Blood gas and electrolyte analyzers are particularly used for testing blood in laboratories. The primary role of blood gas analyzers is to measure oxygenation and ventilation. Also, these analyzers measure electrolytes in blood, including calcium, chloride ions & bicarbonate ions and calcium.
The primary factors propelling the blood gas and electrolyte analyzers market are increasing patients in intensive care units (ICUs), operation rooms and emergency wards. Increased technical advancements in the market, such as automated and user friendly devices are being used to increase efficiency and accuracy in medical procedures. This factor is furthering the blood gas and electrolyte analyzers market.
Additionally, rising awareness, affordability of patients and increasing disposable income of people are expected to augment the blood gas and electrolyte analyzers market. The market can be sliced on the basis of types and geographies. It, on the basis of types, can be split into portable analyzers and bench-top analyzers.
Portable analyzers are the fastest growing type. This is on account of them being easily portable and occupying less space. Bench-top analyzers captured the largest share as a result of flexibility and ease of use.
Globally, the blood gas and electrolyte analyzers market can be divided into four major regions, including North America, Asia Pacific, Europe and ROW (rest of the world). North America leads the market. This is because of rapid increase in patients and improved and supportive healthcare infrastructure.
Increasing patients, development in the healthcare sector and patient awareness are expected to propel the blood gas and electrolyte analyzers market of Asia Pacific. Rising demand for blood gas and electrolyte analyzers in this region comes from developing economies, including China and India.
