Exercise Oxygen Equipment Markets to reach $2.8 billion dollars by 2022

Exercise Oxygen Equipment: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2016 to 2022 is a new market research publication announced by Reportstack. Worldwide Exercise Oxygen Equipment markets are poised to achieve significant growth as consumer oxygen markets emerge from the trial phase to be used in sports clubs, by athletic teams, and in corporate gyms to increase the value of exercise and offer people a way to be more comfortable while they exercise.

A low blood count pulse oximeter reading is cause for concern. A normal pulse oximeter reading does not tell us anything. The study looks at the excess of carbon dioxide found in tissue of many people before, during, and after exercise, and asks the question whether there is not enough oxygen in the lungs and blood hemoglobin to eliminate excess carbon dioxide. The use of supplemental oxygen appears to be indicated even when the pulse oximeter gives an entirely normal reading.

Consumer oxygen works to release excess carbon dioxide trapped in tissue because the blood oxygen is not sufficient to do the cleaning function one wished it would do. With the aging of the population, many people do not exercise enough to gather the waste carbon dioxide generated by muscles and tissue. With the dramatic increase in people who are overweight and even obese, there is increased need for supplemental oxygen availability at the sites where people exercise. Only modest amounts of supplemental oxygen are needed to have an effect.

Recreational oxygen has been available for a while, but only recently has there been a basic understanding of the value: eliminating excess carbon dioxide in the body. Build-ups of carbon dioxide come from the muscles. Recognition of the ability of to get rid of this excess has been enough to validate the value of supplemental oxygen.

Exercise oxygen equipment is positioned to help regular non-diseased people and athletes achieve performance recovery after exercise. Supplemental oxygen permits longer periods of exercise and supports faster return to exercise after a rest interval. Supplemental oxygen along with exercise appears to help with tissue repair by eliminating excess carbon dioxide. For older people, supplemental oxygen appears to help with fighting inflammation and improving mental acuity: Supplemental oxygen is:

dissolved in plasma, already 2% oxygen;
bound to hemoglobin in red blood cells, as it drops below 98% oxygen.

Breathing supplemental oxygen adds more oxygen to the body even when the hemoglobin is already apparently saturated according to pulse oximeter readings. If the oxygen fully saturates the hemoglobin it increases the concentration of dissolved oxygen in plasma, creating the ability to eliminate excess carbon dioxide.

Exercise oxygen equipment is useful for improving personal performance and endurance during workouts. It gives athletes competitive advantage in sporting events. Supplemental oxygen is not banned because the oxygen has significant health benefits that cannot reasonably be taken away by sports governing bodies.

Prices of supplemental oxygen are expected to plummet based on economies of scale as adoption and usage becomes widespread. People could not get affordable or have convenient access to consumer oxygen before, now there are ways to make personal oxygen available in a convenient manner. AirSep offers its Focus device which weighs 1.7 pounds with a battery. Exercise with oxygen therapy can increase exercise capacity and lead to performance gains. Sports clubs are expected to offer small stylish canisters of oxygen for $15 per month.

OHS is a breathing disorder in obese people that leads to a misrepresentation of pulse oximeter readings of blood oxygen levels. When there is too much carbon dioxide in the tissue, more carbon dioxide than can be cleaned even by fully saturated blood oxygen levels, there is a difficulty with fully cleaning the carbon dioxide from the cells. OHS is interesting because obese people with normal blood oxygen saturation cannot expel all the carbon dioxide from their cells.

Football players, basketball players, speed skaters, and hockey players use oxygen to support performance when exhausted. Professional athletes use supplemental oxygen. The reason is that during strenuous physical activity the body exhales more carbon dioxide than it admits oxygen.

Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to tissues and help the cardiovascular system work more efficiently. Breathing supplemental oxygen after strenuous activity is becoming more accepted by people interested in health and fitness. Oxygen can be used to address fatigue as a symptom. Fatigue is a symptom, not a disease. It is experienced differently by different people.

Exercise oxygen equipment markets at $3.9 million in 2015 are anticipated to reach $2.8 billion dollars by 2022. Growth is a result of new competitors in the market, demand for the smaller lighter technology by people exercising, and the market need by for stationary devices at clubs and gyms even as portable devices provide greater mobility support for bike riders, joggers, and older people.
