The infusion pump market size was valued at USD 9.02 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow from USD 9.67 billion in 2021 to USD 15.81 billion in 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.3% in the 2021-2028 period. Market will exhibit a growth of 6.80% in 2020 as compared to the average growth during 2017-2019. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with market witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market growth and demand, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

The market is gaining significant traction after introduction of insulin pump by leading market players such as Medtronic, Insulet Corporation etc. The market is projected to expand at considerable growth rate owing to the key factors such as growing prevalence of chronic diseases, advancements in drug delivery technologies, and increasing 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 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 these pumps has been encouraged over the manually driven flow control method to provide accurate and exact delivery of the fluid and achieve therapeutic efficacy.

Demand for Pumps in Disease Management of COVID-19 Infection to Improve Business Prospects

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainties regarding the duration, the industry has witnessed a strong upward spike in its growth rate. This is majorly due to the increase in the COVID-19 testing during the year 2020. However, due to the unavailability of workers and supply chain disruptions there was a decline in the production due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

For instance, Baxter international has experienced significant and unpredictable reductions and increases in the demand of certain healthcare products during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, new product launches have uplifted the revenue growth in the year 2020. For instance, In January 2020, Medtronic, Ireland has launched Efficio networked with the SynchroMed II intrathecal drug delivery system.

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 August 2020, Ivenix, Inc. has developed a smart infusion pump named as Epic which helps to eliminate infusion-based injuries of patients.


Growing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases to Boost Market 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 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2020, the prevalence of diabetes was estimated to be around 463 million cases worldwide and in the U.S., 34.2 million adults have diabetes which is 10.5% of the total population. The insulin 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 infusion pump market growth across all regions.

Growing Demand for Ambulatory Pumps to Propel the Market Growth

Ambulatory 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 for the reduction of cost burdens associated with hospitals-based management is likely to increase demand for portable pumps in near future.


Stringent Regulations for the Production of Pumps to Restrain Market Growth

Increasingly stringent regulations regarding the production and incorporation of pumps slow down the approval process for new products. This factor is anticipated to restrain the market growth. Moreover, increasing product recalls due to product errors are restricting the market growth. In August 2019, for example, Fresenius Kabi recalled Vigilant Agilia drug library and Volumat MC Agilia infusion pump due errors to an infusion alarm, low priority keep vein open (KVO), and multiple errors associated with software.
