A syringe is a simple piston pump consisting of a plunger that fits tightly in a tube. The plunger can be pulled and pushed along inside a cylindrical tube (the barrel) allowing the syringe to take in and expel a liquid or a gas through an orifice at open end of the tube. The open end of the syringe may be fitted with a hypodermic needle (a hollow needle commonly used with a syringe to inject substances into the body or extract fluids from it), a nozzle or tubing to help direct the flow into and out of the barrel.
Disposable Syringes are being used by doctors to inject medicines through intravenous or intramuscular ways for the treatment of diseases & also by research & development personnel. Disposable syringes are made of plastic material and are used in the field of medical and veterinary science. Due to their availability in sterilized condition, ready to use, and cost effectiveness, disposable syringes are fast replacing the age-old glass syringes.
Disposable syringes commonly are used in modern medicine for the injection of drugs and vaccines or for the extraction of blood. Among the common uses of disposable syringes are the injecting of insulin by a diabetic person and the administering of a local anesthesia by a dentist. A medical syringe that is used to give shots to more than one person without being properly sterilized is a potential source of disease. This can be an especially pressing concern in poor or undeveloped areas, where an injection often cannot be given under ideal medical conditions.
The syringe market is expected to witness a robust growth owing to several factors, such as the rise in the demand for pre-filled syringes, growing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, infectious diseases and cardiovascular diseases and the increase in the usage of Botox for therapeutic applications. Moreover, the increased adoption of inject table drugs, technological advancements in syringes, the increase in the geriatric population, growing number of vaccination and immunization programs are expected to drive the volume growth over the next few years. According to WHO estimates, around 16 billion injections are administered globally on an annual basis. On the other hand, the rise in the incidence of needle-stick injuries, a high cost associated with safety syringes, and disposable syringes are likely to hinder the growth of the syringe market globally.
The Disposable Syringes market was valued at USD 7.10 billion in 2019 and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period and is anticipated to reach USD 12.91 Billion by 2027. The growth of the market is attributed to growing prevalence of chronic diseases, especially diabetes, an increase in the usage of Botox, increased adoption of inject table drugs, technological advancements in syringes, an increase in the geriatric population, a growing number of vaccination and immunization programs. Based on the WHO estimates, 16 billion injections are administered each year globally. A Disposable Syringes is a medical tool used to administer injections of intravenous drugs into the patient’s blood stream or to draw blood sample.
The rise in the population of geriatric patient, rising rate of diabetes across the world is another healthcare crises that drives the market growth. In addition, the convenience and practical approach in equipment handling is anticipated to boost the market during the forecast period. As a whole any entrepreneur can venture in this project without risk and earn profit.
