Overview of the global anesthesia breathing circuits market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global anesthesia breathing circuits market will grow moderately during the next four years and will post a CAGR of more than 2% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increased number of chronic respiratory diseases as one of the primary factors for the growth of the anesthetic breathing circuits market. The recent years have seen an increase in the prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, obstructive sleep apnea, and pulmonary embolism. Factors such as the increased consumption of alcohol, unhealthy food habits, and environmental pollution are identified to be the major reasons for the prevalence of these diseases. In 2014, the World Health Organization reported that more than three million people die each year worldwide due to COPD. Surgical procedures greatly help in managing these chronic respiratory diseases and the use of anesthesia circuits by physicians to perform surgical procedures, will further augment the growth prospects for this market over the next four years

The adoption of latex-free products will help minimize the risk of allergic reactions and microbial contamination within the clinical setting can be prevented by the usage of anti-microbial systems, which also help reduce the risk of hospital acquired infections (HAI). This will result in improving patient outcomes and in turn, increase the number of physicians adopting these breathing circuits in the next few years.

Overview of the anesthesia vaporizers market

Extensive research carried out by the market research analysts at Technavio has shown that the global anesthesia vaporizers market will witness impressive growth and post a CAGR of more than 6% over the forecast period. Several companies are entering into partnerships with hospitals and healthcare departments of various governments, which is expected to increase the sales of anesthesia vaporizers significantly. Through such partnerships, companies also train professionals to improve their skills. Moreover, long-term partnerships with hospitals help Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies to grow more as they receive complete support from the governments, which, in turn, will drive this market’s growth in the coming years.

One of the recent trends spurring the growth prospects of this market is the presence of anesthesia vaporizers servicing companies. After about two to three years of service, most anesthesia vaporizers have to be calibrated to ensure that the vaporizer is delivering the required concentration of the anesthetic agent. If servicing of anesthesia vaporizers is not done on a timely basis, it can result in leaking of the anesthetic agent, leading to a potential health hazard. There are a few companies in the market that offer servicing of vaporizers in hospitals, clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global anesthesia vaporizers market is characterized by the presence of well-established global and local players. The competition is likely to intensify with advances in technology and the upgradation of product offerings. The presence of anesthesia vaporizer

Overview of the global anterior cervical fixation devices market

Spinal disorders such as spondylolisthesis, prolapsed intervertebral disc, and spinal stenosis is on the rise worldwide. This rise in cases of spinal disorders will increase the volume of spinal fusion surgeries. Rise in fusion rates have resulted in the high adoption of an anterior cervical plate to the anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion surgery is mainly performed to remove degenerative or herniated disc in the neck. Minimally invasive (MI) spinal surgeries are the recent developments in the area of spine treatment. With the rising volume of these surgeries during the forecast period, the anterior cervical fixation devices market will also witness huge growth. Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global anterior cervical fixation devices market to grow at a sluggish CAGR of around 2% by 2020.

The spine fixation systems are rapidly growing where the vendors are focusing on new technologies and materials to advance the surgeries and implantation of the bone defects. Such technological developments have encouraged the use of materials that are compatible with the patient's physical strength, biocompatibility, and durability of the implant. The cervical fixation systems are selected on parameters such as mechanical, thermal or electrical conductivity, biocompatibility, water absorption, diffusion, and biostability of the patients. Additionally, the advancements in genetic engineering and orthopedic medicine have allowed the replacement of traditional orthopedic biomaterials in spine surgeries.
