By End Users – Portable Oxygen Concentrators

A portable oxygen concentrator (POC) is a device used to provide oxygen therapy to people that require greater oxygen concentrations than the levels of ambient air. It is similar to a home oxygen concentrator (OC), but is smaller in size and more mobile. Portable concentrators are made small enough to carry in under one arm, in a backpack or attach to a cart or walker so the patient can move about freely at home or while travelling.

Manufacturers are trying to enhance the portable concentrators to match the reliability and flow rates of stationary concentrators with the portability and convenience of a portable concentrator

Geographical Analysis – Argentina

Argentina launched government initiatives to increase healthcare awareness among people. For instance, in 2015, Argentina launched Universal Health Coverage System which brought additional 15 million Argentines under coverage. These initiatives are likely to encourage the increasing expenditure in-home care medical devices like stationary oxygen concentrators.

Argentina’s government announced a National Agency for Health Technology Evaluation to develop ways to achieve technology-enabled cost efficiencies in key public spending areas such as buying equipment and prescribing medications.

In 2015, Argentina’s government allocated US$ 500 million to invest in healthcare infrastructure and hospital expansions that require medical equipment such as oxygen concentrators for enhanced treatment procedures. Argentina’s ageing population requires constant monitoring, thus driving the demand for new wearable and portable medical devices
