Market Dynamics

Global Capnography Device Market Drivers

The rapid growth of respiratory diseases

The prevalence and health impact of chronic respiratory disorders are estimated by the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) 2017. With a 39.8% rise since 1990, 545 million people globally had the chronic respiratory disease in 2017. The airways and other lung tissues deteriorate due to chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs). Among the most prevalent are asthma, pulmonary hypertension, occupational lung problems, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). According to the World Health Organization, 262 million people worldwide have asthma. Respiratory discomfort is one of the most often reported patient concerns. Waveform capnography is a beneficial method for pinpointing the cause and severity of respiratory distress, directing therapeutic choices, and tracking the patient's response to care. Increasing Respiratory Illness.

Capnography provides objective data on physical exam results, enabling the determination of the degree of respiratory distress. Reduced effort, anxiety, and respiratory rate can signify improved or deteriorated respiratory failure. Waveform capnography helps make a conclusive decision that will direct future treatment. There is a high demand for capnography equipment due to all the benefits that capnography offers patients with respiratory conditions.

Growing technological advancement

One of the main elements driving the adoption of these items worldwide is the growing technological progress in capnography equipment. Due to the development of novel approaches that are essential in monitoring respiratory function, the usage of capnography equipment for precise and effective airway management has increased. One of the key factors expected to propel the capnography device market growth globally is the rising preference for minimally invasive treatments for respiratory disorders. Additionally, several market participants have adopted a streamlined and contemporary device approach, resulting in a safer, more effective capnography instrument that produces the best results.

Global Capnography Device Market Restraints

High Cost and lack of knowledge

The need for qualified experts with the technical know-how to handle capnography equipment could expand the market. Because capnography equipment is sophisticated, it must be handled by skilled personnel. The usage of these technologies may be constrained by a need for more skilled labor, particularly in developing countries. The expensive nature of some capnography devices may also prevent the market from expanding. Additionally, the U.S. FDA closely monitors the advancement of these devices and grants commercialization permission for their effectiveness.

Global Capnography Device Market Opportunity

Increasing development of portable Capnograph

The growing development of portable capnography is one of the trends in the capnography equipment market. The market for capnography is developing as capnometers become increasingly preferred to oximetry. Demand on the market is also being boosted by an increase in minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures. The high Cost of these devices would constrain the size of the prospective market. In addition, the industry's expansion is being slowed by strict regulatory approval procedures for these devices. Additionally, the market will have significant growth chances due to expanding broad investment and the strong growth potential of emerging nations.

Regional Analysis

To evaluate the global capnography device market more comprehensively, we have explored the market across five regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa.

North America

The North American capnography device market is expected to hold a significant share during the forecast period, owing to the rising prevalence of respiratory diseases due to unhealthy lifestyles and high-stress levels. Hence, respiratory disease is endemic in the region, resulting in an increasing death toll. To address this issue, the deliberate demand for smaller capnography devices has subsequently increased in North America. The Lubbock hospital in Texas recently launched a new waveform technology, capnography, which has numerous benefits compared to traditional devices. 


The European capnography equipment market is divided into Germany, the UK, France, Italy, Spain, and the Rest of Europe. Europe now has a sizable market share and is anticipated to develop quickly over the following years. The expansion of life science research and rising R&D spending in the area fuel the market growth. 


The of Asia-Pacific in the global capnography device industry can be attributed to the increasing awareness and rising incidents of preterm birth. Moreover, several government initiatives regarding health safety are also expected to provide an impetus to regional market growth. Moreover, other regional market drivers include improving healthcare systems, rising healthcare spending, and increasing awareness about adopting capnography technology. 


The LAMEA capnography device industry is expected to witness steady growth during the forecast period. This is attributed to the vogue of plastic surgery and the prevalence of respiratory ailments. Latin America comprises several emerging nations where nearly 600 million inhabitants exhibit a demographic transition that combines significant population growth with a progressive geriatric population. The region has a vast majority of asthma patients receiving inadequate care in terms of diagnosis and monitoring, resulting in a substantial morbidity rate.
