Most of the companies have been shutdown their manufacturing operations in the country coupled with the government orders to temporarily suspend production to limit the coronavirus epidemics. However, the country’s healthcare infrastructure is under pressure due to the escalating demand for essential medical equipment, including ventilators, to treat patients with COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the UK government has been taking certain actions to meet the demand for ventilators.

To manage issues regarding the shortage of ventilators, the UK government plans to quickly buy thousands of ventilators from foreign countries, and work continuously with current manufacturers to accelerate the production capacity. The country asked several local and foreign manufacturers to support COVID-19 response. The UK has ordered 10,000 ventilators to the Dyson, which is known for hand dryers and vacuum cleaners. In addition, the country’s manufacturers are focusing on 3D printing technology to support the production of ventilators.

Manufacturers of aircraft and automobiles, including Airbus and Vauxhall, are planning to utilize 3D printing technology to develop ventilators parts for the treatment of patients with COVID-19. The major benefit of 3D printing is that it can be used rapidly for the production of customized parts. It can be produced much faster on a small scale as compared to conventional production methods. Therefore, it can be used to develop a comprehensive range of tools to fight against the coronavirus outbreak. UK government appealed to companies to support in this effort to develop more than 20,000 ventilators in as little as two weeks in a call.
The study on the effect of COVID-19 on UK ventilator industry is segmented into portable and intensive care ventilators. Portable ventilators have a significant demand for the treatment of patients with coronavirus. A consortium of UK manufacturers accelerates the production of ParaPac portable ventilator which is normally used in ambulances and developed by Smiths Group. Apart from Smiths Group, other consortium members include BAE Systems, Rolls Royce, Ultra Electronics, Thales, Ford, Airbus, among others. The rising output of currently approved designs by medical regulators is seen as the rapid way to get more machines onto NHS wards instead of depending on unproven new models. Increasing focus on large scale production of portable ventilators amid COVID-19 is supporting the demand for these ventilators in the country.
Some crucial manufacturers focusing on supplying ventilators to UK for the treatment of patients with COVID-19 include Smiths Group plc, Getinge AB, Medtronic plc, McLaren Services Ltd., and Dyson Ltd. McLaren Services Ltd., a manufacturer of automobile and accessories, is looking to the quick production of ventilators for COVID-19 patients. The team at McLaren is one of three consortiums engaged to tackle a huge shortage of ventilators in the country. Additionally, the UK government appealed other automobile companies, including Betley, Jaguar Land Rover, Honda, Ford, and Nissan to support in the development of ventilators in the country.
