Sales Analysis of Market from 2015 to 2022 Vs Market Outlook for 2023 to 2033

The global market recorded a historic CAGR of 6.4% in the last 7 years from 2015 to 2022.

For many surgical procedures to address respiratory and GI-tract diseases, the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) has suggested endoscopic technique as a first-line therapy option. Due to the increased prevalence of respiratory disorders and its widespread usage in anaesthesia procedures with few complications and high success rates, endotracheal intubation is the preferred type of procedure among all other intubation procedures in the global intubation market.

  • For instance, over 3.0 million people die from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) each year, accounting for an estimated 6% of all deaths worldwide, and more than 262 million individuals globally suffer from asthma, mostly prevalent among children. Over 90% of COPD related deaths in people under the age of 70 occur in low- and middle-income countries.

The rising prevalence of respiratory disorders and breathing issues will drive up the demand for intubation procedures, leading to market expansion over the forecast period.

Due to the growing prevalence of respiratory disorders and the rising use of anesthetics as a result of increasing surgical procedures, the market is expected to expand positively as a result of the rising demand for improved equipment. The market is anticipated to develop as a result of the rising demand for both prolonged treatments associated with lung disorders in both children and adults, as well as emergency care for long-term respiratory illnesses.

The rising cases of interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) worldwide is expected to be a key factor in the growth of the global market throughout the projected period, as the increasing number of patients suffering from this disease will demand intubation procedures for the treatment.

  • The prevalence of ILDs (interstitial lung diseases) is on the rise all across the globe, according to an article published in the journal of Frontiers in Medicine, 2021, the incidence of ILD varied from 1 to 31.5 per 100,000 person-years and the prevalence varied from 6.3 to 71 per 100,000 individuals. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and sarcoidosis were the most common ILDs in North America and Europe, while Asia, particularly India (10.7-47.3%) and Pakistan (12.6%), had a greater relative prevalence of hypersensitivity pneumonitis.

The global market is likely to show high growth over the coming years at a CAGR of 6.7% and reach a global market size of US$ 2.55 Billion by 2033.

How Can the Global Market Grow?

Industry Acquisition and Development of Advanced Techniques for Management of Intubation Procedures

To increase the sales and market presence, top suppliers and manufacturers in the intubation industry are concentrating on a number of partnerships and external cooperation strategies. To improve their market position and expansion capabilities in the global scenario. These industry-led agreements are anticipated to bring the global intubation market technologically advanced and novel intubation products with better effects. Secondly, marketing and exclusive distribution agreements are promoting product availability and market awareness particularly in the emerging markets, leading to better product uptake.

  • For instance, Salter Labs, a company specializes in respiratory care devices, paid an undisclosed sum to buy three medical device companies, Innomed Technologies, IntuBrite, and parker Medical in October 2017. Two acquired companies, IntuBrite and Parker Medical, developed and produced intubation tubes specifically for tracheal and laryngoscopy surgical procedures.

Leading players are heavily investing in research and development activities in the global intubation market, which has resulted in significant technical breakthroughs. The global market is increasingly being driven by these advanced technology breakthroughs and improved product innovation. Increased use of intubation medical devices, such as endotracheal, nasogastric, other intubation products, in the intubation market is being attributed to their proven clinical efficacy, safety, and reduced rate of post-operative complications.

  • For instance, Medtronic Plc. unveiled new technological advancements in the area of anaesthetic intubation procedures in December 2019. The company presented novel video laryngoscopy for routine use in tracheal intubation for patients undergoing general anaesthesia at the World Airway Management Meeting (WAMM) 2019. With the help of this technology, challenging intubation procedures were made safe and efficient.

Can the Market Growth Be Affected in Any Way?

Lack of Awareness Regarding Respiratory Diseases and Scarcity of Skilled Professionals to Limit the Market Growth

Procedures for airway management require experienced anaesthesiologists and skilled professionals. In emergency situations, improper diagnosis and treatment of serious injuries can result in abnormalities, dysfunction of the affected area, or even death. The Lack of skilled medical professionals such as anesthesiologists are a prominent concerns and are capable of limiting the market growth.

The adoption rate of expensive airway management technology is very low in developing nation due to several factors like as lack of awareness of respiratory diseases which results in undiagnosed diseases and consequently the adequate treatment is not received. Also, the e ability and effectiveness of healthcare facilities to deliver prompt surgical and emergency care has been severely damaged by the shortage of intubation devices, which restrains market expansion.

Country-wise Insights

Why is the United States Market Booming?

“Growing Prevalence of Asthma”

The United States accounted for around 96.6% market share in the North America market in 2022.

The growing prevalence of respiratory disorders such as asthma all across the nation is expected to create lucrative demands for the intubation market throughout the forecast period.

  • Asthma affects more than 25 million individuals in the United States This is roughly 1 in every 13 persons, as per the estimates by AAFA (asthma and allergy foundation of America). Asthma affects over 20 million American individuals aged 18 and over. It is the most prevalent chronic disease in children. Around 5.1 million children under the age of 18 suffer from asthma.
  • Male children are more likely than female children to have asthma. Around 8.4% of male children and 5.5% of female children have asthma in the U.S.

Will the United Kingdom Be a Lucrative Market for Intubation?

“Increasing Number of COPD, Asthma Patients”

The United Kingdom market held around 30.8% market share of the Europe market in 2022.

The British Lung Foundation estimates that one in five individuals in the United Kingdom has ever experienced the onset of asthma, COPD, or another chronic respiratory disease. Currently, half of these affected patients are undergoing treatment for lung disease. Every week, over 10,000 people in the United Kingdom receive a new lung disease diagnosis. In the United Kingdom, lung disorders account for more than 6 million inpatient bed-days and 700,000 hospital admissions annually.

Thus, the increasing number of patients suffering from lung disorders will offer great potential to the market to further prosper in the United Kingdom.

How is Japan Emerging as a Prominent Market?

“Increasing Utilization of Automated Hematology Instruments”

Japan held a market share of about 53.2% of the East Asia market in 2022.
