Why do more and more people use oxygen concentrators?

In the past 10 years, the development of portable oxygen generators suitable for home use has been extremely rapid. In developed countries in Europe and the United States, portable small oxygen concentrators have long been popular, while in developing countries such as China, India, Brazil and Mexico, household oxygen concentrators have quietly entered ordinary households in recent years, and many brands have been quite mature. To a large extent, this should be attributed to the continuous improvement of the production technology of oxygen concentrators, the intensification of the aging population and the subsequent sharp increase in the incidence of "chronic obstructive pulmonary" (COPD) and many other factors.

According to data released by the World Health Organization, the total number of COPD cases worldwide last year exceeded 65 million, and this number is still increasing. It is estimated that more than 3 million people around the world die every year from "respiratory distress" caused by acute episodes of COPD. The medical profession believes that COPD patients can alleviate their condition by inhaling oxygen when the disease is acute. A small oxygen generator in the home of COPD patients is the best measure to prevent sudden death.

In the past 10 years, domestic portable oxygen concentrators have made great progress in developed countries such as Europe and the United States and Japan, Australia, Canada and other developed countries, but the development speed in other countries has been relatively slow. The United States is the world’s largest market for household oxygen concentrators. The United States sells 1 million to 2 million household oxygen concentrators per year on average, followed by Europe, which sells about 1 million household oxygen concentrators per year. Household oxygen concentrators sold in other countries and regions. The total number of machines is about 1 million units.
