Hypodermic Needles Market, By Product Type (Safety Hypodermic Needle and Non Safety Hypodermic Needle), By End User (Diagnostic Centers, Hospitals, and Others) - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Hypodermic needles are hollow needles that are attached with hypodermic syringes for injecting saline solution or solution containing liquid medicines and drugs. These needles are also useful in extraction of fluids such as blood from the body. Hypodermic needles can be used as disposable as well as reusable needles. The reusable needles must be sterilized before use due to their ability to cause various diseases or infections that might transmit if they are not sterile. Disposable hypodermic needles aids an important role in research environments where sterile conditions are required and it also reduces contamination significantly during inoculation of a sterile substrate. Thus, preventing colonization of airborne pathogens on the needles surface. Hypodermic needles are primarily of two types, which include safety and non-safety hypodermic needles. Safety hypodermic needles are the needles on the safety syringe that can be permanently attached or detachable thus preventing healthcare professional from needle stick injuries. Whereas, non-safety hypodermic needles are the conventional syringe needles, which lack safety mechanisms thereby possessing higher chances of needle stick injuries.

Rising demand for vaccines is expected to boost the hypodermic needles market

The factors that are contributing to the growth of hypodermic needles market are rising demand for intravenous vaccines delivery mode. There are numerous vaccines that are recommended for injection into muscle (intramuscularly) although some are delivered through subcutaneously and intradermally. Furthermore, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and rising compliance for safety needles so as to curtail the incidences of needle stick injuries are the other factors that are contributing to the growth of hypodermic needles. However, rising incidence of needle stick injuries and risk of infections associated with administering drugs using hypodermic needles are hindering the growth of hypodermic needles market.
