Intubation Market Trends

Development of Advanced Techniques for Management of Intubation Procedures: Intubation is a procedure used to place a flexible plastic tube into a patient’s trachea through the mouth or nose, to maintain an open airway. This helps prevent suffocation or serve as a channel to administer an anaesthetic, medication, or oxygen. High number of intubation procedures are projected to gain traction in the global intubation market. In 2010, there were an estimated 25 Mn intubations in the U. S., and more than 50 Mn globally, a huge volume of procedures in the intubation market.

Improved clinical effectiveness and safety of commercialized intubation products are being focused by leading industry players. Key companies are engaged in extensive technical advancements by putting high research & development funding in the global intubation market. This enhanced product innovation and exclusive technological advancements are becoming mainstream drivers of the global intubation market. Established clinical efficacy and safety with minimal post-operative complications are leading to higher adoption of intubation medical devices in the intubation market, such as endotracheal, nasogastric, nasotracheal, and other intubation products.

  • For instance, in December 2019, Medtronic Plc. announced new technology development in the field of anaesthesia intubation techniques. In the World Airway Management Meeting (WAMM) 2019, the company revealed innovative video laryngoscopy for routine application in tracheal intubation for patients undergoing general anesthesia. This technology enables difficult intubation procedures to be safe and effective.

As per a study in 2019, difficult intubation medical procedures contribute to approximately US $ 2 Bn additional costs in the U. S., and this is expected to create high demand for technologically-advanced products in the global intubation market. Advances in intubation techniques and rising trend of minimal-invasive surgical procedures are key factors behind the high adoption of intubation products.

Industry Acquisition, Collaborations, and Agreements by Leading Players to Accelerate Market Growth: Leading manufacturers and suppliers in the intubation market are focusing on several deals and external collaborative approaches to enhance their sales and market presence. Few leading companies are acquiring innovative intubation medical device developers and manufacturers to strengthen their intubation market positioning and expansion capabilities. These industry-led deals are expected to launch cutting-edge intubation products with technical advancements in the global intubation market. In addition, marketing and exclusive distribution partnerships are fuelling product awareness and availability in the market, resulting in higher adoption of products within the scientific community.

  • For instance, in October 2017, Salter Labs, a specialized company in respiratory care medical devices, acquired three innovative medical device companies - Innomed Technologies, Parker Medical, and IntuBrite, for undisclosed amounts. Parker Medical and IntuBrite, two acquired companies, were developers and manufacturers of intubation tubes especially for endotracheal and laryngoscopy medical procedures.

Endotracheal Intubation Products Gaining Traction, Owing to Significant Rise in Anaesthesia & Surgical Procedures: The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) has recommended endoscopic approach as a first-line treatment option for most surgical procedures for respiratory and GI-tract conditions. Endotracheal intubation is the preferred type of procedure in the global intubation market among all other intubation procedures, owing to rising cases of respiratory diseases and high use in anesthethesia procedures with minimum complications and high.

For instance, as per 2019 statistics, endotracheal intubation procedures are regularly used as a life-saving medical technique, and over 15 Mn endotracheal intubations are performed in an operating room in the U.S. annually. This, in addition to 650,000 non-operating hospital intubation procedures, containing 346,000 emergency department intubation procedures.
