By Product Insights

Rigid video laryngoscopes segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023

The rigid video laryngoscopes segment accounted for the largest share. Segment’s dominance is attributed to the increasing use of rigid-type video laryngoscopes over traditional laryngoscopes as they require minimal head manipulation and positioning.

The flexible video laryngoscopes segment is projected to grow at the highest growth. This growth is due to its ability to enable the user to visualize biopsy and abnormalities and aid in the removal of small growths. Moreover, the rising adoption of these laryngoscopes by doctors to access a clear and complete view of the motion of vocal cords is further propelling the segment’s growth.

By Usage Type Insights

The reusable segment held the significant market share in 2023

The reusable segment held the majority market share. Segment’s dominance is driven by the widespread use and adoption of reusable video laryngoscopes because of their numerous advantages, including ease of use and better functionality as compared to conventional laryngoscopes.

The disposable video laryngoscope segment registers the highest growth rate on account of its surging usage in pre-hospital settings and substantial increase in the need and proliferation to reduce operational costs by avoiding or minimizing the reprocessing costs and risk of cross-infection.    

By Channel Type Insights

Non-channeled segment led the market with substantial share in 2023

The non-channeled segment led the market, which is majorly driven by its numerous advantages, including ease of insertion and the ability to offer greater flexibility while intubating patients. Apart from this, non-channeled video laryngoscopes offer higher flexibility in the methodology of securing the airway and are being widely used by experienced users worldwide, which, in turn, bodes well for segment market growth.

The channeled segment is also projected to exhibit the highest growth rate. This growth is fueled by the rise in surgical procedures, a growing incidence of respiratory disorders, and a surging prevalence of difficult airways that creates significant demand for efficient or advanced airway management services like channeled video laryngoscopes.

By End-Use Insights

Pre-hospitals segment is expected to witness highest growth

The pre-hospital segment will grow at the highest growth rate over the video laryngoscope market forecast period. Segment’s growth is accelerated by its rising usage in emergency facilities and growing adoption because of its ability to provide improved visualization of the airway structures and also offer fast and more efficient intubation in emergencies.

The in-hospital segment accounted for notable market share, owing to the growing number of airway management procedures being performed under these facilities as it enhances the visualization that contributes to successful intubation on the first try, which makes it a more efficient and safer process for patients and physicians as well.

Regional Insights

North America region dominated the global market in 2023

The North America region dominated the global market. The region’s growth is attributed to the region’s continuously growing geriatric population and prevalence of respiratory disorders in adults, coupled with the significant increase in air pollution and exposure to tobacco smoke that results in effective airway management solutions and processes. For instance, according to our findings, more than 34 million people in the United States are currently living with some type of chronic disease like asthma and COPD, which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to emerge as the fastest growing region. Region’s growth is driven by growing infrastructural and technological up-gradation in the healthcare device sector and constant growth in healthcare infrastructure in emerging economies like China, India, Japan, and Malaysia, which boost the incorporation of advanced video laryngoscopes solutions to meet the unmet needs of patients across the region.
