Hypothermia is a major cause of death in severely wounded patients. Rewarming is a major challenge, particularly for those who need operative or angiographic intervention. Patient warming is more than providing relief to the patients. Patient warming devices help patients to tolerate the unintended loss of body heat by helping them achieve normal body temperature or normothermia, leading to faster recovery. Patient warming devices are primarily used in health care settings by physicians and nursing staff for better care of the patients during surgeries and patient transfer, severely injured or diseased patients, anesthesia treated patients, and in acute care settings.
The increase in the number of surgical procedures, rise in the prevalence of cardiovascular and oncology conditions, growing geriatric population and various other factors has facilitated the growth of the market. Additionally, the introduction of technologically advanced products and increasing the awareness can create large number of opportunities for rapid growth of the market.
The global patient warming devices market is expected to reach US$2.78 bn by the end of 2024. The market was valued at US$1.73 bn in 2015. If these figures hold true, the global market will exhibit a CAGR of 5.3% between 2016 and 2024.
Use of Patient Warming Devices to Remain High in Perioperative Care
The market consists of various types of products such as surface warming systems, intravascular warming systems and patient warming accessories. Of these, surface warming systems accounted for 76% of the overall market in 2015, thus emerging as the leading segment. Through the course of the forecast period, the segment is expected to retain its dominance as surface warming systems are safe, efficient, simple to use, and come at low cost. However, the intravascular warming systems segment is expected to report a higher CAGR during the course of the forecast period. The growth witness in the segment is ascribable to the rising incidence of cardiovascular ailments, traumatic brain injury, and stroke.
Major patient warming device applications comprise four segments: Acute care, perioperative care, new born care, and others. Among major application segments for patient warming devices, acute care applications are gaining intense popularity and there have been increasing demand from acute care centers located world over. The perioperative care segment held the largest share in the global market in 2015. It is also expected to remain the dominant application segment through the forecast period. The rising incidence of severe illnesses and disorders that lead to the requirement of surgical intervention is often accompanied by hypothermia. Therefore, perioperative care segment would increasingly contribute towards the global patient warming devices market during the forecast period.
