Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2017 -- Global Respiratory Monitoring Devices Market: Snapshot
Factors at the forefront of driving the demand in the global respiratory monitoring devices market are the rising number of cigarette smokers and a worsening air quality on account of rampant pollution. Further, a burgeoning geriatric population highly susceptible to lung diseases has also pushed up the demand in the market. Countering its growth, however, are the steep prices of newer, sophisticated respiratory monitoring devices, particularly advanced spirometry devices. They are much more expensive than peak flow meters or even pulse oximeters. This has somewhat dampened the demand for improved products leveraging better technologies. Further, dearth of skilled personnel to install advanced respiratory monitoring devices is also creating a gap between demand and supply in the market.
