Global Laryngeal Mask Market Size, Trends, and Analysis - Forecasts To 2026 By Type (Disposable, Reusable), By Patient (Children, Geriatric, Adult), By End-Use (Ambulatory Surgical Centers, Hospitals & Clinics), By Region (North America, Asia Pacific, CSA, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa); End-User Landscape, Company Market Share Analysis & Competitor Analysis
Laryngeal masks also referred to as laryngeal mask airways (LMAs) and laryngeal airway devices (LADs), are medical devices that enable the patient's airways to stay open in an unconscious state or after anesthesia is administered. The mask consists of an airway tube at one end with a connector and a cuff at the other end. To simplify the supply of oxygen or anesthesia gas at the period of surgery these masks are usually used by anesthetists. It is also extended to unconscious patients by emergency technicians. Laryngeal mask anesthesia is a supraglottic airway system that is used in anesthesia and emergencies. Restricted intermittent positive pressure ventilation is possible with this system.
The growth of the laryngeal mask is attributable to the rising number of operations and the need for disposable products. The penetration of the product is boosted by aspects such as the rising incidence of chronic diseases, the rising geriatric population, and technological advances. The growing demand for anesthesia laryngeal masks in developing countries is one of the key innovations and R&D in the field of surgical equipment is expected to generate new possibilities during the forecast timeframe.
Furthermore, the key benefits of the products including ventilation control during anesthesia, maintenance, induction & emergence are projected to fuel the growth of the market. Moreover, the positioning of these masks does not require muscle relaxants & laryngoscopy, such as succinylcholine, which in some patients is known to cause postoperative myalgia. The use of these masks often reduces the incidence of postoperative myalgia considerably.
The geriatric demographic in the nation is projected to grow from 48 million in 2016 to 98 million by 2060, as per a survey from the Population Reference Bureau called "Aging in the United States," In the coming years, to accelerate product demand, such parameters are essential. In the U.S., deaths related to chronic diseases are more common, with heart diseases, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases accounting for 868,000 per year, and respiratory diseases accounting for 156,979 deaths in 2019, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The cause of the COVID-19 pandemic is a coronavirus that is transmitted mainly by aerosols, direct contact, or droplets. Because of their repeated participation in aerosol-generating airway interventions, it has generated a higher infection risk for anesthetists. In the pandemic, this has triggered the sluggish adoption of laryngeal masks.
The disposable laryngeal mask accounted for the largest market share in 2019, due to the associated advantages of its application. It provides a comfortable airway for patients while reducing the chances of transmission of the disease as it is not reused and is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period. In critical care units, there is a growing need for disposable devices. This can be due to these technologies' cost-effectiveness, simple assembly, and versatile process designs. Also, during nitrous oxide anesthesia, laryngeal masks have a comparatively stable intracuff sensation.
The market for the reusable laryngeal mask is projected to broaden at a CAGR over the projected timeframe. The lowered cost of using these masks per patient is due to their growing adoption. Also, adequate availability of reusable laryngeal masks and relatively more compatible in vitro use enhance their demand.
The adult patient is expected to dominate the market share and also anticipated to grow during the expected timeframe at a high CAGR pace. It is due to the high incidence of adult chronic diseases, the increasingly larger population, and the growing number of surgeries performed that are some of the leading factors driving the segmental market growth.
As per the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, roughly half of U.S. residents suffer from at least one chronic disease. This illustrates the potential pressure of chronic conditions that are expected to drive the requirement for laryngeal masks in the upcoming years.
During the forecast era, during the projected timeframe, the hospitals & clinics segment accounted for the largest market share. It is due to the favorable reimbursement policies, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Medicare are easily accessed and available. Moreover, the key factors driving the hospital segment are the growing number of surgical procedures, well-equipped & trained professionals, and a wider patient pool for surgical procedures.
Over the forecast period, the Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs) sector is anticipated to record the fastest CAGR. The demand for outpatient services has been boosted by factors such as shorter length of stay, reduced waiting times, and personalized treatment, thus increasing the number of ASC surgeries performed.
In revenue terms, the North American region remains the leading marketplace for the upcoming years. This is attributable to the existence in the region of well-established infrastructure for health care. Also, the rising anesthesia adoption during surgery is driving product demand. The development can also be attributable to the standard regulatory mandates and the adoption of the guidelines of practice published in this region by healthcare institutions. Moreover, the region's laryngeal masks market is driven by an increasing geriatric population, rising neurological, orthopedic, and respiratory diseases that require surgery, government initiatives for surgical procedures, and enhanced awareness among people about health.
A significant CAGR rate will be demonstrated by the Asia-Pacific region over the expected timeframe. In emerging countries in the region, it can be attributed to an increase in the number of surgical procedures, improved health care infrastructure, and advanced technologies. Furthermore, the presence of a larger patient pool that requires high-quality, low-cost healthcare solutions drives the regional market growth.
Teleflex Incorporated, Dynarex Corporation, Ambu A/S, McKesson Corporation, Anandic Medical Systems, Besmed, Ferno, Legend Medical Devices, Inc., Intersurgical Ltd., Medtronic, Hitec Medical, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Narang Medical, Vogt Medical Vertrieb GmbH, and Hsiner among others are the prime competitors competing in the laryngeal mask the market.
