Ventilator Breathing Circuit Market

The Ventilator Breathing Circuit Market Driven By Growing Medical Ventilator Industry Is Estimated To Be Valued At US$ 980 Million In 2023

The ventilator breathing circuit, also known as ventilator tubing, connects the mechanical ventilator to the patient. It allows for inhalation of oxygen-enriched gas and exhalation of carbon dioxide from the patient’s airway. Ventilator breathing circuits are composed of corrugated tubing, an inspiratory limb, an expiratory limb, a wye-piece connector, and a heated humidifier. They offer several advantages over traditional oxygen masks, including better control over oxygen levels administered, measurement of exhaled gases, and prevention of infection spread through closed-circuit ventilation. The growing prevalence of respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the rising geriatric population has increased the demand for medical ventilators. Hence, the ventilator breathing circuit market is witnessing significant growth.

The global Ventilator Breathing Circuit Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 980 million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 12% over the forecast period of 2023-2033, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends in the ventilator breathing circuit market is the development of disposable circuits. Previously, the circuits used to be reusable and required sterilization between uses. However, the shift towards single-use circuits helps prevent the spread of infections. Disposable circuits eliminate the need for cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilizing reusable circuits. This reduces nursing time spent on reprocessing circuits and the risk of contamination. Moreover, disposable circuits provide consistent performance and are more convenient compared to reusable circuits. Hence, major ventilator circuit manufacturers are focusing on developing innovative disposable circuits to cater to the growing demand.
