European Markets for Anesthesia, Respiratory and Sleep Apnea Devices 2011 – MedSuite


This report analyzes the European markets for anesthesia delivery units, anesthesia disposables, ventilators, nebulizers, respiratory disposables, therapeutic obstructive sleep apnea devices (sleep therapy devices) and sleep diagnostic devices. The sleep therapy device market is the largest of the markets covered in this report, largely owing to the increased awareness of sleep apnea, its risks and its co-morbidities. The second-largest market covered is the oxygen therapy device market, which is experiencing a major shift in ambulatory application technology, as well as a large and growing patient base stemming from an aging European population. Most segments within the anesthesia and respiratory markets are showing modest growth because of an increasing number of day and cosmetic surgeries, post-recession growth in hospital capital expansions, and a rising prevalence of respiratory disease.
