Oxygen Conserving Devices Market Introduction

An oxygen conserving device (OCD) regulates the flow of oxygen from the source of the oxygen to the patient. Oxygen conserving devices include demand oxygen delivery systems, reservoir cannulas, and transtracheal catheters. The oxygen conserving devices are designed to correct hypoxemia with a minimal flow of oxygen and increase the extent of time an oxygen tank would last. This provides patients increased mobility and comfort from avoiding a continuous flow of oxygen into the nostrils. The oxygen conserving devices make oxygen therapy more portable, more efficient, and less intrusive. An oxygen conserving device makes oxygen supply last longer. Oxygen conserving devices are mainly of two types: electronic oxygen conservation devices and pneumatic oxygen conservation devices.

Oxygen Conserving Devices Market Dynamics

Rise in Lung Diseases and Large Patient Pool of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD)

Increase in prevalence and incidences of lung diseases and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases is expected to drive the demand for oxygen conserving devices. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there were about 251 million cases of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in 2016 worldwide. Additionally, globally, it was estimated that 3.17 million deaths occurred due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in 2015, i.e. around 5% of all deaths around the world in that year. Around 90% of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease deaths occur in low and middle-income countries.
