Needle-free IV Connectors Market Is Projected To Grow At A Moderate CAGR During The Period Of Assessment

Needle-Free IV Connectors are routinely used in the hospitals for intravenous administration of fluids and medicines to protect the hubs in vascular access systems. In order to reduce risks of possible contaminations associated with the IV administration and to curb manipulation as much as possible, needle free IV connectors can prove to be ideal in all types of IV infusions. Furthermore, technological advancements such as connectors that prevent fluid reflux, highly closed systems, and connectors embedded with antimicrobial agents (V-Link) have helped to decrease the risk of bloodstream infections associated with IV administration. Needle-free connectors are with extended dwell time that can help preventing intraluminal contamination and device cross-contamination, which can be favorable for the growth of the market in the near future.

Market Dynamics

Government organizations and regulatory bodies namely Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC) have recommended the usage of needle-free connectors to reduce the incidence of sharp injuries and blood stream infections mandating its usage in medical facilities in the ‘Guidelines for the Prevention of Intravascular Catheter-Related Infections’ in 2011. Major issues associated with the conventional options of intravenous infusion are contamination from external sources during administration, blood reflux, and risk of bloodstream infections, which are addressed by needle-free IV connectors. The National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) conducts various programs worldwide that helps to impart education and hands on training sessions to all physicians and nurses about the usage of needle-free connectors and insertion of central venous catheters in children and adults. The advantages of needle-free IV connectors over conventional IV administration namely, safer access to IV lines without using needle, reduced risk of bloodstream infections and reduced possibility of contamination, rising chronic diseases prevalence and cost containment through use of needle-free IV connectors is expected to boost the growth of needle-free IV connectors market over the forecast period.
