Vein Illuminator Market Trends



  • The rise in technological advancements is driving the market growth


Market CAGR for vein illuminators is driven by the rise in technological advancement for emergency portable, quick, and simple-to-use vein illuminators that can function in any illumination. The best ones include pressure sensors, as they are lightweight and simple to use, NIR devices, since they are portable and work in any lighting, and multispectral devices owing to the fact that the military version is portable and works in any lighting and has robust lenses to withstand harsh weather. Color vision glasses and LED technology, which both need adjustable lighting conditions, are less viable tools for emergency treatment. Each technology, including innovative robotics devices now under development, is appropriate for hospital use since lighting conditions can be controlled and mobility is not required in most departments. When these technologies are eventually made available, practitioners will be able to automate the detection and cannula insertion processes to prevent difficulties and get a more precise view and comprehension of the area of concern.


Additionally, the increasing incidence of vein diseases is expected to propel the growth of the vein illuminator market revenue. A vein disease is a common vascular disorder called vein disease that causes the veins to build up a lot of pressure affected by varicose veins. Blood vessel injury caused by trauma, chemotherapeutic agents, intravenous catheters or needles, pregnancy, infectious organisms, and varicose veins are associated with a higher threat of superficial thrombophlebitis and causes vein disease; vein illuminators are required for healthcare providers to increase the ability of diagonalization of the disease. For instance, in August 2022, as per the National Library of Medicine, a US-based biomedical library and the Center of biomedical informatics and computational biology, nearly $500 million was spent on caring for 150k patients suffering from chronic venous insufficiency yearly. Further, approximately 1% to 2.7% of patients with chronic venous insufficiency would develop a venous stasis ulcer. Each year, more than 20,000 new cases of venous ulcers are identified in patients. Therefore, the increasing incidence of vein diseases drives the vein illuminator market.


Moreover, rising healthcare costs are expected to drive revenue growth in the market. It is also expected that increasing the healthcare budgets of several Middle Eastern and Asian nations would contribute to the revenue growth of the market. The use of innovative healthcare goods to enhance patient comfort has significantly increased about rising competition.


Rise in hospitals and blood donation clinics across the globe. For instance, according to studies, for intravenous treatment, approximately 90% of hospitalized patients ought to need peripheral cannulation and more than one billion venipunctures are performed annually as a prerequisite for most diagnostic testing. Furthermore, a failed venipuncture might result in vein thrombosis, hemorrhage, or nerve damage to the Lateral Antebrachial Cutaneous Nerve (LACN), which can produce so-called 'causalgia' or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). In addition, this technology will make it possible for researchers in the fields of medical engineering and medicine to work together on investigations.


Vein Illuminator Market Segment Insights


Vein Illuminator Technology Insights


The vein illuminator market segmentation, based on technology, includes transillumination, near-infrared illumination, and ultrasound technologies. The near-infrared illumination segment dominated the market, accounting for 35% of market revenue (0.023 Billion). In developing economies, segment growth is driven by its potential to penetrate deeply buried tissues and make deep-seated blood vessels visible through infrared lighting technology. The venous blood absorbs infrared light, precisely projecting an image of the vein beneath. However, ultrasound technologies are the fastest-growing category owing to the rising need for minimally invasive diagnostic procedures and the rising majority of chronic diseases among people.


Vein Illuminator Application Insights


The vein illuminator market segmentation, based on application, includes intravenous access, blood draw, and others. The intravenous access category generated the most income (70.4%). Healthcare professionals use the intravenous cannulation technique for intravenous access, which involves the insertion of a cannula inside the patient’s vein. However, blood draw is the fastest-growing category owing to rising demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures like venipuncture and intravenous access.


Vein Illuminator End-User Insights


The vein illuminator market segmentation, based on end-user, includes hospitals, rehabilitation centers, academic centers, and others. The hospital's category generated the most income owing to the high usage rate of vein illuminators in hospitals to diagnose and treat patients. However, rehabilitation centers are the fastest-growing category as they use illuminators for locating veins to provide critical medications for numerous medical conditions, including congestive heart failure, urinary tract infections, and sepsis.
