Empty IV Bags Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

Empty intravenous (IV) bags are medical devices that are designed for the transfer and mixing of pharmaceuticals. They are also used for the intravenous administration of solutions via the use of a spike port. In most cases, the gadgets in question do not have a tamper-proof function. The FDA has given its approval to attachments for these devices that are designed to create a tamper-proof closure for intravenous bags.

IV bags are exclusively used in medical environments that need a prescription, such as hospitals and other medical institutions that provide inpatient and outpatient care. PVC-made empty IV bags pose a threat to both human health and the environment as a result of phthalates leaking from medical equipment, as was the conclusion of extensive studies conducted in the area of medicine. In addition, the combustion method for disposing of PVC materials leads to the generation of the harmful gas hydrogen chloride (HCL).

This adds even more to the problem of acid rain. The medical profession has the potential to make substantial headway in protecting the health and safety of the world's patient population if they switch to using empty IV bags that do not contain PVC. These kinds of elements are projected to propel the usage of non-PVC empty IV bags, which will, in turn, contribute to the expansion of the market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has presented the healthcare sector on a global scale with a variety of difficult issues. Patients suffering from a wide range of illnesses have less access to proper medical facilities as a result of restrictions placed on medical service provision. On the other hand, the spike in hospital admission rates that has been attributed to COVID-19 has resulted in an increase in the demand for intravenous bags that are used in IV treatment across all hospital settings worldwide. As a result, even after the pandemic has been contained, it is anticipated that the market will see the growth that is both considerable and ongoing.

Market Growth Factors

An increasing number of reported instances of cancer

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer is the second biggest cause of death worldwide. In 2018, an estimated 9.6 million people died from cancer, making it the cause of one out of every six fatalities. It is anticipated that the predominance will increase even more in the years to come. Cancer, in general, leads to a rise in the prevalence of stomach ulcers, interruptions in the normal operation of the gastrointestinal system, and the creation of physical obstructions; all of these factors contribute to an increased requirement for parenteral nourishment.

Prohibition of the use of iv bags made of PVC boosts the rate of growth

The vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) and ethylene dichloride that go into the production of PVC are the two main ingredients (EDC). VCM is a strong carcinogen. Dioxin is produced during the manufacturing of EDC, which is neurotoxic. The employees at the PVC factory and the communities that surround it suffer from elevated incidences of cancer and other ailments as a direct consequence of this. The market for empty IV bags has seen growth as a result of the rising demand for IV bags that are beneficial to the environment.

Market Restraining Factor

The Potential for Adverse Consequences from IV Treatment

Even while vitamin IV therapies have significant risks, the majority of those negatives may be mitigated if they are administered under the supervision of a trained medical expert who adheres to prudent safety policy. Infusions of vitamin IV might provide a few difficulties at times. If certified medical experts are not accessible to deliver the therapy, it must be done so in a hospital setting. It's possible that having excessive amounts of some vitamins in your body might be harmful. For instance, consuming an excessive amount of vitamin A might result in adverse consequences ranging from headaches and dizziness to even death in the most difficult situations.

Product Outlook

Based on product, the market for empty IV bags are classified into PVC and non-PVC. The non-PVC segment represented a significant revenue portion of the overall market in 2021. It is anticipated that there will be a rise in demand for materials that do not contain PVC because of the growing need for non-toxic IV containers and the rigorous law that prohibits the use of PVC. These bags help reduce the risks that are associated with traditional PVC empty IV bags, including the difficulties associated with transportation and the interaction between drug packaging material and disposable containers.
