Medical Gases and Equipment Market is Expected to Reach $16.67 bn by 2026

The Medical Gases and Equipment Market was valued at US $ 8.6 billion in the year 2018 and is estimated to reach US $ 16.67 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 8.62%.

Medical gases and equipment are used in hospitals during surgeries and ventilatory, operating rooms, intensive care unit (ICU) & emergency services. They are primarily used during the treatment of chronic respiratory disorders, laser surgery, sleep apnea, cryosurgery, and dental surgeries. Besides medical gases are used in several therapeutic, diagnostic, pharmaceutical manufacturing & research facilities. Licensing and marketing authorization from Regulatory Authorities is required to manufacture and distribute the medical gases.  

According to WHO, the global presence of chronic respiratory conditions is 20.8% in rural and 19.4% in the urban areas. An increase in the prevalence of respiratory conditions increases the demand for medical gas and equipment supply. There is a medical gas supply set up in most of the hospitals and healthcare facilities around the world, with different regulation policies and color-coding policies of gas pipes. There is an increase in the number of hospitals and health care facilities due to awareness and urbanization. Registration of newer health facilities is progressing rapidly, approximately 19,217 as estimated by WHO in 2017 worldwide. This might boost the medical gas and equipment supply-demand in the forecast period.

The key market drivers for medical gases and equipment include an increase in the use of medical gases in surgeries, growing geriatric population, an increase in the prevalence of respiratory disorders especially asthma & COPD, increasing hospitalization, emergency visits, surgeries, anesthesia, and ventilated cases.

The major market restraints are purity check of gases as impurities present in gases lead to infections, stringent regulatory process guidelines, and licensing approvals, inspecting medical gas supply units periodically and complexity of medical gas production, storage, and delivery. The major challenges are the modernization of medical gas standards and the means of supply in hospital & health-care facilities. Highly developing healthcare systems and investments in the development of patented technologies in medical gases and equipment will impact the market growth positively ion forecast period.

Major companies for Medical Gases and Equipment market include The Linde Group, Praxair Technology Inc, Atlas Copco, Amico Corporation, Air Products and Chemicals Inc. and Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation.
