Intravenous Solutions Market, By Solution Type (Crystalloid, Colloid, Free H2O solutions, and Blood products), By composition (Normal Saline, Hypertonic Saline, Lactated Ringer’s, Dextran, D5W, and others), By End User (Hospitals, Clinics, Ambulatory surgery centers, and others) And By Geography- Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2026

Intravenous solutions are the chemically prepared fluids, which are administered in the body through venous circulation to maintain or replace the lost body fluid level. There are various types of IV solutions that have different effects on a human body. Majority of intravenous solutions constitute of solvent and solute out of which solvents are sterile water and solutes are electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and chloride. Intravenous solutions market is expected to grow at high rate over the forecast period, owing to increasing diseases causing fluid loss, dehydration and malnutrition, increasing rates of chronic diseases, and surgeries.

Increasing prevalence of Diarrhea is expected to boost the growth of intravenous solutions market in near future

According to World Health Organization (WHO) in 2017, diarrhea is the second largest cause of death around the globe. Around 1.7 billion people suffers for diarrhea every year and causes around 525,000 deaths. IV solutions are given to the patients suffering to maintain their body fluid level as diarrhea causes dehydration, malnutrition, and excess fluid loss from the body. Thus, increasing prevalence of diarrhea is expected to rise demand for IV solutions and fuel its market growth in near future. According to WHO in 2017, around 180,000 people suffer from burns yearly and between 20 and 50 million people suffers from severe injuries and blood loss due to road accidents. Burns, shocks and blood loss due to trauma or road accidents causes severe fluid loss from body, which can be retained by giving IV solution to patients. Increasing incidents of burns, shocks and excess fluid loss due to trauma and accidents are expected to boost the growth of IV solutions market in near future. Rising prevalence of chronic diseases and surgeries are also expected to fuel IV solution market as IV fluids are given to the patients suffering from chronic diseases for recovery after the surgery. However, the presence of domestic players which provide low quality products that does not provide optimum results are hampering the market growth.
