Medical gases form a critical component of various long-term care treatments for several chronic conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and chronic respiratory diseases. Thus, the rising prevalence of lifestyle diseases is expected to play a pivotal role in the growth of the medical gases and equipment market in the coming years. Moreover, increase in burden of COVID-19 pandemic across the globe has further stimulated the demand for medical gas and equipment. Large patient pool suffering from COVID-19 and asthma augment the demand for medical gas equipment such as oxygen cylinders and concentrators. Thus, growing incidences of respiratory disorders is expected to offer immense growth opportunities for industry players in the future. Moreover, there are numerous domestic and international industry players offering wide range of medical gas and equipment which will further boost market expansion in the coming few years. Industry players are focused on developing lightweight and portable medical gas equipment. For instance, GCE Healthcare launched the GCE Healthcare wide range of products such as GCE portable oxygen concentrators, oxygen regulators, high purity gas control products and oxygen conserving devices which will foster growth of the market.
The global medical gas and equipment market has been segmented based on product, end-user and region. Based on product, the global medical gas and equipment market is categorized into medical gases and medical gas equipment. Medical gases segment is further sub-divided into pure medical gases and medical gas mixtures. Pure medical gases segment will witness significant growth in the coming years. Oxygen is a major medical gas required for all anesthetic techniques and is supplied to all the patients in ICUs for life support. Medical gas equipment segment is further categorized into vacuum systems/pumps, alarm systems, cylinders & accessories, hose assemblies & valve, outlets, regulators, flow meters, masks, manifolds, and medical air compressors. Medical cylinders and accessories segment will witness high growth in the coming few years owing to increase in demand from patient suffering with respiratory disorders such as asthma and COVID-19.
On the basis of end-user, the global medical gas and equipment market is categorized into hospitals, home healthcare, pharmaceuticals & biotechnology companies, emergency services, academic & research institutes. Hospitals segment accounted for dominant share of the market in 2019 owing to presence of large patient pool, large volume of surgeries performed, and high consumption of medical gases in the management of respiratory diseases, such as COPD, asthma and COVID-19.
