Ventilator Market Dynamics
A major trend observed in the ventilator market is a rise in demand for compact, low-maintenance ventilators. Such ventilators are designed in a way that they can be operated manually, in settings where electricity supply is not available. Besides, the growing preference for home-based health solutions is fueling the demand for these ventilators.
Globally, the ventilator market is being driven by the increase in the healthcare expenditure of several countries, with governments making investments for the improvement of medical facilities for the people. Rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases can be viewed as a major factor driving government investments in healthcare. This increase in healthcare expenditure for improved accessibility to diagnostic and treatment facilities is also resulting in the demand for essential medical products, including ventilators.
Increasing preference for home healthcare solutions can be viewed as a factor offering immense growth opportunities to the players in the ventilator market. This increasing trend of home healthcare can be attributed to the rise in geriatric population, as individuals in this age group prefer healthcare solutions that are easy to use and can be used at the comfort of home.
