Special Purpose Needles: A Global Strategic Business Report

Global market for specialty needles is influenced by the strong emphasis on user safety and growing demand for cost-effective solutions. Other factors impacting demand include advancements in product designs, favorable demographic trends, increased emphasis on preventing hospital acquired infections (HAIs), and improving healthcare infrastructure and services across developing countries. Growing awareness of diseases such as HIV/AIDS, HCV, gonorrhea, and typhus besides new legislations related to worker safety are providing a boost to the demand for safety needles. Focus on infection control as a means to cut healthcare costs implies that hospitals and other healthcare facilities are increasingly looking at disposable needles as a necessity. Market growth is also attributed to the rise in surgical procedures and the trend towards home healthcare.

While the basic design of needles remains unchanged since their introduction, some of the recent innovations include thinner and shorter needles, angled bevels, needle siliconization, and ultra-thin walls. The pen needles market is expected to gain traction from the introduction of smaller sized needles and prefilled syringe pen injectors that are a crossover between manual pen injectors and autoinjector systems. Hypodermic needles represents the largest product market. Some of the new technologies being developed to make injections relatively pain-free with reduced risk of infection include micro-needles, ceramic hybrid needles, five-in-one vaccine, and microjet system.

As stated by the new market research report on Special Purpose Needles, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market buoyed by the rapidly evolving healthcare sector in developing Asian economies, implementation of stringent infection control standards and steady rise in medical tourism which necessitates the provision of superior healthcare services.
