Infusion Therapy Market: Overview
Infusion therapy is a therapeutic procedure that entails the administration of the medication through sterile needles and catheters. It is prescribed to chronically ill patients and patients that do not respond well to oral medication. It is also prescribed for patients who are unable to take medicine orally. Infusion therapy is widely prescribed for the treatment of chronic and complex diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancers, autoimmune diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, respiratory disorders, diabetes, neurological disorders, and various viral & bacterial infections/diseases. Over a period of time, various infusion therapies such as chemotherapy, total parenteral nutritional therapy, and inotropic therapy have been developed. These are found to be effective against a wide range of diseases. Infusion therapy offers several advantages over other non-site-specific delivery methodologies. These include high efficacy, specificity, faster recovery, and easy monitoring. Traditionally, infusion therapy was conducted in a hospital set up. Now, infusion therapy can be carried out at specialty clinics, outpatient infusion therapy centers, and even at home care settings due to the advancements in drug delivery devices.

The global infusion therapy market is estimated to be driven by the high prevalence and rising incidences of chronic as well as acute diseases across the globe. According to World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death across the globe; an estimated number of 17.7 million people died globally in 2015. Furthermore, more than 14 million people contracted cancer across the globe in 2012. The number of new cancer cases is estimated to rise by about 70% over the next two decades. New product developments, high clinical and pharmaceutical R&D budgets, rise in number of pipeline products, and increase in demand for blood and blood products are projected to fuel the infusion therapy market during the forecast period. On the other hand, high cost of chemotherapeutic and cardiovascular drugs is likely to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
