Global Pulse Oximeter Market Segmentation
The global pulse oximeter market research report includes a detailed segmentation by products, end-users, and geography. The fingertip segment dominated the industry with a market share of over 35% share in 2019.

Fingertip pulse oximeters are easy to operate and compact. The segment is experiencing high demand as these devices are non-invasive, which makes them a preferred option for infants and neonates. Technological advancements in fingertip models will drive the segment. The inclusion of features such as Bluetooth, alarm systems, extensive memory, and easy transfer of data is increasing the efficiency. The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the demand for fingertip devices in the global population.

The device is preferred in hospitals in developing countries, wherein the number of patients is high. They are used by adults and children suffering from chronic illnesses such as congestive heart failure, anemia, lung cancer, heart attacks, respiratory conditions such as COPD, asthma, and sleep apnea.

In 2019, the hospital end-user segment accounted for over 56% in the pulse oximeter market shares. With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of hospital admissions with pneumonia and shortening of breath, and reduced oxygen levels in blood has increased. Hence, this has increased the demand for pulse oximeter in hospitals. Moreover, there is a growing demand for pulse oximeters in emergency care units and critical care units during operations to monitor SpO2. There is an increasing demand for standalone pulse oximeters in these settings to provide high-quality care to the patient population. In hospitals, there is a growing demand for standalone and handheld and fingertip pulse oximeters.

The clinic segment accounted for over 17% share in the market. The market is growing at a significant rate, with a CAGR during the forecast period.

North America represented the largest regional segment of the market in 2019. The increasing healthcare expenditure in the US and Canada and the growing prevalence of congenital heart defects (CHD) and other heart ailments and respiratory conditions are increasing the usage of pulse oximeters to check SpO2 and avoid heart stroke, thereby increasing the adoption of these devices. Moreover, in 2018, the number of adults with diagnosed chronic bronchitis was around 9 million. Also, the number of emergency department visits with emphysema and other chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as the primary diagnosis was over 9 lakh. This increasing patient population and rising admission in emergency departments have increased the demand for pulse oximeters by the patient population individually to monitor health status at home as well as the emergency department. There is a demand for pulse oximeter separate from multi-parameters to check accurate oxygen concentration in the blood to provide high-quality care to patients in emergency centers.
