Report Code: HCR 73072 Report Format: PDF + Excel

Breathing Circuits Market Overview  

Breathing Circuits Market size was estimated at $1.1 billion in 2020, projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Breathing Circuits industry is witnessing huge demand owing to rising number of coronavirus cases and also asthma cases worldwide. A breathing machine, also known as a breathing circuit or mapelson is a medical device that delivers oxygen, removes carbon dioxide, and administers inhaled anesthetics to a patient. 

An anesthesia machine is a device that administers general anesthesia to patients during a medical procedure that provides a steady flow of air with a controlled supply of gas, is the most widely used system. Inhalation anesthetics are used in operating room to induce and maintain general anesthesia. Breathing circuits are effective, simple, and meet the anesthetic needs of neonates, infants, children, and adults. 

The uprightness of entire anesthesia or ventilation framework is dependent on breathing circuits since they interact directly with the patient. After leaving the anesthesia pump, the anesthetic gas enters a breathing circuit. The circuit's capability is to provide the patient with oxygen and anesthetic gases while also destroying CO2. In order to ensure that patients receive optimal comfort and treatment, manufacturers in the global breathing circuits market are focusing on integrating moisture filters and advanced heat, face masks, and tubes. 

Sales of Breathing circuits, Anesthesia machines, Mapleson in the healthcare industry are continuing to rise as the number of emergency cases in hospitals rises. Breathing circuits are increasingly being used to distribute medications to the elderly, babies, and children because they reduce the risk of contamination from the environment. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of barotrauma has aided the growth of the global breathing circuits industry.

Breathing Circuits Market Segment Analysis – By Product Type

Based on Product Type, Breathing Circuits Market is segmented into Open, Semi-Open, Closed and Semi-Closed. Open Breathing Circuit segment is accounted for the largest revenue market share in 2020. The open breathing circuit is a conventional method for providing patients with a continuous supply of oxygen and other necessary gases. The devices in open circuits are packed with filtered, compressed air instead of pure oxygen. 
Two controllers are used in standard open-circuit, one to lower the air pressure so that it can be carried to the mask, and another to adjust the level just above standard atmospheric pressure. Depending on case, this air is then guided to the mask through a demand valve or a continuous positive pressure valve. 
The Semi-Open breathing circuits segment is poised to grow with the fastest CAGR of 3.8% in the forecast period 2021-2026. Since semi-open breathing circuits are effective at maintaining anesthesia, they are commonly used. It has a relatively high fresh gas flow, which allows for the use of a vaporizer outside of the circle, which should aid segmental development.

Breathing Circuits Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Based on Application, Breathing Circuits Market is segmented into Respiratory Dysfunction, Anesthesia. Anesthesia segment is accounted for the largest revenue market share in 2020. Because of the rising burden of chronic diseases, the anesthesia segment is predicted to experience significant growth in the coming years. The rising incidence of cardiovascular diseases, which are the leading cause of death in humans, would increase demand for anesthesia, resulting in segment development. 
In the control mode, most anesthesia machine ventilators are timed to provide ventilator support. Inhalational anesthetics are used to induce and maintain general anesthesia. The most common inhalational anesthetics are nitrous oxide, desflurane. The most widely used among these is Sevoflurane that has a quick onset of action and allows patients to recover quickly. 
Anesthesia is widely used during surgical procedures to relieve surgical discomfort during intervention that aid the growth of the segment. Respiratory Dysfunction, segment is anticipated to grow with the fastest CAGR of 3.9% in the forecast period 2021-2026. 
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) without a ventilator is used to provide non-invasive ventilation for paediatric patients with acute respiratory failure using a Mapleson D circuit with a high success rate. Mapleson systems are classified as A, B, C, D and E based on arrangement of the components (Reservoir bag, expiratory valve, patient connection, Fresh gas flow, breathing tubes).  The best available circuit for synchronized breathing in adults is Mapleson A, whereas the best available circuit for spontaneous breathing is Mapelson D and its Bains modifications.

Breathing Circuits Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Based on Geography, North America Breathing Circuits Market accounted for the 41% revenue share in 2020. This is majorly attributed to the technological advancement and rising geriatric population. Between 1980 and 2014, the overall incidence of death from chronic respiratory diseases like COPD increased by around 30% in the United States, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. 

In the United States in 2015, chronic respiratory diseases were the fifth leading cause of death, accounting for 6.7 percent of all deaths. Chronic respiratory disorders is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. Asia-Pacific market is anticipated to grow with the fastest CAGR in the forecast period 2021-2026. Growing geriatric population, an increase in health-care spending in addition with advancements in healthcare infrastructure are some of the factors projected to drive the breathing circuit market in Asia Pacific.

By 2050, one in every four citizens in the Asia Pacific region will be 60 years old or older, according to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP). The population of the region is aging at an alarming rate, with the number of elderly people forecast to more than double by 2050, from 535 million in 2050.

Breathing Circuits Market Segment Analysis-Drivers

Rising prevalence of Respiratory Diseases:

The global demand for breathing circuits is continuing to rise due to the rising prevalence of chronic inflammation caused by smoking. The rising prevalence of asthma, chronic coughing, and bronchial cancer is also driving demand for breathing circuits. According to the CDC, asthma affects 18.4 million people aged 18 and up, or 7.6% of the adult population. Owing to the prevalence of these diseases, there has been an increase in demand for deep breathing. 
The anesthetic gases and oxygen are supplied by the ventilation loops, which eliminate CO2. This device serves as a gas reservoir, protecting the patient from the breathing system's unnecessary pressure. A considerable number of people suffering from asthma and other diseases, as well as a growing market for advanced products, made Europe a significant area of the breathing circuit market in 2017. Asthma affects 5.4 million people in the UK, with 1.1 million children (1 in 11) and 4.3 million adults seeking care, according to Asthma UK (1 in 12).

Breathing Circuits Market Segment Analysis-Challenges

Side Effects Of Inhalation Anesthetics:

Respiratory depression, where Inhalational anesthetics cause a decrease in arterial blood pressure and cerebral metabolic demand, as well as an increase in cerebral blood flow. The most common side effect is nausea, that varies depending on the drug (e.g., halothane can cause hepatotoxicity). Some of the side effects and toxicities of inhaled anesthetics that are poised to impede market growth include nephrotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, cardiac arrhythmias, neurotoxicity, postoperative nausea and vomiting, respiratory depression and agitation, malignant hyperthermia, and postanaesthetic agitation.
