The global inhalation anesthesia market was valued at $1,137 million in 2018 and is expected to reach $1,549 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 4.2% from 2019 to 2026. Anesthetic agents are used during surgical procedures to control pain, breathing, blood pressure, blood flow, and heart rate & rhythm. Inhalational anesthesia is primarily used for the induction of general anesthesia and sedation purposes. The most widely used inhalational anesthetics are sevoflurane, desflurane, and nitrous oxide. Inhalational anesthetics usually result in respiratory depression, reduction in arterial blood pressure and cerebral metabolic demand, and rise in cerebral blood flow. The most common side effect of inhalation anesthesia is nausea. 

Inhalation Anesthesia Market

Significant rise in the number of emergency incidences and road accidents; surge in prevalence of various disorders such as cancer, respiratory diseases, and gastrointestinal disorders; upsurge in number of surgical procedures; and increased use of these in various disease diagnosis drive the inhalation anesthesia market growth. Further, there is an increase in incidence of various chronic diseases such as cancer, infectious diseases, and genetic disorders worldwide. According to the WHO, cancer is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with about 18 million cases in 2018 alone, and id expected to increase by about 70% over the next two decades. Infections known to be caused by strains of cancer are most prominent in low- and middle-income countries. In addition, factors such as innovations in these inhalation devices and governmental support regarding the use of inhalation anesthetics further fuel the market growth. However, risks associated with certain therapeutic and diagnostic devices for neonates and low adoption rate of new technologies, owing to reluctance from physicians for treatment, restrain the growth of the inhalation anesthesia devices market. In addition, environmental concerns regarding vigorous usage of inhalation anesthesia is anticipated to hamper the market growth. In addition, current trend in FDA drug approval exhibits drastic drop in pharmaceutical approvals compared to earlier authorizations, as FDA issued more rejections than typical rejections in past few years. Moreover, stringent regulations set by FDA in surgical procedures also hinder the growth of the inhalation anesthesia market. Moreover, significant rise in elderly population and increase in healthcare expenditures in developing economies are anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the market. In addition, emerging economies of Asia-Pacific and LAMEA offer lucrative growth opportunities for the expansion of inhalation anesthesia market, due to improvement in healthcare infrastructure and increase in demand for better healthcare. In addition, rise in incidences of road accidents, surgical procedures, and various diseases such as cancer and gastrointestinal disorders boost the demand for inhalation anesthesia.
