Stethoscope Market Dynamics

Drivers: Rising Prevalence Of Cardiovascular And Respiratory Diseases

The surge in cardiovascular and respiratory diseases is anticipated to significantly contribute to the expansion of the market. Heart disease, a leading cause of death globally, is a major concern. As per WHO’s 2019 data, heart disease is the primary cause of death in most countries, claiming approximately 17.9 million lives annually, with over 75% of these deaths occurring in low- and middle-income countries. Furthermore, a 2018 CDC report revealed that 30.3 million adults in the U.S. were diagnosed with heart disease. Heart diseases, including cerebrovascular disease, coronary heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, and others, can be easily detected through changes in the sounds produced by the heart. Therefore, heart auscultation, or listening to the heart sound, is the first step taken by physicians for early diagnosis of cardiac illness. These factors are projected to stimulate the growth of the stethoscope market. In addition, the escalating prevalence of various respiratory diseases such as asthma, acute bronchitis, emphysema, and cystic fibrosis is expected to drive the stethoscope market growth. According to WHO’s 2019 data, around 235 million people worldwide were living with asthma. The CDC also reported that teenagers, on average, suffer from the common cold six to ten times annually, and adults two to four times per year globally.

Increase In Geriatric Population

The rise in the elderly population is leading to a higher demand for stethoscopes for the primary diagnosis of various chronic health conditions. The CDC has identified that individuals over 65 years of age are more prone to severe health issues, such as heart disease, common asthma, cold & flu, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, and other medical conditions. This is attributed to the weakening of the immune system with age, which in turn increases an individual’s vulnerability to various disorders. According to a 2018 WHO report, the global population aged 60 years and older is projected to increase from 900 million in 2015 to 2 billion by 2050. Similarly, the World Ageing 2019 report stated that there were approximately 703 million people aged 65 years or over worldwide in 2019. This number is expected to double to 1.5 billion in 2050, indicating that by 2050, one in six people globally will be over the age of 65. This factor is anticipated to be a key driver of the stethoscope market. Furthermore, the growing elderly population in the Asia Pacific region, particularly in countries such as Japan, India, and China, is expected to propel market growth during the forecast period.

Restrains: High Cost Of Electronic/ Smart Stethoscopes

Over time, advancements and innovation in medical devices have enhanced their efficiency, accuracy, and effectiveness in healthcare systems. However, access to these advanced medical devices is often limited in health systems of low- and middle-income countries. Recently, stethoscopes equipped with new features and advanced technology have entered the market. However, the inclusion of these new features leads to an increase in the product’s cost due to the expensive materials used in the technology. This makes them less affordable for most medical professionals in less developed and developing countries such as India, China, Mexico, South Africa, Argentina, Somalia, Maldives, Libya, and Korea. For example, the 3M Littmann Classic III monitoring stethoscope is priced at approximately USD 151 to USD 200, while the cost of the 3M Littmann Electronic Stethoscope ranges around USD 400 to USD 700. This price difference is attributed to the specialized design and high-quality materials used to enhance sensitivity and sound quality. Similarly, the Thinklabs One Digital Stethoscope costs between USD 500 and USD 650. The manufacturing process of an electronic stethoscope takes longer than that of a manual stethoscope, adding to the operational cost. Therefore, the availability of such technologically advanced stethoscopes is quite low in these countries due to the high cost of products and poor economic growth. In addition, operating such upgraded devices requires specially trained clinicians. Consequently, the high cost of electronic stethoscopes may hinder their sales, especially in developing nations where the overall purchasing power of consumers is low.
