Sevoflurane was valued at USD 882 million in 2015 with grow expectations of 3.4% CAGR during forecast period. The desflurane market is expected to grow at 2.3% CAGR and forecasted to exceed USD 300 million by 2024. 

The demand for recycling of anesthetic gases will experience significant growth owing to increased awareness and their impact on global warming. Industry players are focusing on developing scavenging technologies for effective recycling of these gases. A standard practice of installation of Waste Anesthetic Gas Disposal Systems (WAGD) in hospitals will drive the global demand for recycling systems. 

North American revenue is driven by U.S. inhalation anesthesia market share, due to rising prevalence of chronic diseases and increase in surgical procedures among hospitalized patients. The favorable reimbursement policies and presence of developed healthcare infrastructure will stimulate growth. China dominates the Asia Pacific industry, and occupied over a quarter of the regional revenue in 2015. This growth is credited to growing older age population and increasing prevalence of chronic diseases.
