They are commonly used in ambulances, emergency rooms, and other critical care situations.

U.S. manual resuscitators market size, by modality, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

The market is expected to witness growth owing to the increasing incidence rates of cardiac arrest, increasing awareness initiatives, and the need for neonatal care. According to the statistics of the World Health Organization published in June 2021, approximately 17.9 million individuals died owing to cardiovascular disorders in 2019 which accounted for 32% of deaths globally. Out of which 75% of deaths are from low and middle-income countries, and approximately 85% of deaths were owing to cardiac stroke and heart attack. This is likely to favor the growth of the market.

International organizations are coming together to reduce the chances of cardiac arrest cases and improve lives. The American Heart Association is working in collaboration with the World Health Organization to reduce premature death owing to non-communicable diseases. The goal of the initiative is to reduce the burden of non-communicable diseases by 25% by 2025, which will aid to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease and stroke globally. This is anticipated to positively impact the market growth.

Additionally, rising demand for neonatal care is expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2020, the preterm birth rate accounted for 10.1% in 2020 and 10.2% in 2019 in the U.S. Every 1 in 10 infants are born preterm in the U.S. Increasing number of preterm births is poised to surge the market growth.

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), around 10% of newly born infants require assistance for breathing at birth among which an estimated 1% require intensive resuscitative steps to ensure the functionality of the heart and respiration. Hence, effective and required resuscitation during birth to these infants could aid in reduced neonatal deaths and will boost the growth of the market further.

COVID-19 Manual Resuscitators Market impact: 7.4% increase from 2019 to 2020

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The pandemic has a positive impact on the market, unlike the other sectors. The manual resuscitators were prioritized by the World Health Organization under the WHO medical device priority list in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The demand for manual resuscitators is currently normalizing from the surging demand owing to a reduction in the need for oxygen supply to patients. Although, many countries are demanding the supply of resuscitators to counter another possible wave of COVID-19 pandemic

Although the pandemic affected the supply chain and logistics of manual resuscitators, a shortage of ventilators and a rise in the number of patients suffering from COVID surged its demand. Many countries utilized manual resuscitators to overcome the shortage of ventilators.

Technological advancement and increasing demand for low-cost, portable manual resuscitators replacing high-cost ventilators are expected to aid the market growth during the forecast period.


Stringent government regulations pertaining to manual resuscitator use and manufacturing are expected to hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period. The market is highly regulated by the World Health Organization. For instance, WHO provides the technical specifications for the manufacturing of manual resuscitators.

Type Insights

Self-inflating segment dominated the market with a share of 48.9% in 2021 owing to their usability in hospital emergency departments such as neonatal and delivery wards and the increasing number of self-inflating resuscitators being launched. For instance, in April 2020, the Vecna family of companies including Vecna Healthcare, Vecna Robotics, and VecnaCares collaborated with MIT CSAIL and 10XBeta to launch the automated manual resuscitator, Ventiv. Ventiv automates the compression and relaxation of manual bags to offer constant pressure ventilation and can be used with Ambu bags or any other self-inflating bag.

Flow-inflating bags require an oxygen reservoir to ensure a 100% oxygen flow. The flow-inflating resuscitators are majorly used in neonatal care and intensive units. According to World Health Organization, in 2020, approximately 47% of deaths of children under 5 years of age occurred in the neonatal period. The major cause of death is birth asphyxia or inability to breathe at birth or some birth defects. Thus, the rising prevalence of asphyxia in neonates is expected to boost segment growth.

The T-piece segment is expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period owing to its benefits compared to the flow-inflating bags. According to the study of the pediatric research, in 2020, when compared to Self-Inflating Bags (SIBs), T-piece resuscitators (TPR) provided more consistent peak inspiratory pressure. SIBs usually produce less positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) than the required and set standards, and delivery varies depending on the set PEEP, respiratory rate, gas flow, and SIB + PEEP valve model.

Modality Insights

Based on modality, the market is segmented into reusable and disposable. The disposable segment held the largest share in 2021. The segment is anticipated to witness considerable growth during the forecast period. Disposable resuscitators are witnessing high preference among patients and healthcare professionals as they have a low risk of infections. Rising cases of cardiopulmonary disorders is boosting the segment growth.

The single-use or disposable resuscitation bags are usually made up of PVC while the reusable ones are made up of silicone. Reusable resuscitation bags can be cleaned, sterilized, and reassembled. However, they are usually more expensive than disposable ones but are more economical in the long term.

Reusable silicone resuscitation bags are more environment-friendly, latex-free, and odorless. Furthermore, they have a better feel as they are softer. These advantages are expected to drive the growth of the reusable segment.

