The Global Medical Gases and Equipment Market held a market value of USD 13.0 billion in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% over the forecast period. Medical gas is defined as the gas is manufactured, packaged, and used for administration to patients in diagnosis, anesthesia, and therapy. Medical gases are the life-saving element that provides direct influence in maintaining the life of patients. Medical gas equipment are the supply systems used by hospitals & clinics, academic & research institutions, pharmaceutical & biotechnology industries to create or distribute medical gases in the piping system.
Few of the market growth factors are globally growing geriatric population coupled with increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, the presence of favourable government initiatives such as industry-friendly safety, and rising demand for point of care products & home healthcare. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that, in the US, 6 in 10 adults have a chronic disease and 4 in 10 adults have two or more chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, chronic lung disease, stroke, diabetes, and chronic kidney disease (CKD)
