Global Medical Gases and Equipment Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global medical gases and equipment market size is expected to grow USD 29.77 billion by 2027 from USD 19.80 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period. 

Medical gases and pharmaceutical gases are specialized gases used for medical purposes, drug processing, and various biotechnology applications. Medical gases include pure gases and a mixture of gases for various medical processes. Gas equipment such as cylinders and masks are used to store and deliver gas.


The medical gases and equipment market is expected to be driven by the factors such as rising incidence of respiratory diseases and proliferation of chronic diseases, and technological advancements in the healthcare sector across the world. Also, the rising population and prevalence of tobacco consumption rapidly accelerate market growth. Moreover, the increasing incidence of preterm birth and surge in the geriatric population influences the market growth. In addition, in the recent past, the arrival of the global pandemic has increased the demand for home healthcare services are augmenting the market for medical gases and Equipment.

The rising geriatric population is primarily prone to developing chronic diseases, namely, diabetes, cancer, asthma, respiratory diseases, and cardiovascular diseases, which is expected to boost the market growth. The emerging countries in the APAC region are witnessing market expansion, and the rapid adoption of technologies is propelling the regional market growth. Increasing point of care services and supportive initiatives by the government and private organizations are most likely to encourage market growth. The rising prevalence of chronic respiratory disorders, the implementation of industry-friendly laws (such as the FDA Safety and Innovation Act), and increased biotechnology research are the important drivers that will propel the worldwide medical gases and equipment market throughout the forecast period.


The market growth can be restrained due to changes in medical gas calibration standards, the global shortage of helium, and declining federal reimbursements for respiratory therapies. The lack of comprehensive reimbursement schemes and helium scarcity are two factors that would limit market expansion throughout the forecast period. In addition, the Federal Helium Reserve in America would be shut down as a result of the Helium Privatization Act, and the resources would be turned over to the private sector.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global medical gases and equipment market:

The sudden burst of COVID 19 has affected millions of people's lives and affected the medical sector positively and negatively. The COVID 19 has moderately involved the medical gases and equipment market in overcoming the restrictions and creating opportunities for key players. The medical gases and equipment market continues to showcase steady growth at the time of the pandemic period. The demand is prepared to increase as the COVID 19 sudden burst stretches its halt worldwide. Unless and until a pharmacological treatment is available for COVID 19, ventilators remain an essential preference for patients who need emergency care. The majority of the governments ensure industrial gas manufacturers supply gas for medical usage in meeting the huge demand because of COVID 19 pandemic. In April 2020, the government of India permitted industrial oxygen manufacturers to manufacture and sell the gas for medical use.
