Increasing Preference for Self-monitoring of Blood Glucose to Boost the Safety and Personal Lancets Market

May 18, 2017

The recent market intelligence study by Infiniti Research on safety and personal lancets tracks the technological advances and product innovations in the home healthcare industry and provides insights into growth opportunities.

Understanding the safety and personal lancets market

Safety and personal lancets are gaining popularity in the healthcare market. These medical devices form an integral component of the sharps injury prevention program in healthcare centers, clinics, laboratories, and doctor’s offices. These devices help eliminate needle-stick injuries and infections. Personal lancets are disposable tools used to make vein punctures and collect small blood samples. The global healthcare market is witnessing technological advancements and product innovations, especially in the home healthcare sector. The launch of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) devices will increase the number of patients performing blood glucose tests at home.

Medical devices companies from emerging markets of China, Taiwan, and India have increased the level of competition in the market by manufacturing and launching products at a very competitive price. Also, many people find it extremely inconvenient and painful using a lancet on themselves, which leaves a huge scope for manufacturers to come up with a device that can be used with ease and reduce pain.

Emergence of home healthcare services

Home healthcare devices enable regular monitoring of blood glucose levels and offer effective diabetes management. The number of patients performing blood glucose tests at home will see a surge following the launch of innovative products by glucose-monitoring manufacturers and the high preference for self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG).

Technological innovations to revolutionize the lancet market

The vendors are focusing on developing devices that can help reduce the intensity of pain and that are cost effective for consumers. The use of advanced designs like 33G and tri-bevel lancets will ensure high consumer comfort and reduce pain. Moreover, manufacturers are designing lancets compatible with multiple lancing devices to increase their sales and sustain the competition in the market. They are also introducing devices that can collect blood from thighs, hands, forearms, palms, and upper arms.
