·3-min read

Dublin, Aug. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Pulse Oximeter Market Overview, 2020-26" report has been added to's offering.

In the year 2015, the global pulse oximeter market was valued at USD 1.65 Billion

The major factors for the growth of the pulse oximeters market apart from the rising cases of cardiovascular diseases are an increase in the geriatric population and the growing demand for portable monitoring devices.

The rising awareness regarding applications of pulse oximeters post the Covid-19 and the increasing prevalence of target diseases is expected to drive the market growth at an anticipated CAGR of 7%. The availability of new products and high unmet needs in developing and least-developed economies are expected to boost market growth over the forecast period.

The handheld segment dominated the market for the pulse oximeter and accounted for the largest revenue share of over half of the market share. The market is primarily driven by the fact that these oximeters are easy to use in case of emergencies. A rise in the number of stroke cases and surgeries is anticipated to boost market growth over the forecast period. Recording the highest anticipated growth rate, the fingertip segment is expected to grow at over 10%. Technological advancements in oximeters are expected to drive the segment.

The pulse oximeters are used in a medical setting, home as well as at the site of a medical emergency. The hospitals & health facilities segment is the highest revenue contributor to the global market, holding closely to 90% of the market share. These devices facilitate early detection of patients deteriorating health conditions; thereby, enabling speedy intervention and diagnosis of diseases.

Factors such as an increase in the geriatric population, a rise in inclination towards home monitoring, an upsurge in the incidence rate of chronic diseases, and a rise in awareness among patients about advanced pulse oximeters are expected to drive the market. The home care segment is expected to demonstrate the growth of 15.42% in the coming years. However, a lack of awareness about these devices in low- and middle-income economies is hampering market growth.
