Needle-Free IV Connectors are needleless devices for connecting administration sets, syringes, and IV catheters. Depending on internal characteristic and functioning of the parts, connectors are classified as simple and complex. Simple connectors consist of stationary internal parts, whereas, complex connectors function according to the movement of internal parts. Simple connector’s category holds the majority of the products used in the healthcare delivery. The fluid displacement and fluid pathway are determined by the motion of the internal parts namely mechanical valve, which controls the movement and direction of the fluid in complex connectors. External characteristics such as housing, shape, and color for both the type may or may not be similar. The purpose of using needle-free IV connectors apart from the ease in infusion for both care providers and patients is to reduce the risk of needle-stick injuries among the health care providers and reducing the risk of bacterial and microbial contamination.

Harmful diseases namely hepatitis and HIV can spread through improper and reuse of needles and syringes. Unsafe use of injections accounts for 5% of HIV, 40% of Hepatitis C and 32% of Hepatitis B virus infections globally. Although needle stick injuries are uncommon they are a potential problem, which can prove to be serious and are also responsible for causing above mentioned diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), needle stick injuries account for around 385,000 among healthcare workers in the U.S annually. The most important goal while employing IV administration sets and needle-free connectors is to reduce the manipulation factor as much as possible.

Rising incidence and prevalence of various chronic diseases and need for treatment is expected to boost the needle-free connectors market
North America accounts for the largest share in the global needle-free connectors market, followed by Europe. This is mainly attributed to the rise in the geriatric population and chronic diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2016, about half of American adults, that is around 117 million people had one or more chronic health conditions and one in four adults had two or more chronic health conditions. The factors driving the growth of the needle-free IV connectors market includes government investments and funding to improve healthcare infrastructure, awareness in people, and healthcare practitioners. For instance, in 2013, the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) carried out surveillance methods to identify and track device-associated infections by setting the guidelines for the prevention of central-line associated bloodstream infections. Furthermore, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2014, chronic diseases were the leading cause of mortality in Europe with over one-third of the European population above the age of 15 suffering with a chronic disease and two out of three people near 60 age had at least two chronic conditions.
