Rise in Demand from Hospitals Spurring Growth

Medical gases and equipment being an integral part of the hospitals industry are witnessing significant surge in demand with the increase in number of hospitals across the globe.

Various medical equipment such as flowmeters, cryogenic products, regulators, medical air compressors, and others, are often required to deliver treatment to patients requiring critical care. These equipment are therefore mainstay in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) to Operation Theatres (OTs) across hospitals.

Furthermore, the rising investment of government funds in healthcare is spurring the growth of the market. For instance, the healthcare sector in India is expanding at a brisk pace, especially since the government has allowed foreign direct investment (FDI) in the industry. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in Vietnam for every 1% increase in per capita GDP, public spending on healthcare has surged by 1.7% since 2000.

These factors are indicative of the expansion of the healthcare sector and rising demand for advanced services. Fact.MR identifies this trend as a chief driver of the market for medical gases and equipment.
