Subcutaneous injection is considered a standard method for the delivery of medication into a patient’s body. To facilitate subcutaneous injection, subcutaneous injection ports are used. Subcutaneous injection ports are sterile medication delivery device. Subcutaneous injection ports consists of a silicone injection membrane on a hard base. Through subcutaneous injection port physician prescribed medications can be directly injected into the subcutaneous tissue using a standard needle and syringe, an injection pen, or other manual injection device. Subcutaneous injection port is a device that cannot be used with an injection pump. Furthermore, subcutaneous injection ports are also used for multiple subcutaneous injections for a period of up to 72 hours. Subcutaneous injection port avoids the repeated needle punctures of the skin. This device is widely used for patients who require prolonged central venous access. A subcutaneous injection port is generally a disposable device usually inserted into the skin for a period of up to 5 days. Insulin is injected through a syringe into subcutaneous injection port. Medicines are directly injected through the resealable septum at the top of the device. The needle of the syringe is placed above the surface of the skin whereas the medication is delivered through the soft cannula. A subcutaneous injection port consists of a build in inserter, which give users a virtually painless application. A subcutaneous injection port is usually used with an intrathecal or epidural catheter. Subcutaneous injection ports have low infection rate, but require suitable expertise for their insertion.
The global subcutaneous injection ports market is expected to witness a significant growth over the forecast period due to rising prevalence of cancer and diabetes across the globe. Increasing investment of manufacturers in the development of subcutaneous injection port is further driving the growth of the global subcutaneous injection ports market. Furthermore, over the past decade, more patient-friendly devices have enhanced the demand for subcutaneous injection ports. However, lack of focus on health expenditure, declining reimbursements and others factors are the hindrance of the global subcutaneous injection ports market.
