A catheter tip syringe is a type of enteral syringe that is widely used for the administration of feed or medications to patients suffering from chronic illnesses in which the patients are not able to consume food or medicines in a normal way. These disposable syringes manage the nutritional therapy or medicines to different patient groups including neonates, pediatrics, and adults.

The increasing rate of premature births resulting in neonatal hospital admissions is among the crucial factor amplifying the demand for catheter tip syringes. Also, the growing prevalence of chronic disorders like gastrointestinal diseases, cancer, and malnutrition is further expected to augment growth in the market.

A rise in the prevalence of lifestyle diseases and other disorders like diabetes and the increasing geriatric population will propel product demand in the coming years. In addition, the administration of drugs and nutritional therapy via the oral, rectal, or sublingual route is the main use of these syringes. They are often employed in clinics, hospitals, and homes and range in size from 1 ml to over 80 ml.

The newest version of the ISO-80369-3 international standard was followed in the production of recently introduced disposable enteral syringes. This will aid the market growth in the coming years. The ability of these syringes to provide medication directly into the gastrointestinal tract is fueling product sales. These syringes are widely employed to deliver oral liquid medication as well as dietary food. Catheter tip syringes perform similarly to enteral feedings and are meant for use in the same manner.

Unlike most adult drugs, children's medications are generally in liquid form, and administration of liquid food and medication by cups and spoons leads to serious errors. Thus, to reduce the instances of medication errors in children, several healthcare agencies are promoting the use of catheter tip syringes which is driving the market growth.

Geographically, North America is expected to dominate the market by accumulating over 41.2% market share by end of the forecast period. Factors such as the rising prevalence of cancer and the increase in neonatal admissions will fuel the product demand in the region. The steep rise in baby boomers with chronic illnesses and the growth in premature deliveries in the United States is propelling product sales. This rise in preterm deliveries leads to neonatal hospitalizations which is one of the important factors that will supplement the regional growth.

The growth in chronic disorders like cancer, malnutrition, and gastrointestinal diseases will have a strong impact on the market expansion. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.9% during the projected period. The growth is attributed to the rapid increase in the infant population suffering from chronic diseases and the surging rate of premature births in India and China will augment market growth in this region.

What are the Key Challenges that may Restrain Growth of the Catheter Tip Syringe Market?

The catheter tip syringe is made of plastic material, and the single-use disposable syringes create much more piling and are harmful to the environment. In addition, the rise of throw-away medical supplies is trashing the environment and is responsible for landfill waste. Therefore, the single-use catheter tip syringe for bio-degradable and recyclable is a big challenge.

Additionally, disposable plastic-based syringes are used extensively due to convenience, patient safety, cost, and hygiene. However, the catheter tip syringes come in direct contact with the body fluid and blood, and the chances of contamination are more. Therefore, disposing of the catheter tip syringes is a challenging job.
