Ongoing enhancements in home infusion therapy such as availability & skills of care workers, professional education, transparency about the quality of care, and remote patient management will augment the market growth. The surging technological advancement in intravenous devices along with favorable government policies for senior citizens has driven the demand for home infusion therapy devices, considerably influencing the market expansion. Additionally, the rising prevalence of chronic ailments such as cardiovascular, orthopedic, diabetes, and cancer among others are expected to spur the market progression.

However, a dearth of reimbursement for home infusion therapy may hamper the market demand. Despite comprehensive support for home infusion therapy among most care organizations, private insurers, and others, several payors have decreased their reimbursement rates for individual infusion therapies. This threatens their use in various administration settings comprising home settings. Despite the inherent safety advantages of home infusion therapy and long-term cost savings, many patients can hardly afford this option owing to the inappropriate reimbursement. Hence, the reimbursement cuts may limit the industry size in the coming years. Similarly, product recall and the presence of a complicated reimbursement framework are other major factors restricting the industry growth.

The COVID-19 arose as an unprecedented public health concern worldwide and has positively impacted the home infusion therapy market value. The patients suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer among others are more vulnerable and at a high risk of COVID-19. The demand and adoption of infusion devices such as infusion pumps, intravenous sets, IV cannulas, etc. in home settings have increased significantly during this pandemic. This is attributed to the surging demand for space & beds in hospitals and increased risk of coronavirus infection.

Due to COVID-19, nations across the globe have rapidly arranged services to ensure suitable care for chronically ill patients during the pandemic. The government of various nations including the U.S. has accelerated the authorization of changes in clinical practice to allow teleconsultation, thereby balanced the drawbacks of hospital visits during the pandemic.

Growing hospital-acquired infection to spur the market revenue

Rising hospital-acquired infection has led to an increase in demand for the home infusion therapy that is slated to drive the industry expansion positively. Increasing incidences of hospital-acquired cross-contamination and infections are a growing concern, thereby boosting the industry progression. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on any given day, around 1 in 31 hospital patients has at least one hospital-associated infection. According to the World Health Organization, the prevalence of hospital-associated infection varies between 5.7% and 19.1% in low- and middle-income nations. Nosocomial infections that are acquired through invasive procedures occur within 48 hours after hospitalizing a patient. This entry of pathogens into the patient’s body can affect 7 to 10 out of 100 patients admitted to the hospital in developed and developing nations, respectively. Hence, the above statistics are set to positively propel the industry demand in the coming years. The growing awareness of patients towards hygiene, safety, and sanitation that helps to prevent cross-contamination and infections has also resulted in augmented acceptance of home infusion therapy.

Technological advancements in infusion pumps will foster the market growth
