Syringes (Disposable and Reusable): A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
Follow us on LinkedIn – Syringes are used widely in hospitals, in immunization programs, in intravenous drug usage and in daily insulin by people with diabetes. The global market for syringes is highly dynamic, with intense competition and relatively low profit margins driving companies to adopt creative strategies to ensure product differentiation in the market. The syringes (disposable and reusable) market is witnessing a trend towards pre-filled and needle-less syringes. Pre-filled syringes are finding increased use due to their ability to eliminate risk of cross-contamination, and other risks, such as that of drug counterfeiting and dosing error, that may occur with ampoules or vials. Furthermore, use of auto-disposable syringes has been made mandatory in several countries and is expected to become mandatory in the rest of the world, in the next few years. The focus is also on developing needle-less injectors due to the rising numbers of needle stick injuries. More than a million cases of needle stick injuries are estimated to occur in the US alone annually resulting in fatal diseases such as hepatitis.
Needle-less syringes are expected to impact the sales of conventional syringes as they are safer to use and reduce the risk of contamination and associated complications involved with needle-stick injuries. Another factor propelling product development is the difficulty encountered with the disposal of conventional needle syringes The Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act in the US gave way to other countries imposing similar regulations, thereby increasing the demand for safety syringes.
As stated by the new market research report on Syringes (Disposable and Reusable), the US constitutes the largest regional market.
