Key Players

Major players operating in the global epidural anesthesia disposable devices market include B. Braun Melsungen AG, Becton, Dickinson and Company, Teleflex Incorporated, Smiths Medical, Sarstedt, Inc., Epimed, Egemen International, SFM Medical Devices, VOGT Medical, Vygon, and Flat Medical.

Epidural anesthesia, also called as regional anesthesia blocks pain in a particular area of the body by blocking nerve impulses into the epidural space around the spinal cord. This aids in reducing sensation of lower part of the body. Epidural anesthesia is the most common method to reduce pain during normal or C-section delivery. Epidural anesthesia is a disposable device used in epidural analgesia or combined spinal-epidural anesthesia to produce regional anesthesia in the sub-arachnoid space with the help of fine needle.

Market Dynamics

Increasing incidence of orthopedic surgeries, vascular surgeries, and others are expected to propel growth of epidural anesthesia disposable devices market during the forecast period. Orthopedic surgeries include surgical procedures for pelvic fractures and hip and knee surgeries, and vascular surgeries include revascularization procedures and amputation of lower extremity. For instance, according to the National Vascular Registry, 2018 around 9,293 major lower limb amputation were performed from 2015 to 2017, of which around 4,398 and 4,895 surgeries were above knee and below knee amputations, respectively, across the U.K.

Increasing demand for epidural anesthesia disposable devices for patients undergoing lumbar decompression surgery and increasing usage of epidural anesthesia during labor are expected to boost growth of the global epidural anesthesia disposable devices market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the World Health Organization reports published in 2018, the percentage of deliveries with labor analgesia in countries such as Singapore and South Korea were around 60% and 40%, respectively during 2016-2017.

Furthermore, rising adoption of inorganic growth strategies such as acquisitions and collaborations by the market players are expected to drive growth of the global epidural anesthesia disposable devices market over the forecast period.
