Global Intravenous Solutions Market Trends:
Over the past few years, the prevalence of hectic work schedules and unhealthy lifestyles has increased across the globe. The consequent decline in physical activity and proper nutrition has led to a rise in the incidences of chronic diseases, which in turn has boosted the demand for intravenous solutions. Besides, there has been significant growth in the production of IV fluids, particularly in developed countries. For instance, it was reported that due to the shortage of IV saline, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other market players have been making efforts to mitigate the crisis. In line with this, the US-based marketing and technology company, Merge, partnered with the innovative medical products and services provider, B. Braun Medical, to introduce the ‘Solutions for Life’ omnichannel campaign in May 2019. This initiative is aimed to ensure a consistent supply of IV solutions, approved by the US FDA, across the country. On account of these factors, the market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 6.2% during 2019-2024, reaching a value of US$ 11.5 Billion in 2024.
