The IV Bags market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% over forecast period 2021 and 2030. The increasing adoption of injection-based therapies in various treatment modalities has been fuelling the demand for IV bags.
According to study, among applications, injection-based therapies are likely to create incremental opportunity of more than 1.5 Bn between 2020 and 2030. IV bags sales will surge further, spurred by the demand from parenteral nutrition players and intravenous therapy providers.
Among various types of bags available, single chamber IV bags more preferred. To identify hidden opportunities, VRR segments the market in terms of material type, capacity, chamber type, and application across five key regions. According to the report, polypropylene material for IV bags is expected to hold the dominant share in the market since these bags are available at a low cost and they offer better puncture resistance and durability.
COVID-19 Impact on IV Bags Market
While other markets are struggling to cope up amid disruptions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, conditions have been favoring IV bags sales. However, challenges caused due to limited raw material availability and worker’s isolation have led to slow down of manufacturing activities.
While sales via physical stores may have suffered, contrary to this, the market has been gaining from surging ecommerce sales. Thanks to the rising digital engagement as consumers aim at limiting contact, businesses too are adopting practices that complement with social distancing rules.
Additionally, after the spread of the virus, consumers have become more cautious about hygiene. Manufacturers are therefore focusing on using packaging materials that will offer protection against contaminants during transit. These factors are expected to favor growth of the market for IV bags.
Material Innovations Hold Key to Success
Ardebil’s Arta Serum Company partnered with Barekat Foundation to manufacture a new generation of IV fluid bags, which can better prevent absorption or discharge of serum through the walls of the bags. Traditional bags were known to absorb almost 30% of the medication in the solution. It incurs huge loss in case of cancer medication, which is both costly and rare. Producers claim that the new generation IV bags can overcome all deficiencies of existing plastic packs. Therefore, innovation, in terms of materials used, are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for growth of the market.
Convenience at the Core of Innovation
Some of the leading manufacturers across the world are focusing on product innovation, with their key objective being ensuring improved convenience. Fresenius Kabi’s new non-PVC intravenous fluid and drug combination delivery system exemplifies the same. Known as FreeFlex, these delivery systems are designed to improve consumer experience and offer extended pH interval and drug compatibility.
More importantly, these bags are environment-friendly and have easy-to-peel overwrap. They are available in sizes ranging from 50 ml, up to 1000 ml and more importantly they are free from any synthetic additive, glue, and PVC. Along with these attributes, these new generation bags are tamper-proof and offer better protection against airborne contamination.
The market is expected to witness similar innovations especially since several other manufacturers are aiming at improving features of their IV bags to gain competitive advantage in the market.
Incompatibility of IV Bags with Certain Biological Compounds
Risk of potential incompatibility between the solutions with the container poses threat to the market players. Often, solutions contained inside an IV bag can react to materials used for making the bag, causing imbalance or disruption in the pH value of the solution. Such incompatibilities can cause either physical or chemical reaction, with the latter being more harmful, as it increases the chances of producing toxic by-products.
For instance, as per an independent study, diazepam injection into plastic IV bags resulted in the loss of potency of the solution by more than 24%. Therefore, it was recommended that glass containers should be used to administer diazepam. Once established, such results are anticipated to hamper the growth of the global IV bags market.
Rising Incidence of Chronic Ailments Creating Growth Opportunities
One of the key factors enabling growth in the market remains the need for effectively administering parenteral drugs to patients who find it difficult to take medicines orally. For these patients, drugs need to be administered intravenously. Parenteral drugs are often prescribed for the treatment of chronic intestinal diseases, renal failure, diabetes, hepatic failure, and cancer.
VRR therefore sees the rising incidence of chronic ailments as one of the chief drivers of the market. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the prevalence of non-communicable diseases will ascent by 57% between 2015 and 2020. Against this backdrop, experts are predicting soaring demand for IV bags in the coming years.
According to the WHO, chronic ailments such as type-2 diabetes mellitus and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) are primary focus of pharmaceutical companies, since they have been looking for ways of curbing the incidence, which has been spreading rapidly.
Adoption of Parenteral Nutrition Therapy Shaping Growth
According to the WHO, nearly 11% of diseases affecting people around the world results from the lack of healthy sustenance. Parenteral nutrition (PN) has been designed to help such patients receive sufficient dietary help they require. The rising incidence of diseases such as gastro-intestinal disorders, malignancy, ischemic gut malady, Crohn’s disease, and diabetic intricacies is spurring interest in parenteral nutrition.
PN means intravenous administration of nutrients, which may incorporate protein, starch, mineral, electrolyte, fat, vitamins, and other components required by a patient, who due to a certain health complication is unable to ingest food in substantial quantity.
Administering intravenous nutrition in the prescribed way can help battle various health complexities and is a crucial part of a patient’s recuperation. As the incidence of chronic ailments is likely to rise in the near future due to nourishment scarcity and changing ecological situation, the demand for parenteral sustenance is likely to remain constant.
Sustainability Emerges as Key Strategic Move
Some of the leading manufacturers of IV bags have been shifting their focus towards sustainability to curb hazardous impact on the environment. Lately, concerns pertaining to disposability and recyclability of IV bags have been surging, which have compelled some of the leading producers to rethink their production strategies.
To reduce carbon footprint, international organizations such as the Food & Drug Administration, have issued notices recommending the use of non-PVC and non-DEHP IV bags. Following such regulations Baxter International has introduced its Aviva line, which specifically offers PVC/DEHP-free IV bags.
Non-PVC and non-DEHP materials also help in improving moisture barrier properties and thermal stability, which are considered highly crucial for IV medication. Citing some of the impressive improvements in functionalities, leading companies are willingly transitioning to more sustainable methods of production. This also is expected to help them in creating brand value among customers.
The presence of established companies as well as several smaller and local players has rendered the global IV bags market highly fragmented. VRR finds that larger percentage of the overall market share is currently held by local and domestic companies. To study the nature of competition prevailing in the market, TMR has profiled companies such as B. Braun Melsungen AG, Baxter International Inc., Pfizer Inc, Wipak Group, Technoflex S.A, Fresenius SE & Co KGaA, Sippex, Polycine GmbH, Kraton Corporation, The Metrix Company, Medicopack A/S, Macopharma SA, Haemotronic S.p.A., Renolit Solmed, Otsuka Pharmaceutical India Private Limited, Alfa Laboratories, Qosina Corporation, ICU Medical, Inc., JW Life Science and Angiplast Pvt. Ltd.
It has further classified the company in different tiers to study their competitive strengths. For instance, companies such as B. Braun Melsungen AG, Baxter International Inc., Kraton Corporation and Fresenius SE & Co KGaA are identified as Tier 1 players. These companies primarily focus on the expansion of their production capacity. In order to strengthen their footprint, they also are likely to acquire local players. Likewise, some of the companies included in Tier 2 are RENOLIT Group, Terumo Corporation, and ICU Medical, Inc.
