Overview of the global hypodermic needles market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global hypodermic needles market to grow at a CAGR of almost 7% between 2016 and 2020.  Several governments across the world have started adopting legislation that restricts the frequency of needlestick injuries (NSIs). With the enforcement of these legislations, the healthcare and pharmaceutical markets worldwide are now shifting towards the mandatory use of safety needles and syringes to help protect those at a risk of infection from NSIs and other unsafe injection practices. Legislation has mandated employers within the industry to implement formal written exposure control plans and actively involve frontline HCWs, while choosing safe needle devices. The regulations also require employers to create and maintain sharps injury logs comprising detailed information on the type, brand, and manufacturer of devices associated with such injuries. Such compulsory regulations will hugely impact the global market for hypodermic needles and will increase its market size in the coming years.

In terms of geography, the Americas dominated the market in 2015 and was the largest revenue contributing region during the same period.  Much of the region’s growth can be attributed to the high sales of high-priced passive safety hypodermic needles in the large and mid-tier hospitals. With a well-established healthcare infrastructure and surging awareness among individuals about blood-borne diseases, the Americas is witnessing strong sales of automatic retracting hypodermic needles. Also, several healthcare facilities are completely replacing the standard safety hypodermic needles by the semi-automatic and automatic retractable safety hypodermic needles, which will further contribute to the growth of the market in this

Global outlook of the robotic surgery market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global robotic surgery market to grow steadily during the forecast period and post a CAGR of more than 11% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the increased focus of surgeons towards minimally invasive surgeries to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the surgical robotics market in the coming years. Benefits such as reduced recovery time, hospital stay, and postoperative pain have resulted in the increasing preference for minimally invasive surgeries by both surgeons and patients. Since the use of robotics gives a better view of the target area than conventional techniques and allow precise movement of instruments, the coming years will witness an increased adoption of robotic-assisted techniques, which will consequently drive the growth of the robotic surgery market.

This industry research report estimates that in terms of geographical regions, the Americas will be the major revenue contributor to the market throughout the next four years. Increasing incidences of chronic disorders and the advantages of robotic surgeries over the other traditional methods such as laparoscopy and open surgeries will bolster the market’s growth prospects in this region.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Characterized by the presence of major Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies and several small companies, the market appears to be fragmented and is highly competitive.

Overview of the surgical navigation systems market in the US

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the surgical navigation systems market in the US will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of almost 6% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increasing popularity of minimally invasive surgeries as one of the primary growth factors for the surgical navigation system market. Owing to the increasing complications involved with open surgeries and the slow post-operative healing, there has been a rapid increase in the adoption of minimally invasive surgeries. With advanced intraoperative imaging system and wide high-resolution monitors, surgical navigation systems help surgeons easily perform minimally invasive surgeries. The rising prevalence of diseases such as cancer, arthritis, and cardiovascular diseases (CVD) that require surgeries coupled with the increased awareness towards the benefits associated with minimally invasive surgery such as improved clinical outcomes and reduced hospital stays will drive the demand for surgical navigation systems in the coming years.

One of the major trends that will gain traction in the surgery navigation systems market is the use of frameless stereotaxy for intracranial procedures. By providing real-time updated information to neurosurgeons about the location and trajectory of the lesion, frameless stereotaxy increases the chances of complete lesion resection. This will allow a smaller skin incision and reduce the risk of venous sinus injuries, which will be a significant benefit during cranial surgeries.
