Overview of the Global Infusion Pumps Market

The global infusion pumps market, which stood at approximately US$5.41 bn in 2012, is projected to exhibit a steady CAGR of 5.3%, and rise in valuation to US$ 7.76 bn by 2019. With an alarming increase in the number of people diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, chronic pain, and other conditions and disease, the need to demand for medical devices that can administer drugs in precise dosages to treat such conditions has seen an uptick. The global infusion pumps market has benefited immensely from this and is expected to do so in the next four years as well.

As the drug delivery process becomes increasingly automated, ‘smart’ infusion pumps are making their presence conspicuously felt on the market. Patients are expected to opt for more smart pumps in the future as they look for less painful, yet more accurate, safe, and convenient drug delivery systems. The trend of home-based healthcare will provide an additional thrust to infusion pump sales. However, the market has suffered a blow in recent years owing to product recalls, which have put several companies’ reputation at stake. Manufacturing defect-free and rigorously tested infusion pumps has thus become central to sustaining a profitable presence in the global infusion pumps market.

The demand for large volume infusion pumps has thus far been the highest, and is expected to remain so. Disposable infusion pumps have seen an appreciable share in the global infusion pumps market by product type, but will still continue to trail the large-volume infusion pumps market in terms of sales in the near future. Infusion pumps have been most extensively used for administering clinical nutrition. In the coming years, the demand for infusion pumps during cancer treatments and analgesia will rise. 

While North America constitutes the largest infusion pumps market globally, the rise of the Asia Pacific region will be worth watching out, especially with massive demand expected to be seen in India and China.
