Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzer Market Segment Analysis – By End Use
Point-of-Care accounted for the largest market share in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% owing to the increasing demand of rapid diagnostic near patient’s bed side and reducing healthcare expenditure by avoiding long hospital stays. Reduction in the length of hospital stay is one of the major advantages of point of care testing; the quick availability of the test result reduces the time to make decision, thereby allowing more prompt screening, treatment or discharge. Increasing number of chronic diseases and rapid patient care that is possible because of point of care testing, along with high demand of the end user for a safe alternative due to the COVID-19 pandemic are the other major factors driving the Point-of-Care segment in Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzer Market during the forecast period 2021-2026.
Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzer Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
Based on geography, North America dominated the Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzer Market with a region share of 40.2% in 2020 followed by Europe and APAC. Rising geriatric population, growing cardiopulmonary resuscitation cases and increasing health concerns are the major factors propelling the growth in this region. The presence of a large number of clinics and easy availability of technologically advanced instruments in this region is further driving the market growth in this region. However, Asia Pacific is set to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period 2021-2026 owing to the increased demand of advanced treatment and a better healthcare structure.
Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzers Market Drivers
Increasing incidence of chronic diseases
Increasing incidence of chronic diseases leading to diabetes and other cardiovascular disease is a major factor driving the Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzer Market during the forecast period 2021-2026. According to the World Health Organization about 422 million people worldwide have diabetes particularly in low and middle-income countries and 1.6 million deaths are directly attributed to diabetes each year, similarly, an estimated 17.9 million lives are lost each year due to cardiovascular diseases making it the number one cause of death globally. The growing diabetes and cardiovascular patients is leading to the increase in diagnosis and thereby propelling the market.
Technological Advancement in Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzer
Technological Advancements in Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzer is a major factor driving its market during the forecast period 2021-2025. For example NY based Siemens Healthcare Diagnostic offers the RAPIDPoint 500 Blood Gas System, which provide critical care values in approximately 1 minute with a full test menu from a single sample allowing clinicians to focus on improved patient care. Test parameters include in these technological advanced analyzer include blood gas, electrolytes, metabolites, co-oximetry, and pleural fluid pH moreover these analyzer system can also be set up to record key ventilator settings in critical care setting such as flow, respiratory rate, continuous positive airway pressure, positive end expiratory pressure and Allen test thereby contributing to the growth of its market.
Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzers Market Challenges
High Cost of the Product
High cost associated with the product serves as a major setback for the growth of the Blood Gas Analyzer Market during the forecast period 2022-2026. Blood Gas and Electrolyte Analyzers aspirate blood from the syringe and measure pH and partial pressures of oxygen and carbon dioxide. These results are usually available for interpretation with five minutes. However, high cost associated with the product such as ABL90 Flex Blood Gas Analyzer, RAPIDPoint 500 Blood Gas System and ABL80 Flex Blood Gas Analyzer is a significant challenging factor that is predicted to impede the future market growth.
