A needle is a medical instrument that is pointed and enters into the skin either to inject or extract fluids such as liquid medicines, drugs or blood. It enters the skin and is also referred to as ‘sharps’. A needle contains a sharp opening at the end and is mostly used with a syringe. Needle recapping is performed to dispose-off the needle after the syringe has been used. Most of the times it is not advised to dispose the needle by needle recapping, as it poses a serious threat of needle stick injuries to the person performing it or could also lead to infections of the skin for the patient with the liquid in the syringe. According to the Modern Health Association, approximately 600,000 cases of healthcare risk injuries by needle stick injuries are reported every year and among these 600,000 cases, almost 39 cases are infected with HIV. Needle recapping is recommended for rare cases in certain dental and medical cases. Needle recapping is usually done by three methods, by using a tong, with a recapping device and by the one-hand scoop method. Certain safety precautions are recommended for performing needle recapping. Immediate disposing is required after needle recapping.
The increase in dental disorders is leading to an increase in dental surgery procedures, which is one of the driving factors for the needle recapping market. Lack of awareness about the potential hazards and needle stick injuries leading to major life threats is also expected to drive the market for needle recapping over the forecast period. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration prohibits needle recapping, except for situations where there is no other feasible option. Certain acts such as the Needle Stick Safety and Prevention Act is also driving the market for needle recapping. However, several major life threats such as needle stick injuries and transmission of infections with diseases might hinder the market growth for needle recapping over the forecast period. Certain pre-filled syringes might come in contact with the skin and cause skin allergies and infection. This could also hinder the market growth for needle recapping over the forecast period.
