Global artificial ventilation and anesthesia masks market size was valued at USD 1,715.3 million in 2014. Key application areas of these masks include operation room, emergency room, intensive care units, and dental rooms for intubation, sedation, and assisted respiratory procedures.
Rising geriatric population prone to various diseases, increasing emergency room procedures, and the growth of home care health services are amongst key drivers attributing to the market growth. Furthermore, availability of various ventilation masks available in the market which include full face masks, nasal masks, hybrid masks, oral masks and nasal pillows are going to provide patients suffering from sleep apnea with a wide variety of products to choose from thus boosting market growth.
According to estimates published by the United Nations in 2012, the global geriatric population was nearly 809.4 million and is expected to grow more than double by 2050 to reach an estimated population of over 2,000 million. The growth in geriatric population is a major factor contributing to high prevalence rates of various diseases such as COPD, sleep apnea cancers, coronary artery diseases, kidney failures, and others.
The impact of growing geriatric population on COPD prevalence is very high and as per the WHO estimates, COPD is predicted to be the third leading cause of death worldwide. In the U.S. alone, there were approximately 12.7 million adults aged over 18 reported to have COPD. Increasing need of emergency treatment for prolonged illnesses and long-term home care treatment associated with lung diseases in children as well as adults are expected to drive the growth of artificial ventilation and anesthesia masks market over the next seven years.
North America artificial ventilation and anesthesia masks market for high-risk procedures by application, 2012-2022, (USD Million)
Artificial ventilation and anesthesia masks market is segmented on the basis of application as operation room, intensive care units, emergency room, dental, and home care. Each application segment is classified by risk type as high risk, moderate and low risk. The high risk and moderate risk procedures require intubation and sedation prior to any surgery. The low-risk procedures do not require intubation, however, these ventilation masks are used for oxygen and anesthesia supply to the patient.
The healthcare providers assess the risk to the patient and determine the need to use invasive ventilation or non-invasive ventilation. The use of noninvasive masks in accident and trauma cases, lung failure, and other emergency cases is extremely critical and quick response is required to save the patient’s life.
In 2014, operating room accounted for the majority of share of over 87% in high-risk procedures and is expected to maintain its share over the forecast period. Key factors attributing to its large share include growing prevalence of chronic diseases and emergency cases coupled with constantly improving reimbursement scenario which are increasing the demand for surgical procedures are expected to increase the usage rates of ventilation and anesthesia masks over the next seven years.
As per the data published by the U.S. CDC, the National Hospital Discharge survey in 2010, over 52 million surgical procedures were performed. The number of surgeries performed increases year-on-year due to rapid growth in the geriatric population suffering from various diseases, increase in accidents and others, and as a consequence, usage rates of ventilation masks are expected to witness exponential growth in the next seven years.
North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, RoW are the key regional markets analyzed in the study. In 2014, North America accounted for the largest share of over 55% in 2014. Key factors attributing to its high share are the presence of high-quality healthcare infrastructure, better reimbursement scenario, and high investment in research and development. Furthermore, technological advancements, high consumer awareness about different treatments available, products and associated benefits are the key forces impacting overall market dynamics
However, Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region over the forecast period, mainly due to growth in public and private healthcare facilities, improvement in reimbursement scenario, and increase in the disease prevalence rates.
