Description

Portable oxygen concentrator markets at $948.5 million market in 2016 are set to become a $2.9 billion market in 2023. Market growth is a result of the aging of the population and the increased need for oxygen.

A new study Portable Oxygen Concentrators: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2017 to 2023. The 2017 study has 493 pages, 201 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve continuing growth. Portable oxygen concentrators support lifestyle for medical oxygen users.

Portable oxygen concentrators are approved by the FAA for use on airlines. People on oxygen wish to continue usual activities. Distributors are concentrated on determining which portable oxygen concentrator allows the freedom to continue a meaningful lifestyle. There are two types of oxygen delivery systems providing supplemental oxygen therapy; continuous flow (Respironics SimplyGo, SeQual Eclipes,) and pulse dose (Inogen One G3, AirSep Freestyle, Invacare XPO2).

A pulse dose system is the most commonly used portable oxygen concentrator. Because of its light weight and long battery life, some lasting up to 8 hours on a single battery charge, the units are preferred by patients. Some oxygen users require continuous flow oxygen due to their diagnosis or illness progress. Continuous flow is required by any oxygen user who is titrating oxygen into their CPAP or BiPAP therapy.

Major factors driving the market for portable oxygen concentrators include device ability to provide oxygen under all circumstances. The worldwide aging population benefits from supplemental medical oxygen. An increase in the number of people with COPD and other respiratory diseases are a direct market driver. Advantages of portable oxygen concentrator devices are that they weigh less, are easy to use. They are affordable.

With lowered reimbursement, the dealer distribution network that has been in place for many years is no longer tenable.

Inogen has implemented a direct to consumer market strategy, with sales of oxygen devices conducted over the Internet.

According to the team that developed the market research study, “Technology has achieved major breakthroughs for portable oxygen concentrator units. Smaller and lighter units are of benefit to patients, supporting the ability to carry the devices easily, permitting the implementation of a direct to consumer market strategy.”

A few companies dominate the portable oxygen concentrator market sector. Inogen has taken over the market leadership position with improved technology and innovative marketing. Invacare had carefully nurtured its distribution network and continues to do so, but the markets are changing with deliveries from dealers a problem in the
