Safety Syringe and Safety Needles Market Overview

The global safety syringe and safety needles market is estimated to grow from USD 6.8 billion in 2024 to reach USD 8.9 billion by 2035, growing at CAGR of 2.2% during the forecast period.

Given the increasing incidence of needlestick injury among patients, there is a surge in the requirement of safety syringes and needles. Safety needles refer to syringes that are specifically designed to reduce the risk of needlestick injuries and enhance safety to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases among patients and healthcare experts. According to a study published in the Canadian Journal of Infectious Diseases and Medical Microbiology, in 2021, over 1.3 million cases of needlestick injuries have been reported among healthcare workers in the United States and Europe. Needlestick injuries occur frequently in the healthcare industry while delivering drugs to patients through injections, resulting in the transmission of blood-borne diseases. It is worth highlighting here that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, healthcare workers are at higher risk of exposure to harmful pathogens such as hepatitis B virus and human immunodeficiency virus due to needlestick. The higher risk of needlestick injury is attributed to inadequate protective equipment, inappropriate disposal of syringes, and lack of training. Safety syringes come with built-in mechanisms or features that help prevent needlestick injuries that occur during blood collection, injections, and intravenous drug administration. The safety features that have been included in syringes and needles include retractable needles or sheaths, a needlestick prevention system, and a shielding mechanism that automatically covers the needle after use. 

Furthermore, industrial leaders have taken several initiatives to ensure healthcare workers and patients are safe from needlestick injuries. It is a well-known fact that needles cannot be avoided in the healthcare industry as they are an important intravenous drug delivery method. Considering the risk of needlestick injuries several industry stakeholders have come up with advanced product designs and safety measurements to reduce the risk of sharp needle injuries. These advanced safety syringe and needle devices offer several benefits including automatic retraction, needle shielding and easy disposable. 

Driven by the significance of safety syringes and safety needles, various industrial leaders have developed their proprietary smart devices that have the potential to prevent injuries occurring due to needlesticks and reduce the risk of infectious diseases. In order to expand research on advanced needles and syringes, several players active in this domain are collaborating to enhance their intellectual portfolio, aiming to develop smart needle devices with innovative features, which can also improve medication adherence. Shimadzu has one such SMART safety syringe, which includes a built-in smart chip to store data on first use and stroke counts. Owing to the increasing demand for efficient drug delivery systems and ongoing initiatives by the industrial players to integrate technologies for designing safety needles, the safety syringe and safety needles market stands to witness growth during the forecast period.
