The market is gaining significant traction after introduction of insulin infusion pump by leading players such as Medtronic, Insulet Corporation etc. The market is projected to expand at considerable growth rate owing to the factors such as growing prevalence of chronic diseases, advancements in drug delivery technologies, and growing adoption of these techniques in the emerging regions. This pump is a medical device used to deliver fluids such as nutrients and medicines to the patient in a controlled amount. These are designed based on the specialized functions such as enteral feeding pumps to deliver nutrients, insulin pumps to typically deliver insulin, and patient controlled analgesia (PCA) pumps for delivery of pain medications. Various routes utilized for fluid delivery by these pumps include intravenous, subcutaneous, and arterial. The practice of infusion pump has been encouraged over the manually driven flow control method to guarantee accurate and exact delivery of the fluid and to achieve therapeutic efficacy.


Growing Research and Development Activities to Launch Home Infusion Systems

The growing prevalence of chronic diseases coupled with increasing cost of hospital-based infusion therapies has resulted into growing research and development activities to develop home-based infusion products. For instance, growing patient population in diabetes, cancer, and neurological disorders has resulted in growing demand for long term care preferably at home care settings. Moreover, growing geriatric population in need of long-term care therapies is driving the new product developments targeting home-based infusion therapies. The leading players in the market are focusing on site of care management for specialty medicines. In July, 2019, EVER NEURO PHARMA GMBH, launched D-mine”, a portable patient friendly infusion pump for the treatment of Parkinsons Disease.

Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases to boost the Growth

Infusion pumps provide important advantages over the manual delivery of fluids like the ability to administer the fluids in a very small dosage and at accurate programmed rates. In many cases like cancer and diabetic conditions, these pumps are used to deliver the medication to maintain drug level in the bloodstream at a steady state. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2018, cancer was estimated to be the second most prominent cause of death globally and is responsible for about 9.6 million deaths. Cancer patients require chemotherapy which is to be delivered to the patients in a continuous manner which can be achieved by using the pump. Moreover, according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), in 2019, the prevalence of diabetes was estimated to be around 463 million cases worldwide. The insulin infusion pumps are increasingly being preferred in the management of type 1 diabetes. These patients necessitate user friendly self-controlled pumps to achieve continuous medication delivery. Together, these factors are surging the demand for infusion pumps across all regions.

Growing Demand for Ambulatory Infusion Pumps to Propel the Market Growth

Ambulatory infusion pump is a significant means of drug delivery in a wide range of medical situations. They play a vital role in supplying analgesics, chemotherapy, TPN infusion, and other infusions to patients in both hospitals and home care settings. In developed countries, the shift to site of care management of chronic diseases to reduce the costs burden associated with hospitals-based management is likely to increase demand for portable pumps in near future.


Stringent Regulations to Restrain the Market Growth

Increasingly stringent regulations resulting in slow down of the approval process for new products is anticipated to restrain the market growth to some extent. Moreover, increasing product recalls due to product errors are restricting the infusion pump market growth. For instance, in August 2019, Fresenius Kabi recalled Volumat MC Agilia infusion pump and Vigilant Agilia drug library due errors to a low priority keep vein open (KVO), infusion alarm, and multiple errors associated with software.
