Respiratory Inhaler Device Market : Global Demand Analysis & Opportunity Outlook 2023

Published On : December, 2018 REP-ID-202 Category: Healthcare

Global Respiratory Inhaler Device Market Overview

Industrialization has led to an uncertain increase in the environmental pollution, which is giving birth to a number of respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). The global market of respiratory inhaler devices is on a high pace due to rapid increasing respiratory diseases. Tens of millions people suffer from lung cancer in U.S due to industrialization which resulted into increased environmental pollution, smoking etc.

                      Respiratory Inhaler Device Market Demand & Revenue Opportunity

Market Size & Forecast

In 2015, global revenue generated by respiratory inhaler devices stood at USD 30 billion witnessing a compound annual growth rate of 4.3% over the forecast period i.e. 2016-2023. MDIs (metered dose inhalers) constituted the largest market share among inhalation systems followed by dry powder inhaler which is used for treating cystic fibrosis, a life threatening lung disease. In 2015, MDIs segment accounted for 70% of the global revenue.

North America is anticipated to hold the largest consumer base of respiratory inhaler devices followed by Western Europe. North America and Western Europe collectively accounted 65% of the total respiratory inhaler device market in terms of revenue share by the end of 2015 owing to the increasing environmental pollution due to industrialization and smoking habits which is commonly found among youngsters.

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be the most attractive market in terms of compound annual growth rate, Asia Pacific market is estimated to project a CAGR of 5% over the forecast period due to increasing prevalence of asthma and COPD among children and the geriatric population.

The immune systems of children and older adults are more prone to chronic respiratory diseases; respiratory inhalers devices are anticipated to experience a huge demand in the near future due to increasing number of respiratory patients. It is concerning that the global asthma patients which are substantial in numbers seem to be increasing rapidly as the world becomes more westernised. Developing countries are more vulnerable to respiratory diseases due to poverty that exacerbates risk factors such as indoor air pollution and tobacco consumption, government of these countries are taking strategic and collaborative actions to diagnose and manage respiratory health problems in their countries.  

Increasing health awareness coupled with increasing personal disposable income which will result in increased sending on respiratory problems, this will further surge the demand of respiratory inhaler devices in the upcoming 5-6 years.
