Rapid Infuser Market

2020 Analysis and Review: Rapid Infuser Market by Usability – Single-use and Reusable for 2020-2030

About the Report

A new study published by Future Market Insights estimates global rapid infuser market to surpass US$ 817 million in 2020. As clamor for efficient treatment options for excessive blood loss and hypothermia in trauma and operative settings grows, adoption of novel techniques, including rapid infusers is witnessing growth. The report analyzes rapid infuser market in over 20 countries, provider readers with in-depth analysis on key factors influencing market growth.

Use in Operative Hypothermia

According to the Journal of Trauma Nursing, the use of rapid infusers with warming is a viable practice for whole blood product infusions, with the aim of preventing hyperthermia associated to transfusions. 

Patients suffering from acute blood loss or anemia are prone to hypothermia, which can result in coagulopathy.

High expenses arising from complexities in surgeries, infections in surgery sites, and delays in recovery are potential results from hypothermia. Consequently, in cases of trauma or blood loss during surgery, the requirement for rapid infusers for transfusions of warm blood and other crystalloid fluids is critical. This trend is likely to sustain market growth for the foreseeable future.

Massive Transfusion Applications Drive Demand

Massive transfusion is the practice of transfusing 10 or more RBC products within a period of 24 hours, which has become increasingly mainstream amidst pediatric patients.

It is crucial for time-restrained operations where blood typing cannot be completed. The transfusion of AB plasma and O RBCs through rapid infusers will remain critical in such emergency procedures.

According to the CDC, 2019 saw more than 48 million surgical and non-surgical procedures. This has resulted in a substantial demand for blood, plasma, and crystalloid fluids, many of which require rapid infusers. Similar statistics in other parts of the globe, indicate potential for sustained growth in the near future.

Ambulatory Healthcare Facilities Create Opportunities

In 2019, over half of all ambulatory surgery procedures were conducted in hospitals, with the remaining being performed in ASCs. Rapid infusers provide efficient and fast, fluid delivery in myriad emergency health settings.

Also, aggressive and early fluid therapy has been found to be very effective for interventions associated with critical ailments such as sepsis, and major trauma. Rapid infusers are capable of significant recovery in body vitals such as heart rate in a matter of minutes. These factors are likely to drive adoption from ASCs with a moderate growth rate of nearly 3.5% CAGR.

Key Challenges

Rapid infuser devices are rapidly becoming mainstream in hospitals and specialist clinics around the world. However, market players are likely to face growing challenges during the assessment period. The high cost of conventional rapid infusion devices is a major concern hindering adoption.

Also, slow adoption of rapid infusion devices in hospitals, especially in developing countries and rural areas owing to poor awareness, hurts market prospects. The covid-19 pandemic is also likely to limit sales as healthcare facilities redirect resources to handle the outbreak.

East Asia Rapid Infusers Market

East Asia is a fairly prominent market for rapid infusers, reflecting faster than average growth. Rising awareness among healthcare professionals and patients about healthcare quality and safety standards are driving the adoption of rapid infusers.

Led by China, the vast population base of the region, the growth of the middle class, and the expansion of healthcare coverage are expected reflect a positive growth trajectory.

Also, East Asia has emerged as a leading MedTech center with low cost labor, improvements in intellectual property protections, and major investments in terms of research and innovations.

The penetration of rapid infusers in the region remains fairly low, which allows for significant market expansion opportunities. Low competition from domestic players will also aid market leaders.

Category-wise Insights

Higher Demand for Trolley Mounted Devices

Rapid infusers can be largely classified on the basis of product type into trolley mounted devices, handheld devices and accessories. The trolley mounted devices segment is projected to reach approximately 70% of the overall market share by the end of the assessment period.

The demand for trolley based rapid infusion devices for the forecast period has largely been attributed to ease of use and portability, which has made it an ideal choice for operations in professional healthcare settings.

Reusable Rapid Infusers Top-selling Category

In terms of usability, rapid infuser devices are categorized into single-use and reusable variants. Of these, reusable rapid infuser devices are expected to remain highly sought-after for the foreseeable future, at a valuation of more than US$ 497 million by 2030.

Reusable rapid infusers are largely in demand owing to cost benefits to healthcare facilities. However, the ongoing pandemic is likely to affect sales of reusable options in favor of single-use alternatives in the short-term.

Hospitals Remain Primary End-users

Rapid infusers play important roles in hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and specialty clinics. Hospitals as end-users, account for more than 60% of the market share, while also estimated to reflect a relatively faster growth rate through 2030.

Investments from the public and private sector into healthcare infrastructure, in addition to adoption of rapid infusers in premium hospitals, intensive care units, and emergency care units is a major factor driving growth. 

Rapid Infuser Manufacturers and Competitive Landscape

Leading players in the moderately consolidated rapid infusers market have been largely focused on product research and development strategies to widen their portfolios. Market players are also seeking strategic acquisitions and mergers to bolster geographic presence and capacity expansion.

For instance, in September 2020, 410 Medical announced the clearance from the FDA for its LifeFlow rapid infuser device. The product is capable of delivering a liter of crystalloid fluids for applications in the healthcare sector.

Belmont Instrument Corp has unveiled a new variant of its RI-2 rapid infuser, which uses a proprietary patented induction heating technology, which can prove critical in the treatment of hypothermia, during surgery, and other instances of major blood loss.

The company has also announced the acquisition of MTRE Advanced Technologies Ltd. including its Mennen Medical Ltd product lines. The acquisition is likely to bolster rapid infuser technology for its portfolio.

Genentech has announced the approval from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for its supplemental biologics license, which covers a 2-hour Ocrevus infusion time, for applications in terms of progressive or relapsing multiple sclerosis.

These developments are likely to positively influence the rapid infuser industry through the forecast period.
