Owing to rising demand for ambulatory infusion pumps, increasing incidence of chronic diseases coupled with the rapid growth in the geriatric population, growing number of surgical procedures, and rising demand for home healthcare services, infusion pumps market has witnessed a steady growth. Further, growing adoption of specialty infusion systems and increasing demand of infusion pumps in the emerging markets provides high growth opportunities for the various stakeholders in this market.
Rising Demand for Ambulatory Infusion Pumps is propelling the Growth of Global Infusion Pumps Market
Ambulatory infusion pumps are an important means of drug delivery in a wide range of clinical conditions. They play a vital role in delivering pain control medication, TPN infusion, chemotherapy, and other infusions to patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. In developed markets, the trend is shifting away from the hospital environment towards outpatient care, in order to reduce high treatment costs. As the demand for the outpatient and home care increases, ambulatory pumps are likely to witness high demand.
Growing Number of Surgical Procedures Support the Market Growth
The rate of surgical procedures continues to increase annually across the globe. According to Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, in 2015-2016, there were 3,281 surgical procedures and 4,154 chemotherapy procedures for brain and other CNS cancer. Males had a higher proportion of surgical procedures than females (61% compared with 39%). According to the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery, 143 million additional surgical procedures are needed each year to save lives and prevent disability by 2030. Factors that contributed to this increase are medical and technological advancements, including improvements in anesthesia and in analgesics for the relief of pain, and the development & expansion of minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures. Thus, rising number of surgical procedures has positively impacted the infusion pump market globally.
