Report : Portable Oxygen Concentrators Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Product (Continuous Flow, Pulse Flow), Application (COPD, Asthma, Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Others), End User (Hospitals, Homecare Settings, Others), and Geography
According to our new market research study on "Portable Oxygen Concentrators Market to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis - by Product, Application, and End User," the market is expected to reach US$ 2,934.90 million by 2027 from US$ 1,547.33 million in 2019; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% from 2020 to 2027. The report highlights trends prevailing in the market, and the drivers and restraints pertaining to the market growth. The rising number of COVID-19 cases and increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases are the major factors fueling the market growth. However, high cost associated with the portable oxygen concentrators restrains the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Based on products, the portable oxygen concentrators market was segmented into continuous flow and pulse flow. In 2019, the continuous flow segment held a larger share in the market and is expected to continue to be a leading shareholder till 2027. This growth is attributed to the high penetration of portable oxygen concentrators with continuous flow, rapid technological advancements, and ongoing use of this equipment in oxygen therapies. On the other hand, the market for pulse flow is expected to grow at a higher CAGR owing to factors such as better efficiency, short-pulse delivery, and travel friendly as well as easy functionality. The pulse flow concentrators are more complex and advanced than that of the continuous flow oxygenators. As the pulse flow oxygen concentrators are smaller machines, these devices generate more modest volumes of oxygen.
The higher adoption of home health care products depending upon patient’s feasibility is the factor that is expected to drive the portable oxygen concentrator devices market during 2020–2027. The portable oxygen concentrator market is expected to grow with the greater adoption of home care products facilitating patient’s comfort. Portable oxygen concentrators dispense oxygen in the similar way as that of oxygen tanks. However, instead of the limited amount of pressurized oxygen that can be used through the oxygen tanks, the concentrators use a filtering system that takes ambient air in from around the patient, compress and modify it to medical-grade standards. The chronic respiratory disease patients, with supplemental oxygen requirement at home and during travel, usually prefer these portable concentrators due to the ease of use. Improved performance, lightweight nature, upfront costs, and unlimited oxygen supply are among the factors that make these devices ideal for home healthcare. Thus, the growing preference for home health products is expected to provide an impetus for the growth of the portable oxygen concentrators market during the forecast period.
