Medical Gas Market

Linde Group (Germany) and Air Liquide (France) are the Leading Players in the Medical Gases and Equipment Market

The global medical gases and equipment market is projected to reach USD 20.0 billion by 2023 from USD 14.0 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 6.2%. Rising aging population, increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) due to changing lifestyles, rapid urbanization, high prevalence of tobacco smoking, and increasing incidences of preterm births are expected to drive the growth of the medical gases and equipment market across the globe. Technological advancements, increasing demand for home care therapeutics, and market expansion in emerging countries across APAC and Latin America have opened new avenues for the medical gases and equipment market. However, there are certain challenges and restraints for the growth of this market, such as changes in medical gas calibration standards, global shortage of helium, declining federal reimbursements for respiratory therapies, and lack of awareness and untreated population.
