Such high occurrences of hospital-acquired infections demand use of disinfection caps. These caps are utilized in the disinfection of IV connectors together with removal of bacteria and various other microorganisms. This factor is likely to amplify growth opportunities for the global disinfection cap market in the forthcoming years.

Rise in the Prevalence of Cancer to Shoot Up Demand in the Market

A rise in the number of cases of chronic illnesses, such as cancer, diabetes, drives the demand for use of parenteral nutrition. This assists in the administration of vital nutrients thereby assisting in the maintenance of hydration, energy, and strength level in patients suffering from an illness. Increased prevalence of cancer is predicted to amplify the growth of the global disinfection cap market in the years to com. Disinfection caps are utilized for the purpose of decontamination of IV connectors that are used in the supply of nutrition to cancer stricken patients.

Cancer often results in the rise of abnormal functioning of gastrointestinal tract, development of various physical obstructions, and increased occurrences of stomach ulcers.
