Smoke evacuation system is designed to evacuate the smoke aerosols and gases generated during the use of lasers and electrosurgical units at the surgical site, using a high flow vacuum source. Surgical smoke evacuation system consists of components such as a vacuum, filter system, disposable hose, and a control panel. Smoke evacuation system plays a vital role in surgical procedure to evacuate noxious odor that arises while dissecting tissue and to remove harmful chemical particles capable of passing through surgical masks. Failure of channeling out the smoke can result in various health problems such as respiratory distress, eye irritation, and nausea.
Top Driver: Rising Surgical Procedure and Added Benefits of Smoke Evacuation System
The key factors driving the smoke evacuation system are the surging demand for cosmetic and laparoscopic procedure, expansion in target patient population, and government initiatives to provide safe and secure healthcare environment for both patient and medical professionals. Also, the health risk associated with the smoke concerning healthcare professionals, as the smoke can produce myriad of non-acute health complications that might not trace back to their exposure to surgical smoke is one of the significant factors driving the market. In addition, the benefits associated with the smoke evacuation system like enhanced visibility during noninvasive and laser procedure, and reduced build-up on lenses of the camera are anticipated to foster the market during the forecast period.
Rising Prevalence of Chronic Diseases to Benefit Laparoscopic Surgeries Segment
Based on the application, the smoke evacuation system market has been segmented into laparoscopic surgeries, orthopedic surgeries, medical aesthetic surgeries, and others. Laparoscopic surgeries accounts for the largest market share and is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Significant factors such as growing acceptance of smoke evacuators for surgical interventions for ulcerative colitis, obesity, and Crohn’s disease are the major driver of this segment. In addition, the benefits of laparoscopic surgeries such as less pain, a shorter recovery, and less scarring when compared to traditional open surgery is likely support the growth of this segment. Also, advancement in technology, improved healthcare facilities, and rising prevalence of chronic diseases are expected to foster the smoke evacuation system market.
Based on the product, the market is segmented into smoke evacuation pencil and wands, smoke evacuation system, smoke evacuation tubing, and others. Smoke evacuation pencil and wands are anticipated to grow in the near future attributing to the factors such as growing adoption among healthcare facilities and its significant usage due to its benefits of creating safer and healthier environments for surgeons and other healthcare professionals.
Based on the end-user, the market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and others. The surging demand for electrosurgical devices expected to stimulate the growth of hospital segment.
Rising Cases of Laparoscopic and Cosmetic Surgeries to Benefit North America Market
North America is anticipated to retain its dominant share in the smoke evacuation system market throughout the forecast period. The initiatives and awareness spread by regulatory bodies such as National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is likely to drive the market in this region. NIOSH described surgical smoke as a significant risk factor and has created awareness to reduce the surgical smoke. In addition, the rising cases of cosmetic and laparoscopic surgeries in the country such as the United states. Nearly 15 million laparoscopic procedures are performed every year, globally and the U.S alone contributes to 32% of the number. Moreover, rising prevalence of chronic diseases and technological advancements are other factors responsible for growth of smoke evacuation system in North America.
Players to Focus on Strategic Acquisition and Market Penetration
The significant players operating in the smoke evacuation system market are CONMED Corporation, Medtronic Plc, Olympus, Ethicon, Erbe Elektromedizin GmbH, KLS Martin, Stryker Corporation, I.C Medical, Symmetry Surgical Inc.
Palliare: In July 2020, Palliare has received clearance from the FDA for its patented EVA15 insufflator and smoke evacuation system. EVA15 is a novel insufflator designed to meet the demanding insufflation requirements of endoscopic and robotic surgery, coupled with integrated surgical smoke evacuation capability, filtering the hazardous smoke particles produced during laparoscopic surgery and removing them from the operating room. The built-in smoke evacuation capability also allows EVA15 to reduce device footprint in the OR by 50 percent while significantly reducing the cost of each procedure.
CONMED: In February 2019, CONMED Corporation announced that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of privately-held Buffalo Filter LLC (Buffalo Filter) from Filtration Group. Buffalo Filter is the market leader in surgical smoke evacuation technologies. The company’s comprehensive product portfolio includes smoke evacuation pencils, smoke evacuators, and laparoscopic solutions.
