Smoke Evacuation System Market Trends

The global smoke evacuation system market size was valued at USD 184.2 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.44% from 2023 to 2030. An increasing number of electrosurgery procedures, medical tourism for cosmetic surgeries, and new product launches are anticipated to drive market growth. According to a study published in the journal JAMA Network Open, around 13 million surgeries were identified in the U.S. from January 2019 to 2021. Thus, the rising number of surgical procedures is anticipated to drive the market growth. Smoke evacuation and filtering systems are not mandatory during laparoscopic surgeries, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

However, with the COVID-19 pandemic, major concerns have been raised regarding Aerosol-generating Procedures (AGPs), including laparoscopy. It has been observed that the SARS-CoV-2 virus has the ability to remain in the aerosols for up to 3 hours. Thus, effective measures for the evacuation of smoke and aerosols must be taken near infected patients and/or during AGPs to significantly reduce the risk of transmission. This has heightened the need for the smoke evacuation system, thereby fueling market growth. Developing countries, such as China, Thailand, India, Brazil, and Mexico, are constantly improving their healthcare infrastructure to provide treatments/surgeries at lower costs, such as cosmetic surgeries and dental care programs, boosting medical tourism in these countries.

Some of the most common procedures performed in these countries are breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty, rhytidectomy, and liposuction. Rising health spending and improving healthcare infrastructure in these nations are anticipated to create new growth opportunities for the market. Furthermore, smoke evacuation platforms are effectively being used with electrosurgical generators known to produce a significant amount of smoke plume. This is expected to help streamline the surgical workflow. In July 2020, Palliare received FDA 510(k) approval for EVA15 insufflator and smoke evacuation system. EVA15 is designed to meet the insufflation requirement during robotic and endoscopic surgery. Thus, the launch of innovative products is likely to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Product Insights

Based on product, the market is segmented into smoke evacuating systems, smoke evacuation pencils & wands, smoke evacuation filters, smoke evacuation tubings, smoke-evac fusion products (shrouds), and accessories. The smoke evacuating systems segment dominated the market and accounted for a share of 39.6% in 2022. The smoke evacuation system detects smoke and activates fans for channeling the smoke away from occupied areas in the facility. This drives segment growth.

The smoke evacuating systems segment is further segmented into stationary systems and portable systems.The smoke evacuation filters segment is expected to hold the second-largest revenue share owing to their applications in cauetrizing vessels and vaporizing blood, tissues, and fluid created as smoke, a byproduct of laser surgeries and electrosurgeries. The segment is further classified into ULPA filters, charcoal filters, in-line filters, and pre-filters. The ULPA is highly effective and can filter nearly 100% and up to 120 nanometers in size, which is expected to boost segment growth.

End-use Insights

In terms of end-use, the market is bifurcated into hospitals, dental clinics, Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs), veterinary healthcare providers, and cosmetic surgery centers. The hospitals segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 42.7% in 2022. The segment is estimated to dominate the market throughout the forecast period owing to a high number of surgeries being performed, such as heart and orthopedic surgeries. According to Occupational Health and Safety Administration, approximately 500,000 workers are exposed to laser or electrosurgical smoke each year.

To prevent this, many hospitals are deploying smoke evacuation devices. On the other hand, the cosmetic surgery centers segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR from 2023 to 2030 owing to a rise in the number of cosmetic laser surgeries, which produce smoke. Furthermore, increasing preference for non-surgical cosmetic procedures, high demand for medical aesthetic lasers, and rising trend of medical tourism are fueling the segment growth.

Application Insights

On the basis of applications, the market is segmented into laparoscopic surgeries, orthopedic, medical aesthetic surgeries, and others. The laparoscopic surgeries segment held the maximum revenue share of 36.9% in 2022. The rising number of laparoscopic surgeries performed is anticipated to fuel the segment’s growth. According to an article published in AHA Journals, more than 2 million laparoscopic surgeries are performed every year in the U.S.

The medical aesthetic surgeries segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the increasing volume of aesthetic surgeries. The rising number of women undergoing cosmetic surgeries and increasing awareness about aesthetic procedures are favoring the market growth. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2020, nearly USD 16.7 billion was spent on cosmetic procedures in the U.S.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the global market in 2022 and accounted for the maximum share of 39.4% of the overall revenue. This high growth can be attributed to the high number of aesthetic surgeries being performed, such as laser liposuction, wherein laser treatment is used, which causes smoke plumes during surgery. Europe held the second-largest share owing to the presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure and the availability of advanced products & skilled professionals.

Smoke Evacuation System Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

The AsiaPacific region is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR owing to high investments in R&D and consistent efforts being taken by global players for commercializing their products at lower prices. The market in Latin America is expected to grow owing to the increasing reforms in the healthcare industry in this region.Moreover, healthcare organizations are also undertaking initiatives to improve healthcare facilities in MEA countries, which fuels market growth in the region.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The market is highly competitive with the presence of both international and local players. Key manufacturers are undertaking various strategies, such as acquisitions, strategic collaborations, and new product launches, to withstand the competition.
