Global Disposable Medical Sensors Market Receives Impetus from Need for Safe, Convenient Therapeutic Devices

Transparency Market Research Report Added "Disposable Medical Sensors Market" to its database.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/16/2016 -- Transparency Market Research presents a new market study on the global disposable medical sensors market for the 2015-2023 period. The report, titled "Disposable Medical Sensors Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 – 2023," provides a 360-degree overview of the said market for technological developments and competitive considerations across North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa for the aforementioned forecast period.

In the bid to offer top-notch quality medical devices, manufacturers of these products are consistently aiming for convenience, safety, and sterility in these devices. Due to the significance of the sterility of medical devices, disposable medical devices have been vitally important. With the advent of sensor technology, disposable medical sensors have been devised that can sense and record alterations in electrical properties of medical devices.

Over the last couple of years, wearable, wireless, and disposable medical sensors have been popular with telecommunication agencies that work closely with healthcare. In May 2012, the protected broadband spectrum was removed from wireless medical sensors due to a move by The Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This spectrum, termed as the medical body area networks (MBAN), was eliminated due to suggestions from GE Healthcare and Philips Healthcare. In splitting of the broadband spectrum for disposable devices, FCC has allocated 40MHz frequency spectrum to be utilized by MBAN devices on a shared and secondary basis.

The report says that the increasing demand for sensors for diagnostic purposes in home and clinic settings is majorly driving the global disposable medical sensors market. The rising prevalence of chronic diseases, wherein patients require long-term medical care, and hospital-related infections is the reason for the same. To cater to these needs, manufacturers of medical sensors are developing new products that are suitable for a large number of end uses. For instance, MEMSIC Inc. introduced the MFC2030 bi-directional flow sensor for anesthesia, process control, and analytical instrument applications in July 2015. In October 2014, hi-tech liquid flow sensors were devised by Sensirion AG. Not only are these devices intelligent, cost-effective, and disposable, but they also exhibit liquid flow measurement capability inside a medical tube such as a catheter in real time.

Medical sensors are utilized across a host of applications, which include digital thermometers, breath analyzers, spirometers, respiration pulse oximeters, digital blood pressure meters, peak flow meters, and sleep apnea monitoring devices. These sensors are used for therapeutic applications as well, such as anesthetic equipment and respiration equipment in intensive care units, heart-lung machines, as well as in infusion and transfusion pumps. Therapeutic sleep apnea devices and dialysis equipment also utilize disposable sensors for accuracy in monitoring.

The top players in the global disposable medical sensors market are Sensirion AG, Measurement Specialties, Smiths Medical, Freescale Semiconductor Inc., GE Healthcare, Honeywell International Inc., Coividien plc, MEMSIC Inc., ST Microeectronics, Philips Healthcare, Medtronic, Analog Devices, and Given Imaging Ltd.
