, which transmits signals across a chemical synapse such as the neuromuscular junction, from one nerve cell to another.

Epinephrine is also used as a medication to treat various conditions such as anaphylaxis, superficial bleeding, and cardiac arrest. Inhaling adrenaline helps treat respiratory conditions such as croup and asthma.

The increasing occurrences of anaphylaxis related to food allergies are driving the epinephrine market. According to the European Academy of Allergy & Clinical Immunology (EAACI), more than 17 million people were affected by food allergies in the year 2013. Moreover, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), food allergies among children have increased by 50% in the past 10 years.

The market is also growing due to the availability of cost-effective epinephrine products. For instance, in December 2016, Mylan Inc. (US) introduced an authorized alternative of Epipen Autoinjectors with a different packaging and same formulation, which was sold at a price 50% lower than other brands.

Epinephrine is also growing its market due to the increasing cases of asthma and other chronic respiratory disease and cardiac arrests due to increased smoking and other unhealthy habits. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2018, more than 1 billion people worldwide were affected by respiratory diseases among which, asthma is a major contributor.

North America leads the global epinephrine market owing to the increase in heart and respiratory diseases. One of the main reasons for this is unhealthy eating habits and increasing obesity in America.
