Capnography Equipment Market By Equipment Type (Mainstream Capnographs, Sidestream Capnographs, Microstream Capnographs And Disposables), By End User (Hospitals, Ambulatory Centers, Others) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The global capnography equipment market is growing fruitfully, was valued at US$ 264.3 Mn in 2017 and expected to reach US$ 390.5 Mn by 2026. Worldwide increasing surgical procedures along with post-operative monitoring, the high prevalence of respiratory diseases, and utilization of advanced equipment for respiratory monitoring drive the overall market growth.

New technology advancement in the field of various applications such as cardiac care, trauma, and emergency care is growing significantly. New product launches in the point of care and portable equipment segment is driving the growth in the developed regions. In the product segment, mainstream equipment is expected to lead the market growth due to its higher accuracy and increase in adoption. Worldwide associations and organizations (WHO, Forum of International Respiratory Societies, European Resuscitation Council (ERC) and others) are now recommending to utilize capnography equipment during patient monitoring for anesthesia to improve higher patient safety. As indicated by WHO and Global Asthma Report, around 300 million suffer from asthma globally. Also, it has also been advocated by WHO to utilize the monitoring throughout certain medical procedures, such as endotracheal tube placement, hypoventilation, and esophageal intubation.

Moreover, the demand for portable equipment is gaining traction in the hospital settings. Moreover, rising incidences of trauma, asthma cases & emergency cases, increasing medical tourism for plastic/cosmetic surgery, easy affordability, demand for progressive diagnostic methodologies, and adoption of advanced equipment along with favorable reimbursement policies fuels the demand for capnography equipment market globally. However, the high cost of equipment, lack of skilled technicians, less awareness and affordability issues are accountable for restraining the growth of capnography equipment market globally.

Market Synopsis

Capnography Equipment Market

"Mainstream Capnography Product Segment is expected to Register Higher Growth by the End of 2026"

Adoption of mainstream capnography is in demand due to its higher accuracy and benefits, however, the sensors are expensive to replace. In various areas, microstream method for end-tidal CO2 (EtCO2) measurement is utilized. Major applications of capnography can be seen in the severity of asthma patients, monitoring head-injured patients, cardiac arrest and tube confirmation. Sidestream capnography is also being majorly utilized globally, holds maximum market share in the global market due to its ease of use with thin tubing sets, very less or no problems in sterilization, and support in the monitoring of non-incubated elements assisted with nasal adapters.

For instance, more than 360,000 respiratory failure cases are filed every year in the U.S, around 30% of deaths happen during hospitalization, as indicated by the American Thoracic Society. Preference for disposable consumables is high due to risk for hospital-acquired infections and other contamination risks via reusable consumables. Disposables segment is also generating a significant revenue share due to its regular requirement in evaluating and monitoring CO₂ levels.

"Increasing Population, New Product Launches and the Presence of Top Players Holds North America in Dominant Position"

In 2017, North America generates maximum revenue share in the global capnography equipment market attributed to the rising prevalence of respiratory disorders, asthma, increasing surgical procedures and increasing utilization of top equipment as a standard of care (critical/emergency medicine) for general anesthesia, and deep or moderate sedation. Others factors contributing to the overall growth of the market include, higher adoption in microstream capnography products (can be utilized for neonatal population and on patients after a surgery), high demand for effective CO2 monitoring, new product launch and increased applications in emergency care, point-of-care, military and veterinary segment globally. Also, few limitations in the applications of pulse oximetry may result in positive traction of the capnography equipment.

Major external factors contributing to the growth include growing awareness increasing hospitalizations, rising FDA approvals for new guidelines & products/services and the presence of top key manufacturers in the U.S. & Europe. Nevertheless, in low monetary nations such as China, India, South Africa, Brazil, and others, the availability of advanced equipment and services is limited. Lack of trained physicians, poor supply chain, less convenience of medical treatment and the high cost devices are restraining the development of the market.
