Of them, North America currently leads the market. In 2016, its leading share came to over 32.1%. The market is primarily driven by the U.S. on account of its easy reimbursement policies.
Rising Pool of Elderly Proves Beneficial to Market
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is essentially a non-invasive method to increase the rate of healing of damaged tissues. It entails delivery of pure oxygen to the bloodstream under high-pressure. Availability of an array of hyperbaric oxygen chambers of various designs and sizes is primarily responsible for this market’s steady growth rate.
Other factors majorly boosting growth in the global hyperbaric oxygen therapy devices market are the growth in elderly population worldwide, the rising instances of acute and chronic wounds, and the increase in diabetic foot ulcers and pressure cases. Further, surging popularity of leisure adventure activities which results in many accidents and their exhaustive use in aesthetics is also proving beneficial for the market.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy devices find maximum use in wound healing these days. “Rise in public awareness about quicker, smoother wound healing process, extensive use of monoplace HBOT chambers in developed countries of the U.S., Canada, and Japan along with in developing countries such as China, Saudi Arabia, and Brazil is a major factor driving growth in the market,” explains the lead analyst of the report. Major hospitals are readily providing the hyperbaric oxygen therapy in order to speed up the wound healing process and for better recovery.
