Respiratory care devices are used for diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, tuberculosis, and pneumonia. These devices provide enhanced care to patients suffering from such acute and chronic respiratory diseases. The report analyzes the respiratory care devices market on the basis of product type, end user, and geography.
According to the AMR analysis, the pulse oximetry market is expected to grow at a steady rate throughout the forecast period. Smart pulse oximeters devices have gained popularity as compared to other respiratory care devices in the recent years. It has become a vital tool for clinicians for continuous monitoring of a patient’s arterial oxygen saturation (SaO2) by calculating an estimate of the SaO2 (known as the SpO2) using an algorithm, and displaying the readout. Several companies have focused on developing cost-effective pulse oximeters to sustain the intense competition in the emerging and price-competitive markets. For instance, in January 2015, Masimo Medical Technologies India Pvt. Ltd. launched a low-cost pulse oximeter, the Sat 901+, in India. The product incorporates several advanced features to facilitate handheld as well as bedside monitoring, including acute care and alternate care settings such as long-term care facilities, homecare, and sleep laboratories. Such advancements in this sector is expected to drive the respiratory care monitoring devices market.
Surge in Global Geriatric Population
The global geriatric population has witnessed an unprecedented increase in the recent years. Aging is associated with progressive decline in lung function and increase in prevalence of respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma. The respiratory system undergoes various anatomical, physiological, and immunological changes with increase in age. The structural changes, including deformities in chest wall and thoracic spine, impair the functioning of the respiratory system and lead to complications in breathing. The incidence of respiratory diseases is expected to increase in the near future; thereby driving the global respiratory care monitoring devices market.
