London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 02, 2012 -- The global infusion systems market was valued at $6 billion in 2010 and is forecast to grow to a value of $8.3 billion by 2017 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.7%. The market is forecast to grow due to the increase in the chronic pain patient population, advancements in the infusion pump technology with an increased focus on safety and the positive developments in the reimbursement scenario for infusion systems in the US market.
In 2010, the US and the European markets together contributed more than 70% towards the global infusion systems market. The majority of sales came from the US, with a contribution of 42% in 2010. The European market for infusion systems contributed 30% to the global revenues in 2010. These two regions are followed by the remaining market geographies such as the Asia Pacific region and South and Central America which contributed 28% to the global revenues.
The main reasons for the significant contribution of the US and Europe towards infusion systems market are significant chronic pain patient population and comparatively better reimbursement scenarios (both private and federal) in these regions when compared to the developing countries such as China and India. Higher affordability is another important factor which enables patients to afford certain types of infusion pumps which are not reimbursed.
The global infusion systems market is highly fragmented. In 2010, Hospira was the leading player with a 16% market share, due to its strong presence in the US infusion systems market. It was followed by CareFusion with 12% of the global market. Similar to Hospira, CareFusion has a strong presence in the US market as well as enjoying a substantial presence in the European market. Baxter is positioned third in the global infusion systems market with significant presence in Europe.

The increase in the population of patients suffering from chronic pain is expected to drive the market for infusion systems. This is because chronic pain in patients (suffering from various disorders) is a major medication area for which infusion pump usage is prescribed. Chronic pain affects a significant number of the population as it is not restricted to any specific disease and can also occur as a side effect of a variety of conditions. The prevalence rate for chronic pain is high across the globe. For example, a European survey (including 46,000 people) reported that one in five individuals were suffering from chronic pain. Similarly, an Australian population study of over 17,000 people showed the prevalence of chronic pain in 17.1% of males and 20% of females.
A number of studies point to the strong correlation between chronic pain and increasing age. Hence an increase in the elderly population can result in an increase in the prevalence rate of chronic pain indicating significant growth opportunities for the infusion systems market.
