Capnography Device Market 2
Capnography Device Market 2


Global Capnography Devices Market is anticipated to grow with an elevated CAGR of around 9% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Capnography devices are advanced etCO2 monitors that simplify patient monitoring by allowing clinicians to measure terminal exhaled CO2 and multiple vital signs on the same device. Mainly capnography is used to measure CO2 concentrations in respiratory gas for the study of various respiratory diseases and precisely measure the level of CO2 discharged into the bloodstream. The Capnography device shows the result in a graphical manner on the monitor.

The growing adoption of capnography devices can be attributed to the rising prevalence of various respiratory diseases, central airway obstruction, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, etc. coupled with a rapidly growing geriatric population. According to the ODPHP, Currently more than 25 million people, in the United States have asthma. Approximately 14.8 million adults have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and approximately 12 million people have not yet been diagnosed. COPD is the 4th leading cause of death in the United States. This increase in respiratory disease in the population is creating the demand for capnography devices. Thereby, boosting the capnography device market globally.

Furthermore, the capnography device market is anticipated to grow on account of the growing technological advancement, a large number of ongoing research activities in this field, and various advantages such as fast and accurate reading, associated with the capnography devices. Some other benefits include favorable reimbursement policies, higher reliability and efficiency, and satisfactory clinical outcomes. However, some of the restraints in the market include stringent regulatory frameworks for the equipment and high costs of devices that are impeding the growth of this market all over the world.
