Furthermore, favorable reimbursement policies have enhanced the attractiveness of the global oxygen concentrators market. For instance, in March 2024, a U.S. Congressman introduced the Supplemental Oxygen Access Reform (SOAR) Act to reform and improve access to supplementary oxygen for Medicare beneficiaries. These policies have increased the adoption of oxygen concentrators in the U.S. In addition, rising healthcare spending in the U.S. and Canada is driving the demand for effective diagnosis and treatment of respiratory diseases, thereby boosting the market for oxygen concentrators

Initiatives by public and private authorities, such as the World Health Organization's distribution of oxygen concentrators and the efforts of associations like the American Lung Association, promote awareness of respiratory diseases. Market players also employ strategies such as acquisitions, collaborations, expansions, and new product launches to extend their product offerings and geographical reach. For instance, React Health's acquisition of Invacare's Respiratory line in February 2023 strengthened its market position, expanded its product portfolio, and enabled them to cater to a wider customer base.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

North American oxygen concentrators industry exhibits a high degree of innovation, with companies like Inogen introducing cutting-edge products. For instance, in December 2022, Inogen received 510(k) premarket clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its new portable oxygen concentrator, Rove 4. This product is expected to enhance Inogen's leadership in portable oxygen concentrators. Such regulatory milestones strengthen manufacturers' portfolios, as seen with Inogen's Rove series.

M&A activities like mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships facilitate geographic expansion and market entry for companies. For example, React Health, a player in medical device development, manufacturing, and distribution, acquired Invacare's Respiratory line in February 2023. This strategic move bolsters React Health's market standing, broadens its product offerings, and enhances its ability to serve a wider customer base.

Regulatory framework for oxygen concentrators represents a significant barrier, particularly in terms of regulatory stringency impact. Companies such as Invacare Corporation and Philips have encountered prolonged consent decrees from the U.S. FDA, illustrating the stringent regulatory environment in the U.S. market.

Concerns have emerged regarding the disruptive effects of frequent regulatory scrutiny on market stability. There is a growing consensus that an overly stringent focus on regulatory perfection may impede the development of practical solutions. This underscores the necessity for a balanced approach that prioritizes both regulatory compliance and innovation.

Geographic expansion plays a key role in driving the growth of North American market by fostering collaboration, access to diverse datasets, and talent pools across regions. It enables companies to tap into new markets, leverage local expertise, comply with region-specific regulations, and gain insights from different healthcare systems, ultimately driving innovation and accelerating the adoption of oxygen concentrators.

Product Insights

The market is segmented into portable oxygen concentrators and fixed oxygen concentrators. The portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) segment led the market with the largest revenue market share of 54.8% in 2023. Moreover, the segment is anticipated to witness at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The growth is owing to the increasing need for portable medical oxygen concentrators, especially among mobile patients seeking out-of-home solutions. Inogen's 10K report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, highlights that approximately 80% of long-term oxygen therapy users in the U.S. prefer ambulatory oxygen, indicating a robust demand for portable medical oxygen concentrators. Consequently, companies are actively pursuing opportunities to expand in this market segment. For instance, in June 2022, Carire launched a new portable oxygen concentrator, LifeStyle, in the U.S. market. This product has substantially improved the quality of life for oxygen users worldwide by providing a more convenient and reliable oxygen source.

The fixed concentrators segment is expected to grow at a moderate CAGR over the forecast period. Factors such as a substantial number of long-term patients, the growing elderly population, and the rising demand for these hospital devices contribute to the segment's steady performance.

Technology Insights

Based on technology, the market is segmented into continuous flow and pulse flow. The continuous flow segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 61.6% in 2023. This segment's dominance can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of long-term respiratory disorders, including asthma, COPD, bronchiectasis, and chronic sinusitis. Continuous flow technology is also widely used in residential and military applications, providing a safer alternative to storing oxygen under pressure.

North America Oxygen Concentrators Market share and size, 2023

The pulse flow technology segment is expected to experience at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth is driven by the advantages offered by pulse flow technology, including high mobility, lightweight design, and suitability for patients with active lifestyles. Pulse flow technology is particularly beneficial for treating respiratory conditions that require a lower oxygen delivery rate per minute. It is extensively used in portable oxygen concentrators (POCs). For example, in April 2019, Inogen, Inc. introduced the Inogen One G5, a portable oxygen concentrator featuring pulse dose delivery.

Application insights

Based on application, the market is segmented into home care and non-home care. The home care segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 66.7% in 2023. Furthermore, the home care segment is projected to experience at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the rising adoption of Long-Term Oxygen Therapy (LTOT) devices in home settings, the availability of a wide range of home oxygen therapy devices (including Liquid Oxygen systems and portable concentrators), and the shifting preferences of patients towards receiving treatment at home.

The non-homecare segment is expected to exhibit at a moderate CAGR over the forecast period, driven by the increased adoption of oxygen therapy in hospitals and clinics. The segment also witnessed growth in 2020 due to the heightened usage of oxygen therapy for hospitalized COVID-19 patients. Moreover, increasing number of hospital admissions due to respiratory diseases contribute to the segment’s growth.
