Global Hypodermic Needles Market Research, 2030

The global global hypodermic needles market was valued at $3.3 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $4.5 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 3.4% from 2020 to 2030.

A hypodermic needle is a hollow needle widely used across medical settings to carry out different applications, such as drug delivery, vaccination, and blood specimen collection. These needles function through two different mechanisms, namely safety and non-safety needles. They are used to administer and inject drugs in the body and also to withdraw fluids from the body for examination and research purposes.

The upsurge in demand for hypodermic needles, rise in disposable incomes, and growth prospects in emerging economies of Asia-Pacific and LAMEA are expected to provide numerous opportunities for hypodermic needles market forecast .

Furthermore, technological development in the pharmaceutical industry to manufacture safe hypodermic needles is expected to provide remunerative opportunities for expansion of the global hypodermic needles market size during the forecast period. Moreover, presence of key manufacturing companies to manufacture and distribute hypodermic needles and rise in expenditure on healthcare products propel hypodermic needles market growth.

The incidence of chronic & lifestyle diseases, especially diabetes is on the rise. According to the World Health Organization, about 422 million people globally had diabetes in 2014, with the majority living in low-and middle-income countries, and 1.5 million deaths are directly attributed to diabetes each year. Both, the number of cases and the prevalence of diabetes are steadily increasing over the past few decades. Therefore, rise in prevalence of needlestick injuries and diabetes is expected to lead to growth of hypodermic needles market.