Material Insights

Based on material, the manual resuscitator market is classified as silicone, PVC, and rubber. The silicone segment held the largest market share of 45.9% in 2021 due to its extensive use in the hospitals and outpatient setting for treating adult and pediatric patients suffering from respiratory or heart disease.

Key manufacturers are intensively employing silicone-based manual resuscitators and new innovations are majorly based on it. For instance, in September 2020, Aequs launched AQovent, a silicone-based, cost-effective, medical-grade, and mass-manufactured mechanical resuscitator. It is an emergency resuscitator that is driven by oxygen and enables constant pressurized ventilated flow automatically to the patients.

However, PVC is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Even though silicone resuscitators are more expensive when compared with PVC or rubber but in the long-term use, they are more economical when compared with disposable resuscitators. Owing to this, the demand for PVC is gradually increasing.

Technology Insights

Based on technology, the market is bifurcated into pop-off valves, PEEP valves, and others. Most of the resuscitators come only with the pressure valves and have the slot to accommodate the PEEP valve, and thus they fall into other categories. Generally, the resuscitators only with the pressure valve are used for treating a medical condition in adults.

The PEEP valve gains attention during the COVID-19 pandemic due to higher oxygen level requirements by the patients. The patients requiring oxygen of more than 0.5 FiO2 were suggested to use a PEEP valve while using manual resuscitators to improve oxygenation. This boosted the segment growth.

The other segment held the largest market share in 2021 due to extensive use in hospitals for treating adult patients. However, the pop-off valve segment is anticipated to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period. The demand for the pop-off valve is growing in NICUs as most of the neonates require respiratory support at birth.

Patient Type Insights

Based on patient type, the market is segmented into an adult, pediatric, and others. The adult segment held the largest share of 44.7% in 2021 due to the rising prevalence of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and cardiac diseases among the population which includes a large geriatric patient pool.

Another factor attributing to the growth of the adult segment could be the severe impact of COVID-19 infection on adults and more requirements for oxygen for the treatment of the infection. According to the study by Max Healthcare, oxygen requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic in India were around 63% in the first wave and 74% in the second wave.

According to the data by World Population Prospects 2019, there were approximately 703 million people aged 65 years or more in 2019 globally, and the number is expected to double to 1.5 billion by 2050. The others segment includes neonates and infants. The others segment is anticipated to witness remarkable growth during the forecast period owing to the rising investment in neonatal intensive care to counter the rising neonatal deaths globally.

Application Insights

Based on the application the manual resuscitators market is segmented into Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), cardiopulmonary arrest, and others. The other segment includes the use of resuscitators during anesthesia and for treating conditions such as asthma.

The COPD segment held the largest market share in 2021 owing to the rising burden of the disease. According to the WHO, in 2019, approximately 3.23 million people died due to COPD which is the 3rd largest cause of death globally. Around 80% of these deaths occurred in low and middle-income countries.

However, the cardiopulmonary arrest segment is expected to gain momentum and is projected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period.  This can be attributed due to growing awareness by governments and authorities about the use of manual resuscitators for cardiopulmonary treatment. For instance, the AHA has established the 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.

End-Use Insights

Based on the end-use, the market is bifurcated into hospital, out-of-hospital, ASC, military, and others. Hospitals dominated the market in 2021 with a share of 51.0%. 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.

The out-of-hospital segment is expected to witness lucrative growth owing to the increasing need to provide bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation and increasing awareness initiatives. The low survival rate of out-of-hospital CPR is increasing the need for manual resuscitators.

The rising adoption of ambulatory surgical centers is anticipated to boost the segment growth. The ambulatory surgical centers provide instant surgical care and can save time for the patients. The increasing number of ASCs and rising cases of cardiac arrest is propelling the segment growth.

Regional Insights

North America with 37.9% held the maximum market share in 2021. This can be attributed to the increasing cases of cardiac arrest and neonatal ventilation. For instance, in November 2020, the first virtual Resuscitation Science Symposium was organized in the US with the aid of the American Heart Association. The symposium was organized to discuss the latest development in resuscitation research and to share knowledge among peers.

Moreover, initiatives to control outside hospital cardiac arrest are expected to drive the market growth. For instance, 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.

Global manual resuscitators market share, by region, 2021 (%)

Asia Pacific is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period. The government of India has also undertaken initiatives to improve in-hospital neonatal care under the National Health Mission 2015 and New-born Action Plan (NAP). Under this initiative, the government of India was expected to provide 2,706 hospitals as first referral units, 14,000 newborn care corners, and 2,020 newborn stabilization units. Under NAP, the Government of India aims to reduce neonatal deaths and bring down neonatal death to single-digit by 2030. Such initiatives are anticipated to fuel market growth.
