Medical Suction Devices Market (2022 to 2027)

As per our research analysis, the global medical suction devices market size was worth USD 824.39 million in 2022. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% to reach USD 998.19 million by 2027.

Medical suction devices, also known as aspirators, are used to remove blocked airways caused by saliva, blood, vomit, or other body fluids so that a patient can breathe. Medical suction is important in pulmonary hygiene because it removes fluid from the airways and prevents microorganism formation. These suction devices are powered by mechanical hand pumps, batteries, or electricity. Hospital suction devices are used in a variety of medical settings. When a patient is unable to extract secretions from the body, medical suction devices are used. A suction device that has been specially modified can also be used for other treatments such as gastrointestinal, trauma, and pleural drainage. To prevent any cross-contamination, medical suction instruments must be disinfected after use. Suction regulators usually provide suction in many hospitals and other health facilities linked to a central medical vacuum supply by a pipeline system.


The rising prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases is a major factor driving the growth of the global medical suction devices market.

COPD increases airway secretions, which can obstruct the airway. This may necessitate routine suctioning, particularly in patients with artificial airways. As a result, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) affects about 65 million people globally and kills 3 million people each year, making it the third leading cause of death. Other respiratory diseases also demand the usage of medical suction devices. Asthma affected an estimated 262 million people in 2019 and killed 461000 people, according to the WHO. The vast majority of asthma-related deaths occur in low- and lower-middle-income countries, where underdiagnosis and undertreatment are common. For decades, acute lower respiratory tract infections have been among the top three causes of death and injuries among both children and adults, accounting for over 34 million episodes per year. As a result, many hospitals raise their demand for medical suction devices to accommodate the growing number of patients.

The growing number of surgical procedures is predicted to drive growth in the global medical suction devices market.

Medical suction devices play a vital role in surgery when used to extract blood or other debris from the operated region, allowing the surgeon to perform the procedure with a clear vision. Medical suction devices are primarily used in respiratory surgery, infant birth, and other procedures. A vacuum tube is attached to the baby's head during suction-aided delivery to direct the baby out. In an intracranial hemorrhage, surgical suction machines aid in removing blood when doing brain surgery. Per year, more than 230 million large surgeries are conducted worldwide. Vacuum extraction is used to deliver about 5 out of every 200 infants, while an intracerebral hemorrhage affects approximately 37,000 to 52,400 people per year. If this surgical number increases, so does the need for medical suction devices.

Technological advancements in these devices are also driving the global medical suction devices market.

Cutting-edge technologies make equipment smaller, heavier, and safer, while innovative technology allows tracking, diagnosing, and even logging a breeze. Compact and portable suction devices, which are now being developed, change the treatment process from conventional to home care. Portable medical suction devices are dependable, simple to use, and long-lasting, which increases the demand for medical suction devices, especially for home healthcare. The recently advanced blood suction system, based on a roller pump, prevents turbulences and has many individualized suction modes. Other specialized catheters include a hypercurved catheter and an oropharyngeal evacuation method, all of which have saved many lives. These technological advancements have increased the market for medical suction devices in the last decade and the near future.


Strict rules and guidelines to be followed during the manufacturing process of the suction pumps or devices and FDA approvals for the new products are some factors that restrain the medical suction devices market. Limited reimbursements are approved for home care is also hampering the market growth of medical suction devices. Lack of having complete knowledge about the suction devices among the people is another one that is hindering the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global medical suction devices market:

Millions of people were infected by the ongoing coronavirus. Hospital supplies are most required to treat these patients. Ventilation is one of the most important aspects of medical equipment used to treat a patient. In covid – 19, the market for all respiratory support equipment is rapidly increasing. A medical suction device is one of the equipment that remove secretions from the lungs. This has been an integral part of the treatment of coronavirus patients. Endotracheal suction is used regularly to clear fluid secretions from the lungs and airways of coronavirus patients. More serious coronavirus infections can cause pneumonia, causing the lungs to become inflamed and swell with fluid. According to research, 5% need admission to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and complementary treatments such as intubation and ventilation. The standard of treatment in the ICU is to provide each patient with a single suction device, which helps to reduce the risk of respiratory infections, chronic hypoxia, and secretion pooling in the lung. As a result, the market for medical suction devices is promptly increasing.

Many producers are assisting in increasing demand by launching new products or developing production units. Medela, for example, launched a new production line in the United States for its Vario 18 AC portable suction pumps, which provide suction and fluid removal during ventilator-assisted respiratory therapy. This manufacturing unit manufactures 10,000 suction pumps for COVID-19 patients to meet the rising demand for medical suction instruments. Furthermore, a recent analysis that looked at contamination rates for wall-mounted suction units found contamination on more than 30% of the devices. As a result, compact medical suction devices are recommended for COVID-19 treatment. Medela provides a range of portable suction pumps that provide a virus filter capable of eliminating cross-contamination from COVID-19 with a filtration efficiency greater than 99.99987%.

  • On 26 May 2019, Serres has launched a new vacuum source protector. It protects the hospital's central vacuum system and suction pump from contamination in the event of a fluid collection system breakdown. The vacuum source protector is intended to turn off the vacuum to keep suctioned fluids from accessing the vacuum line, thus avoiding expensive OR clean-up and downtime.
  • In March 2015, ZOLL medical company stated that its ResQCPR system had received approval for its pre-marketization by FDA. The system consists of two devices that are used in conjunction during CPR, especially in adult patients. The ResQCPR system is a suction pump that has a double grip handle. This system is invented to make better changes in the circulation of oxygenated blood to the heart and blood during CPR.
