The global manual resuscitator market size was valued at USD 363 million in 2015. The Bag Valve Masks (BVM) market is expected to witness a lucrative growth owing to the increasing incidence rates of cardiac arrest, increasing awareness initiatives and simulation websites, and the need for neonatal care.
In May 2016, the American Heart Association (AHA) released a snapshot of the heart disease status around the globe. The health data compiled from around 190 counties showed heart disease to be the prime cause of death. There are around 17.3 million deaths each year and the number is expectedto rise over 23.6 million by 2030.
International organizations are coming together to reduce the chances of cardiac arrest cases and improve lives. The AHA is working in collaboration with Cardiology Group and the United Nations to launch an evidence-based study. The study will be a collection of data from countries all around.The initiatives taken have reduced the overall death rates by 30.8% from 2001 to 2011.
Global manual resuscitator market, by type, 2013 - 2024 (USD Million)
Self-inflating resuscitator dominated the market owing to their usability in hospital emergency departments such as neonatal and delivery ward and the increasing number of self-inflating resuscitators being launched. In January 2015, Laerdal filed a premarket approval (PMA) for its NeoNatalie resuscitator. The reusable self-inflating resuscitator was equivalent to Ambu Mark IV Baby Resuscitator. The NeoNatalie resuscitator was used for neonatal resuscitation up to 5kg.
Flow-inflating bags require an oxygen reservoir to ensure 100% oxygen flow. The flow-inflating resuscitators are majorly used in the neonatal care and intensive units. According to the 2012 American Academy of Pediatrics Instructor Update, infants need flow-inflating bags for administrating Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Therapy (CPAP). As the available self-inflating bags cannot deliver CPAP, flow-inflating bags are preferred for neonatal care.
Hospitals dominated the manual resuscitators end use market in 2015 with revenue estimated at over USD 240 million in 2015. BVMs in hospitals are used in cases of cardiac arrest, intensive care, and neonatal care. The American Health Association (AHA) published the first guideline for reviewing, researching, and reporting in-hospital resuscitation. The In-hospital Utstein Style was published as a mechanism of international standardization and is used as a reporting system for patient monitoring. For instance, the AHA has established National Registry of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (NRCPR), which acts as a multi-site data collection source. The registry enables inter-facility comparison between various hospitals, establishing a standardized mechanism.
The use of Outside hospital resuscitators is expected to witness a faster growth owing to the increasing need to provide bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the related awareness initiatives taken. The main reasons why bystanders are not able to perform CPR are the unavailability of CPR kits in the vicinity and lack of training. In July 2014, the British Heart Foundation improved the public access to resuscitators by committing to fund the initiative, where a national public access defibrillators database would be set up in the UK to overcome these issues.
The North America manual resuscitators market was the largest in 2014 and dominated the market with around USD 142 million in 2015. The demand for resuscitators in North America is expected to witness growth owing to the increasing cases of cardiac arrest and neonatal ventillation.
Moreover, companies are launching newer technologically advanced products to provide state-of-the-art resuscitation. In November 2015, Foothills Hospital developed a device to resuscitate a baby while its umbilical cord is still attached. Inspire, a portable integrated station that supports transfusion and resuscitation is expected to enhance urgent care.
Moreover, initiatives to control the Outside hospital cardiac arrest are expected to drive the demand for resuscitators. Research networks, such as the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC), are established to study better ways to treat Outside hospital cardiac arrest and trauma cases. The ROC is a clinical research network of ten regional centers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The market in APAC is untapped and hence expected to witness the fastest growth owing to the increasing need for ventilation. Realizing the need for development, governments have takenefforts to bring in newer technologies, which can be user-friendly and effective. In October 2015, the government of India introduced the augmented infant resuscitator and the device provideshealthcare providers with details of resuscitation.
Moreover, the government of India has also undertaken initiatives to improve the in-hospital neonatal care under the National Health Mission 2015. Under this initiative, the government of India will provide 2,706 hospitals as first referral units, 14,000 newborn care corners, and 2,020 newborn stabilization units.
