Global Smoke Evacuation Systems Market- Overview

A smoke evacuation system is a vacuum system used to remove or eliminate the smoke generated during electrosurgical procedureswhen lasers and electrosurgical units (ESUs) are used in the surgical environment. Evacuation of surgical site smoke is extremely necessary as it hinders the clear vision and creates disturbance with its peculiar smell. More importantly, surgical smoke contains toxic gases, vapors, and particulates, as well as viable, and non-viable surgical material. Repeated exposure to such content may increase the risk of adverse health effects.

Global Smoke Evacuation Systems Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Number Electrosurgical Procedures

The demand for electrosurgical procedures is rising at a very rapid rate. This kind of surgery involves an RF electrosurgical generator which is a heat-generating device and a major source of surgical smoke. Electrosurgery is a technique that is widely used in dermatology surgeries to achieve specific looks. With the abstract idea of beauty and rapid changes in beauty standards, more people are getting dermatologic surgeries to fit in. Consequently, the demand for smoke evacuation is increasing, along with the growth in electrosurgical procedures.

Lethal Side Effects of Clinical Smoke

There are several heat-generating medical devices, such as such as laser diodes, CT scanners, PCR devices, etc., used in the healthcare and medical sector which release huge amounts of toxic smoke and heat. An operational theatre filled with surgical smoke obstructs vision. Moreover, its high exposure can often lead to adverse health effects in patients as well as surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, etc. It also exposes nurses and doctors to headaches, coughs, burning throats, drowsiness, etc. Therefore, many hospitals and surgical centers use smoke evacuation systems to manage surgical smoke. This factor is estimated to fuel the global smoke evacuation systems market in the forecast period.

Restraints

Lack of Structured Regulatory Policies for Surgical Smoke Removal

Smoke evacuation proves to be very effective in removing the toxic smoke plumes from surgical sites. However, there is still no regulatory policy that mandates the use of such systems in surgical operations. As a result, only those healthcare facilities with higher budgets leverage smoke evacuation systems. This factor not only affects the market negatively but also puts the lives of the hospital's staff and patients at risk. Furthermore, the accommodation of smoke evacuation systems is still very limited in the emerging economies, which is also affecting the overall market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Smoke Evacuation Systems Market

The COVID-19 breakout has significantly affected almost all industry verticals.The medical community had to deal with the immediate consequences of the corona-virus's spread, which resulted in the postponement and delay of elective and other types of surgery, such as cosmetic surgeries. Due to this, the demand and adoption of smoke evacuation systems faced a severe slump and the market was affected negatively. Furthermore, the import and export restrictions also caused great troubles for the market as the manufacturing was completely halted.

Global Smoke Evacuation Systems Market - By Product

Based on products, the global smoke evacuation systems market is segmented into smoke-evac fusion products (shrouds), smoke evacuation pencils & wands, smoke evacuation filters, smoke evacuation systems, and smoke evacuation tubing & accessories. Among these segments, the smoke evacuation systems segment holds the largest market share. Many healthcare facilities use these systems for smoke detection and evacuation from surgical sites. These systems are available as portable or stationary units. It is estimated that smoke evacuation filters will grow significantly during the forecast period due to their high demand in healthcare facilities.

Global Smoke Evacuation Systems Market - By Application

Based on applications, the global smoke evacuation systems market is segmented into laparoscopic surgeries, medical aesthetics surgeries, orthopedic surgeries, and open general surgeries. Among these, the laparoscopic surgeries segment accounts for the largest market share. It has been estimated that over 13 million laparoscopic surgeries are performed every year worldwide. During such surgery, smoke is produced by energized dissecting devices which can hinder the vision of the surgeon and may cause severe complications. Therefore, the adoption of smoke evacuation systems is gaining significant traction during laparoscopic procedures worldwide.
