Inhalation Anesthesia Market Overview

The Inhalation Anesthesia Market is projected to reach USD 1,224.27 Million by 2030 at 8.50% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030.

Inhalational anesthetics are used for the induction and maintenance of general anesthesia as well as sedation. They are usually preferred for maintenance because they allow more precise control of the anesthetic state and do so at low cost.
