Oral syringes are mainly used to administer oral and enteral liquid medication in patients suffering from various health problems. Medicine administration through syringes reduces the chances of medication error. This in result, is prompting the increased usage of syringes by medical professionals which is also influencing the market growth. Enteral syringes are widely used for administering the drug through various routes which include rectal, oral, and sublingual especially for the patients admitted in critical care units, hospitals, NICU, and others. These syringes are available in different sizes such as 1ml, 5ml, 10ml, 20ml, 30ml, and 60ml which help in the proper route of drug administration by reducing medication errors. Syringes come with various safety features that include labeling that reads oral/enteral only. They have a purple plunger where purple color is used to differentiate between these syringes and IV syringes. Thus, they are often used to measure appropriate oral liquid medication that needs to be delivered to the patient during the situations when the medication cannot be measured using a medicine spoon or cup. As a result, these are syringes are used for all age groups of patients such as neonatal, pediatrics, adults, and geriatric for accurate administration of the drug for faster recovery which is propelling the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Major factors that are driving the growth of the market are an increase in usage of syringes by medical professionals for the proper administration of enteral feed, a rise in healthcare expenditure, a rise in patients suffering from various chronic diseases, increase in premature neonates admission in NICU, a rise in growth of geriatric patients, and others. According to, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, it is estimated that in the U.S alone every 6 in 10 adults have a chronic disease. In addition to this, according to the World Health Organisation, it is anticipated that global cases of cancer have risen by 18.1 million new cases and 9.6 million deaths in 2018. Furthermore, various other factors that are positively influencing the market growth are reduction in hospitalization time, reduced clinical complication oriented with drug administration, less possibility of bacterial infections, and others. In addition to this, these syringes are widely used in patients suffering from liver diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis, gastrointestinal mucosa, renal disease, and others which are augmenting the market growth during the forecast. Owing to an increase in the prevalence of all these diseases, improper nutritional supply to the body due to unhealthy eating habits, changes in societal behaviour, weak functioning of the digestive system, and others are contributing towards the increase in long term health problems.
