14 Nov 2011 • by Natalie Aster

Mumbai, India – Netscribes (India) Pvt. Ltd., a knowledge consulting solutions company, announces the launch of the report “Syringes and Needles Market in India”. The Indian syringes & needles market is growing steadily owing to the better healthcare facilities arising from the improved infrastructure. Due to the growing target base, there is huge potential for players to grow and lucratively serve the market.

In the highly import dependent Indian medical devices market, a large number of indigenous manufacturers of syringes & needles have managed to come up. However it does not mean that imports are low for this market. Imports, as in the case with other medical devices, are quite high but the domestic manufacturers have been able to tap foreign markets through increasing exports. The target base of consumers is growing steadily which is expected to significantly boost sales in the market.
