The global syringe market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.33% over the forecast period to reach a market size of US$9.123 billion in 2026, from US$6.783 billion in 2019. Syringes are the medical devices used to inject or withdraw fluid from the body. It consists of a hollow cylinder, a plunger, and a needle attached to the cylinder. The downward movement of the plunger results in injecting the fluid into the body, whereas upward movement of the plunger results in withdrawal of the fluid from the body. The syringes were once made from glass and metal and needed to be sterilized before use which has now been replaced by syringes made of plastic and is already pre-sterilized.

The rise in the market may be attributed to the rising patient population base requiring injecting drugs or withdrawal of fluids for diagnostic purposes from the body. Further, rising awareness regarding various vaccinations along with various advancements such as the introduction of smart syringes have led to a boost in the market during the given forecast period. However, growing focus on alternative drug delivery methods such as patches and oral might hamper the market during the given time frame. Major companies have been making significant developments in the market. Furthermore, several regions, globally, have started the procedures to legalize the possessions of syringes for individual use. For instance, in June 2021, New York State Senate announced that they had passed bill 2523, intending to decriminalize possessions and sales of hydroponic syringes. This development is expected to have a positive impact on the global syringe market, in the coming period. Moreover, in June 2021, the state of Arizona in the United States, announced that it had legalized needle or syringe exchange programs, which would allow drug-addicted persons to have a place for free needles. This is development is expected to increase the overall syringe market share, during the forecast period.

For cancer treatment, IV or intravenous chemo is directly put into a patient’s bloodstream through a soft, tiny, plastic tube known as a catheter. The drugs could be given immediately and quickly through a catheter from a syringe, over several minutes. Major companies have been manufacturing syringes for different chronic diseases. BD, one of the largest players in the market, provides conventional syringes, with catheter, eccentric, and luer lock tips for medical purposes.
