The number of pipeline Anesthesia and Respiratory products in 2021 saw a 52% drop globally when compared to Anesthesia and Respiratory pipeline products in 2020, according to GlobalData’s pipeline products database. This compares to an 15% rise for all pipeline medical devices in 2021 compared to 2020.
The global Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices market was worth $16.34bn in 2020 and is expected to reach $18.94bn by 2025, according to GlobalData’s analysis.
Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices pipeline products by categories: Respiratory Devices has the most devices
Looking at the device categories of pipeline products, Respiratory Devices accounted for the largest proportion (49.02%) in 2021, followed by Diagnostic and Measurement Devices (23.53%) and Airway Management (20.59%).
Of the global medical devices market value, the Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices market held a 3% share worth $16bn in 2021 and is expected to reach $18.94bn by 2025.
Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices development activity: Advanced stage of development leads
Devices at an advanced stage of development (in clinical trials, in the approval process, already approved in Europe or the rest of the world) accounted for 45.63% of medical devices in 2021, compared with 38.97% in 2020. The number of devices at the In Approval stage declined by 64% in 2021, when compared with 2020.
The In Approval stage is considered to be the period where the manufacturer is waiting for final approval from regulators, following completion of the required development steps.
A decrease in products awaiting approval would indicate less new products entering the market in the coming months, while an increase indicates more devices entering the market, posing a market share threat to existing marketed devices.
North America tops pipeline Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices products activity
Comparing the number of pipeline Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices products activity in different regions of the globe, North America held the top position (55%) during 2021, followed by Asia-Pacific (28%), and Europe (15%).
On a country level, the US had the most pipeline Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices during the year, representing the largest share (54%) of Anesthesia and Respiratory pipeline products. In second place was India (12%), followed by China (8%).
New pipeline Anesthesia and Respiratory medical devices: Expected to be approved by 2025
According to GlobalData, approximately 49% of pipeline Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices in 2021 were expected to receive regulatory approval by the end of 2025. The leading categories for devices expected to receive regulatory approval by the end of 2025 was Pulse Oximeter Systems, at 6% of devices. Differences in regulatory approval timelines reflect the stage of development for a device, the device complexity or risk categorization (or device class) or if there are changes in regulatory oversight.
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Corporation Ltd tops Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices development in 2021
According to GlobalData, top ten medical device companies accounted for 21.57% of pipeline Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices activity during 2021. The leading company for developing Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices was Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Corporation Ltd with 2.94%, followed by All India Institute of Medical Sciences at 2.94%.
Companies launching new medical devices are more likely to disrupt existing market share or are better able to defend existing share.
Company-developed pipeline products lead Anesthesia and Respiratory Devices in development
Looking at the share of activity in terms of Anesthesia and Respiratory pipeline products developers, company-developed pipeline products accounted for a 71% share of the Anesthesia and Respiratory medical devices market, while institute-developed pipeline products held the remaining share.
The monthly average for 2021 saw company-developed Anesthesia and Respiratory pipeline products account for 71% of pipeline products and institute-developed pipeline products account for 29%.
