Needle-Free IV Connectors Market Manufacturers to Focus on Developing Analytical Instruments

This report segments the global IV Connectors (Needle-free) market on the basis of design type, mechanism, and dwell time.


Seattle, WA -- (SBWire) -- 10/01/2019 --Needle-Free IV Connectors

Needle-free IV connectors are needleless devices that are used for connecting administration sets, syringes, and IV catheters. The classification of connectors is based on the internal characteristics and functioning of the parts. Needle-free IV connectors are therefore divided into simple and complex needle-free IV connectors. Simple connectors contain stationary internal parts. The function of complex connectors is defined by the movement of internal parts. Simple connectors are widely used in the healthcare sector. The motion of the internal parts namely mechanical valve, which controls the movement and direction of the fluid in complex connectors determine the fluid displacement and fluid pathway. External characteristics such as housing, shape, and color for both the type may or may not be similar. Needle-free IV connectors are used to offer easy infusion for both care providers and patients, to avoid or reduce the risk of needle-stick injuries, and to decrease the risk of potential bacterial and microbial contamination.

Increasing risk of life-threatening diseases associated with blood stream infections is expected to boost growth of the needle-free IV connectors market

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), annually, around 1 million deaths are associated with the improper use of syringes and needles, which can be prevented by using needle-free IV connectors. Harmful diseases namely hepatitis and HIV can spread through improper and reuse of needles and syringes. Unsafe use of injections accounts for 5% of HIV, 40% of Hepatitis C and 32% of Hepatitis B virus infections globally. Although needle stick injuries are uncommon they are a potential problem, which can prove to be serious and are also responsible for causing above mentioned diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), needle stick injuries account for around 385,000 among healthcare workers in the U.S annually. The pivotal objective in using IV administration sets and needle-free connectors is to decrease the manipulation factor as much as possible. Some of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved needle-free IV connectors include, One-Link, CARESITE, MaxPlus, and Kendall.

The global needle-free IV connectors market was valued at US$ 621.1 million in 2016, and is expected to reach a robust CAGR of 10.3% over the forecast period (2017-2025).

Increasing prevalence of various chronic diseases is expected to propel the needle-free IV connectors market growth

North America accounts for the largest share in the global needle-free IV connectors market, followed by Europe, owing to increasing geriatric population and high prevalence of chronic diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2016, around 50% of the adults in the U.S., accounting for around 117 million people, suffered from one or more chronic health conditions and one in four adults had two or more chronic health conditions.

Moreover, increasing government initiatives and investments for the development of healthcare infrastructure is also expected to boost the market growth. For instance, in 2013, the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) carried out surveillance methods to identify and track device-associated infections by setting the guidelines for the prevention of central-line associated bloodstream infections. Furthermore, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2014, chronic diseases were the leading cause of mortality in Europe with over one-third of the European population above the age of 15 suffering with a chronic disease and two out of three people near 60 age had at least two chronic conditions.

Some major players operating in the needle-free IV connectors market are Baxter International Inc., B. Braun Melsungen AG, Becton, Dickinson and Company, CareFusion Corporation, ICU Medical, Inc., Nexus Medical LLC, RyMed Technologies, LLC, and Vygon SA.

Government organizations and regulatory bodies namely Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC) have recommended the usage of needle-free connectors to reduce the incidence of sharp injuries and blood stream infections mandating its usage in medical facilities in the 'Guidelines for the Prevention of Intravascular Catheter-Related Infections' in 2011. Major issues associated with the conventional options of intravenous infusion are contamination from external sources during administration, blood reflux, and risk of bloodstream infections, which are addressed by needle-free IV connectors. The National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) conducts various programs worldwide that helps to impart education and hands on training sessions to all physicians and nurses about the usage of needle-free connectors and insertion of central venous catheters in children and adults. The advantages of needle-free IV connectors over conventional IV administration namely, safer access to IV lines without using needle, reduced risk of bloodstream infections and reduced possibility of contamination, rising chronic diseases prevalence and cost containment through use of needle-free IV connectors is expected to boost the growth of needle-free IV connectors market over the forecast period.
