Non-invasive Ventilators Market: Unveiling the Progress Path

The history of non-invasive ventilation dates back to the 20th century. Non-invasive ventilation was first used for the treatment of patients with acute respiratory failure, in the 1940s. The long-term use of non-invasive ventilators began to spur towards ventilatory progress during the 1980s. This was attributed to the improved understanding of the sleep physiology and beneficial effects of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). However, it was not until 1987 that the world witnessed the development of so-called modern non-invasive ventilation. Over the past two decades, the use of non-invasive ventilators has witnessed substantial growth, as technology advances, and the field of healthcare progresses on a fast-paced trajectory.

Presently, a robust evidence base detailing the efficacy of non-invasive ventilation in aggravations of cardiogenic pulmonary edema, acute respiratory failure, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in immunocompromised patients, highlights its evolutionary path. Moreover, its contribution in other settings such as hypoxemic acute respiratory failure and the management of patients who disapprove the process of endotracheal intubation is increasing rapidly. The non-invasive ventilators market is expected to reach a valuation of ~ US$ 1.5 Bn in 2019, and is likely to grow at a CAGR of ~ 6% through the forecast period.

Impact of Undercurrents on the Non-invasive Ventilators Industry

According to WHO, chronic respiratory disease affects nearly one billion individuals, globally, making it one of the leading causes of death. This disease is prevalent in numerous forms, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic bronchitis, asthma, pulmonary hypertension, and occupational lung disease. COPD occurrence has been closely linked to the rising air pollution in rural areas, and the burden of the disease is likely to grow in urban areas on account of the increasing prevalence of tobacco smoking. The demand for therapeutic devices such as non-invasive ventilators is likely to rise due to an increase in the diagnostic rates of various respiratory diseases.

The healthcare industry has witnessed rapid transformation over the years. As healthcare is becoming decentralized, patient care has exhibited a paradigm shift towards homes. Consumers are placing reliance on homecare with the constant support of technologically-advanced wearables, which not only aid in medication administration but also monitor treatment progress. Decentralizing healthcare to local centers is likely to enhance efficiency and address resource scarcity.

Another aspect that is likely to shape the future of the non-invasive ventilators market is the trends of portability and miniaturization, remote patient monitoring, and connectivity. Portable variants could be of use for treating patients with conditions such as pneumonia or in the course of mass casualty events.

One of the most common reasons that could hamper the adoption of non-invasive ventilators is the lack of experience. A substantial number of physicians do not use the conventional mode of non-invasive ventilation support. Proper application of masks and minimized air leaks are among the most vital factors that aid in improving patient compliance and ensuring enhanced ventilation. A protocol-based use of non-invasive ventilators remains crucial, which has created the need for providing adequate training for operators.
