Major Segments Covered in the Anesthesiology Market Report Suite

The market for sleep therapy devices, which includes both positive airway pressure equipment and the patient interfaces used in conjunction with these devices, is the largest market covered in this report. The widespread use of these devices is due largely to an increasing awareness of sleep apnea and the risks of leaving the condition untreated. The second largest market is the anesthesia disposables market, within which there has been notable alterations in the competitive structure in Europe. The next largest market is for ventilators, which remains large in value despite the decline in sales that resulted from over-purchasing during the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic. Most segments within the anesthesia and respiratory markets are showing relative stability. The market is mature, and is driven by the aging European population, combined with the increasing awareness of sleep apnea and COPD. Price pressure from governments and tendering periods are causing a decline in the ASP that the growth in unit sales cannot overcome, yielding market wide stability, or market contraction in some cases.

The full report suite on the European market for anesthesia, respiratory and sleep management includes anesthesia disposables, anesthesia delivery, nebulizers, oxygen therapy devices, respiratory disposables, therapeutic obstructive sleep apnea devices, sleep diagnostic devices and ventilators.

While this report suite contains all Europe anesthesia device data, each of the markets are also available as standalone MedCore reports. This allows you to get access to only the anesthesia market research that you need. You can view all these included reports and segmentation here:

Anesthesiology Market Trends

In 2015, oxygen therapy devices and respiratory disposables represented the fastest growing segments in the European anesthesia, respiratory and sleep management device market. The oxygen therapy market is dominated by several large gas companies that operate through compressed oxygen delivery, whereby users rely on scheduled oxygen delivery to satisfy their compressed oxygen needs. However, in recent years, alternative devices that allow patients to generate their own compressed oxygen at home have begun to play a significant role in the market. Other growing segments include the markets for anesthesia delivery units, ventilators and sleep diagnostic devices. The primary driver of sleep diagnostic device sales is the growing awareness among the general population of both the symptoms of sleep apnea and the potential dangers associated with leaving the condition untreated. The market for sleep diagnostic devices experienced slight decline between 2014 and 2015, and is expected to  remain fairly stable over the forecasted period.

This report includes an analysis of other factors and trends that have positively and negatively impacted the market.
