Needle Destruction Devices Market analysis and demand with future forecast to 2026


Needle Destruction Devices Market analysis and demand with future forecast to 2026

Press Release

The disposal of sharps waste safely in order to prevent injury, transmission of blood-borne diseases due to needlestick, and to protect waste handlers is necessary. Needle destruction devices are portable devices that destroy the used or unused sharps. They are electrical devices intended for home use and health care facilities for destroying of sharps used for medical purposes by mechanical or incineration means. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), health risks associated with sharps needle destruction devices can be mitigated with special control, making the devices safe and effective. In November 2017, the FDA proposed reclassifying needle destruction devices and renamed as “sharps needle destruction device,” from a Class III device into Class II (special controls). The device dissolves non-coated stainless steel needles, leaving a granular powder of oxidized ferrous, chromium, and nickel as a by-product. Self-injection of insulin by diabetic patients is contributing remarkably to the generation of sharps waste across the globe, which in turn has boosted the demand for their safe disposal. Thus, rising prevalence of diabetes is expected to propel the growth of the needle destruction devices market during the forecast period. However, lack of awareness regarding the novel technology of needle destruction is projected to restrain the expansion of the needle destruction devices market by the end of 2026.

The global needle destruction devices market can be segmented on the basis of product type and end-user. In terms of product type, the global needle destruction devices market can be categorized into needle cutter and needle destroyer. Needle destroyers accounted for the maximum market share in 2018, which can be attributed to the improved government regulations regarding safe disposal of sharps waste and increasing prevalence of blood-borne infections arising out of needlestick injuries. The needle destroyer segment is estimated to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period owing to rising investment made by major companies in the R&D of innovative and multi-featured needle destruction devices and efficient mechanical or electrical mechanism of needle destructors to incinerate the needles. Moreover, rise in concern regarding the protection of waste handlers from injuries is projected to boost the needle cutter segment with a significant CAGR by the end of 2026.

In terms of end-user, the global needle destruction devices market can be bifurcated into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, pharmacies, clinics & physicians’ offices, long-term care & urgent care centers, pharmaceutical companies, and others. The hospitals segment generated the dominant revenue in 2016, owing to the rising number of invasive surgical procedures and increasing cases of hospitalizations across the globe. Government participation in establishing stringent regulatory policies for safe disposal of sharps waste is a major factor behind the estimated dominance of the hospitals segment during 2018-2026.
