Alarming Spike in Prevalence of Respiratory Diseases Translates into High Demand

The demand for mechanical ventilators and other medical equipment has been foreseen to a see an increase on the back of the worrying rise of the incidence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory diseases. The commonness of such diseases could be a result of poor air quality, especially in countries that mainly rely on pollution-intensive industries. Chronic respiratory diseases account for over five million deaths annually, reports WHO. The sales of mechanical ventilators have been catalyzed in the recent years due to the increasing demand in trauma centers and hospitals. This could also be because of the rising prevalence of respiratory diseases.

Shrinking Profit Margins of Manufacturers Deters Growth

As foretold by TMR analysts, the international mechanical ventilators market could face a slack in its growth owing to injuries caused due to the prolonged usage of medical devices. Small healthcare organizations facing budgetary constraints could be another reason for the slow growth of the market. Intensive competitive rivalry and decreasing profit margins of players have also been prophesied to threaten the rise in the demand for mechanical ventilators.

However, players could be dependent on the aggressive technological development of mechanical ventilators on the part of their portability and design innovation. The transfer of long-term ventilated patients to home care as part of the common practice of cost deviation has been projected to create handsome growth opportunities in the international mechanical ventilators market.
