Global Medical Oxygen Concentrator Market Overview

A medical oxygen concentrator acts as a healthcare device for providing oxygen to patients suffering from respiratory disorders and related ailments. The medical oxygen concentrator comes equipped with sieve beds and filters that help in bisecting the nitrogen and oxygen from the air present in the surroundings, thereby eradicating the nitrogen constituents. Once the air is purified and the nitrogen element is eliminated from the air, it is ready for disposal to the dedicated patients through a nasal cannula or an oxygen mask. The concentrators can purify as much as 95% of the air it captures from the surroundings thereby ensuring that the final oxygen delivered to the patient is not contaminated. Even though they act as a life savior for patients suffering from respiratory ailments, they are only meant for patients with fewer complexities. However, in severe respiratory situations, it becomes crucial to receive 99% oxygen content which may exceed the limit of an oxygen concentrator, rendering it ineffective.

 

Global Medical Oxygen Concentrator Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Growth in out-of-pocket spending in the healthcare sector has been driving the demand for the global medical oxygen concentrator market

According to the WHO report on Global Spending 2020, over the last decade, government health spending, as well as out-of-pocket spending (OOPS) per capita, have risen sharply in many countries around the world. The rise in out-of-pocket spending shows that a patient's out-of-pocket expenses are increasing and that medical insurance plays no role in providing financial assistance. Due to the presence of insurance companies and free healthcare, out-of-pocket spending has accounted for over one-third of total health spending in all nations excluding high-income countries. In 2018. Out-of-pocket spending accounted for more than 41% of total health expenditure in low-income nations, with 42% and 36% in lower-middle and upper-middle-income nations, respectively. The increased OOPS spending has had a direct impact on the demand for oxygen concentrators in low- and middle-income nations, which have been severely impacted by pollution levels. As a result, the global medical oxygen concentrator market has grown due to increased demand.

The rising prevalence of respiratory disorders around the world have been fuelling the growth of the global medical oxygen concentrator market

The rising prevalence of respiratory diseases has contributed to the demand for medical oxygen concentrators. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a well-known respiratory condition in which the airflow vessels in the lungs shrink, decreasing the amount of oxygen given to the circulating blood in the body. According to a report published by the NCBI, more than 3.2 million people died of COPD in 2017, with a global mortality rate of 5.7%. Over 90% of COPD-related deaths, according to one estimate, occur in low- and middle-income nations. The oxygen concentrator is a life-saving medical device for such patients as they are more portable and easier to use than other oxygen devices available in the market; thus, they prove to be more useful in such conditions. These are a few factors that are contributing to the growth of the global medical oxygen concentrator around the world.

Restraints

As the need for ventilators grows, so do the costs of development.

COVID-19's rising prevalence has increased the number of cases around the world, contributing to a rise in the number of patients requiring advanced care. Many countries have turned to medical oxygen concentrators as a last resort alternative due to a scarcity of ventilators. As a result, medical device companies have been working on producing medical oxygen concentrators with enhanced purification capacity. However, this has increased the expense of developing such products, compelling many companies to change their business strategies, stifling the growth of medical oxygen concentrators.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Medical Oxygen Concentrators Market

Except for pharmaceuticals and healthcare, the coronavirus outbreak has affected almost every other industry across the globe. The pandemic has not only resulted in driving the medical oxygen concentrator but has also impacted the overall structure of this device. Oxygen concentrators are known to supply oxygen to people who have a blood oxygen level of 90% or less. A growing number of minor cases around the world have shown the equipment to be a lifesaver. As a result, the demand for such devices has risen drastically over the past year. Additionally, the varied priorities and less attention toward the overall medical structure of the various countries have been driving the growth of the global medical oxygen concentrator market as the government is running short of medical equipment to cater to the demand of the general public.

Global Medical Oxygen Concentrators Market- By Product Type

Based on product type, the global medical oxygen concentrator market can be bifurcated into portable oxygen concentrators and stationary oxygen concentrators. In the year 2020, the portable oxygen concentrator category accounted for the largest share and is expected to maintain its dominance even during the forecast period. The growth of such concentrators in the global medical oxygen concentrators market has been directly influenced by the mobility and easier user experience that the device offers. In comparison to stationary devices, the gadgets have been modified to meet the needs of the end-user, allowing them to have a good night's sleep and providing easier access to the gadget wherever they are needed.

Global Medical Oxygen Concentrators Market- By Technology

Based on types, the global medical oxygen concentrator market has been segmented into- continuous flow and pulse flow. The continuous flow medical oxygen concentrator held the larger share in the market in 2020 and it is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. With the rising severity of respiratory diseases, the demand for continuous oxygen supply becomes crucial for the patients. Even though the device becomes heavier with this technology making it difficult to travel with it, the ease of getting oxygen helps the patient improve their lives, which in turn contributes to the growth of the global medical oxygen concentrator market.

Global Medical Oxygen Concentrator market- By Region

Based on region, the global medical oxygen concentrator market is grouped into North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. North America accounted for the largest market share in the global medical oxygen concentrator market in 2020. Due to the rising prevalence of the geriatric population in the region, accompanied by the rising demand for healthcare equipment and concentrators for being the worst COVID-affected region in the world, the demand for medical oxygen concentrator in the region has been witnessing substantial growth rates. Consequently, the region is expected to witness more demand for medical oxygen concentrators, thereby driving the global medical oxygen concentrator market.
