Rising number of smokers and growing exposure to dust particles will further fuel the market growth. Cigarette smoke releases chemicals which are absorbed by lungs leading to tissue and cell damage. Inhalation of dust particles and their consequent settling in the airways may lead to inflammation of the trachea or bronchitis. These factors increase the risk of acquiring respiratory diseases.

Lack of availability of these devices in developing regions hampers the market expansion. Low product availability is often related to cost and lack of infrastructure. Risk of operational hazards due to unsafe or improper storage practices which may result in serious injuries hampering the industry growth.

COVID-19 pandemic has positively impacted the global oxygen cylinders and concentrators market. Coronavirus infection can severely affect the lungs and thereby, the breathing rate of patients. Hence, as per the healthcare authorities, oxygen therapy is recommended for moderate to severely affected patients. Oxygen therapy may be given though various modalities including oxygen concentrators and cylinders and thus, these devices have observed robust demand during the past few months across the globe.

High-income countries of North America and Europe have substantial resources and facilities, whereas, low- and middle-income countries including India have experienced high scale demand for oxygen concentrators and cylinders, along with delays and disruptions in the supply chain. With raised customer demand coupled with inflated prices, the industry is forecasted to experience considerable revenue growth. Furthermore, the market will foresee demand for both, fixed and portable devices, owing to presence of significant patient base in hospitals and homecare. Thus, the global market will boom in the healthcare sector significantly during the forecast timeframe.
