Laryngoscopy is the medical examination of the larynx, a part of the throat. It gives a view of the vocal folds and glottis. There are two types of laryngoscopy: direct laryngoscopy and indirect laryngoscopy. Direct laryngoscopy is performed by insertion of the laryngoscope at the back of the throat which helps to examine the throat and collect the sample for biopsy. Indirect laryngoscopy involves visualization of vocal cords, upper tracheal rings, larynx, and vocal cords. A laryngoscope helps to insert tubes such as endotracheal tube, gastric tube, or TOE probe. It is comprised of components such as base of blade, hook of blade, curved or straight blade, flange tip, handle tip containing electrical connection, a connection for hook, green line, and handle containing batteries. The laryngoscope can be inserted through the intraoral or intranasal route.
Laryngoscope helps to detect voice problems, throat & ear pain, and obstructive masses in the airway. Rising demand for noninvasive surgeries, growing awareness among healthcare professionals about advantages of video laryngoscopes, and increasing geriatric population globally are driving the global laryngoscopes market. However, soft tissue injury caused by laryngoscope, chipping of teeth, and laryngospasm are factors restraining market growth.
The global laryngoscopes market can be segmented based on product type, end user, and region. Based on product type, the market can be segmented into standard laryngoscopes, fiberoptic laryngoscopes, and video laryngoscope. Standard laryngoscope is also referred to as conventional laryngoscope. The only difference between standard and fiberoptic laryngoscope is the position of the light bulb. In standard laryngoscope, the light bulb is located in the blade whereas in fiberoptic laryngoscope the bulb is positioned within the handle which transmits the light via an optic bundle. The fiberoptic laryngoscopes market is further divided into flexible fiberoptic laryngoscope and rigid fiberoptic laryngoscope. Based on the route of insertion, the flexible laryngoscopes market is further classified into fiberoptic bronchoscope and fiberoptic rhinoscope. Repeated failure in getting the exact view of the larynx created the need for the development of video laryngoscopes. The market for video laryngoscope is classified into integrated channel laryngoscopes, video stylets, and rigid blade laryngoscopes. Rigid video laryngoscopes are dominating the market. Integrated channel laryngoscopes are of two types: airway and blade laryngoscopes. The rigid blade laryngoscopes are segmented into standard blade and angled blade laryngoscopes. Advancements in technologies has given birth to robot- assisted video laryngoscopy. Demand for robot-assisted video laryngoscopes is expected to grow during the forecast period. Based on end user, the global laryngoscopes market can be classified into diagnostic laboratories, hospitals, and ENT clinics. Among these, ENT clinics and hospitals are expected to contribute highest share in the market. The current market trend is the development of disposable blade laryngoscopes to avoid cross contamination issues.
On a regional basis, the global laryngoscopes market is segmented into North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. Among these, North America is leading with significant share in the global laryngoscope market. This is attributed to rising geriatric population with ENT disorders, presence of well-established healthcare organizations, and government initiatives for the use of video laryngoscopes in surgeries. Europe is the second largest contributor to the global laryngoscope market due to rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries in this region. The market in Asia Pacific and Latin America is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period due to continuously expanding economies, rising healthcare awareness, and growing healthcare expenditure in these regions.
Key players operating in the global laryngoscopes market are KARL STORZ GmbH & Co., Flexicare Medical, NOVAMED USA, Penlon Limited, Ambu A/S, Rudolf Riester GmbH, Medtronic plc., Clarus Medical LLC, BOMImed, Propper Manufacturing Co.
