Safety syringes are syringes developed with a safety mechanism to prevent needle stick and other injuries. The needle on a safety syringe can be detachable or permanently attached. The emphasis on preventing the re-use of syringes by safety bodies and governments has raised the demand for safety syringes. Syringes with retractable needles and syringes with protective shields are safety syringes widely used in hospitals. Retractable needle safety syringes are predominantly accepted over conventional syringes and thus possess substantial potential for growth. According to the World Health Organization, more than 3.1 million people die every year due to unsafe injection practices. The increasing number of syringe needlestick injuries, disposal of non-sterile syringes and sharing, and unsafe injection practices are the major factors influencing the growth of this market. Revolutions Medical, Inc., Becton, Dickinson and Company, Axel Bio Corporation and Medicina are the major players in this market.
