Rapid Infuser Market Key Factors

To learn more about this report, request a free sample copy

Rapid infusion devices have witnessed increased adoption in the recent years due to growing demand for emergency blood infusion in trauma and surgery cases. Rapid infusion devices offer standardized and controlled infusion, thus, helping medical staff focus on critical patient care. Developed markets in North America and Europe currently account for majority of demand for rapid infusion devices. However, Asian markets are expected to witness highest growth during the forecast period supported by rising medical infrastructure, healthcare expenditure and greater focus on patient safety.

Rising incidences of internal hemorrhage

The rate of internal hemorrhage associated injuries has witnessed a steady rise over the past decade  due to traumatic injuries caused in accidents or non-traumatic hemorrhaging occurring owing to medical conditions such as gastrointestinal bleeding, uterine bleeding post childbirth, ruptured ectopic pregnancies, and others. Rapid administration of blood products is critical in managing massive hemorrhage to prevent fatality. Traditionally blood transfusion has been a lengthy process involving manual extraction and administration of packed red cells from banks. With delayed intervention, the rate of mortality increases substantially. Rapid infusers address this challenge effectively. These devices can automatically extract blood from bags/containers and infuse it into the patient in a controlled manner but at a much faster pace compared to traditional methods. Some advanced rapid infuser models have the capability to accurately measure blood components being administered and regulate the flow and volume infused. This ensures blood is supplied to the patient efficiently without any delays due to automated processes but also in a safe controlled method.

Rising adoption of patient blood management practices

Over the past few years, patient blood management has emerged as a pivotal strategy adopted across hospital settings to improve patient safety, clinical outcomes and optimize transfusion practices. It involves applying evidence-based medical and surgical concepts designed to maintain hemoglobin levels and optimize hemodynamic status without exposing patients to unnecessary allogeneic blood transfusions. Traditional blood transfusion practices relied on manual methods to extract and infuse blood, which were cumbersome and time consuming. With patient blood management gaining international recognition, rapid infusion technology addresses one of the core challenges viz timely fluid resuscitation.

Market Challenges – High prices of sophisticated dedicated devices

Global rapid infuser market faces several key challenges. The smaller medical clinics and practices may want access to rapid infusion technology for stabilizing patients before emergency transport but cannot always afford sophisticated dedicated devices. Product uptake could also be slowed by the need for clinical staff training on new equipment and the added steps and supplies associated with rapid infusion systems compared to gravity-fed methods.

Market Opportunities – Growing clinical evidence supporting benefits of rapid infusers

As the global population ages and more patients develop conditions requiring fluid resuscitation, such as sepsis, demand for rapid infusion capabilities increases. Manufacturers may gain traction by offering portable, easy to use systems at lower price points. Expanding clinical evidence demonstrating the benefits of rapid fluid administration in improving patient outcomes could also increase urgency for hospital investment, thus, creating lucrative opportunities for market development over the projected period.

Insights, By Product Type: Technical Superiority Fuels Demand for Trolley Mounted Rapid Infusers

Product Type segment is sub-segmented into handheld devices and trolley mounted devices. Trolley mounted devices segment is estimated to hold 54.7% share of the market in 2024. Trolley mounted devices offer stable and consistent CO2 flow rates during treatments, ensuring optimal absorption. Trolley mounted infusers offer more stability and accuracy during fluid administration compared to handheld variants due to their integration with medical carts or stands. The steady platform ensures drip rate is maintained precisely as prescribed by physicians. This is crucial in emergency response and critical care settings to quickly resuscitate patients without delay. Trolley mounted designs also allow for larger fluid bags that can hold more volume, extending treatment time between replacements. Their portability within hospital facilities lets clinicians transport patients without disturbing intravenous lines. Overall, trolley mounted rapid infusers have gained preference in clinical environments for their reliability and safety attributes that benefit both providers and patients undergoing high-acuity medical care.

Insights, By Application: Rise in Trauma and Emergency Cases

Application segment is sub-segmented into trauma & emergency, anesthesia, surgical care, labor & delivery, intensive care, and others. Trauma & emergency segment is expected to hold 32.8% of the market share in 2024. Rapid fluid resuscitation is imperative in trauma and emergency rooms dealing with critically ill or injured patients. Speedy intravenous access and controlled fluid delivery are indispensable for stabilizing conditions like hemorrhagic shock, sepsis, major burns, or blood loss from physical trauma. Clinicians rely on rapid infusers to quickly restore circulatory volume and normalize vital signs. The high-pressure environments of trauma and emergency units especially value how rapid infusers streamline urgent therapy administration versus manual methods. This makes trauma and emergency the dominant application segment.

Insights, By End User: Rise in Ambulatory Surgery Centers Application Drives Growth

End User segment is sub-segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, specialty clinics, and others. Ambulatory surgery centers  segment is expected to hold 34.7% of the market share in 2024. Rapid infusers enable ambulatory surgery centers to expeditiously treat same-day surgical patients recovering from procedures. Their fast fluid delivery gets patients feeling well enough to be safely discharged in a timely manner, opening beds for new admissions. This boosts patient turnover and facility revenue. Rapid infusers also reduce nursing workload versus traditional gravitation methods, minimizing additional labor expenses. As ambulatory surgery grows to accommodate more cost-effective outpatient options, infrastructure investments like rapid infusers help maximize financial viability for surgery centers. Their benefits in terms of better recovery outcomes, higher patient throughput, and staff efficiency make rapid infusers a desirable purchase.
