Pulmonary Needles Market: Emerging Economies Expected to Influence Growth

Posted by Arslan on January 2nd, 2019

A pulmonary needle is a hollow hypodermic needle designed for insertion into the lungs. Pulmonary needles are used for diagnosis, prognosis or treatment of lung disorders, such as cancer, and infective diseases, such as tuberculosis, abscess, sepsis, viral and bacterial infection and others. Biopsy and aspiration are the major procedures that account for the major use of pulmonary needles. Manual loading is being increasingly replaced by automatic, spring-loaded mechanisms or vacuum-assisted devices (VADs).

Pulmonary Needles Market: Drivers and Restraints

Increase in the number of various procedures, such as fine needle aspiration and biopsies, owing to the growing prevalence of lung diseases, such as infections, bronchitis and cancer, due to growing risk factors, such as smoking, exposure to allergens and carcinogens and others, is the prime driver for the pulmonary needles market. The American Cancer Society’s estimates about 234,030 new cases of lung cancer and about 154,050 deaths in 2018.

The primary technological driver for the pulmonary needles market is the rapid adoption of diagnostics, such as computed tomography (CT), fluoroscopy and ultrasound, which provide critical benefits, such as direct real time imaging and improved success rate by a large margin. Advancements in materials, such as the substitution of stainless steel by cobalt chromium, which is 24% harder, helps to maintain tip sharpness and is more resilient to deformation over multiple passes, will further add to the growth of the pulmonary needles market. Innovations in design represent the largest market opportunity as market position is of critical importance in the industry. Innovative designs, such as ergonomic rotating handle and slip resistant grip, for better needle control and precision, are gaining a large traction.

The restraints in the pulmonary needles market are the various risks, such as chest pain, nosocomial infection, difficulty in breathing, fever or swelling and bleeding from the site.
