Fluid management involves medical intervention in promoting body fluid balance to prevent complications resulting from undesired fluid levels. Fluid systems range from standalones (include dialyzers, insufflators, suction/ evacuation & irrigation, fluid warming systems and waste management systems) to fully integrated systems, with an increasing shift towards the latter for providing overall solutions. Reusable system components and accessories are being replaced by one time use/ disposable ones to ensure patient safety. Visualization systems help in quick and improved diagnosis of critical medical conditions and include endoscopic cameras, video processors, camera heads, video converters, transmitters & receivers, light sources & cables, monitors & display systems, carts and other equipments. Fluid management and visualization systems have found applications in the fields of anesthesiology, dental surgery, otoscopy, laryngoscopy, broncoscopy, cardiology, neurology, athroscopy, laparoscopy, gynecology/ obstetrics, urology and gastroenterology. Changing lifestyles, environmental pollution and various other factors have resulted in conditions negatively affecting human health. Over the years, people have become more prone to nephrological, neurological, gastrointestinal, orthopedic and laparoscopic diseases. In addition, health problems faced by elderly population segments are preferable to be treated by these techniques due to their low complexity. Minimal invasive nature of treatment from these systems and shorter recuperative durations are major factors driving the growth of this market. Cost efficiency of its procedures and pre and post operative care are increasing its preference among patients. With rising efficiency in outcomes, endoscopic procedures are a common area of application for these devices in treatment of disorders such as obesity, gastroesophageal reflux disorders and cancer. However, development of fluid management and visualization systems is cost intensive. Hospitals in developing countries are unable to support them due to huge investments. The availability of trained specialists to handle these equipments to perform efficient surgeries is low, resulting in resource wastage.
The already efficient medical infrastructures of North America and Europe are saturated and therefore expected to grow at relatively slower pace than Asia Pacific, which is estimated to hold great potential for fluid management and visualization systems market. This can be attributed to the growing awareness among patients for minimum invasive surgeries and endosurgical procedures. Moreover, government funding in countries of India and China for research and development of technology and medical infrastructure are fuelling its market growth in this region. A few participants of this market are AngioDynamics Inc., B Braun Melsungen AG, Cardinal Health Inc, ConMed Corporation, Ecolab, Inc., Karl Storz GmbH & Co. KG, Olympus Corporation, Richard Wolf GmbH, Smith & Nephew PLC, Smiths Medical, Stryker Corporation and Zimmer Holdings Inc.
