Portable Oxygen Kit Market Research, 2031

The global portable oxygen kit market size was valued at $18.7 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $35.8 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7% from 2022 to 2031.

Portable oxygen cylinders are the medical instruments, specifically designed to provide additional oxygen to patients suffering from respiratory issues or low blood oxygen levels. Portable oxygen kits provide an easy access for medical oxygen at home to the elderly people with respiratory disease. Thus, their regular visit to the hospitals and clinics for oxygen intake is reduced.  Portable oxygen kit has stored medical oxygen which is sufficient for few days for the chronic respiratory disease patients. Once oxygen has been stored in a portable oxygen cylinder, it is administered to the patient via an oxygen mask, nasal tubes, or an oxygen rebreather.

Portable oxygen kits are available in different sizes. Smaller oxygen kits carry less oxygen and need to be refilled more frequently, whereas larger cylinders hold more oxygen and last longer. The activities of a patient and the prescription that his or her doctor has prescribed will determine the size of a cylinder and how it is used. Because of the lighter materials they are made of and the more streamlined designs, portable oxygen tanks are much lighter. Tanks used to be steel-built, reinforced, and capable of holding up to 30 pounds. It could be challenging to manoeuvre portable models, which frequently had wheels. Aluminum is used in modern oxygen tanks, which are lightweight and portable.

The shortage of availability of portable oxygen kits and technological advancements to make them portable, any easily accessible has result in the high price of portable oxygen kit and this factor has hindered the market growth. Lack of awareness among people about the proper and careful handling of portable oxygen kit is further likely to decrease market growth in coming years.  

Prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, and chronic bronchitis is increasing across the globe due to factors like growing age of people and their unhealthy lifestyle. Additionally, the need for portable oxygen kits is expected to rise as the number of geriatric population, suffering from respiratory problems, is growing rapidly and the need oxygen kit has accelerated, even further.

Many government and local regulatory groups have started a number of initiatives and programs to inform the public about COPD and the availability of portable oxygen kits and their benefits along with training in case of any medical emergency. Thus, to cope up with growing demand for portable oxygen kit, companies have started launching new and advanced portable oxygen kit sets in the market and increase their customer base. For instance, in March 2022, GRS India, a Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DIPP) Government of India certified start-up, created the Oxygen Plus field-portable smart bag pack emergency oxygen concentrator with assistance from the North East Centre For Technology Application and Reach (NECTAR), an autonomous organization of the Department of Science and Technology (DST). The field-portable oxygen gear is smart-phone based technology that is simple to handle and easy to transport from one place to another. All these factors are anticipated to have a positive impact on the portable oxygen kit market growth.

The global portable oxygen kit market share is segmented on the basis of end-use, and region. By end-use, the market is classified into healthcare, home application, aerospace & automotive, and others. By region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Portable Oxygen Kit Market by End User

Based on end-use, home applications sub-segment dominated the global portable oxygen kit market in 2021. The growth of this sub-segment can be attributed to increased demand for portable oxygen kits for use in domestic applications by geriatric population suffering from chronic respiratory disease, and technological advancements like the small size of this medical gear that make it portable and travel friendly. Additionally, rising living standards and an increase in the use of home-based oxygen therapy by geriatric population, particularly in developed nations such as North America and Europe, is also likely to drive the protable oxygen kit market size in projected time span.

Portable Oxygen Kit Market by Region

By region, North America regional market is projected to be the most dominating portable oxygen kit market in the forecast period. This is due to increased COVID-19 cases and high prevalence of breathing disorders experienced by the people suffering from COVID-19 infection. Also, rapidly growing geriatric population in the region and associated respiratory issues with ageing are the key factor for the growth of portable oxygen cylinder market in North America region. Additionally, government programs like the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) authorization of the use of portable oxygen concentrators during air travel and the rising incidence of severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease brought on by unhealthy lifestyles are boosting the regional market. These factors are predicted to be the major factors affecting the portable oxygen kit market opportunity during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Portable Oxygen Kit Industry

  • COVID-19 has impacted nearly every industry by the exceptional worldwide public health crisis known as COVID-19, and during the forecast period, the impacts are expected to have a positive long-term impact on portable oxygen kit industry growth.
