Disposable Syringes Market: Quantitative Market Analysis, Current And Future Trends

Around 2 million people get infected with diseases such as HIV and hepatitis each year due to reusable syringes. Disposable syringes prevent the plunger being pulled back after an injection so that it cannot be used again. Thus, use of disposable syringes is gaining wide popularity in hospitals in every part of the world. Expected advantages are ensuring sterility and preventing the spread of infections from patient to patient. Parallel to this, there is also the need to improve disposal facilities at hospital. Across regions, demand for plastic-made syringes and cannulas is high, with a market share of close to 95%.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the market quiet significantly. The pandemic has surged demand for syringes, which, in turn, has resulted in shortage of syringes. Currently, with the introduction of vaccines for COVID-19, demand for syringes has surged at an unprecedented rate. Many countries are focusing on carrying out vaccination drives, which is leading to the shortage of syringes. For instance, there is growing fear in Japan that millions of doses of the Pfizer vaccine purchased by the government could get wasted due to shortage of special syringes that maximize the number of shots from each vial. Thus, the pandemic is putting great pressure on manufacturers to ramp up the production of syringes.
