Laryngoscopes are the devices designed for visualizing the vocal cords and also for the placements of the endotracheal tube (ETT) into the trachea under direct vision. It is used mainly in the process of laryngoscopy. Laryngoscopy is the process used to view the larynx or vocal folds and the glottis. It facilitates the tracheal intubation during general anesthesia or cardiopulmonary resuscitation for surgical procedures on the larynx or other parts of the upper tracheobronchial tree. There are two main types of the blades used in the laryngoscopes namely curved macintosh blade or miller with curved tip and straight blade or Wisconsin or foregger with straight tip. They are available in various sizes for various aged patients. Newly launched laryngoscopes like glidescope video laryngoscope, airtraq laryngoscope, McGrath video laryngoscope, pentax airway scope, truview video laryngoscope provide various advantages like reduction in the number of difficult or failed intubations and incidences of dental damage. These instruments need the increased awareness of potential complications, advanced training and also the supervision for the selected patient for the proper outcomes with negligible complications. The bonfils retromolar intubation fiberscope, bullard laryngoscope, and the intubation tracheoscope are rarely used laryngoscopes as it requires great skill of handling and only experienced staff are capable of handling it in difficult situation. The rigid tracheoscope can be used to diagnose the tumors, scars and abscesses in the oropharynx, base of tongue and larynx.
COVID-19 Scenario Analysis:
To take care of infected population, the demand for medical supplies is increasing. Respiratory support devices such as atomizer, life-support machine, oxygen generator, and monitor are among the majorly used medical devices in primary clinical treatment. Moreover, COVID-19 has led to a huge surge in demand for medical supplies such as personal protective equipment including masks, gloves, and protective eyeglasses. With rise in number of COVID-19 cases worldwide, the need for medical supplies keeps on rising among, both from healthcare professionals and civil population for precautionary measures. Manufacturers of these products have a chance to capitalize this increased demand of medical supplies to ensure adequate and continuous supply of personal protective equipment in the market.
Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, impact analysis
Major factors responsible for increase in the growth of the laryngoscopes market include rise in the demand for minimally invasive surgeries for laryngeal disease such as vocal cords or throat tumour treatment, growing awareness about the advantages of the devices among the healthcare professionals, increase in the geriatric population which increases the use of devices, rise in the production of technologically advanced multifunctional laryngoscopes, increase in R&D activities of the devices, growth in the adoption of the video laryngoscope, and development of disposable blade laryngoscopes to reduce the cross-contamination issues.
However, the soft tissue injury caused by the instrument, chipping of teeth, and laryngospasm are some of the key factors posing the restraints to the growth of the laryngoscopes market.
New product launches to flourish the market
In September 2019, Olympus Company launched a new generation video Rhino-laryngoscope. It is a lighter and slimmer laryngoscope for better visualisation of the parts.
In January 2018, Dilon Technologies acquired CoPilot VL. It helped in designing, manufacturing, and commercialising innovative medical imaging devices.
Surge in the usage of the laryngoscopes
Increase in the development of disposable blade laryngoscopes to reduce the cross-contamination issues and decrease in the number of the soft tissue injury drive the growth of the laryngoscopes market.
