Industry Insights

The global acupuncture needles market size has generated a revenue of USD 102.1 million in 2019. It is also estimated to register an 8.0% CAGR from 2020 to 2027. The rising prevalence of chronic diseases like obesity, autoimmune diseases, and diabetes among the millennial population is expected to drive the growth of the market.

Several factors like the adoption of sedentary and unhealthy lifestyles, excessive alcohol consumption, and smoking are the root cause of the increase in the number of chronic diseases. For instance, the WHO stated that around 1.6 million deaths across the globe were caused due to diabetes in 2016. As the acupuncture method is effective against the treatment of chronic diseases, the adoption of acupuncture needles is estimated to increase rapidly in the upcoming years.

The U.S. acupuncture needles market

The increasing number of chronic diseases has increased to the number of surgeries associated with them. As surgical wounds have larger areas and are deeper in pain, the need for needles is foreseen to provide relief to the patients. Moreover, the benefit of these acupuncture needles in overcoming post-surgical trauma is further estimated to augment their demand.

Product Insights

The product segment of disposable needles accounted for the dominant share of 56.1% across the global market in 2019. It is estimated to continue dominance in the upcoming years. This growth can be attributed to the reduction in risk associated with disease transmission among patients and its cost-effective nature. Several healthcare professionals are recommending the usage of disposable needles owing to ease of availability and safety issues.

The segment of non-disposable acupuncture needles is projected to witness moderate growth in the upcoming years. An increase in the risk associated with disease transmission among patients is estimated to hamper the growth of this segment. But, due to the lack of knowledge among patients, such needles are still being used across underdeveloped countries.

End-use Insights

The end-user segment of hospitals accounted for the highest share of around 44.0% across the global market in 2019. The rising number of ulcer cases related to venous leg and diabetic foot are projected to propel the market growth for this segment. Moreover, the rising number of surgical wounds while carrying out surgeries is expected to augment the market growth for acupuncture needles in hospitals.

The clinical end-user segment is expected to register significant growth in the upcoming years. The exponentially rising number of clinics across developed and developing regions are expected to augment the growth for this segment. Also, propelling the need for clinical treatment of several diseases is expected to generate demand for acupuncture needles.

Material Insights

The stainless steel material segment accounted for the largest share of 44.1% across the global market in 2019. It is also estimated to account for the highest CAGR in the upcoming years. This can be attributed to its features such as low cost and ease of availability.

Global acupuncture needles market

The segment of silver needles is expected to witness substantial growth from 2020 to 2027. This can be associated with advantages like enhanced thermal effect in the warm acupuncture procedure due to its more thermal conductivity. Moreover, rapid and better relief offered to the patients by the usage of this material is further expected to fuel up the market growth.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific held the dominant share of around 45.3% across the global acupuncture needles market in 2019. It is also projected to witness the highest CAGR of 8.4% in the upcoming years. Acupuncture is widely accepted as an effective and authentic medical treatment across Japan and China. Moreover, the growing industry of medical tourism is expected to further fuel up market growth.

North America is also projected to register significant growth from 2020 to 2027. The surging number of hypertension and diabetes problems among the millennial population due to work-life imbalance has contributed majorly towards the market growth across this region. Moreover, the rising number of surgical procedures across the U.S. and Canada are also triggering up the demand for acupuncture procedures.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The acupuncture needles market has been positively impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The number of hospitalized and high-risk patients has increased significantly during the pandemic period. Since the COVID infected severe cases require clinical or hospitalized treatment, the need for disposable equipment like needles, PPE kits and gloves had increased exponentially. As the supply chain of key players was hampered due to restrictions over cargo movement, many local players had started leveraging this situation to widen their geographical presence. Moreover, rapid innovation and product development is undertaken by the key players to enhance the user experience among patients is projected to augment the market growth in the upcoming post-pandemic years.
