Disposable Syringes Market Size & Trends

The global disposable syringes market size was estimated at USD 14.18 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% from 2023 to 2030. The market is primarily driven by factors, such as an increase in technological advancements and a rise in the incidence of chronic diseases. Moreover, the increasing adoption of safety syringes and the rising prevalence of diabetes drive market growth. Leading manufacturers focus on technological innovations, an increase in technological advancements, and the development of advanced products to gain substantial market shares, propelling its growth. The increasing prevalence of chronic disorders, such as diabetes, can be managed by self-injecting medication.

U.S. Disposable Syringes market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The rising cases of chronic diseases and an increasing number of vaccinations that make extensive use of syringes, such as single-use and disposable syringes, are enhancing global market growth. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) Diabetics Atlas, the diabetic population is anticipated to grow by 46.0% reaching 643 million (1 in 9 adults) by 2030, and likely to majorly rise in middle-income countries, as compared to the developed countries. The adoption and development of disposable medical supplies for the prevention of infections during hospital operations is another key factor driving the market growth.

Growing self-injecting medication brings the need for safety while using syringes, whereas nowadays, with the advent of disposable syringes, it is much easier to eliminate the risk to a certain extent, by throwing away the needle immediately after the use of injection so that no cross contamination occurs. Mölnlycke Health Care AB reports that every year, 70 million surgeries are carried out in Europe. This has resulted in a projected increase in product sales over subsequent years, driving the market growth.

End-use Insights

The hospital end-use segment accounted for the largest revenue share of around 52% in 2022. Hospitals are often the preferred choice for patients seeking treatment due to their convenient accessibility and established trust. Patients can also visit the hospital to seek fluid therapy, which administers fluids to patients’ body intravenously or subcutaneously. Consequently, the demand for dispersing syringes in hospitals continues to rise.

The hospital segment also is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 6.4% from 2023 to 2030. Many industry players and government bodies have been prioritizing health by spreading awareness about the use of syringes and improving patient accessibility. To achieve these goals, organizations collaborate with hospitals for training, product distribution, and adoption of smart syringes that drive the demand for disposable syringes within healthcare facilities.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the global market in 2022 and accounted for the largest share of 42% of the overall revenue. It is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Major factors contributing to its growth include the increasing geriatric population, the growing burden of diabetes due to lifestyle changes, and the high adoption of safety syringes. Some market leaders, such as Medtronic and BD, Nipro Corporation, and Terumo Corp., have their operational headquarters in North America, which is also contributing to regional market growth.

Disposable Syringes Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

MEA is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.9% from 2023 to 2030. Diabetes is becoming more common because of unhealthy lifestyles and other risk factors, such as obesity, genetics, low awareness levels, and high cost of health care. It is interesting to note an upsurge of diabetic subjects in Middle East. The highest prevalence of diabetes across the globe is in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain. Therefore, the product has a high demand, which is fulfilled by the development of extensive government policies and diabetic care plans to reduce these figures in this region.

Syringe Type Insights

The conventional syringes segment accounted for the largest share of around 53% in 2022. The use of injection and auto-injectors comprises the use of needles. Conventional syringes are the most practiced and used syringes in homecare settings. For instance, conventional disposable syringes guarantee protection for the patient receiving the injection. Related to this, many key players have introduced conventional syringes in the market. The safety syringes segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 6.4% from 2023 to 2030.

Safety syringes are required for most diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for chronic diseases since they are essential during medication administration and tests, resulting in a rising product demand. In June 2021, Hindustan Syringes and Medical Devices Ltd. entered a technical collaboration with Star Syringes of the UK to launch disposable safety needles with sharps injury prevention features under the Disposjekt Needle brand. They are convertible to regular dispo valve disposable syringes or can be attached to K.O.J.A.K. auto-disable safety needles.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The market is highly competitive, with a large number of manufacturers accounting for most of the market share. Syringe launches, approvals, strategic acquisitions, and innovations are just a few of the important business strategies used by market participants to maintain and grow their global reach. For instance, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., in November 2022, partnered with the Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company to offer affordable access to blood glucose testing supplies in the U.S. The American Heart Association projects that 45.1% of the U.S. population, i.e. over 130 million adults, is expected to be affected by any cardiovascular disease (CVD) by 2035. Furthermore, about 655,000 Americans die from heart disease each year; it accounts for 1 out of 4 deaths.
