The global vein illuminator market was valued at USD 116.3 Million in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 944.8 Million by the year 2032, at a CAGR of 29.70%. Vein illuminator is a device which is having visualizing technology which is used by healthcare professionals to locate a superficial vein for pricking needle. This device can be held above the hand. The device is generally used for the geriatric population as their skin is fragile and it becomes difficult for doctors and nurses to locate a vein, also the device is used for dark-skinned patients, obese patients, whose veins may not be visible, patients suffering from burn injuries, agitated patients, thus it can be used for a wide variety of patients to pricking unnecessary needle sticks to the patient. Vein illuminator market comprises of the devices used for vein translucency during venipuncture procedure.
The device can be tabletop vein illuminators and handheld vein illuminator. These devices have a high demand rate in hospitals and clinics. Vein illuminator market revenue is growing with a significant rate due to increasing usage of this device during the majority of peripherally inserted central catheter procedures in hospitals. Increasing usage of Intravenous therapy and new technologies that help into the process for the assessment, planning, intervention, and evaluation of inserting PIV catheters are some factors which help in the growth of the market. The vein illuminator device is expensive and the method of vein detection is conventional, which can hamper the market growth. In June 2023, Christie Medical Holdings announced the improvement in vein view technology and such product improvements fulfill the exact needs of the patients and provide enhanced patient satisfaction bringing about incremental market growth.
Many of the technologies being used currently have different versions of their product tailored to the specific needs of the users. Devices are chosen according to specific working environments. Emergency medicine requires devices that are portable, easy and fast to operate, and can work in any lighting conditions. The most suitable ones are the pressure sensors, which are light in weight, and easy to operate; NIR devices, which can be portable and can work in any lighting condition; and a multispectral device whose military version is portable, can work in any lighting condition, and has strong lenses to accommodate extreme weather. Less suitable devices for emergency medicine are color vision glasses and LED technology, both which require controllable lighting conditions. In hospitals, where lighting conditions are controllable and mobility is unnecessary in most departments, each of the technologies described above is suitable, including the innovative robotics devices under development. The eventual availability of these devices will enable practitioners to obtain a more accurate picture and better understanding of the region of interest, automate the detection and cannula insertion process so as to avoid complications.
