Oxygen Concentrators Market Size & Trends

The global oxygen concentrators market size was estimated at USD 3.5 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.3 % from 2024 to 2030. This is attributed to rising prevalence of respiratory disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and sleep apnea coupled with increasing launch of technologically advanced devices. According to the Global Impact of Respiratory Disease study, around 200 million people suffer from COPD globally, resulting in 3.2 million deaths every year. Moreover, growing preference for home-based therapy is anticipated to drive market growth from 2024 to 2030.

U.S. Oxygen Concentrators Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

COVID-19 had a limited positive impact on the market, driving increased demand for technologically advanced and cost-effective oxygen concentrators. For example, UNICEF distributed 62,046 concentrators to 104 nations worldwide in July 2021, with approximately 12,788 concentrators sourced from a Chinese trade company. Growing need for emergency treatment and prolonged care for lung diseases in children and adults further propels the industry.

Market Dynamics

Oxygen therapy has become a preferred choice for managing respiratory disorders, offering medical intervention for acute and chronic patient care. Rising adoption of portable oxygen concentrators also supports the market. For instance, in the U.S., the market penetration of portable oxygen concentrators increased from 8% in 2015 to 22% in 2021, as reported by U.S. Medicare claims data, indicating these devices' growing popularity and usage.

Moreover, regional governments offer reimbursement policies that cover the cost of POCs for patients with respiratory illnesses. For instance, according to Inogen's 10K form document for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021, the international market (excluding the U.S.) is attractive for oxygen concentrators due to favorable reimbursement policies in certain countries such as the UK and France. In these countries, portable oxygen concentrators receive more favorable reimbursement than in the U.S.

Cost is crucial in the oxygen concentrator industry, particularly in India, where it significantly influences device adoption. Competitors employ competitive pricing as a primary strategy. For example, in April 2021, Koninklijke Philips N.V. implemented a 7% price reduction on its oxygen concentrators in India, passing on benefits of a government-custom duty reduction to customers. This resulted in a decrease in maximum retail price (MRP) of their products. As of April 2021, the MRP of the company's oxygen concentrator is INR 68,120 (USD 940), down from INR 73,311 (USD 1,012) {exchange rate used (2021)- INR 1 = USD 0.0138}.

Product Insights

Based on product, the market is divided into two segments: portable medical oxygen concentrators and fixed medical oxygen concentrators. In 2023, fixed medical oxygen concentrators segment held the majority market share of 53.2%. This can be attributed to factors such as a growing geriatric population, a large base of long-term patients, and increasing demand for these devices in hospitals. Portable medical oxygen concentrators segment is expected to experience the fastest growth, with a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. This growth is driven by increasing awareness of the benefits associated with use of portable concentrators.

Moreover, there is a rising demand for portable medical oxygen concentrators due to increasing number of mobile patients who require out-of-home solutions. According to Inogen's 10K form document for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, approximately 80% of U.S. long-term oxygen therapy users utilized ambulatory oxygen, while remaining 20% were considered stationary. This data highlights growing demand and utilization of portable medical oxygen concentrators.

Technology Insights

Based on technology, the market is segmented into continuous flow and pulse flow. In 2023, continuous flow segment held the largest revenue share of 56.6% due to the growing prevalence of long-term respiratory disorders such as asthma, COPD, bronchiectasis, and chronic sinusitis. Moreover, continuous flow technology is also being utilized for residential and military applications, which avoids hazard of storing oxygen under pressure.

Pulse flow segment is anticipated to show fastest growth of CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period. The segment growth is attributed to its increasing preference among patients suffering from COPD owing to its wide applications in portable devices. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 3 million deaths were caused by COPD in 2019 globally and this number is expected to increase over the forecast period.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is segmented into home care and non-home care. Home care segment held the largest share of over 60.9% in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period. Technological advancements and adoption of home therapy in developed countries contribute significantly to the market's revenue share. Availability of a wide range of concentrators for home therapy also plays a crucial role. Also, presence of a sizable geriatric population in countries such as Japan, Germany, Italy, and others is expected to drive market growth. In addition, expansion of healthcare insurance coverage for oxygen concentrators in many countries further fuels the market growth.

Global Oxygen Concentrators Market share and size, 2023

Non-homecare segment is expected to show moderate growth during the forecast period, owing to increased adoption of oxygen therapy in hospitals and clinics. The segment witnessed growth in 2020 due to increased usage of oxygen therapy for hospitalized COVID-19 patients.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market with a market share of over 38.1% in 2023 owing to its advanced healthcare infrastructure, high investment in R&D, availability of the latest technologies, and product launches. Furthermore, the Medicare penetration rate for Portable Oxygen Concentrators (POCs) in the U.S. has significantly increased. In 2021, POCs penetration was 22.0% whereas that of stationary was 17%, based on analyzed Medicare claims data. This indicates a growing trend towards greater acceptance of POCs over fixed oxygen concentrators, driving the market growth. The growth in the region is further driven by government support, as the authorization of portable concentrators during air travel is given by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Oxygen Concentrators Market Trends by Region, 2024 - 2030

Asia Pacific region is anticipated to witness the fastest growth from 2024 to 2030 with a CAGR of 5.7%. The growth is attributed to rising prevalence of respiratory diseases, a rapidly aging population, and an increasing focus on home healthcare. This growth is supported by increasing adoption of portable oxygen concentrators.
