A syringe is a medical device that is used to inject or withdraw fluids into or from the body. It generally consists of a hollow needle attached to a cylinder with a plunger. It is widely used with vials, ampoules, and intravenous bags. Syringes are commonly used for injections of vaccines, medications, fluids and blood samples. The global syringe market is driven by the growing prevalence of chronic diseases, rising demand for home-based healthcare, and increasing number of vaccination programs worldwide.
The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer and cardiac diseases globally is a major driver of the syringe market. Diabetes alone is projected to affect over 200 million people by 2045, according to the International Diabetes Federation. This necessitates regular administration of insulin and other drugs using syringes. Additionally, the rising geriatric population is also propelling the syringe market growth as aged people are more prone to chronic illnesses. Furthermore, advancements in syringe technology such as safety syringes that reduce needle stick injuries are promoting their adoption. Several government initiatives aimed at immunizing more population are augmenting the demand for vaccination syringes. However, the availability of alternative modes of drug delivery such as injectable pens and pumps can hinder the syringe market expansion. Stringent regulatory guidelines for syringe manufacturing may also impede the market growth.
The syringe market is segmented into hospitals, blood collection centers, diabetic care centers, veterinary hospitals and others. The hospital segment dominates the syringe market owing to high volume of syringe consumption in hospitals for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. Hospitals account for over 40% of market share due to large patient pool and extensive use of syringes for various medical procedures and drug administration.
