The World Market for Infusion Pumps: Forecasts to 2018 (Large Volume Pumps, Ambulatory Pumps, Insulin Pumps, Enteral Feeding Pumps, Others)

The Worldwide Market for Infusion Pumps

The Worldwide Market for Infusion Pumps contains Kalorama Information's most complete research into infusion pump devices used for patient treatment and nutrition. This device is a high-interest area for several companies, given the aging of the population and the increased need for services in the healthcare area. The report outlines the important types of infusion pumps, projects sales and discusses the key competitors that make and offer pumps for sale. This report classifies two basic kinds of medical infusion pump: traditional pumps and specialty pumps:

Traditional Infusion Pumps

Traditional medical infusion pumps are employed in a range of applications and settings from basic fluids for hydration to administering pain medications and antibiotics. Such pumps have been used in long-term care settings, hospitals, physician’s offices, and home settings. This can be further broken out to uses specifically in the emergency department, operating room, and neonate department. The three types of products in the traditional segment include:
  • Large volume infusion Pumps
  • Ambulatory infusion pumps (Chemotherapy Pumps and Disposable Pumps)
  • Syringe infusion Pumps

Specialty Infusion Pumps

To accommodate a particular type of fluid or medication, specialty medical infusion pumps are typically designed. Most often these pumps are employed in home settings, fashioned to meet the requirements of active patients, such as those patients having diabetes.

The following products comprise the specialty medical infusion pump segment:
  • Insulin Infusion Pumps
  • Enteral Feeding Pumps
  • Implantable Infusion Pumps
Sales figures of each product sector were compiled using both primary and secondary research techniques.

The report contains as well incidence of world demographics; life expectancy by country; incidence and prevalence of disease; safety issues and infusion pumps; and other general issues affecting the market.
