EUROPEAN MARKETS FOR TEMPERATURE MANAGEMENT PRODUCTS FOR HOSPITALS

125 Pages | 34 Exhibits | 2009 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2013 Product Family: Market Reports




OVERVIEW:
Temperature management is a life-saving tool in hospital critical care units. Hypothermia occurs in 21% to 66% of all trauma patients, and it is estimated that 60% to 70% of the 15 million patients who undergo surgery with anesthesia annually in Europe become hypothermic; another 2 million patients per year become hypothermic due to accidents, adverse environmental conditions, or drowning.

In 2008, sales of temperature management products to hospitals in the European countries of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom (U.K.) totaled approximately $135.0 million; over the forecast period covered by this report, this market is expected to increase in value at a compound annual rate of 2.6%, with sales reaching an estimated $153.8 million in the year 2013.

This dynamic, new report from Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, markets, competitors, and opportunities in the area of critical care temperature management. Market segments covered in this report include ear/tympanic thermometers, electronic thermometers, liquid crystal/dot matrix thermometers and temporal artery thermometers as well as hyperthermia and hypothermia management devices. This report also provides an analysis of critical care in Europe as well as an overview of the healthcare markets of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the U.K.
