““Increasing first attempt success rate of pricking for IV access and blood draw applications”
The global vein illuminator market was valued at USD 32.2 million in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 227.2 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 32.41% between 2016 and 2022. The growth of the vein illuminator market would be driven by its increasing success in finding the appropriate vein to draw blood or for IV access in the first attempt. This facilitates the medical practitioner’s task and also reduces the patient discomfort. Very often, the veins of elderly patients and children are hard to reach, which causes the procedure to be more painful. Dehydration, obesity, certain medications, and drug abuse can also lead to difficulty in accessing veins. When using vein illuminator devices, the infrared light of the device is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood. When the device is held above the skin, veins appear noticeably different from the surrounding tissue and are, thus, highlighted. The vasculature shows up clearly on the skin’s surface, aiding in vein location to collect a blood sample or administer IV medications
“Near infrared technology-based vein illuminator to hold largest market share”
The NIR technology-based vein illuminators are more accurate than transillumination-based devices and cost lower than ultrasound technology-based devices. Therefore, near infrared technology (NIR)-based vein illuminators are expected to hold the largest market share and grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.
“Market in North America to grow at the highest CAGR”
The market in North America is expected to grow at the highest CAGR because of the high demographic concentration and growing aging and pediatric population. North America is also expected to witness rapid growth due to the presence of major manufacturing companies for vein illuminator and the consumer acceptance of new technologies.
