Such initiatives has spurred the market.
In the last few years, the rising prevalence of needlestick injuries has gained global attention. As needlestick injuries have become one of the common health hazards owing to negligence on part of health workers, the demand for retractable needle safety syringes is rising to curb the incidence of the same. Also with the rising immunization programs conducted by governments and the WHO aimed at providing people with equal access to vaccines against deadly diseases, the demand for retractable needle safety syringes is expected to rise in Asia Pacific.
Besides this, the market is expected to gain from factors such as the increasing preference towards self-administration of drugs, recent technological advancements, and rising awareness about the benefits of retractable needle safety syringes.
Advent of Alternative Drug Delivery Methods Poses Threat to Market
On the downside, recent advances in medical science have led to the advent of alternative and more advanced methods of drug delivery. These innovations pose threat to the retractable needle safety syringes market as patients are increasingly preferring novel methods more trustworthy to prevent the risk of infections. In addition, retractable needle safety syringes come at a high cost, which is a key factor limiting its adoption across several underdeveloped nations, restricting the market’s trajectory in Asia Pacific.
Nevertheless, in emerging nations such as India and China, governments are increasing their healthcare expenditure aimed at developing a sophisticated infrastructure. With this, hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare providers are expected to invest more in newer methods of drug delivery, thus bolstering growth prospects for the retractable needle safety syringes market in Asia Pacific.
