The global oral syringes market was valued at USD 628.9 million in 2019. The demand for syringes is growing due to the increasing pediatric population, the ease of use and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases in the geriatric population. The rising number of surgical procedures in the pediatric and geriatric population worldwide are certain factors that are propelling the growth of the global oral syringes market.
Oral syringes are used to inject oral medicine directly into the patient's mouth. They are designed to reduce the risk of drug dosing, thus curbing the chances of administrative error. Oral syringes can meet the needs of patients of all age groups, and these syringes can be used many times over a span of seven days by an individual patient. Medical needle syringes are the parent market for oral syringes and some potential associated markets for oral syringes include injection pens, specialty needles and insulin pumps. Over the years, the industry has progressed from the use of dosing cups, droppers and the use of teaspoons to the use of oral syringes when taking liquid medicine to improve the probability of giving proper doses.
Furthermore, since the prevalence of acute diseases caused by excessive dosage consumption is rising, the need for accurate medication consumption has increased, contributing to the growth of the worldwide market for oral syringes. Oral syringes are simple to use and can be pre-sterilized so that they can be re-used and help to reduce the loss of drugs as well. Together, all these variables drive the global demand for oral syringes. In addition, the increase in the prevalence of cancer in the pediatric and geriatric population has also flourished the demand for disposable oral syringes. As the disposable oral syringes are mostly used with chemotherapy. Hence, these factors are anticipated to grow the demand of oral syringes during the forecast period.
Key players operating in the global oral syringes market include Becton, Dickinson and Company, Braun Melsungen AG, Medtronic, Amcor Limited, Smiths Medical, NIPRO Corporation, Gerresheimer AG, and Terumo Corporation, among others.
