The global anesthesia face masks market size is expected to reach over USD 133 million by 2026. The global market includes a rapidly growing advanced category of treatment devices that help patients suffering from diseases to improve their quality of life. In the last several decades, these devices have been available worldwide, and the adoption has been increasing steadily. The growing adoption of percutaneous surgery procedures for diagnosis and treatment is expected to drive the growth of the anesthesia face masks market. Moreover, the increasing uptake of latex-free thermoplastics and silicone material with improved biocompatibility, bio-durability, and high chemical-resistance is likely to increase product innovations, thereby influencing the market growth.
- APAC is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to the high growth potential in low-income countries in the region.
- The silicone material segment is projected to observe strong growth over the forecast period due to several features, including biocompatibility, bio-inertness, and excellent physical properties.
- The adult age group segment is likely to account for over $108 million by 2026. This growth is due to the high uptake of anesthesia face masks in several surgical procedures in the adult population.
- The disposable segment is projected to observe an incremental growth of approx—$ 22 million by 2026 on account of increased emphasis on maintaining hygiene standards in hospitals and clinics.
GLOBAL ANESTHESIA FACE MASKS MARKET SEGMENTATION
This research report offers a detailed segmentation by
- Age Group
INSIGHTS BY MATERIAL
Silicone masks constitute the highest market share as they are commercially viable and easily available. Over the last few decades, the use of silicone material has grown steadily. As the material is biocompatible, it is an ideal choice during surgical procedures. The segment is expected to grow on account of several factors, including flexibility in temperature ranges and resistance to compression sets, increasing their popularity overall.
As PVC material offers excellent durability, chemical resistance, low maintenance, and affordable, these devices are likely to reach a revenue figure of over $62 million by 2026. With increasing emphasis on sustainability, PVC material is safe, reliable, and cost-effective in healthcare settings and easily recyclable, which is expected to increase its application.
INSIGHTS BY USABILITY
Single-use or disposable anesthesia masks have become crucial for maintaining hygiene and patient safety in healthcare settings. As these masks score high on comfort, safety, performance, and reliability along with antibacterial assurance and environmental safety, disposable masks become an ideal choice. Amid the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of single-use medical products, including masks, is highly recommended to prevent infections in healthcare settings. This is further fueling the uptake of single-use face masks. On the other hand, economic effectiveness and environmental concerns are the major factors responsible for reusable masks' growth. Although these masks account for less than 12% of the market during the forecast period, factors such as sustainability and cost efficiency drive the application of reusable anesthesia face masks.
INSIGHTS BY AGE GROUP
The high incidence and prevalence of several chronic and acute diseases that need surgical treatment boost the application of anesthesia masks among adults. Also, the growing geriatric population and changes in lifestyles are other major factors contributing to the market's growth. With the rise in the aging population, which is vulnerable to several acute and chronic disorders, adult anesthesia face masks are likely to dominate the revenues.
Across the world, the prevalence of several ailments in the pediatric population is growing steadily. Therefore, the application of anesthesia masks is likely to grow during the forecast period. Also, the burden of surgical procedures in LMICs is strikingly high, with the number of children requiring surgical interventions growing annually. The pediatric group represents a population with unique surgical requirements. Therefore, the rise in the number of surgeries in the pediatric patient segment is expected to increase the focus on developing pediatric anesthesia face masks, thereby contributing to future growth.
INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
The North American anesthesia face masks market share is expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period due to growing technological advancements that increase medical devices' uptake. The increased healthcare spending in the US and Canada is further increasing the usage of anesthesia face masks in the region. The market dynamics is characterized by high penetration of advanced treatment solutions, such as phthalate-free material face masks. With favorable patient demography and the growing population, the region is likely to offer tremendous growth opportunities for the market in the future.
Europe is the second-largest market for anesthesia face masks and accounted for a share of around 31% in 2020. The presence of prominent market players, better disease awareness, and high healthcare spending are the primary factors for this region's significant market share. Germany, France, the UK, Italy, and Spain are the major revenue contributors to this region.
INSIGHTS BY VENDORS
Advances in technology, particularly in material, are leading to rapid change in the market. The key vendors include large manufacturers with multiple business lines and small manufacturers with limited but specialized product offerings. Vendors, especially global players, are increasingly focusing on pursuing organic growth strategies such as product innovations and emerging companies to expand their presence, enhance product portfolio, and improve market expertise. Such initiatives will complement vendors’ growth strategies, thereby gaining traction among end-users in the market. Ambu, Cardinal Health, GE Healthcare, Medline Industries, and ARMSTRONG MEDICAL are the key vendors.
