Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Devices Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the global hyperbaric oxygen therapy devices market is projected to value USD 265.32 million by 2027 from USD 186.54 million in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) devices are used for delivering pure oxygen (100%) to tissues in the body under higher atmospheric pressure. Atmospheric pressure in hyperbaric oxygen chambers or devices is increased from one to three times higher than normal atmospheric pressure, which fights bacteria and stimulates the release of a substance called growth factors and stem cells, promoting healing. 

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) improves the efficiency of leukocytes, particularly at the wound site, while also reducing the harmful effects of carbon monoxide (CO) and cyanide.


The widespread acceptance of this technology is one of the significant factors contributing to the growth of the global HBOT devices market.

The increasing incidence and prevalence of acute and chronic wounds, the widely available hyperbaric oxygen treatment systems, and the growing popularity of leisure and adventure activities are some of the key driving factors fueling the growth of the global hyperbaric oxygen therapy device market. In addition, the need for improved hyperbaric oxygen therapy equipment will increase as the number of cases of ischemic stroke rises. In developed countries, rising per capita income and improved government insurance policies are significant market drivers for hyperbaric oxygen treatment devices. In addition, the rising demand for multiplace HBOT devices for decompression sickness, the growing adoption of monoplace HBOT devices for wound healing, the rise in the incidences of gas embolism and carbon monoxide poisoning, and the growing investment by key players to develop advanced hyperbaric oxygen therapy devices are expected to propel the market forward.

The development of portable HBOT devices and the rising number of clinical trials supported by various institutions and players show that the market is progressing and contributing to its expansion. Technological advances in hyperbaric oxygen treatment equipment are likely to enhance demand in the next few years. The rise in demand for hyperbaric oxygen treatment equipment is mostly due to an increase in diabetic patients throughout the world. As a result, the market is expected to rise in the next few years. Furthermore, the industry is expected to grow as medical tourism grows. In addition, the rising incidence of obesity and diabetes is driving up the number of stroke cases, which is driving up product demand. A steady market expansion is predicted during the forecast period due to the increased efficacy and multi-functionality of hyperbaric oxygen treatment equipment. One of the causes expected to drive demand in the coming years is the rising use of hyperbaric oxygen treatment in wound healing and aesthetic operations. As the number of athletes grows, so does the need for this technology. This increase is due to increased commercial availability of monoplace systems, growing demand for monoplace HBOT devices for ease of handling, and reduced hospital gas supply requirements.


The high cost of therapy and reimbursement challenges are limiting the market's growth to some extent. Furthermore, few medical experts are still suspicious about HBOT devices being used in unapproved settings, restricting expansion. In addition, hyperbaric oxygen treatment complications such as seizure, low blood sugar, and short-term nearsightedness are expected to showcase a negative impact on market growth.

Additionally, a lack of knowledge about such technologies might be a stumbling block to the market's expansion. Another market restriction is the risk of side effects after medication. Changes in eyesight, sinus damage, oxygen toxicity, and other issues are among them. The market for hyperbaric oxygen therapy devices will be limited by the rising number of cases of middle ear injuries and eardrum rupture caused by changes in air pressure.

COVID-19 Impact on the global hyperbaric oxygen therapy devices market:

Factors such as the world's largest number of COVID-19 cases, the presence of a significant number of important local businesses capable of building up manufacturing of these devices, and increasing access to modern healthcare facilities are all driving demand for Hyperbaric oxygen therapy devices. Unfortunately, supportive treatments such as nasal cannula oxygen therapy, face mask oxygen therapy, noninvasive ventilation, mechanical ventilation, and even severe procedures like extracorporeal membrane oxygenation fail to improve oxygenation in certain individuals. As a result, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been recommended as a supportive treatment for COVID-19 patients who need to enhance their oxygenation. HBOT also reduces tissue inflammation in COVID-19 patients, decreasing the serious impacts of the cytokine storm.

Despite the lack of literature on HBOT in COVID-19 patients, HBOT has been recommended as a novel supportive treatment in COVID-19 patients due to the current need for further supportive therapy to enhance oxygenation. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic poses an unprecedented challenge to preserving patient access to HBOT. Still, it has enabled our tertiary wound care center to take quick yet carefully planned action to protect patient safety and optimize wound results. As a result, the market has tremendous growth during the pandemic and in the coming years.
