The availability of user-friendly, disposable, and low-cost elastomeric infusion pumps

Companies in the elastomeric infusion pumps market are focused on manufacturing user-friendly elastomeric infusion pumps with flow sensors and regulators for the accurate measurement of drug delivery rates. Moreover, some companies, as a part of their strategy to capture a larger market share, are launching elastomeric infusion pumps with additional features.

For example, Fluonic. Inc. launched SURE+ product, a fully disposable pump that can regulate drug flow. SURE+ is built on the framework of a common inexpensive elastomeric infusion pump, with the addition of a fluonic flow sensor and regulator.

Rapid industrialization in emerging economies in the East African belt, Eastern Europe, and Asia Pacific regions is supporting the production and R&D of low-cost medical devices. The availability of a well-developed manufacturing infrastructure, low-cost labour, and trained technicians in countries such as China are also among factors supporting growth of the market.

Companies that manufacture elastomeric infusion pumps, such as Baxter and B. Braun Melsungen AG, have R&D centres as well as manufacturing divisions based in emerging economies such as India, Brazil, and China. Not only is this strategy profitable, but also results in an increase in the sales of elastomeric infusion pumps in these high-growth markets.

Fragmented market with the presence of few established brands and several local players

The global elastomeric infusion pumps market is fragmented in nature, with the prevalence of oligopolistic competition among few renowned brands in the market. Following the patent cliff in the elastomeric infusion pumps market, established manufacturers are exploring newer opportunities for revenue generation. Considering the growth prospects in emerging markets, various companies, such as Baxter, B. Braun Melsungen AG., Fresenius Kabi, and several others, are competing to capture the maximum share in emerging markets.

Marketplace discussions related to elastomeric infusion pumps indicate that portable regional anaesthesia applications exhibit large untapped opportunities for elastomeric pump manufacturers, and this trend is widely observed in the U.S. elastomeric infusion pumps market in ambulatory care centres, dental care units, and cancer care centres.

Greater attention toward evidence-backed treatments

The caregiving model across the world is changing into an evidence-backed system for the better tracking of capital flow, the progress of patients, and reducing the duration of hospital stays. One of the most important requirements of evidence-backed treatment is found in Acute Pain Service (APS). During marketplace discussions, most hospitals showed preference toward the usage of elastomeric infusion pumps instead of electronic ambulatory pumps and patient-controlled analgesia pumps for pain management.

The primary factors were ease of usage, low cost, discreteness, fewer issues, and less chances of fatalities. These factors are leading to an increase in the number of hospitals floating tenders for the procurement of better-quality elastomeric infusion pumps, and this trend is being observed in developed and developing markets in North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe.

Thus, growing awareness regarding evidence-backed treatment is expected to fuel the growth of the elastomeric infusion pumps market during the forecast period.

Frequent product recalls and reported errors

An approximate of 56,000 reports_bk_01_01_2020 of opposing events linked with the usage of elastomeric infusion pumps, which include numerous deaths and injuries, was received by the U.S. FDA during 2005–2009. Of these, elastomeric infusion pumps accounted for only 2.8% of the overall adverse effects reported.

However, the U.S. FDA has become more stringent with regards to the clearance process of elastomeric infusion pumps, thus leading to longer mark-to-market timings and product recalls & rejections. This is expected to hamper the revenue flows of manufacturers operating in the elastomeric infusion pumps market.

Elastomeric infusion pumps are among the most recalled medical devices due to design deficiencies. Other errors associated with these pumps include software problems, alarm errors, inadequate user interface design (human factor issues), damaged components, battery failure, fire, sparks, charring, or electric shocks, which is likely to hamper the growth of the elastomeric infusion pumps market throughout the forecast period.

Elastomeric infusion pumps, which are also referred to as balloon pumps, are used as medical aids for the administration of liquid drugs such as analgesics, local anesthetics, antibiotics, or cytostatics, based on the treatment therapy.

The required pressure to administer the drug is generated from the balloon/elastomeric layer that is molded inside elastomeric infusion pumps. This layer is stretched when elastomeric infusion pumps are filled. The elastic constriction leads the liquid via tubing and gradually through a flow restrictor out into the patient connection.
