The ASP of a port needle in Japan declined in each of the past few years. The ASP has declined significantly due to competition. Nipro Medical holds the majority of the conventional port needle market and is a low-cost producer. In contrast, the conversion to premium-priced safety products had a positive effect on prices. The shift will pick up as prices for safety devices decrease. In the past this shift was slow because practitioners are not required to use safety devices.
The largest segment in the total port needle market was the safety port needles, which accounted for the majority of the total market value. This segment is experiencing higher unit sales growth than the conventional port needle segment; however, this is slightly balanced by more moderate price declines.
