Oxygen cylinder and concentrator is designed to provide oxygen to a patient suffering from breathing issues and low levels of oxygen in blood. Increasing patients who have respiratory disorders and rising prevalence of chronic disorders are significantly driving the demand for oxygen cylinders and concentrators, which will drive the growth of the market. This growth is attributed to oxygen supply playing a significant role for patients who are suffering with chronic disorders to maintain required levels of oxygen. Growing number of people participating in the adventurous sports such as mountain climbing, scuba diving and others, encounter less oxygen levels in the air. Thereby it’s required to maintain artificial oxygen respiratory systems, which will increase the demand for oxygen cylinders; this factor is expected to fuel the growth of the market. Moreover, increasing usage of oxygen cylinders in the manufacturing sector for several applications including frame cutting, welding, and blast furnace to produce steel and other applications is estimated to accelerate the growth of the market.

The price fluctuation and availability of oxygen cylinders and concentrators are majorly restraining the growth of the market. Moreover, improper handling and management of oxygen cylinders may lead to serious accidents; this factor is negatively impacting the global oxygen cylinder and concentrator market growth.



As per the World Health Organization (WHO), the coronavirus is a large family of viruses that can cause several respiratory disorders including severe acute respiratory syndrome and middle east respiratory syndrome. Effort for a vaccine to combat the coronavirus is under progressing. Also, until a medical treatment is developed for coronavirus, artificial respiration systems are a significant equipment in the treatment of COVID-19 patients. In addition, significant players and several medical equipment retailers are open and delivering safety precautionary measures such as oxygen cylinders and concentrators to the customer. For instance, Harmony home medical, the leading home medical equipment retailer, is providing portable oxygen concentrators along with great service and price. Furthermore, this venture is providing home delivery for oxygen concentrators. These factors are eventually fueling the growth of the market during this crisis.

Furthermore, many government bodies and non-profit organizations are endorsing consistent oxygen supply that is essential for patients suffering from COPD and cardiovascular diseases to enhance the chances of their survival. This aspect is further estimated to boost the market growth in the COVID-19 emergency. For instance, Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has asked the leading gas cylinders manufacturers including Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) to ensure timely supply of oxygen cylinders to critical facilities and hospitals based on requisitions.



The global oxygen cylinder and concentrator market is anticipated to experience a noticeable growth during this lockdown period and continue its trend after the COVID-19 emergency is under control. During this time of crisis, the demand for oxygen cylinders and concentrators has increased enormously due to oxygen supply being vital in the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

In addition, several government bodies are supporting the manufacturers for the production of oxygen gas for healthcare applications. For instance, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has committed to providing enforcement policy and guidelines for ventilators and other respiratory accessories. In this, FDA has planned to expand the availability and production of these devices during this pandemic. Furthermore, many significant players are concentrating on product launches and new technology introduction to obtain a competitive edge. For example, in 2019, inogen has launched new innovative portable oxygen concentrator “Inogen One G5” to improve financial performance in the regional market. These factors are anticipated to create lucrative opportunities in the global market.
