Global Intravenous Stopcock Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 424.7 million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period (2023-2030).
Analysts’ views on Global Intravenous Stopcock Market:
A stopcock is a type of medical device and ball valve used for intravenous administration. The flow of fluid is directed into the blood vessels with an intravenous cap. There are different types of shut-off valves such as burette shut-off valves, vacuum valves and needle valves. These medical devices are primarily designed to control gas or liquid flow with an on/off controller. A closure clip is used in intravenous extensions to facilitate control of the fluid pathway during fluid or drug administration. However, access to a patient's intravenous line through an open faucet or multiple hubs can increase the risk of bacterial contamination and infection. Stopcocks have been used in infusion therapy for decades, but studies have confirmed concerns about the risk of intraluminal contamination and fluid flow dynamics associated with stopcocks.

Global Intravenous Stopcock Market - Regional Analysis
Among region, North America is estimated to hold a dominant position in the global intravenous stopcock market over the forecast period, owing to increasing treatments of products. For instance, on May 19, 2021, an article published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, explained Treatment of Phlebitis Secondary to the Insertion of a Peripheral Venous Catheter, hygienic hand washing, and usage of clean gloves for both punctures and equipment, hubs, stopcocks, and bio-connectors handling. Nursing interventions to prevent phlebitis and ensure a proper catheter use included those related to the maintenance of intravenous therapy, asepsis, and choosing the dressing. With regard to the nursing interventions to treat phlebitis, these were focused on vigilance and caring and also on the use of medical treatment protocols. It is not necessary to wear sterile gloves if the previously disinfected area is not touched again during the technique. Using disposable tourniquets can help reduce Peripheral Venous Catheters contamination rates.
Global Intravenous Stopcock Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe, and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries, such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others faced problems regarding transportation of drugs from one place to another.
For instance, according to an article published by National Center for Biotechnology Information, on April 26, 2022 explained, in the four-chamber view, a right-to-left shunt was sought by injecting 9.5 mL of gelatin solution aerated with 0.5 mL of room air through two syringes connected to a three-way stopcock. Up to three successful contrast studies were performed per patient. The shunt was quantified according to the number of bypassed bubbles as follows: small, moderate and large.

Global Intravenous Stopcock Market: Key Developments
On April 13, 2021, Mais India Medical devices, a medical disposable equipment manufacturer company, India explained for the simultaneous administration of two or more fluids or medicines to patients, the concept of Stopcock was introduced to provide proper control over the flow of direction. A stopcock is a kind of valve used to control the flow of direction of liquids or gases. They are widely available in different designs or forms among which 3-way stopcock is most commonly used for synchronous and continuous infusion of two fluids.
Global Intravenous Stopcock Market: Key Trends
Introduction of newer instruments for intravenous stopcock
Introduction of newer and more efficient instruments to boost up techniques can drive growth of market. On March 15, 2023, Niir Project Consultancy services, Indian based company which provide technical consulting services announced start a Manufacturing Business of 3-way Stop Cocks. The basic design of a three-way stop click is simple, but the science behind it is more complex. The valve inside the shut-off valve is made of a ball or cap that turns with a handle. There is a hole in the center of the ball or cap through which liquid can pass if it is directed into one of the ports. The faucet valve is also designed to create a tight seal when closed, preventing liquid leakage. This is important because many liquids that flow through a stopcock can be dangerous or infectious.
Global Intravenous Stopcock Market: Restraints
Contamination risk with intravenous stopcock
The sterility is expected to hamper the global intravenous stopcock market growth. For instance, according to an article published by National Center for Biotechnology Information, on February 3, 2023, explained the use of an antimicrobial dressing reduces skin colonization at the peripheral intravenous catheter insertion site and may provide an additional benefit by reducing the risk of local infection and/or catheter-related bloodstream infection. Protection of PIVC cells is important to form a barrier to infection and prevent transmission. Strong ligamentous adhesion is an important part of catheter fixation. To reduce the risk of contamination, protection should be done in a standardized way. Extensions increase safety by minimizing movement at the installation site.
To counterbalance this restraint, a robust protocol should be controlled by sterility in intravenous stopcock.
