Growing Deployment of ECMO Machines for Other Cardiac and Respiratory Conditions to Propel Industry Expansion

These machines can serve several significant roles in many conditions, which were relatively underutilized in the past. Primary graft dysfunction (PGD) is a critical condition requiring circulatory support. PGD is a syndrome of acute non-immune-mediated injury that usually occurs within 72 hours of lung and heart transplant and is the most common cause of early mortality. Recently, several studies have proven the positive outcome in PGD patients requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support.

According to a study published in March 2022 in the journal of the European Society for Organ Transplantation, VA-ECMO is a salvage therapy for heart transplant recipients with severe PGD in adults, especially in prior cardiac surgery history patients or relatively suboptimal recipient selection.

Using these machines in PGD cases led to a reduction in mortality rate, thereby increasing surgeons’ inclination toward early initiation of patients on these systems.


Surging Burden of Cardiovascular and Respiratory Diseases to Boost Market Growth

The rising prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is leading to the increased use of these machines. The prevalent cardiovascular diseases, including coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, rheumatic and congenital heart diseases impose a high disease burden on the healthcare system. These cardiovascular disorders are the leading cause of death worldwide.

According to the World Heart Federation, approximately 18.6 million people die annually from cardiovascular diseases. Furthermore, the growing prevalence of respiratory diseases, such as Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, COVID-19, and respiratory failure, is another major factor driving the demand for these machines.

  • For instance, according to an article published by the European Respiratory Society, approximately 4,600 lung transplant procedures are performed globally. North America and Europe account for around 80% of the total procedures.

Additionally, as per data published by American Lung Association, about 190,000 Americans are diagnosed with ARDS annually in the U.S. Such increasing prevalence of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases has boosted the demand for these machines and is driving the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine market growth.

Rising Technological Advancements Leading to Increased Product Adoption to Contribute to Market Growth

The miniaturization of the machine’s components, such as the oxygenator and hollow pumps, which are used in various surgeries, aids in transporting critical patients. Additionally, the introduction of technologically advanced components, such as improved rotary pumps, dual lumen cannula, innovative oxygenators, and new cannulation approaches, is anticipated to ease the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) machines. The advantages offered by new products compared with older devices include rapid priming time, lower priming volume, low blood flow resistance, and diminished plasma leakage, which may reduce platelet consumption and activation. Also, in advanced circuits, surface coatings that mimic the endothelial lining of blood vessels, reduce thrombogenicity, obviate the need for continuous anticoagulation, and reduce the incidence of related complications.

  • For instance, in July 2022, Inspira Technologies OXY B.H.N. Ltd. introduced the "Liby" System, an advanced life support system used to treat patients with life-threatening heart and lung failure.

Similar advancements and the introduction of new products are expected to drive market growth in the coming years.


High Cost of the Systems Challenges Affordability to Limit the Market Growth

The cost of an ECMO run includes machines cost, consumable costs, and cost of operator and other medical human resources. Among all, the machine’s cost puts significant pressure on the affordability of the healthcare system in developing nations and limits its adoption. For instance, in India, the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine costs around USD 35,000 to USD 48,000.

The cost of one system ranges between USD 152,000 to USD 170,000 in the U.S., and USD 35,500 to USD 47,300 in the U.K. The final cost of the procedure is at the higher end and the procedure use is impacted by limited healthcare expenditure in several nations.
