Sputum aspirators are suction machines that are used for the removal of mucus from the body by creating partial vacuum. These devices are prescribed by the physicians to remove mucus form the respiratory airway. Sputum is a thick mucus that is coughed up from the lower respiratory airways while coughing. Sputum is also called as phelgem that is thick, slippery and sticky substance which is produced by the throat, lungs or bronchial passages. Phelgem which primarily constitutes sputum might also contain other substance such as dust, dead cells, blood cells and foreign particles like dust. Viral illness, infections of the upper airway passage or lungs, chronic lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) can trigger the production of sputum. Furthermore, smoking or tobacco usage, gastroesophageal reflux disease and nasal discharge are other factors that can stimulate the production of sputum. Under serious conditions sputum are always used for microbial culture tests for identification of respiratory infections and cytological investigations of the respiratory systems. A sample of sputum can reveal important information for screening and diagnosis of bacterial infections in the respiratory systems. The test is performed for the identification of symptoms such as fatigue, confusion, muscle aches, cough, difficulty in breathing, chills and fever. Further, if disease causing microorganism is found in the test then culture can be used for the prescription of proper treatment tuberculosis, bronchitis, lung abscess, infection in cystic fibrosis patients.
Increasing incidences of respiratory disease is a major factor that is expected to increase the market size for sputum aspirators. Respiratory disease has become one of the most common cause of deaths worldwide. It has been estimated by the physicians the cases for asthma and COPD are increasing on a large level. Asthma, a chronic disease characterized by recurrent attacks of breathlessness and COPD is a life threatening lung disease that interferes with normal breathing. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it has been estimated that currently, approximately 235 million people are diagnosed with asthma and about 64 million people are diagnosed with COPD. Hence, such an exponential rise in respiratory incidences would increase the market size for suction aspirators.
With the increase in prevalence of respiratory diseases owing to increase in aging population, smoking, rising incidences of common obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD), North America accounts for the largest share among all the economies followed by European countries. According to the American Lung Association in 2011 approximately 3,345 deaths were caused due to asthma. Likewise, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2012 COPD was the third leading cause of deaths in the U.S and approximately, 15 million Americans have been diagnosed with COPD. However, with an increase in the prevalence of respiratory disease due to increase in smoking rate, Asian countries are also anticipated to account for a significant share pertaining to suction aspirators market in the future. The emergence in this market is expected to show a substantial growth in the coming years owing to demographic changes, increase in the COPD cases and technological advancements which will influence the growth of this market. As per the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare in 2012 respiratory diseases were responsible for 13,258 deaths in Australia. In addition with the growing demand for long term treatment for managing the condition also act as a driver for the growth of this market.
