Infusion pumps and devices are used to deliver nutrients or medications such as insulin or other hormones, antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs, and pain relievers into a patient's body. Based on the type of infusion, pumps and devices can be classified as either general or specialty infusion pumps. General pumps and devices are categorized as large volume infusion pumps, ambulatory and disposable pumps, syringe infusion, and chemotherapy pumps. Specialty infusion pumps and devices are used during the treatment of diabetes, analgesics, oncology, blood disorders and nutrition. Smart pump systems, the latest innovation in the specialty market, are endowed with software that can alert users to potential errors.
According to a new technical market research report, Infusion Pumps and Devices: Technologies and Global Markets from BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com), the global market for infusion pumps and devices was valued at $17.8 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach $18.7 billion in 2013.
