General anesthesia refers to the state produced when a patient receives medications for amnesia, muscle paralysis,sedation, and analgesia. Anaesthetists, physician assistants or nurse anaesthetists administer these drugs. An anesthetized patient can be thought of as being in a controlled, reversible state of unconsciousness. Anesthesia allows a patient to endure surgical procedures that would otherwise cause intolerable pain, potentiate extreme physiologic exacerbations, and result in unpleasant memories. Drugs given to induce general anaesthesia can be either as gases or vapours (inhalational anaesthetics), or as injections (intravenous anaesthetics or even intramuscular). The various advantages of general anesthesia include the following:

--> Can be used in cases of sensitivity to local anesthetic agent
--> Can be administered without moving the patient from the supine position
--> Allows proper muscle relaxation for prolonged periods of time
--> Facilitates complete control of the airway, breathing, and circulation

Market Dynamics

Growth of the global general anaesthesia drugs market is mainly driven by growing volume of surgical procedures including orthopedic, general surgeries, cardiac, and others. Moreover, growth in healthcare facilities in emerging economies and advancements in the anesthesia drug delivery methods, such as jet injection, inhalation and computer controlled anesthesia delivery systems will further encourage the general anesthesia drugs industry. However, side effects associated with anesthesia drugs such as nausea, vomiting, allergy, and complications during surgical procedures restraint the growth of the market. Further factors which inhibit the growth of the general anesthesia drugs market are lack of skilled anesthesiologist, inadequate insurance coverage and high prices of these drugs.

Market Segmentation

The global general anesthesia drugs market has been segmented on the basis of drugs and route of administration. The various drugs include Sevoflurane, Propofol, Desflurane, isoflurane, Dexmedetomidine, Isoflurane, Midazolam and others. In terms of route of administration, the market is classified into intravenous and inhalational. Greater patient compliance and less number of side effects as compared to inhalational anesthetics are driving the growth of the intravenous market.

Regional/Geographic Analysis

By geography, in the year 2016, North America held the maximum share of general anesthesia drugs market and is further projected to continue its dominance during the forecast period.
