This report, Infusion Pump Markets, is Kalorama Information's most current and complete research into infusion pump devices used for patient treatment and nutrition. With an aging population and increased need for healthcare services, this device is a high-interest area for several manufacturers. Kalorama's report details the important types of infusion pumps, projects revenues and discusses the key companies who manufacture and market them.
For the purpose of this study, we have classified two general types of medical infusion pumps:
- Traditional Infusion Pumps
- Specialty Pumps
Traditional infusion pumps are used in a variety of applications and settings from basic fluids for hydration to pain medications and antibiotics. Traditional pumps have been used in hospitals, long-term care settings, physician’s offices, and home settings. This can be further broken out to uses specifically in the ED, OR, and neonate departments.
Products in the traditional segment include three product types:
- Large volume infusion pumps
- Ambulatory infusion pumps
- Chemotherapy pumps
- Disposable pumps
- Syringe infusion pumps
Specialty medical infusion pumps are typically designed to accommodate a particular type of fluid or medication. Many of these pumps are used in home settings and are designed to meet the needs of active patients, such as with diabetes patients.
Products in the specialty medical infusion pump segment include:
- Enteral feeding pumps
- Insulin infusion pumps
- Implantable infusion pumps
Revenues for each product segment were gathered through both primary and secondary research methods.
