Medical Gases Market

Among the considered end-users, hospitals and clinics is the largest segment for medical gases. The consumption of all forms of medical gases commercially available is high in hospitals. Requirement of medical gases in medical procedures such as surgeries, intensive care, emergency response and the high prevalence of medical procedures being conducted worldwide contribute to the dominance of hospitals and clinics segment. On the other hand, the home healthcare segment is anticipated to undergo the fastest growth during forecast period. Trending shift from hospital to home care is a key facilitator to growth of this segment. In line of this movement, the regulatory bodies are gradually making way for a robust establishment of this segment.

Geographically, the medical gases market is cumulative to North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.

Medical Gases Market

Further elucidation of this segmentation is as follows:

1.    North America (U.S. & Canada)

2.    Europe (U.K., Germany & Rest of Europe)

3.    Asia-Pacific (Japan, China & Rest of Asia-Pacific)

4.    Latin America
