During the COVID-19 pandemic, market players such as Medtronic experienced a surge in the demand for capnography devices, among other respiratory system-related products. This was mostly because capnography devices fall under the category of non-invasive remote monitoring devices and can be used to support patient monitoring during the treatment of COVID-19, as per the guidelines of the U.S. FDA. This positively impacted the growth of the market for capnography devices during the pandemic.

Strategic initiatives by the key players have also fueled the growth of the market for capnography devices during the forecast period. For instance, in September 2020, Capsule Technologies received FDA approval for its new connected capnography-monitoring technology. With this, the company enhanced its product portfolio. Likewise, in August 2019, Smiths Medical entered into a partnership with Medline Industries for the distribution of new products, which increased its market penetration.

Component Insights

The others segment dominated the market for capnography devices and accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 50.0% in 2020. The OEM modules segment is further bifurcated on the basis of sources, into infrared sources and others. Other sources include thermal sources, filter detectors, connectors, pumps, brushless motors, and connector reprogramming firmware.

Product Insights

The handheld product segment dominated the market for capnography devices and accounted for the largest revenue share of 60.6% in 2020 as a result of the increasing adoption rate due to the associated benefits of handheld capnographs. These majorly include high portability, facilitation of required oxygen saturation levels in operative procedures, high durability, and low associated costs.

Multiparameter products are expected to witness a lucrative CAGR of over 8.5% during the forecast period owing to their increasing applications in emergency medicines and procedural sedation. Furthermore, advancements in capnographs inclusive of miniaturization of sensors and incorporation of multi-sensors in a single device to enable simultaneous monitoring of multi-gasses have resulted in easy and faster sample collection and long-term deployment. The aforementioned factors are anticipated to propel the demand for multiparameter capnographs during the forecast period.

Technology Insights

The sidestream technology segment dominated the market for capnography devices and accounted for the largest revenue share of 53.2% in 2020 as a consequence of its wide usage in anesthesia monitoring. Sidestream technologically enabled devices offer benefits, such as ease-of-connection, fewer problems in sterilization, and help in monitoring of non-incubated substances with the help of nasal adapters. These factors are responsible for segment growth.

On the other hand, the microstream segment is expected to register lucrative growth owing to its rising penetration over the forecast period. Increasing penetration of these products can be attributed to technological advancements in this field, thus expanding opportunities for growth. In addition, microstream technology can be used in intubated as well as non-intubated patients and patients of all age groups.

End-use Insights

The hospital segment dominated the market for capnography devices and held the largest revenue share of 58.5% in 2020. It is used as a preventive measure to tackle critical events in ICUs. The adoption of capnography procedures is increased in hospitals owing to their enhanced capabilities for calculating patient ventilators measurement, minimally invasive nature, and ease-of-usage. The industry is expected to register upward growth due to the rising incidences of cardiac arrest and thereby creating the need for effective patient monitoring during the forecast period.

Moreover, organizations such as the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Uruguayan Society of Anesthesiologists recommended capnography monitoring during anesthetics and procedural sedation. These guidelines support the importance of capnography devices for hospital use. In addition, the high influence of the U.S. healthcare system on the global health care industry has further augmented segment growth.

Application Insights

The emergency medicine segment dominated the market for capnography devices and accounted for the largest revenue share of 23.8% in 2020. Capnography is used in a pre-hospital emergency setting to ensure that endotracheal tubes are placed correctly. In addition, the device can provide the information required to monitor and adjust ventilation parameters much more sensitively and quickly. Other applications of capnography include emergency medicine, pain management, critical care, and others.

Global capnography devices market share, by application, 2020 (%)

This device also has wide applications in the treatment of procedural sedation in dentistry and is thereby expected to witness a lucrative CAGR of 10.9% over the forecast period. It offers non-invasive, real-time, and continuous measurement by producing capnograms, which help in assessing the present status of a patient's circulatory and metabolic systems. These associated benefits are expected to increase the adoption of these devices, thereby providing growth to the market for capnography devices in the near future.

Regional Insights

In 2020, North America dominated the market for capnography devices and held the largest revenue share of 43.3%.
