Respiratory Technology Market

Key Takeaways

Introduction

The research team has curated a set of six competitors within the American respiratory technology industry, with a specific focus on players that offer non-invasive ventilation solutions and/or applications/software that support the monitoring of respiratory conditions. Additionally, the research team has provided an estimate for the market size for non-invasive ventilation solutions in the United States, as well as an approximation for the digital respiratory apps and sensors industry in North America. The latter market valuation was included as an alternative for the size of the digital respiratory apps market in the United States due to a lack of publicly available data on the specific geography/sub-sector. This lack of data is likely due to both the relatively small size of the market overall, as well as because many competitors in the industry sell apps that are paired with sensors. While the findings of this research have been summarized directly below, a full explanation of the underlying research strategy and market size calculations is available within the Research Strategy section at the end of this brief.

US Non-Invasive Ventilation Solutions Market Size

  • The US non-invasive ventilation solutions market is currently valued at approximately $676 million, based on the size of the global non-invasive ventilator industry as well as the relative scale of the US region within the larger ventilator marketplace.
  • According to 360 Research Reports, the global non-invasive ventilation solutions industry generated $1.3007 billion in revenue as of 2020, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% to reach $1.3907 billion in size as of 2022.
  • These figures are corroborated by slightly dated reporting by Transparency Market Research, which sized the worldwide non-invasive ventilator industry at $1.5 billion as of 2019.
  • In parallel, the global ventilation solutions industry was valued at $1.4 billion in 2021 and was expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.6% to reach $1.5 billion as of 2022, according to Markets And Markets.
  • Notably, North America accounted for $812 million of the larger ventilation solutions marketplace in 2022 per Market Data Forecast, while the United States represented 90% of the North American ventilator market.
  • By combining the current size of the global non-invasive ventilator industry ($1.3907 billion) with the relative scale of the US region within the larger ventilator marketplace, the US non-invasive ventilation solutions can be estimated at $676 million. The full calculation for this estimate is available within the Research Strategy section at the end of this brief.
  • This market size, wherein the US and North America represent approximately half of the worldwide market for non-invasive ventilation solutions, is consistent with separate, qualitative reporting by Mordor Intelligence that "North America dominates the global non-invasive ventilators market."

North America Digital Respiratory Apps & Sensors Market Size

  • By leveraging the size of the global digital respiratory sensors and apps industry ($23.7 million) as well as the relative scale of the North American region within the larger digital respiratory devices market, the North America digital respiratory apps and sensors industry can be estimated at $12.9 million as of 2022. The full calculation for this estimate is available within the Research Strategy section at the end of this brief.
  • This market value, wherein North America represents approximately half of the worldwide market for digital respiratory sensors and apps, is consistent with separate, qualitative reporting by ReportLinker that "North America is currently the leading contributor to the global digital respiratory devices market."

Research Strategy

For this research on the respiratory technology industry, the research team leveraged the most reputable sources available in the public domain, including reports by market experts such as 360 Research Reports, Market Data Forecast, Markets And Markets and Statista. Specifically in the case of the market for US digital respiratory apps, it was determined that a credible value for this industry was unavailable in the public domain, either in a pre-compiled format or through triangulation. This is likely due to both the relatively small size of the market overall, as well as because many competitors in the industry sell apps that are paired with sensors. Following an exhaustive review of market research reports, credible media coverage of the industry and publications by market competitors, the research team expanded the market sizing to include apps and sensors, as well as to encompass the slightly larger region of North America. This approach was consistent with the recommendation that was suggested during the initial research period in the event that data was confirmed to be limited/unavailable. The calculation behind this market size, as well as the estimate for non-invasive ventilation solutions in the US, is as follows:

Calculation for US Non-Invasive Ventilation Solutions Market Size

Calculation for North America Digital Respiratory Apps & Sensors Market Size
  • The North America digital respiratory apps and sensors market = [the sensors and apps market size within the global digital respiratory devices industry of $12,600,000 as of 2019 * three years of projected growth (1.234^3)] * [the relative scale of the North America digital respiratory devices market within the current global digital respiratory devices industry of {$7,600,000 in 2019 * three years of projected growth (1.337^3)} for North America / {$13,100,000 in 2019 * three years of projected growth (1.366^3)} globally] = $12,914,371.
