Market Set for Double Growth by 2030

Medical ventilators have long been central to treating patients in intensive care units (ICUs), providing breathing support for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In the wake of coronavirus pandemic, demand for these ventilators has seen a quantum leap, as the disease is characterized by mild to severe respiratory illness. Future Market Insights, in its new study, forecasts the medical ventilators market to grow two-fold over the next decade, as manufacturers race to ramp up production and meet an exponential increase in demand in 2020. However, a combination of supply chain disruptions and increased number of COVID-19 patients worldwide is widening the gap between demand and supply.

  • Invasive ventilators continue to influence growth strategies, while stakeholders are capitalizing on non-invasive ventilators, owing to extensive use in chronic respiratory failure, weaning, and for acute respiratory failure.
  • Hospitals remain prominent end user for medical ventilators. This is attributed to the availability of medical ventilators and skilled personnel for better clinical management of various diseases.

Key Factors Shaping the Medical Ventilators Market

Growing Preference for Ventilators among Long-term Oxygen Therapy Patients

Long-term oxygen therapy has been found to reduce, overall mortality, improve emotional status and cognitive function in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients. This therapy is now recommended by healthcare professionals for COPD patients by current treatment guidelines across the globe. Non-invasive mechanical ventilation has proven to reduce hypoventilation and help functional performance and is recently prescribed on a large percentage for patients with stable COPD in most European countries.

Non-invasive mechanical ventilation would provide physiological and clinical advantages to the long-term oxygen therapy patients and reduce hospital admissions and ICU length of stay. This is expected to provide significant push to the medical ventilators market growth.

Rise in Number of Coronavirus Cases

Thousands and millions of peoples are now dying due to coronavirus pandemic around the world. According to WHO, the number of deaths is estimated about 69,487 within the first three months of 2020. According to an estimation by the Imperial College of London, about 30% of coronavirus diseased patients now require mechanical ventilation. The intensive care units are now overcrowded due to the increasing coronavirus cases. Therefore, there is a huge requirement of many more ventilators to manage the corona pandemic all over the world, which is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for medical ventilators market players.

Launch of Technological Advanced Medical Ventilators

Development and launch of innovative products as per patients need is the major factor responsible for intense competition among key players in the global medical ventilators market. Several companies are focusing on launching advanced medical ventilators to increase their product sales and profit margins. For instance, In May, 2017, Draegerwerk AG & Co. KGaA launched a robust ventilator “Oxylog VE300” which is a sturdy life saver ventilator that can be used for emergency services

Production Capacity Expansion by Key Market Leaders

The ventilator industry is getting a burst of desperate orders from China, Italy, Germany and the US for the management of patients with severe respiratory illness, amid the coronavirus outbreak. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing to boost up their ventilator manufacturing capacity. For instance, companies such as Medtronic, Koninklijke Philips N.V., and Getinge AB are planning to expand their ventilator production by 40%-60% to supply ventilators in response to the urgent needs across the globe confronting COVID-19.

Revenue forecast, company share, competitive landscape, growth factors, and trends

Critical Care Ventilators Stay in Greater Demand

Critical care ventilators are witnessing higher demand and investments than transportable ventilators. As 8 in 10 units sold in 2019 were critical care ventilators, manufacturers are specifically focused on this category. With COVID-19 patients overwhelming ICUs, governments and public health organizations are lending a hand in ramping up the production of critical care ventilators. In a bid to support a sudden spike in demand immediately, leading players such as Phillips are adding new manufacturing lines, increasing the number of shifts of its employees, and hiring additional manufacturing workers.

North America at Epicenter of COVID-19 Pandemic and Massive Demand

Accounting for over 30% of the global market value, North America’s medical ventilators market remains at the forefront, propelled in part by the emergence of the U.S. as the worst-hit country by COVID-19. As the nation faces with daunting shortages of medical ventilators, many companies are teaming up with car manufacturers to produce hundreds and thousands more. For instance, General Motors team up Ventec Life Systems, a Washington-based ventilators company to scale up its production capacity using the former’s factories, to address the nation’s shortages

Influx of New Entrants and Low-cost Alternatives to Cause Significant Disruptions

In addition to COVID-19’s toll, the medical ventilators market is witnessing a robust increase in number of new market players, putting a pressure on leading stakeholders to differentiate their products while meeting the growing demand. As governments and health authorities are speeding testing, facilitating access to crucial medical products, and allowing manufacturers to make changes to existing products, various fast produced, low-cost medical ventilators are inundating the marketplace. While these measures help expand production to save numerous lives in COVID-19 pandemic, they are likely to represent potential threat for incumbents in the long-term outlook.

Critical care ventilators remain product of choice

Demand for transport ventilators picks pace

Invasive ventilators take the lead

Adoption of non-invasive ventilators increases rapidly

Hospitals emerge as top end user

Adoption in home care settings remains bullish

How Growth will Unfold

Hospitals account for more than half of the total adoption of medical ventilators. Increased pressure on hospitals to accommodate rapidly growing number of COVID-19 patients has been weighing heavily on the demand for medical ventilators. Moreover, companies are seeking help from non-health industries and universities in a wartime-like effort to add more ventilators to hospitals. Additionally, growing demand from home care services and long term care centers for patients with respiratory issues is likely to result in increased market share over the next decade.
