Infusion pumps are extensively used across the health care setting to pump fluids into patients in controlled manner. These pumps are associated with various problems. Most commonly reported problems include software error messages, battery failure, and alarm failure. These are major factors restraining the market. For example, in 2017, Smith Medical’s Medfusion Syringe Pump 4000 Series was recalled as these pumps were unable to accurately detect the diameter of the syringe barrel, resulting in initiation of the "Invalid Syringe Size" alarm.

The report offers detailed segmentation of global infusion pumps market based on product type, application, end-user, and distribution channel. Based on product type, the insulin segment is estimated to account for a large share of the global market during the forecast period. This is due to the rise in incidence of diabetes. Moreover, several studies have proved that insulin pumps are effective in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes and help reduce the rate of hospitalization after usage. The implantable segment is anticipated to lose market share during the forecast period, and is expected to account for share of about 12.2% by 2026, which is a decline from 14.5% share held in 2017. High price of these devices and complications such as pain and vomiting after implantation are factors that are likely to hamper this segment.
