Assessing COVID-19 Impact: Manufacturers Ramp Up Production of Medical Ventilators in Response to Acute Shortages at Intensive Care Units – Future Market Insights

Companies active in the medical ventilator industry are focusing on R&D investments aiming at introduction of novel product offerings, pushing sales and profit margins.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / May 18, 2020 / The global pandemic of COVID-19 has turned medical equipment sector upside down within a matter of a few months. Medical ventilators have been at the forefront as lifesaving equipment for COVID-19 patients, but are currently facing immense pressure due to significant shortages at a global level. Coronavirus primarily affects the respiratory systems of patients, which fosters the demand for medical ventilators at intensive care units. The medical ventilators market is witnessing a rapid increase in the gap between supply and demand owing to skyrocketing demand amid supply chain disruptions.

A new Future Market Insights (FMI) study has projected the medical ventilators market value to expand at 8.7% CAGR during 2020 – 2030. Favorable initiatives taken up by the governments to boost production capacities will sustain market growth through the pandemic. The demand for low-cost, portable ventilator variants will generate lucrative opportunities, says the FMI report.

“The market is currently witnessing continued focus of stakeholders on the development of portable and mechanical medical ventilators. Investments of market leaders as well as start-ups in ventilator prototypes and innovative yet cost-efficient ventilator models uphold market prospects,” says the FMI Analyst.
