Butterfly needles are thin, flexible needles used for blood draws, IV starts and specimen collections. They feature an integrated plastic “wing” on both sides of the needle hub that expands out, stabilizing the needle during venipuncture and reducing the chances of needle sticks and potential exposure injuries. Butterfly needles allow for quick, pain-free blood draws on infants, children, the elderly and patients with delicate or compromised veins.
The global Butterfly Needles Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.16 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.7% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
