Anesthesia Machines Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Anesthesia is a practice of controlling the pain or other sensation during the time of surgery and other procedures with or without the loss of consciousness. It also helps in controlling the breathing, blood flow, blood pressure, and heart rate and rhythm.  There are four different types of anesthesia that includes local, general, regional and dissociative. Anesthesia machines are used by the professionals to support the administration of anesthesia. These machines deliver precisely known but variable gas mixtures, which are then delivered to the breathing systems. These gases are administered with the help of oxygen mask. Patients are administered a mixture of oxygen, nitrous oxide and other gases that are regulated by anesthetic machines. Over the years, anesthesia machines have evolved from a simple pneumatic device to a complex array of electrical, mechanical and computer controlled systems for patient safety and user convenience.

The anesthetic machine comprises three pressure systems:

  • A high pressure system that collects gases at cylinder pressure
  • An intermediate pressure system that delivers gases to flow meters.
  • A low pressure system that carries gases from the flow meters to the machine outlet

The advanced anesthetic machines comprise of better features compared to conventional machines in terms of proper ventilation techniques, accurate monitoring features, inhaled agent delivery, low flow and closed loop anesthesia.

Latest machines launched in 2015 and 2016, in the global anesthesia machines market, such as the Venor Xenon workstation (Chirana Medical), Felix Dual (Air Liquide Medical system) and Tangens 2C (EKU Electronics), have the advanced features to recycle and reuse xenon, making it cost effective and helping professionals to use xenon based anesthesia simultaneously with conventional nitrous oxide based anesthesia.

Anesthesia machines market taxonomy:

On the basis of technology, the anesthesia machines market is classified into:

  • Intermittent
  • Continuous

The continuous type anesthetic machines are majorly used in the market as they allow gas flow during inspiration and expiration.

On the basis of product type, the anesthesia machines market is classified into:

  • Portable Anesthesia Machines
  • Stand Alone Anesthesia Machines

On the basis of end user, the market is classified into:

  • Hospitals
  • Clinic
  • Ambulatory Surgical Centers

Geriatric population is highly susceptible to diseases and thus, account for a large proportion of the global patient population. According to United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division,  the global population aged 60 & above increased by 68% in urban areas and by 25% in the rural areas between 2000 and 2015. This rise in geriatric population scenario is shaping favorably for sustained growth of anesthesia machines market over the following decade. Furthermore, the rise in surgical procedures and increasing accident and trauma cases serve as the driving factor for the growth of the market. According to World Health Organization, around 266.2 to 359.5 million surgeries were performed in 2012, which represents a 38% increase over the previous 8 years.

The continuous improvements in healthcare sector and adoption of minimal invasive surgeries are favoring the growth of anesthesia machines market.  By geography, North America holds the major share due to advanced healthcare infrastructure and is followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively. According to a study published in NCBI in 2014, there has been a significant increase of 31.3% in minimal invasive surgical procedures from 2007 to 2012.  Among Asian countries, China and India are shown to experience a considerable market growth due to the large patient pool and increasing number of hospitals. As per Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT), over 90% of the total road accidents occurs in low and middle-income countries.

However, high cost of the anesthetic machines is one of the barrier to this market. Also, there exists a refurbished and used market for anesthetic machines which can serve as a restraining factor for the global anesthesia machines market.

Major players in the anesthesia machines market are Smiths medical, GE Healthcare, Spacelabs Healthcare, Covidien, Dragerwerk, Aeonmed, Heyer Medical, Oricare, Oricare, Supera Anesthesia Innovations, Dameca A·S, Carefusion Corporation and KGaA, Getinge Group.
