COPD is considered to be the third-leading cause of death in the U.S., and fourth-leading cause of death across the world. According to an article published on Verywell Health, COPD affects around 11 million people in the U.S. and commonly occurs in people over the age of 40. This indication drives the need for supplemental oxygen, which is managed by the use of oxygen conserving devices.
According to the Global Burden of Disease Study, in 2016, 251 million cases of COPD were identified, and 3.17 million deaths were recorded due to this disease, globally. Mostly 90% of deaths by COPD occur in middle or low income countries. A major cause for COPD disease is the increase in incidence of smoking among adults across the globe. Moreover, long-term asthma is also responsible for causing the COPD disease. According to research published in Science Daily, in April 2018, China was home to a significantly large population of adult COPD patients, which is estimated to be 100 million. This number represents around 8.6% of the population of China, which indicates that the prevalence of COPD is considerably high in China.
Increasing Geriatric Population Fuels Demand for Continuous Innovation in Oxygen Therapy
Rising geriatric population, globally, is fueling the demand for oxygen conserving devices to carry out their daily activities. The geriatric population often suffers from certain chronic respiratory diseases that hamper their mobility; hence, their dependence on oxygen therapy helps improve the quality of their life. For instance, pneumatic, electronic, and disposable oxygen conservers are available for geriatric patients and thus, fulfill the need for devices offering supplemental oxygen. Rise in the geriatric population demands better treatment options, which in turn is likely to provide opportunities to companies that operate in the oxygen conserving devices market. According to the United Nations, the geriatric population, or people above the age of 60, is expected to double by 2050, and triple by 2100. It is projected to rise from 962 million in 2017 to 2.1 billion by 2050 and reach 3.1 billion by 2100. Globally, the geriatric population is the rising at a rapid pace, as compared to the population growth rate of the younger age group.
Rising Prevalence of Chronic Bronchitis Drives Demand for Oxygen Conserving Devices
In terms of indication, the oxygen conserving devices market has been segmented into chronic bronchitis, emphysema, sleep apnea, and others. Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are two major COPD diseases that accounted for considerable deaths and these conditions drive the need for oxygen therapy across globe. Patients suffering from severe COPD require continuous supply of oxygen. According to WHO, COPD is the fourth-leading cause of death in the world, with approximately 2.75 million deaths per annum. The WHO predicts that COPD would be the third-leading cause of death by 2030. According to the CDC, over 16 million people in the U.S. are living with respiratory disorders such as lung cancer, COPD, and heart diseases, caused due to smoking.
Research Activities Lead to Development of Improved Oxygen Conserving Devices
Research activities are expected to play an imperative role in the development of advanced oxygen conserving devices. Stakeholders in the oxygen conserving devices market are concentrating their efforts toward improving the design of their devices to optimize the level of oxygen inhaled by patients. At present, different types of oxygen conserving devices that are available include pneumatic, electronic, and disposable.

Pneumatic and electronic oxygen conserving devices are projected to account for a combined share of ~72% of the oxygen conserving devices market in 2020. While stakeholders continue to emphasize on enhancing the design of their devices, a barrage of lightweight oxygen conserving devices is available. For instance, Responsive Respiratory Inc. developed a disposable oxygen conserving device that is light in weight for hard-to-saturate patients. The new device does not require added humidification, as it comes with an in-built humidification effect.
Oxygen Conserving Devices a Suitable Alternative for Conventional Oxygen Therapy
Conventional home oxygen therapy involves low-flow oxygen and involves continual oxygen flow that is delivered through a nasal cannula. Despite being a relatively simple delivery process, it was wasteful as the oxygen delivered during expiration is largely wasted. Furthermore, a significant volume of oxygen was wasted during late inhalation wherein oxygen does not reach the gas-exchanging lung units. Thus, integrating a range of oxygen sources, including liquid oxygen, lightweight compressed oxygen, and battery-powered oxygen concentrator with various oxygen conserving devices emerged as an ideal oxygen conserving solution. These devices are known as pulsed oxygen delivery systems. Multiple studies and clinical trials have revealed that pulsed oxygen delivery system devices are highly effective in an array of breathing behaviors such as at rest, during sleep, or during exercise.
Despite these advancements, a significant amount of research is in place to improve the efficacy of modern pulsed oxygen technology. Apart from pulsed oxygen delivery systems, within the oxygen conserving devices market, portable oxygen concentrator devices are also garnering a notable amount of traction, as these devices have optimum functional and physical properties, including weight, size, and can also be used in passenger flights. Thus, due to the growing adoption of portable oxygen concentrator and pulsed oxygen delivery system devices, the oxygen conserving devices market is expected to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period (2019-2027).
In terms of region, the oxygen conserving devices market has been segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the oxygen conserving devices market in 2020, followed by Europe.
