Suction Tube Market size is poised to exhibit stable growth between 2023 and 2032, attributed to the growing demand for emergency surgical procedures worldwide.
Suction equipment, including suction tubes, is an integral part of medical emergency settings, sub-acute care units, and long-term care units across healthcare organizations as well as across home settings. Air suctioning is performed when a patient cannot effectively move secretions from the respiratory tract, which may eventually lead to airway obstruction. Alternately, suctioning is also required after several diagnostic purposes and surgical procedures such as tracheostomy.
The rising prevalence of heart diseases and respiratory ailments, such as COPD, asthma, and chest infections, is the leading factor driving the suction tube market. Heart disease is the top cause of death in the United States, accounting for around 697,000 fatalities every year. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2022). Since the availability of reliable, consistent suctioning is associated with better patient outcomes, healthcare organizations across the world are investing in these devices, thus, favoring the market dynamics.
Portable emergency suctioning machines are being deployed by healthcare establishments, in order to deliver critical care without compromising on quality. Due to the growing number of COVID-19 patient admissions, hospitals are witnessing immense pressure on their emergency medical equipment. The increasing installation of wall-mounted suction equipment in ICUs, coupled with the growing prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may spur product gains through 2032.
In terms of application, the nasal surgery segment is estimated to exhibit a robust progress growth rate through 2032. The rising prevalence of sinus infections caused by viruses or bacteria and unhealthy habits, such as smoking, are projected to increase demand for suction tubes for nasal surgeries. According to a study, sinusitis affects around 35 million persons in the United States each year.
The suction tube market share from the disposable suction tube segment is projected to increase owing to the infection risks during suctioning for acquiring patient specimens for clinical examination. These tools can assist doctors in identifying the source of infection and aid in secretion clearance, which can help avoid unfavorable results. Regular suctioning greatly increases comfort in ventilated patients since it is associated with improved outcomes and less exposure to pollutants and infections.
At Arab Health 2022, P3 Medical, the UK distributor for several manufacturers of medical devices, displayed their NeVap Aspire, a suction breathing tube device developed to enhance infection control in airway management and prevent the risks of ventilator-associated pneumonia.
As the number of premature births is witnessing a consistent uptick, the use of endotracheal tube (ETT) suction is required for maintaining the ability to breathe and clear secretions in intubated babies. The World Health Organization estimates that 15 million infants are born prematurely every year (before 37 completed weeks of gestation).
Additionally, the suction tube market revenue is increasing as pediatrics & neonatal suction equipment are being installed in clinics and hospitals due to the soaring occurrences of meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) among intubated neonates.
Medtronic, Poly Medicure Limited, Smiths Medical, and Cardinal Health are some leading suction tube manufacturers in the global suction tube market . The increasing number of regulatory approvals enables these enterprises to offer market-leading goods.
