Global Portable Medical Ventilators Market Overview


Global Portable Medical Ventilators Market size was estimated to be USD 489.3 Million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 583.47 Million by the end of 2030. It is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 9.20% from 2022 to 2030.


Market Synopsis


Portable ventilators deliver oxygen into the breathing circuit, where it can be humified by a heated humidifier or heat & moisture exchanger before delivery to the patient. These ventilators can be used for treating patients with conditions such as pneumonia, COVID 19, and during mass casualty events, among others. The increasing demand for ventilators, due to the global outbreak of COVID 19, the rapid growth of the geriatric population, and rising incidences of respiratory emergencies are the key factors that are expected to drive the market growth. Moreover, increasing incidences of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a rise in government expenditure on healthcare, and an increasing number of ventilator-associated pneumonia are also expected to boost market growth. 


Ventilators provide ambient air or oxygen-enriched gas into the breathing chamber and are intended to support patients experiencing life-threatening issues. These ventilators are employed in situations requiring emergency treatment, intensive care, sedation, and in-home care. During the forecast period, an increase in patient transportation in hospitals and nursing homes is anticipated to fuel the market for portable ventilators worldwide. Patients with chronic conditions are given oxygen through portable ventilators. In the upcoming years, the aging population is projected to accelerate market growth. Elderly persons are more likely to develop chronic illnesses and may need portable ventilators to help them breathe. 


These ventilators can be used, among other things, to treat individuals with illnesses like COVID 19, pneumonia, and large-scale casualty occurrences. The main elements anticipated to propel market expansion are the rising instances of respiratory emergencies, the rising geriatric population, and the increased need for ventilators due to the global COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, it is anticipated that rising rates of ventilator-associated pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, and government healthcare spending would all contribute to market expansion. There is a high frequency of tobacco use, the requirement for quick access to patient care, the rise in respiratory disease prevalence, the rapid geriatric population development, the incidence of premature births, and other factors.


The market's potential is, however, constrained by the availability of locally inexpensive goods and the ventilators' problems. Patients in the ICU can benefit from portable ventilator support. Ventilators have solid batteries, with more than eight hours of battery life are offered by almost every one of the portable ventilator manufacturers. When moving patients between different healthcare facilities, portable ventilators are helpful. Compared to mechanical ventilators, these are lighter, smaller, and require less external power. They also consume less gas.

Portable Medical Ventilators Market Segment Insights


 Portable Medical Ventilators Mode Insights



  • Combined-mode ventilation: This segment is the fastest-growing segment. These ventilators provide mandatory breathes which are synchronized with patient’s spontaneous efforts at a preset rate.



  • Pressure-mode ventilation: This is the largest segment. In pressure-mode ventilation, the pressure is the controlled parameter and time is the signal that ends inspiration.



  • Volume-mode ventilation: These ensure that the patient will receive a specific tidal volume.



  • Others: The other mode of ventilators includes assist-control ventilation, synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation, airway pressure release ventilation, and pressure support ventilation.


Portable Medical Ventilators Interface Insights



  • Non-invasive ventilation: The non-invasive ventilation is the delivery of oxygen via a face mask and therefore, eliminating the need for an endotracheal airway. This is the fastest-growing segment. There are two types of non-invasive ventilations - non-invasive positive pressure ventilation, and non-invasive negative pressure ventilation.



  • Invasive ventilation: This is the largest segment. The invasive ventilation utilizes a tube that is physically inserted into the patient’s throat or trachea, thus invading the respiratory airway.


Portable Medical Ventilators Age Group Insights



  • Infant/neonatal ventilators: These provide ventilator support to preterm and critically ill infants who suffer from respiratory failure and who generally have low-compliance lungs, small tidal volumes, high respiratory rates, and high airway resistance.



  • Adult/pediatric ventilators: The adult/pediatric ventilators are the fastest growing and largest segment. These ventilators provide ventilator support to the patients especially in the emergency department who are suffering from cardiogenic pulmonary edema, stroke, asthma, pneumonia, and neuromuscular disorders.


Portable Medical Ventilators End-User Insights



  • Hospitals & clinics: In hospitals and clinics, ventilators are used to support patients with severe respiratory conditions that impact the lungs, including pneumonia. This is the largest and fastest-growing segment.



  • Ambulatory care centers: Ambulatory care centers are medical care facilities that provide outpatient services. These centers provide services to chronic disease clinics and infectious disease treatments.



  • Home care settings: Patients with symptomatic chronic ventilation are chronically dependent on ventilators at home care settings.


News:Dr. Fisher's research began to pique the interest of the United States Marine Corps. Large, hefty, and potentially dangerous oxygen tanks were being hauled to military operation areas by their medical teams; therefore, they had been seeking ways to cut back on their utilization. Over nearly five years, science and technology were gradually combined. The Canadian business currently employs roughly 70 people. With the help of its team and collaborators worldwide, it continues to conduct research and development and routinely publishes in scholarly journals. MOVES SLC has been sold worldwide, and MADM and ClearMate have also been introduced. A portable gadget called the MADM connects to any ventilator to give gas anesthesia, and it can operate in challenging terrain. ClearMate is a tool that enables prompt intervention for carbon monoxide poisoning. It is also portable and battery-free. The effects on the brain and other organs worsen with each second if this most prevalent respiratory illness is left untreated.
