Growing healthcare expenditure, better medical facilities, and rapid technological advancements have helped increase the demand for medical oxygen systems worldwide. Elderly people have a less pulmonary reserve and reduced cough strength due to anatomic changes and muscle loss. Hence, they are at a high risk of developing lung disorders and various breathing problems. This has further led to increased demand for medical oxygen systems over the last few years.

Demand for medical oxygen systems has been directly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, which is a resultant of a significant shortage of medical ventilators globally. To overcome this shortage, biomedical engineers and scientists have developed makeshift devices to mimic the basic functionality of ventilators using existing devices such as oxygen concentrators, anaesthesia machines, and manual resuscitators.

Furthermore, the U.S. FDA has allowed the usage of these oxygen concentrators under the Emergency Use Authorization scheme, which will significantly increase demand for medical oxygen systems over the coming quarters.

As most of the critical cases of Covid-19 require some form of artificial ventilation, demand for wall-mounted oxygen concentrators, and piped/canned oxygen is witnessing a significant rise. The same is evident in the recent movements undertaken by market participants.

For instance, Linde, one of the largest medical gas companies, is rapidly increasing its oxygen production. The company is also working closely with providers across the globe to anticipate rising demand and ramp up deliveries. 

On account of these factors, demand for medical oxygen systems is expected to surge further over the assessment period.

What are the Lucrative Opportunities on Offer for Medical Oxygen System Manufactures?
