Pulse Oximeters Market Overview

The pulse oximeters market could anticipate growth at a rate of close to 6.5 percent between 2020 and 2027, reveals MRFR (Market Research Future).

The demand for pulse oximeters has surged rapidly over the years, given the huge prominence of respiratory disorders worldwide; as well as the blossoming elderly population. The higher susceptibility of elderly individuals to various chronic diseases fosters the need for remote monitoring devices like pulse oximeters. Besides, the rising fundings to upgrade the healthcare infrastructure, technological developments in pulse oximeter devices and the escalating number of medical device firms in emerging countries should enhance the market size in the approaching years.

However, with soaring concerns with regard to the accuracy of certain non-medical pulse oximeters along with the unfavorable regulations pertaining to pulse oximeters, the business growth can slow down to some extent in the coming years.

On the bright side, with the mounting preference for patient monitoring in non-medical settings and the surge in surgical procedures and the growth potential of point-of-care testing, market firms will be presented with a series of lucrative opportunities in the future. At present, with the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases, the need for respiratory monitoring and use of pulse oximeters for self and remote monitoring has soared. This factor is bound to propel the growth rate of the pulse oximeter industry in the years to come.

Segments - Detailed Outlook

The pulse oximeters industry, in terms of products, consists of handheld, fingertip, and others. The various application sub-segments are medical amenities, hospitals, respiratory & cardiac centers, homecare, etc. Regions into which the market is split, comprise Asia Pacific, Europe, Americas, and the Middle East and Africa. Among products, handheld devices led the pulse oximeters market.

The shares of handheld pulse oximeters were ascribed to massive ‘vital stats’ device usage and escalating surgical procedures. Additionally, the early diagnosis of life-long illnesses & disorders lowers more complexities and assists better treatments. Moreover, the identification of health risks are always beneficial in preventing other illnesses or relapses.

Also, heightened awareness about the significance of keeping patients under proper observation has positively impacted the pulse oximeters market. Fingertip devices have also become more popular, with them being the most rapidly evolving sub-segment. Their non-invasive nature has helped them gain traction & patient convenience.

With respect to applications, medical amenities and hospitals maintained supremacy over the industry. The said fact was basically credited to multiple hypertension, heart arrhythmia, and COPD incidences. The pulse oximeters market was led by the Americas. Europe was close behind, followed by Asia Pacific that was likely to be the fastest expanding pulse oximeters market over the forecast period.
