DUBLIN, February 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Special Purpose Needles – Global Market Trajectory and Analysis” report has been added to from offer.

Global Special Purpose Needles Market to Reach US$15.9 billion by 2026

Global Special Purpose Needles Market Estimated at US$9.5 billion in 2020, is expected to reach a revised size of US$15.9 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% over the analysis period.

The growth of the medical needles market is mainly driven by factors such as increasing incidence of infectious diseases, aging population and increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes, l increasing volumes of surgery and increasing prevalence of spine-related disorders.

Other factors impacting demand include advances in product design, favorable demographic trends, increased emphasis on prevention of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), and improved healthcare infrastructure and services. in developing countries. The market is mainly driven by concerns from the healthcare industry regarding needlestick injuries and worker safety.

Needle technology has also advanced over the past few decades, moving from large syringe needles that had to be sterilized and sharpened by hand, to pen needles and other smaller needles that are thin, small, and designed to provide better penetration with less friction and more glide. The needles are redesigned to allow for light insertion force, improved control, superior precision and smoother penetration with less tissue displacement.

Hypodermic Needles, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.6% to reach US$5.5 billion at the end of the analysis period.

After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and the induced economic crisis, the growth of the Pen Needles segment is readjusted to a revised CAGR of 7.8% for the next 7-year period.

This segment currently accounts for a 21.1% share of the global specialty needle market. Hypodermic needles are hollow needles used for subcutaneous injections and for aspiration. The needles are made of stainless steel and have a durable, sharper penetrating surface for easy hypodermic access.

Pen needle systems and pens, already the preferred mode of insulin delivery for diabetics in developed countries, are gaining ground in global markets. A pen needle comprises a hollow needle embedded in a plastic housing. Advanced pen needles are packed with sophisticated features and offered in different shapes and sizes depending on end-use requirements.

Segment of blood collection needles to reach $1.5 billion by 2026

Blood collection needles are used to perform a venipuncture for the purpose of taking blood samples. They typically include an attached pivoting shield, which the user activates after venipuncture, to prevent accidental needlestick injuries.

In the global blood collection needle segment, United States, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will result in the CAGR of 5% estimated for this segment. These regional markets representing a combined market size of US$925.5 million in the year 2020 will reach a projected size of US$1.3 billion at the end of the analysis period.
