Smart syringes can be defined as medical devices that are engineered with safety mechanisms to prevent the reuse of syringes and regulates unsafe injection practices. Smart syringes are designed with features to protect the person being injected from needle stick injuries, blood-borne diseases such as hepatitis C virus (HCV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and resulting deadly infections. They cater to a wide range of applications that include vaccination, drug delivery, and blood specimen collection. Different types of smart syringes including auto disable (AD) syringes, passive safety syringes and active safety syringes are used depending on the nature of application. Active safety syringes are the most common type of smart syringes used across all healthcare sectors, whereas, auto disable (AD) syringes are the most popular syringes used for vaccination purposes.
The world smart syringes market was evaluated at $4.8 billion in 2015, and is estimated to garner $7.6 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 9.6% over the forecast period. The world smart syringes market is driven by increasing count of needle stick injuries, high prevalence of blood-borne transmission such as Hepatitis B, C, HIV through improper injection practices, growing adoption of safety syringes and technological advancements. In addition, mandatory recommendation by WHO to switch to smart syringes ensuring safe injection practices is the major factor boosting the market growth. However, the high cost associated with smart syringes especially passive safety syringes, low awareness in developing economies and alternative drug delivery methods are likely to impede the market growth. The world smart syringes market volume is projected to reach 15.8 billion units by 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2 during the forecast period.
The world smart syringes market is segmented based on types, applications, end users and geography. The type segment is further categorized into auto disable (AD) syringes, active safety syringes and passive safety syringes. Active safety syringes accounts for the highest revenue in 2015, owing to established market position. Furthermore, auto disable (AD) syringes are especially used for vaccination purposes and are designed specifically for single use, embedded with an internal mechanism that blocks the barrel once used, thereby preventing its further usage.
The world smart syringes market by application is categorized into drug delivery, vaccination, and blood specimen collection. Among these, the drug delivery segment generated the highest revenue in 2015. Several advantages associated with syringes such as better bioavailability of intravenous drugs, shorter onset time, accurate titration of the dosage, among others have boosted the market growth. Based on end user, the smart syringes market is categorized into hospitals, diabetic patients, family practices, and psychiatrics among others. Based on geography, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America would continue to dominate the market until 2020, on account of higher adoption of smart syringes, high awareness among the consumers about smart syringes and high healthcare expenditure across the region.
