A Pulse Oximeter is a small, lightweight & noninvasive device used to monitor the oxygen level in the body. Usually attached to fingertips, this device assesses the pulse rate & displays the oxygen percentage and the current pulse rate. The research report titled Middle East & Africa Pulse Oximeter Market Outlook, 2026 by Bonafide Research categorizes the market to forecast the revenues and analyze the trends in each of the following segments: based on product type (Fingertip, Handheld & Others), based on end-users (Hospital and Health Care Facilities & Home Care), based on countries & major companies. The Pulse Oximeter market has been revamped considering the Covid-19 impact. The overall coronary obstructive pulmonary disease prevalence in the Middle East is 3.6%, wherein the UAE had an overall prevalence of 1.9% in 2020. Such diseases are being the major market drivers in the region, which accounted for a value of USD 0.14 Billion in 2015. The growth of the Middle East and Africa pulse oximeters market is attributed to key driving factors such as the rising prevalence of respiratory diseases, an outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the increasing incidence of congenital heart disease. The market is expected to grow with an anticipated CAGR of 8%. However, inaccuracies in pulse oximeter readings are expected to obstruct market growth to a certain extent. The regional market is primarily driven by the ongoing research on technological advancements and the increasing cases of asthma. The handheld oximeter accounted for over half of the market in 2015 and showing a declining trend ever since. Tobacco smoking is a significant factor contributing to the growing prevalence of respiratory diseases in the region. Increased exposure to dust & sandstorms is the other reason for the high incidence rates of pulmonary diseases. The rising occurrence of these respiratory diseases will lead to an increased demand for pulse oximeters. Fingertip pulse oximeters are considered affordable and effective, as they can help track and store a patient’s oxygen level readings. The fingertip oximeter segment is to grow immensely in the region, with an anticipated CAGR of higher than 12%. With an increase in the aging population, the incidence of chronic pulmonary and cardiac conditions is expected to rise. This is anticipated to augment the need for monitoring devices, such as pulse oximeters, in-home settings. The home care segment witnessed an exceptional growth of over 25% CAGR in the period 2015-2020. Spot-checking is an effective way for patients suffering from COPD and CHD. There has been a rise in the use of pulse oximeter devices at hospitals during the Covid-19 pandemic. The hospital & health care segment in the region is expected to grow to over a market of USD 0.20 Billion by the end of the forecasted period. In the region, Saudi Arabia & UAE together contribute to an approx. of 30%. Saudi Arabia is a major importer of medical devices and also has an increase in medical tourism for better management of chronic diseases. As a result of this, the number of healthcare centers is likely to increase. Moreover, many firms have been setting up centers in the country for the treatment of chronic respiratory diseases. In the United Arab Emirates, every sixth person has asthma. These high incidences of asthma across the country are anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunities for its pulse oximeter market in the coming years. South Africa remains a potential market due to the high prevalence of respiratory disorders. These factors are significantly contributing to the recent increase in non-communicable diseases, thereby propelling market growth in the country. Key industry players are undertaking other major initiatives, such as licensing agreements and strategic partnerships, to strengthen their market presence. The market leaders are introducing new products with additional features to sustain them in the competitive market. The Koninklijke Philips NV & CASMED (Edwards Lifesciences Corporation) together accounted for slightly higher than 10% of the total global market share. Other major players are Covidien (Medtroni PLCc), Nihon Kohden Corporation, Smiths Medical International, Welch Allyn INC, Spacelabs Healthcare, Meditech, GE Healthcare, etc. CONSIDERED IN THE REPORT • Geography: Middle East & Africa • Base year: 2020 • Historical year: 2015 • Forecasted year: 2026 REGIONS COVERED: • Middle East & Africa • UAE • Saudi Arabia • South Africa ASPECTS COVERED IN THE REPORT • Market Size by Value for the period (2015-2026F) • Market Share by Product type (Fingertip, Handheld & Others) • Market Share by End User (Hospital and Health Care Facilities & Home Care) • Market Share by Country • Market Share by Company
