Players in the blood gas analyzers market adopted organic (new product launch) as well as inorganic growth strategies (acquisitions and agreements) to increase their market shares. New product launch was the most prominent growth strategy adopted by market players between 2013 and 2016; it accounted for a share of 23.5% of the total number of strategic developments undertaken by market players in this period.

Companies such as Roche Diagnostics Limited, Nova Biomedical, Abbott Laboratories, and OPTI Medical Systems, Inc. adopted the strategy of new product launch to develop novel blood gas analyzers, strengthen their product portfolios, and address the demands of their customers. In June 2016, Roche Diagnostics launched its blood gas learning application, namely, Blood Gas Learn Your ABGs. The new app helps in learning and interpreting arterial blood gases. This enabled the company to enhance its market visibility. Similarly, Nova launched Stat Profile Prime, a blood gas analyzer, in May 2014. This testing system can be combined with Nova’s zero maintenance cartridge technology, which gives faster and accurate results. The launch of this product helped the company to expand its product offerings in the point-of-care testing market.
