The global inhalation anesthesia market is witnessing significant growth from recent years. This growth is attributed to an increasing number of surgeries, an increase in the number of severe road accidents, a rise in the number of world population, and a large number of individuals suffering from cardiovascular, cancer, orthopedic, spinal, respiratory, and neurological gastrointestinal, and various other diseases. An increase in infectious diseases, increased incidence of chronic diseases, and genetic disorders worldwide will propel the market. Increasing innovations in the inhalation devices and rising governmental support will fuel the market growth.

Inhalation anesthesia, also known as volatile anesthetic agents, is a chemical compound with an ability of maintenance and induction of general anesthesia and sedation in the operating room. Inhalation anesthesia is usually preferred for maintenance as they allow precise control of the anesthetic state at a low cost. It offers the experimental surgeon various advantages. Inhalation anesthesia provides amnesia and immobility, except nitrous oxide, that provides analgesia. The most frequent side effect of inhalation anesthesia is nausea. It is produced by the respiration of the volatile liquid, gaseous anesthetic agent. Inhalation anesthesia is preferred in case of impaired hepatic as it eliminates risk and passes through the lungs to reduce hospital care costs. 

The global inhalation anesthesia market is expected to witness significant growth, owing to the advantages of inhalation anesthetics over injectable anesthetics, growing demand for surgical procedures worldwide, and effective for a short duration of time. Inhalation anesthesia drugs can be administered by patients' breathing, and it is efficient and good control over sedation. Strict regulatory scenario, risks associated with the therapeutic and diagnostic devices, and low adoption rate of new technologies will restrain the market growth. The factors providing market growth opportunities are the rise in healthcare expenditure in emerging economies and the rise in the elderly population.
