Airway Management Devices Market Introduction & Overview
Airway management is a set of medical procedures performed to avoid and relieve airway obstruction. This ensures an open pathway for the exchange of gases between a patient's lungs and the outside environment. Airway management devices include a wide range of devices that have been developed to aid the management of a difficult airway. They incorporate a wide range of fiberoptic, video, optical, and mechanical technologies to allow doctors to obtain better views of the larynx and facilitate the passage of an endotracheal tube (ETT) into the trachea. These devices are useful for the management of difficult or failed airways and routine intubation.
The airway management devices market is driven by factors, such as the growing geriatric population and the rising prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases. Additionally, increasing government awareness to improving the emergency care infrastructure, coupled with the increasing utilization of advanced technologies in emergency care, is anticipated to further boost market growth. However, the harmful effects of certain devices on neonates & geriatric populations and the dearth of skilled professionals are among factors that are expected to hamper the airway management devices market to a certain extent.
The global airway management devices market can be segmented into product type, age group, end user, and region.
Airway Management Devices Market By Product Type
Based on product type, the market can be segmented into infraglottic airway management devices, supraglottic airway management devices, laryngoscopes, resuscitators, and others. The infraglottic airway management devices segment accounted for the largest share in 2019 owing to the increasing utilization of these devices in an emergency as well as elective situations.
Airway Management Devices Market By Age Group
Based on age group, the market can be segmented into adult and pediatric. The adult segment dominated the market owing to the rising geriatric populations globally and the high prevalence of chronic diseases in adult patients.
Airway Management Devices Market By End User
Based on the end user, the market can be segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and others. The hospitals segment is estimated to account for the largest market share globally. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the availability of the latest technologies in hospitals and the increasing number of surgeries carried out in hospitals.
Airway Management Devices Market By Region
Based on the region, the market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). North America dominated the airway management devices market followed by Europe. The large share of North America can be attributed to the availability of advanced airway management devices and the rising prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases among geriatric populations in this region.
Airway Management Devices Market Prominent Players
Some of the key players operating in the airway management devices market include Medtronic, Teleflex Incorporated, Smiths Group plc., Ambu A/S, KARL STORZ, Flexicare Medical Limited, Verathon, Inc., Intersurgical Ltd., Vyaire Medical, Inc., and VBM Medizintechnik GmbH, among others.
