The pulmonary drug delivery method involves inhaling medication through the lungs and delivering it into the bloodstream. Pulmonary drug delivery is a noninvasive, safer method than intradermal or arterial injections. Moreover, the technological advancements, increasing consumption of tobacco and smoking, exposure to air pollution, along with development in drug delivery systems are anticipated to duel market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in February 2022, AptarGroup, Inc. launched HeroTracker Sense, a smart connected respiratory health device, which transforms a standard metered dose inhaler (pMDI) into a digital respiratory health tool.

Global Pulmonary Drug Delivery Devices Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Prevalence of Chronic Respiratory Diseases- For instance, in 2019 chronic respiratory diseases accounted for more than 260,400 deaths in men and nearly 250,700 deaths in women in United States. 

Chronic respiratory diseases such as obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma are commonly treated with pulmonary devices that deliver medication to the respiratory tract, such as inhalers. These medications are used both to prevent exacerbations of chronic conditions and to treat them. Thus the rising prevalence of respiratory diseases is anticipated to propel the demand for pulmonary drug delivery devices during the forecast period.

  • Increase in Number of Hospitals and Diagnostic Centers-
    In year 2021-22, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) fund infusion into hospitals and diagnostic centers in India increased by 37% to USD 690 million.
  • Continuous Rise in COVID – 19 Cases Worldwide- For instance, United States averaged nearly 30,000 new cases of COVID-19 every day in April 2022, 2% more than in previous weeks.
  • Increasing Air Pollutants - World Health Organization (WHO) statistics show that in 2018, 9 out of 10 people inhaled polluted air. There are about 7 million deaths each year from chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases caused by exposure to fine particles in polluted air.
  • Rise In Exports Of Medical Appliances - According to the statistics by the International Trade Center (Trademap), the global value of exports of medical appliances in the year 2021 was recorded to be USD 14,170,931 thousand, which was an increase from USD 12,754,842 thousand in the previous year.


  • Presence of Alternative Drug Delivery Systems
  • Strict Government Regulations of Product Approval
  • Side Effects Related to Long Term Use of Product

The global pulmonary drug delivery devices market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into asthma, cystic fibrosis, COPD, allergic rhinitis, and others. Among these segments, the COPD segment is anticipated to capture the largest market size in the global pulmonary drug delivery devices market owing to the higher prevalence and severity of this disease worldwide. For instance, COPD prevalence worldwide was 10% in 2019, accounting for 390 million cases among people over 40 years. Moreover, treatment for COPD is subsidized by government policies and non-governmental organizations are increasingly providing COPD treatment, these factors are anticipated to drive segment growth during the forecast period.
