Pricing Pressures and Slow Product Adoption Leading to Asia-Pacific Vascular Access Market Declines

Share Article

According to a recent report by iData Research, despite slight declines in certain segments, the Asia-Pacific vascular access market presents future opportunities for growth as safety products are increasingly adopted.

Due to pricing pressure on both conventional and safety PIVCs, the market is expected to decline slightly over the forecast period.

According to a recently published report by iData Research (, the Asia-Pacific peripheral intravenous catheter (PIVC) market is valued at nearly $150 million. Growth in this segment is driven primarily by the increasing hospitalization rate in the region, and will hinge upon increasing the rate of conversion to safety PIVCs, particularly in South Korea.

“Due to pricing pressure on both conventional and safety PIVCs, the market is expected to decline slightly over the forecast period,” explains Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData. “Price reductions in response to competitors’ entry to the market and measures by governments to reduce healthcare expenditures are contributing to overall declines.” Unit sales growth is anticipated to remain stable.

Other key findings from the iData Research report entitled Asia-Pacific Markets for Vascular Access Devices:

China will see significant growth over the forecast period as the government aims to expand access to healthcare to a greater portion of the population.

The lack of infrastructure in India will present significant challenges in the expansion of the vascular access market.

The vascular access device market in Japan is the largest in the Asia-Pacific region due to the much higher patient population and the number of hospital beds.

South Korea will be the fastest growing market in the Asia-Pacific region due to a rapidly aging population; demand for dialysis and central venous catheters is growing. The use of implantable ports is also increasing to meet the rising incidence of cancer.
