Global Special Purpose Needles Market: Restraints

Increasing developments in needle-free injection technology is expected to hinder growth of the global special purpose needles market. For instance, in December 2019, Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation partnered with National Medical Products Inc., a developer of J-Tip Needle Free Injector, to provide patients quality care through virtually pain-free anesthetic.

Moreover, injections procedures may lead to multiple temporary or permanent side effects such as itchy skin, backache, nausea, loss of bladder control, abscess formation, and nerve damage. This in turn has led to increasing preference for alternative procedures such as oral drug administration and other traditional treatments including Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, and acupuncture.

Global Special Purpose Needles Market: Opportunities 

Increasing preference for pain-free needles is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the market. Diabetes patients require a regular dose of insulin, which increases demand for needles that offer less or no discomfort.

Moreover, increasing concerns regarding disposal of contaminated needles and other medical waste has led to stringent regulations on disposal of medical waste. Therefore, markets may focus on developing biodegradable needles.
