The medical gases and equipment market holds a high growth potential due to the increasing count of geriatric population and advancements in the pharmaceutical industry. The purity of the gases plays an important role in the recovery of the patient and there is also a risk of acquiring infection through medical gases. Due to this reason, the medical gases need to be manufactured according to certain specified standards. The increasing incidences of chronic respiratory diseases, implementation of the industry friendly regulations (such as FDA Safety and Innovation Act) and increasing research in the field of biotechnology , are the key factors, which would drive the growth of global medical gases and equipment market during the analysis period. Furthermore, the formulation of government initiatives to increase the availability of emergency care in developing economies, would largely drive the medical gases and equipment market. A major factor restraining the market growth is a global shortage of helium due to the shutdown of the Federal Helium Reserve. Due to the Helium Privatization Act in America, the Federal Helium Reserve would be shut down, and the resources would be handed over to the private sector.
