San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 11, 2008
Needles and syringes are amongst the most extensively used medical disposables. Healthcare professionals represent the largest end-use market for syringes, followed by diabetics. A substantial rise in the number of drug addicts has also contributed to the enhanced demand for syringes across the world. Rising life expectancies and growing proportion of the elderly have led to increased demand for healthcare services, and greater need for drugs to be injected. Additionally, a number of newly introduced drugs including DNA based drugs are not available in the form of pills and must be administered intravenously, thereby enhancing the demand for disposable syringes.
United States, Europe, and Asia-Pacific dominate the global syringes market, with more than 80% share for 2008, as stated in a recent report published by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing regional market for syringes, with sales anticipated to reach US$1.5 billion by 2012. Some of the technology developments that have contributed to intensifying competition in the market for needles and syringes across developed countries include improvement in high-speed high volume molding technology and improvement in barrier coating with silicone, teflon and other materials. New product development, particularly with respect to needle-less injectors and safety syringes, is necessitated by the rising instances of needle stick injuries and the hazards associated with it. Hypodermic syringes market represents the leading segment in the United States, capturing over 63% share of the sales in 2008.
A large and growing number of insulin dependent diabetics are propelling the demand for insulin syringes. In Europe, the market for Insulin syringes is projected to reach US$1.5 billion by 2010.
