Koninklijke Philips N.V. and ResMed are the Prominent Players in the Ventilators Market

A ventilator, breathing machine, or respirator is a machine that assists with breathing. It is mainly used in hospitals to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), sleep apnea, acute lung injury, and hypoxemia. Over the years, the ventilators market has evolved significantly due to technological advancements, such as developing advanced portable ventilators and improvements in the sensor technologies used in ventilators. The increasing number of preterm births, rapid growth in the geriatric population, rising prevalence of respiratory diseases, rising number of ICU beds, and rising number of COVID-19 patients are expected to drive growth in the ventilators market during the forecast period. The emergence of home healthcare has opened new avenues for the ventilators market. Convenience and comfort in the home care environment, coupled with cost advantages, are the other major factors driving growth in the home healthcare market for ventilators.

The Ventilators market is projected to reach USD 1.9 billion in 2026 from USD 1.4 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period.
