Pulse Oximeters: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Pulse oximetry, a part of the respiratory care devices market, is indispensable in modern clinical armamentarium. Pulse oximeters measure oxygen saturation levels of arterial hemoglobin and enable physicians in early detection of patient distress. The device improves patient’s safety margins by providing vital information regarding blood oxygen levels, displaying SpO2, pulse rate, signal strength and pulse amplitude index. Increasing awareness, enhancement in healthcare worker efficiency through the adoption of improved and reliable detection algorithms, and high prevalence of diseases that require monitoring are driving growth in the market. Future growth in the market will be driven by advancements in technology and expansion in clinical applications such as in surgery, anesthesia, critical care, transport, childbirth, neonatal, and pediatric care. Growth in the alternate care market, increasing use in general care, and improvements in motion tolerant technology are expected to drive growth in the market. Strong potential also exists due to the lower penetration of pulse oximeters in hospitals in developing countries, where pulse oximetry is seen as a luxury, rather than a necessity. Expanding global population and rising proportion of the elderly also contribute to the increased demand for pulse oximeters.

Pulse oximeters are undergoing a sea change as they now incorporate improved flexibility and new, customized capabilities. Further, increasing demand for small size and portable pulse oximeters is encouraging the popularity of wireless technology. As customers prefer wireless, easy to carry, handheld pulse oximeters, companies such as Masimo and Zensorium are spearheading the launch of iPhone supported oximeters such as iSpO2 and Tinke.

As stated by the new market research report on Pulse Oximeters, the United States represents the largest market, while Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market worldwide, with a CAGR of 10.4% over the analysis period. Key factors driving growth in the region include rapid economic and social development, increased healthcare awareness, rising prevalence of chronic diseases, growing elderly population, and government investments on healthcare infrastructure development, among others. Product-wise, sensors continue to sustain its leadership position, primarily gaining from multiyear sensor contracts.
