Region : Global | Report ID: FBI100842 | Status : Ongoing



Supraglottic airway devices is a set of medical devices that acts as a passageway, by keeping the upper airway open for oxygenation and administration of anesthetic gases and ventilation. Having replaced the traditional endotracheal intubation and face masks, the usage of supraglottic airway devices has increased over the last few decades and has become a fundamental tool in modern anesthesiology.

Supraglottic airway devices were initially used for simple procedures, but then became increasingly implemented in critical scenarios such as emergencies and in situations, where intubation is difficult. Benefits of supraglottic airway devices include higher speed & ease of insertion, lower autonomic impact, and less post-operative discomfort for the patients.

They also have advantages from the perspective of health economics by reducing the additional use of anesthetics, anti-emetics, and patient complications. The World Federation of Societies of Anesthesiologists (WFSA) estimates that every year, around 230 million major surgeries are carried worldwide, thus necessitating proper anesthesia procedures. The Supraglottic airway devices market is expected to undergo considerable growth during the forecast period due to the increasing prevalence of acute and chronic diseases, which often require anesthesia.

During surgical procedures, anesthesia has become a crucial factor as it reduces the level of pain. Due to the increasing prevalence of acute and chronic diseases such as cancers and other traumatic injuries like traumas, accidents, etc., one of the first lines of treatment is the surgical procedures, for which the patient undergoes anesthesia. This is responsible for driving the supraglottic airway devices market growth during the forecast period.

However, the adverse or negative effects associated with the supraglottic airway devices are the market restraining factors. Some of the complications include aspiration, airway traumas, compression of surrounding lingual, and mental nerves, which can lead to life-threatening conditions for the patients.
