Global Peripheral Intravenous Catheter Market's Key Growth Drivers: Enhancement in Technology and Rising Healthcare Expenditure


  • Published On : Dec 01, 2015

The global peripheral intravenous catheter market is projected to benefit greatly from the rising demand from emerging economies. Emerging economies with high unmet needs present a good growth opportunity to key players operating in the global peripheral intravenous catheter market. Terumo, Smith Medical, B. Braun Melsungen, Tangent Medical, and Vygon are some of the key players in the global peripheral intravenous catheter market.

Technological Advancement to Propel Global Peripheral IV Catheter Market

The global peripheral intravenous catheter market is driven by the rising number of diseases and infection among people. In addition to this, the enhancement in peripheral intravenous (IV) catheter technology will also boost the global peripheral intravenous catheter market. Moreover, the rising per capita healthcare expenditure will drive the global peripheral intravenous catheter market substantially. The global peripheral intravenous catheter market will also benefit from the rising geriatric population.

Peripheral intravenous catheters are used to infuse fluids and medication into the veins of patients or to draw blood samples. They are inserted into the patient’s body by a needle that can be removed once the catheter is placed properly. After this, a peripheral IV catheter can be attached to the skin by using a medical adhesive tape.

Although the global peripheral intravenous catheter market will expand significantly in the coming few years, it will be suppressed by the complications associated with these medical devices. Some of the complications related to peripheral IV catheters include blood exposure and needlestick injuries. Moreover, the high cost of advanced peripheral intravenous catheters in emerging regions such as MEA and APEJ will challenge the global peripheral intravenous catheter market.
