“The market for manual resuscitators is expected to grow slowly, with increases in unit sales just managing to offset relatively rapid price erosion.”
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) March 13, 2015
According to a new report published by iData Research (http://www.idataresearch.com), due to the expensive nature of maintaining critical-care transport ventilators and the need for consistent ventilation in an emergency situation, especially when dealing with infants, growth in the resuscitation and transport ventilation equipment market will be driven by the increasing popularity of lower-end automatic resuscitators.
“The market for manual resuscitators is expected to grow slowly, with increases in unit sales just managing to offset relatively rapid price erosion,” explains Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData. “In contrast, the market for non-critical transport ventilators, particularly among the lower-end automatic devices, will see growth at relatively high rates.”
This need for a higher standard of consistent ventilation to achieve adequate pressure, volume and pump rate during an emergency setting has become crucial in the field. This trend is resulting in increased sales of lower-end automatic ventilators in the automatic resuscitator and hybrid ventilator categories.
Other key findings from the iData Research report entitled U.S. Market for Resuscitators and Transport Ventilators:
Technological Innovation in Ventilation
The standard bag-valve-mask system for ventilation has remained relatively unchanged. However, there are growing numbers of higher-end alternatives being introduced into the market, with features like pressure-relief valves, enhanced heat-resistant materials and indicators to help the technician with ventilation timing. These devices sell at a premium and therefore will partially offset bag-valve-mask price erosion.
When ventilating infants, it is extremely important that airway pressures are kept within a limited range. Therefore, healthcare providers are increasingly turning to automatic systems for infant resuscitation in order to minimize complications.
Care Fusion was the leading competitor in the market for resuscitation and transport ventilation devices, with the vast majority of the market share in the critical-care transport ventilators market segment. Additionally in the U.S., CareFusion has been contracted to supply several state-level emergency and disaster preparedness organizations.
Other notable competitors in the resuscitation and transport ventilation market in 2014 were AMBU, Smiths Medical, Allied Healthcare Products, and Impact Instrumentation.
