Bronchiectasis Therapeutic Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Awareness About the Disease - Market growth will be supported by an increase in global awareness of the disease. For example, to raise awareness about bronchiectasis, global lung health organizations from the USA, Europe, Australia, and Asia have joined together to declare July 1, 2022, as the first World Bronchiectasis Awareness Day, according to data published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information on July 1, 2022. The objective of the day is to raise awareness and increase knowledge about bronchiectasis worldwide, to effectively diagnose and manage this disease which has not been adequately addressed.
  • Expansion of Biologics and Targeted Therapies - In the bronchiectasis drug market, biological products and targeted therapies are gaining attention. Specific molecules or pathways associated with the disease process are selectively targeted by these treatments. The potential for accurate and effective treatment is offered by biologicals like monoclonal antibodies and new small molecules. In patients with bronchiectasis, research continues to explore the use of targeted therapy for reducing inflammation, controlling infections, and improving lung function.


  • High Development Cost and Regulatory Obstructions - It may be costly and time-consuming to develop and market new bronchiectasis therapeutic. Pharmaceutical companies may find it difficult to access the market, due to a strict trial procedure, regulatory requirements, and difficulties in accessing the markets. Investment in R&D may be deterred by high development costs associated with the conduct of clinical studies and access to Regulatory Authorisations, which can limit innovation.
  • Presence of Alternative Treatment Options is Set to hamper the market growth in the forecast period
  • Complex Disease Pathophysiology is Expected to Hinder Market Expansion in the Upcoming Period.

Based on type, the antibiotic segment in the bronchiectasis therapeutic market is set to hold the highest CAGR of 70% during the forecast period 2024-2036. The growth of this market can be primarily attributed to the back of increasing prevalence of respiratory disorders. As healthcare providers become more aware of the risks of antibiotic overuse, there is a growing demand for targeted antibiotic therapy that is specific to the bacteria causing the infection.

Online pharmacies can often offer lower prices on medications than traditional brick-and-mortar pharmacies. This is because they have lower overhead costs and can negotiate better deals with drug manufacturers. This segment rapidly grew during the COVID-19 pandemic period as well. CVS Health reported a rise of 1000% in online sales of prescription drugs in covid time.
