GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Syringes (Disposable and Reusable) market. The global market for Syringes (Disposable and Reusable) is forecast to reach US$9.3 billion by the year 2015. The market is driven by increasing aging population requiring intensive healthcare, and the rise in the number of drugs to be injected. Additionally, development of a number of new drugs, including DNA-based drugs, which are not available in pill form and are required to be injected is also propelling the market for syringes. Growth in needle stick injuries and the rising demand for safety syringes, plus the increasing popularity of pre-filled syringes represent the other growth drivers.

Syringes (Disposable and Reusable): A Global Strategic Business Report

The market for needle syringes is very dynamic. Intense and increasing competition among companies in the market and comparatively low profit margins has brought about the need for creative strategies for product differentiation to market these products. Worldwide, syringes are used widely in hospitals, in immunization programs, in intravenous drug usage and in daily insulin by people with diabetes. The market, in recent years, has seen increasing popularity of pre-filled syringes, as they are easy-to-use and reduce the risk of cross-contamination. Use of auto-disable syringes has been made mandatory in several countries, and is expected to become mandatory in rest of the world, in the next few years.

Risk of cross contamination is expected to propel demand for safety syringes. Safety syringes are expected to impact the sales of traditional syringes as increasing number of caregivers shift to safer alternative. In addition, traditional syringes are also facing threat from the rising demand for needle-less systems. Increased interest in needle-less injectors is a result of growing incidence of needle stick injuries and the hazards associated with it. An estimated one million needle stick injuries happen to healthcare workers in the US every year, often resulting in fatal diseases such as hepatitis.

The US constitutes the largest regional market for syringes (disposable and reusable), accounting for more than 30% of the global market, as stated by the new market research report on Syringes (Disposable and Reusable). Europe trails the US in terms of sales of syringes, while demand is expected to emanate mainly from developing markets, including Asia-Pacific, The Middle East, and Latin America. Asia-Pacific is forecast to register the fastest growth of more than 4.0% during the analysis period. Product segment-wise, Hypodermic Syringes represent the largest product segment, followed by insulin syringes. However, demand is expected to be fastest from intraligamentary syringes, which is expected to register a CAGR of more than 5.0% over the analysis period. Angiographic syringes, Catheter syringes, and Irrigating syringes are the other fast growing product segments.
