The vascular access device market includes implantable ports, port needles, central venous catheters (CVCs), dialysis catheters, peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs), peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVCs), catheter securement devices, syringes and needles. Two markets are driving significant growth in the overall vascular access market: the PICC and PIVC markets. Growth in the PICC market is driven by the growing number of nurses who are placing PICCs. It is expected that this trend will continue and will increase if legislation in certain countries that prohibit nurses from placing PICCs changes. The PIVC is growing due to the shift towards premium-priced safety devices driven by newly implemented legislation that aims to prevent needlestick injuries in hospitals.
