Published 30 January 2018

The medical gases market is estimated to represent a global market of USD 7.7 billion by 2017 with growth rate of 7.1%. Medical gases are pharmaceutical molecules, specifically used for the medical, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. These are widely used for the treatment of patients in hospitals, clinics as well as in emergency services. Additionally, these are used to synthesize, insulate or sterilize medical products. Increasing prevalence of lifestyle and chronic diseases stimulate the market for medical gas during the future period. According to the WHO, the chronic diseases (chronic respiratory diseases, heart disorder, stroke, cancer, and diabetes) are responsible for 38 million deaths (around 68% of all deaths worldwide) in 2012. Each year, 16 million people die from NCDs before the age of 70. Additionally, constant aging population, growing demand for home care, and technological advancements will support the market growth to great extent. However, medical gases and its associated equipment are highly regulated by the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. A violation of the act leads to court-enforced trials including seizure of the finished product, ingredients, and the equipment; a permanent or temporary ban on the manufacturing or filling of compressed medical gases; and criminal prosecution. Such facts will hamper the market growth.
