About the Report

Over the years, there has been considerable technological developments in syringes and cannulas. Major technological developments related to disposable syringes such as the introduction of needle-stick safety-equipped devices, advanced lubrication technology, and usage of multi-chamber syringes have raised demand for disposable syringes across regions.

In addition, development of various safety devices such as passive needle guards with a plastic shield and advanced retractable needle systems is largely addressing the issue of needle-stick injuries. Advancements associated with syringes reduce the dual problem of reuse and accidental needle-stick injury.

For instance, syringes with automated retraction technology eliminate the risk of a contaminated needle-stick and sharp injuries to healthcare workers. In addition, automated retraction of the needle effectively precludes any reuse of the device. Thus, such recent technological advancements are a major driving force for rising demand for syringes and cannulas.

In its revised study, Fact.MR offers insights about key factors driving demand for syringes and cannulas. The report tracks global sales of syringes and cannulas in 20+ high-growth markets, where North America, Europe, and Asia are large markets.

Syringes are the most common product among all, with increasing demand arising for vaccinations. The report also analyses the impact COVID-19 had on the medical device industry in general, and the global syringes and cannulas market in particular.

This edition brings readers up-to-date with key market developments, providing analysis on how manufacturers and other stakeholders are reacting to change.

Key industry metrics have been captured, and their impact on sales has been analyzed. The study also expands on the previous competitive landscape section, and readers will get to know the key strategies of established players as well as new entrants.

Future Outlook Looks Much Brighter than Previous Years

Increasing number of infectious diseases and communicable disorders is expected to boost demand for disposable as well as reusable syringes. There has been significant increase in the number of vaccination drives conducted by government and non- government organizations, leading to market growth for syringes and cannulas.

Also, increasing number of medical procedures requiring cannulas is expected to drive demand further.

Improvements in healthcare infrastructure in under-developed regions is leading to increasing number of clinics. Rising number of medical device manufacturers in countries such as India and China will lead to market growth for syringes and cannulas.

According to Fact.MR’s analysis, the syringes and cannulas market expanded at a 3% CAGR from 2015 to 2019.

Rising prevalence of chronic disorder and pandemics such as COVID19 are expected to increase demand for syringes and cannulas across regions. Leading biopharmaceutical players are focussed on developing vaccines for the disease.

Hence, with increasing demand for vaccines and commencement of global vaccination drives, demand for syringes is at an all-time high. Countries such as India are expected to attract high demand for syringes due to lower cost and high manufacturing capacities.

Several medical device manufacturers have started manufacturing and stockpiling syringes for future demand.

On the other hand, there has been significant decline in patient-hospital visits with reduction in number of procedures, leading to negative impact on market growth in case of cannulas. Overall, Fact.MR expects the global syringes and cannulas market to progress at an impressive 4% CAGR through 2030.

How is Increasing Adoption of Smart Syringes Impacting Demand?

WHO launched a policy on injection safety to help countries tackle the issue of unsafe injections that led to the spread of a number of deadly infectious diseases globally As per data collected by WHO in 2014, approximately 1.7 million people were infected with hepatitis B virus, 315,000 people were infected with hepatitis C virus, and as many as 33,800 people with HIV virus through an unsafe injections.

New smart syringes are recommended by WHO for injections into the skin or muscles. Smart syringes also have impressive features, such as some models contain a weak spot in the plunger that causes the syringe to break if the user pulls back the plunger after the injection, while some have a metal clip that blocks the plunger after the injection.

In some models, the syringe retracts into the syringe barrel at the end of the injection. Smart syringes also have features that prevent reuse. Such innovations are expected to further drive demand for syringes and cannulas over the coming years.
