DUBLIN, Apr. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5qkx9m/global_peripheral) has announced the addition of the "Global Peripheral I.V. Catheter Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
Peripheral I.V. catheters are peripheral venous devices used to infuse medication or fluids directly into a vein, or draw blood samples for testing. These catheters are made of a non-irritant material, such as silicone, which negates any side effects caused when they are left in the patient's arm for several weeks or months.
Peripheral I.V. catheters are introduced into the peripheral vein using a needle and fixed to the patient's skin with an adhesive tape. The needle is then removed, leaving a small tube of the cannula at the insertion site. Advanced peripheral I.V. catheters are equipped with additional safety features to prevent needlestick injuries, which allow for their use in critical care units in hospitals.
The analysts forecast the Global Peripheral I.V. Catheter market to grow at a CAGR of 8.08 percent over the period 2013-2018.
The Global Peripheral I.V. Catheter market can be segmented into two divisions: Peripheral insertion catheters and Integrated/Closed catheters.
The report, the Global Peripheral I.V. Catheter Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global Peripheral I.V. Catheter market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One of the emerging trends in the market is the adoption of power-injectable closed catheters for the injection of contrast media during CT imaging. CT imaging requires a contrast media to be used for enhanced visualization during diagnostic procedures. However, the catheter must be strong enough to withstand pressures that can be more than 300 psi.
