Medical Gases Market Size to Reach US$ 20.9 Billion by 2028

  • Industry Overview of Medical Gases Market

    Medical gases are gases used in healthcare facilities for diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical applications. These gases play a vital role in providing essential support to patients and healthcare professionals. Commonly used medical gases include oxygen, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, helium, and medical air. Each gas serves a specific purpose, such as oxygen being used to support respiratory function, nitrous oxide as an analgesic and anesthetic agent, and carbon dioxide for insufflation during laparoscopic surgery. Medical gases are produced, stored, and administered in compliance with strict regulatory standards to ensure their purity, quality, and safe usage in medical settings. They are typically delivered through specialized gas supply systems, such as cylinders or pipeline networks, and are integral to delivering quality healthcare services.

    How Big Is the Medical Gases Market?

    The global medical gases market size reached US$ 13.6 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 20.9 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 7.3% during 2023-2028.

    Global Industry Trends and Drivers:

    The medical gases market is influenced by several industry trends and drivers. One significant trend is the increasing prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases and the growing aging population. Conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and respiratory distress syndrome require medical gases like oxygen for respiratory support. As the global population ages and respiratory diseases become more prevalent, the demand for medical gases is expected to rise. Another driver is the growing number of surgical procedures and advancements in medical technology. Medical gases play a critical role in anesthesia and surgical procedures, providing analgesia and maintaining patient safety during surgery. With the continuous development of minimally invasive surgeries and the expansion of healthcare infrastructure, the demand for medical gases is increasing.

    Moreover, the focus on patient safety and the need for stringent regulations are driving the market. Medical gases must meet strict quality standards to ensure patient well-being. Regulatory bodies and healthcare organizations are implementing guidelines and standards to maintain the purity, handling, and storage of medical gases, driving the market for compliant products and services.
