Peripheral intravenous catheters are medical devices used to infuse fluids and medication directly into the veins of a human body or draw blood samples for testing purpose. Peripheral intravenous catheters are inserted into the patient’s body using a needle which can be removed once the catheter is in place. Thereafter, a peripheral intravenous catheter can be attached to the patient skin by using medical adhesive tape.

This report covers the global peripheral intravenous catheter market performance in terms of revenue contribution. The report includes key trends, drivers, restraints, and opportunities influencing the growth of the global peripheral intravenous catheter market. Impact analysis of key growth drivers and restraints, based on the weighted average model, is included in this report to better equip clients with crystal clear decision-making insights.

The global peripheral intravenous catheter market is mainly driven by factors such as increasing the number of diseases and infection among people, enhancement in peripheral IV catheter technology and increasing per capita healthcare expenditure. Complications arising from peripheral intravenous catheter application including blood exposure and needlestick injuries, and the high cost of advanced peripheral IV catheter in emerging regions such as APEJ and MEA are expected to hamper the growth of the peripheral intravenous catheter market.
