Increase in number of elective surgeries globally empowered the futuristic growth.
Surgical smoke contains inorganic, small organic, and fragments of larger biological compounds. In addition, fragments of bacteria or viruses as well as particles and aerosols/bioaerosols are present. The chemical compounds include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are often gases even at room temperature with high vapor pressure. Therefore, the removal of VOCs from the operating theatre is very important. Some of these VOCs may pose a significant health hazard to medical personnel, especially with repeated exposure, safety precautions are indicated. Smoke evacuation systems are installed in operation rooms to remove this harmful surgical smoke. Elective procedures such as cosmetic, bariatric, and plastic surgical procedures are performed to improve patients’ aesthetic appearance. Approximately 130,000 people underwent primary bariatric surgery in the 2018. There is prevalence of obesity among people due to sedentary lifestyle, therefore people are preferring bariatric surgeries. Elective procedures utilize high-temperature or energy-intensive devices for tissue resection, lipid removal, or tissue charring, which generate significant amounts of surgical plume. Surgeons have reported a limited preference for the smoke evacuation process during elective procedure, however, due to the evolving regulatory scenarios and industrial guidelines related to the mandatory usage of evacuation systems during surgical procedures, surgeons are expected to utilize more affordable, safer, and effective products. Due to mandatory use of smoke evacuation systems during elective surgeries and rise in number of elective surgeries is creating opportunity for growth of smoke evacuation systems market.
Rising adoption by various end user is one of the major factors accelerating the market growth.
The end user for smoke evacuation systems are hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, cosmetic surgical centers, and others. Within these end users, hospitals are one such end user, wherein the use of smoke evacuations systems is increasing due to the increase in number of laparoscopic surgeries and medically aesthetic surgeries. Hospitals are focusing on upgrading their infrastructure and technology according to the guidelines given by the organizations.
