Anesthesia Video Laryngoscope Market Is Thriving According To New Report: Opportunities Rise For Stakeholders By 2026

Press Release

Videolaryngoscopy (VL) uses video camera technology to visualize airway structures and enable endotracheal intubation (ETI). Anesthesia video laryngoscope allows the practitioner to view the larynx indirectly, allowing for an ‘around-the-corner’ view. It is useful to assist intubation with optical stylets or flexible fiberoptic scopes by creating a tissue passage in a narrow airway. The device photograph laryngeal anatomy and upper airway, for instance to assess recurrent laryngeal nerve and vocal cord function. These devices are less fragile, easy to use, and offer supraglottic vantage point.

Market Dynamics

Increasing awareness among healthcare professionals regarding technologically advanced medical devices and equipment coupled with the advantages offered by these products over conventional laryngoscopes is expected to increase adoption rate of anesthesia video laryngoscope. Videolaryngoscopes make tracheal intubation easier in cases with previously failed intubation. It minimizes intubation difficulties, increase the overall success rates of intubation, and can be used to teach beginners. However, video laryngoscope lack the versatility of flexible bronchoscopic intubation, as these products cannot be introduced through nasal cavity.

Increasing demand for robot-assisted intubation is expected to bolster growth of the anesthesia video laryngoscope market

Advancements in intubation have led manufacturers to develop innovative products that offer greater accuracy and better support to healthcare professionals. Robot-assisted devices help to automate anesthesia care by reducing the pressure on anesthesiologists and improving overall patient care. Various manufacturers and researchers are studying the use of robotics in a wide range of laryngoscopy procedures. Robot-assisted intubation improves performance and safety in anesthesia delivery. Moreover, video images can be easily stored on servers and low-cost SD cards and can be transferred to other users, allowing for remote recording of activity and teaching.

McSleepy, da Vinci, and Kepler Intubation System are few examples of robotic assisted intubation. According to the Brazilian Journal of Anesthesiology study, 2014, video laryngoscopy with C-MAC (Karl Storz) improves the glottic view and increases the success rate of tracheal intubation in cases of difficult intubations with conventional direct laryngoscopes. The study reported that video laryngoscopes offer a potential solution that allows better imaging of the larynx as compared to conventional laryngoscopes.

However, the total cost of a video laryngoscopy is higher than that of a direct laryngoscope in terms of its battery, price, maintenance, training, hygiene, etc. Major players operating in the global anesthesia video laryngoscope market include Medtronic, Ambu A/S, Verathon Medical, Karl Storz, Teleflex, Daiken Medical Coopdech, Pentax-AWS, and Vyaire Medical.

Preference for anesthesia video laryngoscopes over direct laryngoscopes to augment the market growth

Increasing number of emergency departments and ICUs visits is expected to drive growth of the Anesthesia Video Laryngoscope Market. Majority of the emergency departments, clinics, and ambulatory centers perform out-of-operating room intubations to diagnose patients with breathing difficulties. Increasing number of healthcare centers is increasing adoption of anesthesia video laryngoscopes, in turn driving the market growth. Moreover, in obese patients, where intubation can be difficult, video laryngoscopes shows improvement in the visualization of the larynx with similar intubation times.

In pre-hospital settings, emergency care providers find it difficult to perform direct laryngoscopy in people with difficult airways due to severe neck injury, facial trauma, and oropharyngeal edema. In such cases, anesthesia video laryngoscopy is the efficient and safest method of visualization. Anesthesia video laryngoscopes can also be preferred choice for people with cervical spine injuries and spine immobility. These devices provide images that offer a better real-time view of the glottis in comparison to direct laryngoscopes.
