Published Date:   December 2016

The global hypodermic needles market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% during 2016 - 2022. The growth of the global market is largely driven by the high demand for vaccines and increasing compliance of safety needles. High prevalence of needle stick injuries during drug administration is a key concern for healthcare providers across the globe. Improper disposal of syringe and needles is creating the demand for advanced safety mechanisms in hypodermic needles. Globally, approximately 16 billion injections are administered every year as per the World Health Organization (WHO); however, all the syringes and needles are not properly disposed of. Therefore, several benefits of safety needles such as ease of use during injection and safe delivery of drug or medication are increasing their popularity among healthcare providers.
