Market Highlights

Respiratory care devices are used for treating, controlling, evaluating, managing, and diagnosing patients with an anomaly in the cardiopulmonary system. The respiratory disease is any of the diseases and disorders of the airways and the lungs that affect human breathing. Diseases of the respiratory system may disturb any of the structures and organs that have to do with breathing, which includes nasal cavities, the throat, the larynx, the trachea, the tissues of the lungs, and the respiratory muscles of the chest cage.

The growing respiratory diseases are largely due to increasing patient population suffering from chronic diseases, which include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, pneumonia, and asthma. The initial detection of these diseases aids in providing better treatments. Thus, the demand for respiratory care devices market share is increasing greatly in the global market. Additionally, the growing elderly population vulnerable to respiratory problems would boost the demand for the respiratory care devices market.

The lack of awareness about respiratory problems, intense competition, and the cost associated with the device and the respiratory surgery hamper the growth of the market.


The global respiratory care devices market has been segmented on the basis of therapeutic devices, monitoring devices, diagnostic devices, accessories and consumables, application, and end-users. On the basis of therapeutic devices, the market has been classified as pap devices, masks, ventilators, nebulizers, humidifiers, oxygen concentrators, inhalers, reusable resuscitators, nitric oxide delivery units, and oxygen hoods. On the basis of monitoring devices, the market has been classified as pulse oximeters, pulse oximeter sensors, pulse oximeter equipment, capnographs, and gas analyzers. On the basis of diagnostic devices, the market has been classified as spirometers, polysomnography (PSG) devices, peak flow meters, and other diagnostic devices. On the basis of accessories and consumables, the market has been classified as disposable masks, disposable resuscitators, tracheostomy tubes, nasal cannulas, and other consumables and accessories. On the basis of application, the market has been classified as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), sleep apnea, asthma, infectious diseases, and other diseases.
