Report Outlook

The size of the worldwide market for acupuncture needles, which was estimated at USD 251.28 million in 2023 is anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2024 to 2032. One of the main drivers of market expansion is the rise in chronic diseases like diabetes, obesity, and other autoimmune diseases around the world as a result of things like antimicrobial resistance, unhealthy and sedentary lifestyles, alcohol consumption, and smoking. Over 100.0 million Americans were dealing with diabetes or prediabetes conditions in 2022, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Diabetes Statistic Report. Additionally, according to the WHO, diabetes was directly responsible for roughly 1.6 million deaths worldwide in 2021. Chronic disease-related discomfort can be effectively treated and managed with acupuncture.

The frequency of surgeries has also grown as a result of the rise in chronic conditions. The majority of surgical wounds are painful, deep, and relatively big in size. Acupuncture effectively relieves the patients' physical and emotional suffering in these situations. The demand for this procedure is rising worldwide as a result of the fact that it also aids in the recovery from post-surgical trauma. As a result, it is anticipated that the growing number of surgeries will boost demand for acupuncture treatments, driving the acupuncture needles market to expand.

One of the primary causes of the growing demand for acupuncture is the rising incidence of diabetes and hypertension. In 2021, the WHO released a report estimating that 1.13 billion people worldwide had hypertension. Hypertension, which is thought to impact about 1.00 billion people worldwide, is primarily brought on by diabetes. Furthermore, people who have long-term diabetes frequently develop painful diabetic leg ulcers. In these situations, acupuncture therapy aids people with these conditions in lessening their pain. By providing mental relief, it also aids in lowering hypertension, propelling the market for acupuncture needles to expand over the forecast period.

One of the key factors affecting the industry is the growing elderly population in the world. Because the elderly population is more susceptible to different chronic diseases and chronic wounds, the rise in the elderly population may have a positive effect on the market for acupuncture needles. Older individuals prefer to choose acupuncture treatment because the likelihood of experiencing any side effects is extremely low. Additionally, it provides relief for both bodily and mental pain in the body.

In 2022, the disposable needles segment has accounted for the largest market share.

The disposable needles category had the largest market share and is projected to expand at the fastest rate. The low chance of disease transmission from patient to patient and the product's low cost are two of the many benefits that are contributing to the segment's growth. In addition, due to accessibility and safety concerns, most healthcare experts advise using disposable products. Thus, over the course of the forecast period, significant segment growth is expected.

Over the course of the forecast period, the non-disposable needles market is expected to expand at a moderate rate. One of the main drawbacks that accounts for the product's low material rate is the high danger of disease transmission from patient to patient using non-disposable needles.

The hospital segment will account for a higher share of the market during forthcoming year

The market for acupuncture needles in hospitals had the highest revenue share in 2022. The primary drivers of segment development are the rising incidences of venous leg ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers.
