Intravenous Equipment

The global market for intravenous equipment is projected to reach $6.9 billion by 2018. Growing dependence on intravenous drug therapy and need for accurate administration of intravenous fluids are contributing to strong growth in the global intravenous equipment market. Though intravenous equipment is designed for both general care and critical care applications, majority of these systems are purchased for general care applications, as these can be used both for hospital-care and home-care applications. Level of control offered for patients as well as medical professionals, programmability, weight, size, cost, service, number of delivery channels offered, and mechanism of infusion are some of the factors determining the popularity of an intravenous system. Poor infection control and high risk of bacterial contamination continue to pose major challenges, especially in third world countries. This has led manufacturers to integrate error-free safety mechanisms into the hardware component, and offer a range of safer intravenous catheters designed to contain contamination and prevent needlestick injuries among the nursing staff.
