All segments are experiencing slow price erosion because of the competitive nature of the market and because price is often the only major differentiating factor between products. The manual resuscitator segment is expected to experience the strongest price erosion, while the average selling price for oxygen cannulas will decrease the slowest over the forecast period. Rising oil prices are also having a direct effect on the market, both because the products are made of petroleum-derived materials and because of the shipping costs associated with distributing the devices. Growth is expected to be relatively evenly split across all segments as increased demand grows consistently within the hospital and home care industry.
