Factors such as technological advancements, rising occurrence of respiratory diseases, and the increasing awareness about using capnography equipment are primarily responsible for the growth of the market. The global capnography equipment market is expected to find growth opportunities due to the rising occurrence COPD and asthma in emerging economies. However, the availability of affordable substitutes such as pulse oximeter is projected to hamper the growth of the market.
Capnography examines the concentration and partial pressure of carbon dioxide in expiratory gases during the diagnosis of various respiratory diseases. In 2013, as per the World Health Organization (WHO), around 235 million people suffered from asthma globally. According to Nature Middle East, the global incidences of asthma will increase by 100 million by 2025. This strongly indicates that the rising occurrence of respiratory diseases will be the primary factor driving the global capnography equipment market.
Based on geography, the global capnography equipment market is divided into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World. In 2013, North America held a dominant share of 60% in the global capnography equipment market. In October 2010, the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) revised the anesthetic monitoring standards by instructing the use of capnography. This has helped North America to maintain its market dominance. The high occurrence of respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder and asthma are projected to benefit the North America market to maintain its dominance. The Europe capnography equipment market is predicted to be the fastest growing regional market owing to favorable government rules and the availability of capnography equipment at affordable rates.
