Global Cannula Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global cannula market is forecasted to value USD 255.3 million by 2028 and USD 192.22 million in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 5.84% during the forecast period.

The cannula is a tube inserted into the body for fluid injection, removal of fluid, and data collection. A cannula can cover the inner and outer layers of a trocar needle, thus increasing the effective length of needles by about half the original length of the needle. In veterinary applications, it relieves cattle from bloating and pressure in the abdomen, caused mainly by the accidental consumption of legumes. They are also used in the insertion of VeriChip. In aesthetic medicine, it finds its application in the form of the blunt-tip cannula, a small tube with an edge used for subdermal injection of gels or fluids. It is also used in liposuction procedures for injecting cosmetic wrinkle filters like collagen and hyaluronic acid. Finally, a push-pull cannula, which can inject and withdraw fluid, is used to study the effects of different chemicals on a cell.


Growing advancements in healthcare facilities, YOY growth in the number of surgical procedures, and YOY growth in the patient count worldwide are primarily driving the global cannula market growth.

In addition, growing investments to do R&D, growing government funding, and YOY growth in the number of minimally invasive surgeries are further expected to fuel the market’s growth rate. Medical cannulas are reduced procedural time with use and faster patient recovery times. The global cannula market is expected to experience lucrative growth during the forecast period as public and private R&D funding increases, the number of patients undergoing surgical procedures improves, the development of healthcare infrastructures across the world, the introduction of new technologies developed by market partners such as single-use cannulas for surgical use, the introduction of cannula PROTEK Duo and the newer injection molding technology developed for the manufacture of plastic medical needles.

Cardiac cannula accounts for most of the cannula market mainly due to the high prevalence rate of cardiovascular disease and the large number of hospitalizations associated with heart disease. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular disease causes the highest number of deaths globally, accounting for an estimated 17.9 million deaths yearly. In addition, the Heart Foundation, Australia, states that cardiovascular disease is one of the main reasons for hospitalizations and resulted in 523,855 hospitalizations between 2017 and 2018 and played a role in another 800,000 hospitalizations in Australia. Therefore, the high prevalence of cardiovascular disease, excessive hospitalizations, and associated morbidity and mortality rates are driving increased demand for cardiac cannulas for intravenous drug delivery.

Furthermore, the growing incidence of various diseases due to the increasing adoption of a sedentary lifestyle among people is expected to impact product sales positively. In addition, the increasing demand for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) will drive the demand for cannulas during the forecast period. Advanced cannulas with improved functionality allow shorter procedure time and faster patient recovery. Therefore, the increasing availability of these devices is also likely to fuel the market. Other factors that benefit the growth of the market include the increase in the number of patients undergoing surgical procedures, the advancement of healthcare infrastructure, the increasing number of surgeries among the elderly, and the increasing prevalence of diseases related to lifestyles, such as obesity and diabetes, and the factors are expected to provide increased opportunities in upcoming years.


However, strict government regulations and a lack of trained or trained physicians followed by cannulation errors may hamper the market's growth during the forecast period. The uncertain regulatory framework is slowing the growth of the cannula market. As a result, intense competition is expected to challenge the cannula market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global cannula market:

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic caused by the reagent SARS-CoV-2 affects millions of people and the healthcare industry. Across the world, the business world has seen a significant downturn in growth due to COVID-19, whereas the healthcare industry had a mixed impact. The global cannula market faced difficulty in the first half of 2020. Lockdown restrictions and a ban on flights have created a slight decline in the market's growth rate. During COVID-19, many hospitals and clinics have prioritized treating patients with coronavirus and given less priority to non-essential medical procedures. This has reduced demand for cannulas and hampered the market’s growth rate for a short time. However, due to the unlock guidelines governments released worldwide, the cannula market recovery is picking up and is predicted to register a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
