This market research report analyzes the key players in the global capnography market and includes major vendors like Masimo, Medtronic, Philips, Smith’s Medical, and Welch Allyn. A comprehensive study of this market is also presented by market worth, market insights, market forecast, segmentation by technology type (capnographs and disposables), by end user (hospitals, surgical centers, and others), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Global capnography market forecast

According to the capnography market analysis, the global capnography market will grow at an impressive CAGR of more than 16% by 2020. Pulse oximetry is a traditional method used to assess the respiratory function and measure the oxygen saturation of the blood. However, this technique can be misleading as it is a late detector of respiratory depression in a patient during the delivery of supplemental oxygen. Due to the limitations involved in the usage of pulse oximetry, the demand for capnography has increased among the end users as it can identify early signs of opioid-induced respiratory depression in patients receiving supplemental oxygen.

Based on the capnography market overview, the Americas dominated the global capnography market and accounted for more than 71% of the total market share. The increasing prevalence of respiratory disorders among the pediatrics is one of the key factors that has encouraged the adoption of capnography by physicians across the region. This region witnessed approximately two-thirds of the cases of respiratory failure in children during the first postnatal year. Furthermore, the market in the Americas is dominated by vendors with stronger operational base and financial strength. Some of the vendors in the Americas like Philips Healthcare have developed advanced capnographs such as the Alaris EtCO2 module to meet the consumer’s demand in this region.


Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global capnography market is highly fragmented due to the presence of many international and regional vendors. Vendors such as Philipps and Smith’s Medical are adopting organic growth strategies to improve their presence in the market. The vendors in the market are also competing against each other by introducing new products that feature better alarm functionality and storage and analysis of data. To gain maximum shares in the market, the vendors have developed capnography products that provide better analytics to improve the decision-making process and interdependent workflow.

Key vendors in the market are -

  • Masimo
  • Medtronic
  • Philips
  • Smith’s Medical
  • Welch Allyn

Other prominent vendors in the market are ATHENA GTX, Braun & Company, COMDEK, DIXTAL, Dragerwerk, Hologic, Hospira, MEDACX, MEDIANA, Medilogix, Mennen Medical, Mindray, Nihon Kohden, Oridion Systems, OSI Systems, Physio-Control, Spacelabs Healthcare, Triton Electronics, Viamed, Weinmann Gerate fur Medizin, and Zoll.


Segmentation by technology type and analysis of the capnography market

  • Capnographs
  • Disposables

According to this market study, the disposables segmented dominated the global capnography market and accounted for more than 53% of the total market share in 2015. Capnography disposables such as sampling lines, capnography masks, tubes, and disposable detectors are used in several situations, especially during emergencies. With the help of sampling lines, the users can immediately detect airway obstruction and other ventilation issues and receive feedbacks on the breathing and ventilator status of individuals in emergency care.


Segmentation by end user and analysis of the capnography market

  • Hospitals
  • Surgical centres

According to Technavio’s market analyst, the surgical centers segmented dominated the global capnography market and accounted for approximately 49% of the total market share in 2015. The number of capnography procedures is more in surgical centers as compared to hospitals. As a result, large-sized surgical centers collaborate with many hospitals to monitor EtCO2 during surgeries using advanced capnography techniques. The results are then transmitted to the hospital, which helps reduce medical expenses and minimize the duration of result delivery.
