The company facilitates the penetration of on-premise PSA (Pressure swing adsorption) oxygen generators in Indian hospitals with nearly 872 installed and operational PSA oxygen generators, as of March 2022. PSA oxygen generators are the equipment that produces oxygen with purity using adsorbents to remove nitrogen gas from the air. This equipment provides a stable supply of oxygen at a lower cost than other traditional medical oxygen procurement methods.
Demand for medical oxygen is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7-8 per cent from fiscal 2020 to fiscal 2027 in terms of volume, the draft papers said citing a Crisil report. Over 80 per cent of the hospitals in India procure medical oxygen through cylinders. More than half of the demand for medical oxygen is expected to be met through the PSA method by fiscal 2027, it added.
JM Financial and ICICI Securities are the book-running lead managers to the issue.
