Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Armstrong Medical, BLS Systems, Flexicare, Galemed, HSINER, Kindwell Medical, KOO Industries, Nuova, and O-Two Medical Technologies.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend that will boost market growth is the rising demand for disposable devices. Medical personnel worldwide are opting for disposable anesthesia face masks over traditional reusable masks. Reusable electrodes present risks of cross contamination, resulting in hospital-acquired infections or nosocomial infections. The CDC estimated that about 1.7 million people in the US have these infections every year, of which about 99,000 individuals die.
The use of disposable masks can lower the risks of cross contamination. These masks also have low maintenance costs and help reduce the duration of the sterilization process. In addition, the materials and components of disposable masks are of low cost compared to reusable masks.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the rise in the number of surgeries. Medical facilities perform various surgeries in the areas of orthopedics, trauma, ophthalmology, endoscopy, laparoscopy, and cosmetics. These surgeries help treat disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, urological disorders, spinal abnormalities, diabetes, brain tumors, and orthopedic deformities. Medical facilities perform most of these surgeries in an outpatient setting, as it costs 37% less compared to an in-patient setting.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the presence of alternatives such as laryngeal masks and endotracheal tubes.
