The global syringe and needles market size to cross USD 34 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 10% during the forecast period. The global market constitutes an essential segment of the global medical devices market. The market is majorly driven by the rising incidence of trauma cases (accidents and burn cases), the growing prevalence of chronic diseases, and the increasing incidence of hospital-acquired infections. Chronic diseases such as diabetes require medical products such as needles and syringes for the administration of insulin and drawing blood samples for monitoring glucose levels. Hence, the market is likely to grow due to the increasing prevalence of diabetics across the globe. With increasing instances of hospital-acquired infections, there is a high demand to reduce hospital-acquired infections and maintain safe laboratory practices. Hence, the increased focus to avoid needle stick injuries and infection transmissions by medical practitioners is boosting the growth of safety syringes and needles in the market.
- The adult segment is expected to grow at a faster growth rate than the pediatric segment and is expected to account for 91% absolute growth during the forecast period.
- The demand for self-administered injectable devices and prefilled syringes for drug delivery is growing at a significant rate to prevent infection risks and avoid needle stick injuries.
- North America is likely to dominate the syringe and needles market during the forecast period; however, the APAC region is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.
- The syringe and needles market in India is expected to observe an incremental growth of over $113 billion.

- Patient Group
INSIGHTS BY PRODUCTS
North America dominates the syringe market. The Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at a faster growth rate due to the presence of a large patient population that requires syringes for medication and blood testing. The increased adoption of injectable drugs, technological advancements, the increase in the geriatric population, and the growing number of vaccination and immunization programs for pediatrics, as well as adults, are expected to drive the volume growth over the next few years. The syringe market is categorized based on type and usability. By type, the segment is further divided into general and specialized syringes. The general segment dominated the market in 2019, while the specialized segment is expected to grow at a faster growth rate during the forecast period. In terms of usability, the syringes segment is segmented into disposable and sterilizable. The disposable syringes market dominated the market share of 90%. The sterilizable segment accounted for a 10% market share.
The needles market is growing, with an incremental growth of $4.78 billion. This growth is due to the increasing demand for needles to administrate drugs and supply nutrients to patients. The increasing prevalence of diabetes is boosting the demand for injecting insulin. Also, the increasing patient population due to the pandemic cases of COVID-19 is increasing the demand for needles and syringes during the forecast period. With the introduction and enforcement of stringent legislation and guidelines, there is a rise in the adoption of safety needles among hospitals and individuals. The demand for safety hypodermic needles is expected to increase with the rising popularity of safety syringes and needles and other safety-engineered medical devices.
INSIGHTS BY PATIENT GROUP
The adult segment accounted for a 65% share of the global market in 2019. The segment is the major revenue contributor on account of the increasing application of injections to treat diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and several viral infections. The growing elderly population, which is prone to chronic diseases, is another major revenue contributor to the healthcare industry as this patient group requires medical supervision. The rise in hospital admissions is due to the increase in cancer, cardiovascular ailments, and other infectious and chronic disease prevalence has driven syringes and needles demand.
The pediatric segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The segment is driven by improving birth rates across the world, boosting the usage of injections. Moreover, the increase in chronic disease prevalence in the pediatric population is one of the significant factors that is driving the usage of syringes and needles. It has been estimated that chronic health conditions affect 10% to 30% of children across the world.
INSIGHTS BY END-USERS
The hospital end-user segment is dominating the market and accounted for 55% of the global syringe and needle market share in 2019. Hospitals are the major revenue contributors. All hospitals use needles and syringes to withdraw blood or fluid samples and administer drugs or vaccinations. In emergency and inpatient settings, the injections are used on a large scale for medication and collection of multiple blood specimens for diagnosis and treatment purposes for the patients in critical care.
The market is witnessing the growing adoption of advanced syringes to minimize the risk of vessel intima. Advanced and safety needles and syringes are reducing the risk of needle stick injuries and transmission of infectious diseases among patients and healthcare providers. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is increasing hospital admissions, thereby increasing the demand for injections.
The clinic end-user segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 9% during the period 2019¬2025. IVF and rehabilitation clinics use a high number of needles and syringes for medical and vaccination procedures, thereby boosting the market. Similarly, the home care setting segment is expected to experience growth as the elderly population prefers these settings over hospitals and other clinics.
INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
The North American region is driven by the rising incidence of chronic and infectious diseases, with hospitals, clinics, and ASCs emerging as the major revenue generators. The US and Canada are the primary revenue contributors to the market. The adoption of syringes and needles with safety mechanisms is higher in North America than in other geographical regions. End-users prefer the use of safety-engineered products, which, in turn, has increased the demand for such products. Moreover, the practice of safe community disposal has helped reduce medical contamination from needles, syringes, and cannula. The market is growing at a significant pace, which is expected to continue during the forecast period due to the rise in demand for safety injections and advanced cannula to reduce the incidences of needle stick injuries.
INSIGHTS BY VENDORS
The global syringes and needles market share is fragmented and is currently intensifying due to the rapidly changing technological environment. Becton, Dickinson and Company, B Braun Melsungen, Nipro Corporation, Terumo, and Teleflex are the key players. All these companies have a significant presence in major geographical regions such as North America, APAC, and Europe. However, there are many local vendors providing products with similar specifications at low prices, which results in a price war among vendors. The major vendors are competing among themselves for the leading position in the market, with occasional spurts of competition coming from other local vendors.
