Market analysis in brief
In 2021, the blood warmer market showed steady growth, reaching approximately US$ 900 million in value. According to industry forecasts, the market is expected to grow at a healthy rate of over 8% by 2030. North America leads the blood warmer market, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. The growth of this global market can be attributed to technological advancements, increased adoption of portable blood warmers, and increasing awareness of the benefits of blood warmers among healthcare professionals.
Key findings of the report
- Market revenue exceeded $900 million in 2021.
- The increase in surgical procedures drives the use of blood warmers in medical facilities and surgical centers.
- The growing demand for intravenous blood warmers contributes significantly to the growth of the market.
- North America remains at the forefront of the blood warmer market.
- New launches and collaborations between key players are the preferred growth strategies.
- Increase in the number of surgeries and trauma cases
The exponential increase in the number of surgeries and trauma cases worldwide is a significant driver of the blood warmers market. Factors such as the adoption of dialysis solutions at different stages of disease complexity and road traffic injuries contribute to this increase. Dialysis machines, which are widely used in the treatment of kidney diseases, have fueled the demand for blood warming equipment. In addition, surgical procedures can cause hypothermia, leading to an increased need for blood warmers to maintain patients’ body temperatures and improve patient outcomes.
- Growing demand for IV Systems
The increasing use of blood warmers for intraoperative infusions has led to an increased demand for intravenous systems. These systems reduce the risk of unwanted peri-operative hypothermia during surgical procedures. Prevalence of chronic diseases that affect kidney health also affects the use of intravenous systems, further contributing to the growth of the global blood warmers market.
- High equipment costs, strict regulations and availability of alternatives
The high cost of blood-warming devices may hinder their adoption, especially in countries with limited healthcare budgets. Additionally, the strict regulatory guidelines and approvals required for these devices can be a laborious and time-consuming process. Additionally, alternative solutions such as warm water baths may limit the use of blood warming devices, posing challenges to market growth.
Growth opportunities across regions
- North America reigns supreme
North America is expected to witness significant growth in the blood warmer market. Rising health care spending, strong economic growth and a high GDP per capita contribute to this growth. The United States, in particular, is projected to dominate the North American market. Emergency department visits and prevalence of chronic diseases in the region are important factors driving the demand for blood warmers.
