Driver: Increased product availability

Healthcare providers are inclined to utilize evacuation/suction devices for removal of smoke/surgical plume from the operating room and surgical theatres. Moreover, various government agencies and industrial associations have recognized the clinical risk associated with surgical plume inhalation; that is expected to result in chronic medical conditions among patients and surgeons exposed to them. Thus, product manufacturers are increasingly focused on the development and commercialization of novel products that offer safe and effective smoke evacuation. A number of products have been launched in this market, including Buffalo Filter’s PlumePen Pro (April 2016), which offers users operational flexibility, ease of use, and optimal visualization capabilities. Another key product is the Zip pen, by Megadyne Medical Products (launched March 2015).

Furthermore, smoke evacuation platforms are increasingly being integrated with electrosurgical generators that are known to generate significant volumes of surgical plumes. This is expected to help in efficient space utilization and streamline the surgical workflow. Thus, increased market availability of technologically advanced products is poised to drive their market adoption during the study period.

North America accounted for the largest share of the smoke evacuation filter market in 2018

This report covers the smoke evacuation systems market across four major geographies—North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America commanded the largest share of the smoke evacuation systems market mainly due to factors such as the increase in the number of inpatient surgeries performed in the US, expansion in the target disease population, and wider acceptance and availability of relevant protocols and guidelines in the North America region.
