An Overview of the Syringe Manufacturers in India

India is estimated to use 17.76 Crores of syringes per day during a pandemic situation, according to syringe producers. Doctors, as well as research and development specialists, utilize syringes to inject medications into patients via intramuscular or intravenous routes. Disposable syringes are plastic syringes that are used in human and veterinary medicine. Disposable syringes are progressively replacing old age syringes because they are hygienic to use, fully protected, and cost less. Syringes are divided into two or three portions and exist in a variety of sizes and shapes, including 1.0 ml, 2.0 ml, 5.0 ml, 10.0 ml, and 50.00 ml.

According to Rajiv Nath, founder and forum coordinator of the Association of Indian Medical Device Industry (AIMED) and Hindustan Syringes and the Medical Devices Ltd (the country's largest syringe producer), said the company has supplied the Centre with around 1.9 billion single-use auto-disable 0.5 ml syringes for vaccination during the pandemic serge.
