  • Rising healthcare expenditure and instances of diseases.

One of the prime reasons driving the market growth of safety needles is rising healthcare expenditure and instances of diseases. With growing complexities in Lifestyle, a surge in cases of cardiovascular diseases has increased diagnosis, treatment, and medicine intake has increased significantly. Which has raised safety needles adaption. Data from World Health Organization (WHO) shows in 2019, 17.9 patients lost their lives owing to cardiovascular, which accounted for 32% of deaths in the year. 6.460 million deaths among patients under 65 years of age were caused by CVDs.  Rising instances of chronic diseases have significantly increased health expenditure for better healthcare.

Market Restraint

  • Rising syringe and needle waste create an environmental threat.

A major problem faced by the safety needle industry is the disposal of needles. Safety syringes are dominantly single-use syringes and their improper disposal creates syringes and needles pollution. with the rising usage of needles and syringes, a surge in syringe pollution has been observed around the world. In March 2021, the city of San Francisco collected more than 13,000 syringes and needles waste, an increase by 10 times than a decade ago. Furthermore, improper disposal of needles raises the chances of the spread of diseases such as HIV and hepatitis. The surging needles market is expected to further increase pollution which degrades the environment and hence has raised concerns.
