The Global Medical Gas Market Size is expected to reach USD 25.6 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030. The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, and advantageous initiatives commenced by government organizations, are key factors driving the global medical gas market.


Market Overview

Pharmaceutical gaseous molecules that address medical requirements are known as a medical gas.  Medical gas is sterile and free of contaminants. A patient's life is directly affected by the medical gases used in hospitals because they are a vital component of life support. As part of a practice known as "gas therapy," medical gases are also inhaled by patients. Medical gases are used to synthesize, sterilize, or insulate procedures or products that can improve human health. There are numerous ways to deliver medical gases, including with the use of portable compressed air systems or with standalone oxygen cylinders. In May 2022, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), data updated explains that more than three billion people die because of CRDs, including asthma, occupational lung diseases, and pulmonary hypertension. The use of oxygen and other mixtures like lung gas mixtures is used to treat multiple respiratory disorders.

Driving Factors

The major driving factors for the global medical gas market growth include the demand for medical gases has been driven by the rise in the incidence of Chronic Respiratory Disorders (CRDs), including pulmonary hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and occupational lung diseases. Also, one of the main contributing factors to the increasing number of chronic disorders, such as diabetes and heart conditions is called obesity. Furthermore, the increase in home healthcare applications and the growing awareness of chronic diseases among patients and physicians both temper the market's growth during the forecast period. The increasing burden of respiratory diseases and favorable initiatives undertaken by government organizations also drive the market growth of medical gases.


Restraining Factors

The market's overall growth is restricted by changes in medical gas calibration standards and declining federal reimbursement for respiratory therapies. Moreover, the overall operating expense of medical gas equipment will also increase due to the expenses involved in educating specialists to use it effectively, which would restrain market expansion. Also, the oxygen industry with high maintenance costs is preventing the medical gas sector from expanding the market growth over the forecast period.


Market Segmentation

In 2021, the pure gases segment is holding the largest market share over the forecast period.

Based on the product, the medical gas market is bifurcated into pure gases, gas mixtures, and others. Among these, the pure gases segment is holding the market share during the forecast period owing to the increasing usage of oxygen gas, which serves as the foundation for all modern anesthetic procedures and as a form of life support for patients who are artificially ventilated. The segment's growth is primarily driven by an increase in hospitalization rates, the incidence of chronic diseases, and worldwide road deaths. For example, in 2021, according to the United Nations data, vehicle accidents have caused more than 50 million injuries and 1.3 million deaths annually worldwide. The need for oxygen therapy in various life care settings is developing significantly due to the increase in road accidents.

The gas mixtures segment is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period due to its increasing use in therapeutic and diagnostic applications.


In 2021, the therapeutic application segment is dominating the market growth over the forecast period.

Based on application, the medical gas market is classified into pharmaceutical manufacturing and research, diagnostic applications, therapeutic applications, and others. Among these, the therapeutic segment accounts for a major share of the medical gas market due to a broad range of medical gases used to regulate and treat several illness disorders. Also, the huge demand for medicinal products and the equipment required in hospitals may drive the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the high prevalence of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, which has increased the use of medical gases and equipment, is projected to be the faster-growing market segment over the forecast period.


In 2021, the hospital segment is leading the market over the forecast period.

Based on the end users, the global medical gas market is segmented into Hospitals, Ambulatory Surgical Centers, and Home Healthcare. Among these segments, the hospital segment held the largest market share due to all types of commercially available medical gases such as oxygen (O2), nitrogen (N2), medicinal air, carbon dioxide (CO2), and nitrogen protoxide (N2O), being widely used. Moreover, the high prevalence of medical procedures conducted globally and the application of medical gases in surgical procedures, intensive care, and emergency response also contribute to the segment's dominance.
