A suction catheter is a medical device used to extract bodily secretions, such as mucus or saliva from the upper airway. A suction catheter connects to a suction machine or collection canister. Suction catheters are flexible, long tubes used to remove respiratory secretions from the airway. The purpose of suctioning is to keep the airway clear of secretions and to prevent plugging. One end of the suction catheter is connected to a collection container (suction canister) and a device that generates suction. The open end is advanced through the airway (endotracheal or tracheostomy tube) to remove secretions.
According to Gen Consulting Company, the global suction catheter market will increase at a CAGR of 5.72 percent during the period of 2017 to 2022, to attain an anticipated value of USD 650.55 million by the end of the forecast period. Based on type, the market for suction catheter is segmented into open suction catheter and closed suction system. The demand for open suction catheter enjoys a majority share in 2017 and is anticipated to develop at a 5.41% CAGR from 2017 to 2022.
The increasing need for prevention of VAP are the key factors propelling the growth of this market. The replacement of open suction catheter with closed one has also boosted the demand, thus propelling growth of the global suction catheter market. Furthermore, with opportunities ripe across countries in Asia Pacific, Africa, and Latin America the future of the global suction catheter market seems quite promising. Asia-Pacific is one of the key market that accounted for around 45% in terms of volume of the total global demand in 2016.
