Key factors impacting the market:
The key players in the market face price competition from the local device manufacturers. In the developing and underdeveloped regions, the local manufacturers sell these COPD and asthma devices at lower prices owing to the availability of cheap raw materials, thus restraining growth of the market (in terms of value). COPD and asthma treatment is a long and expensive process; affordability of the treatment cost is a core-restraining factor for seeking treatment (services and products/devices). Reimbursements are unavailable or inadequate in many of the developing and underdeveloped nations. Rising percentage of smokers is expected to significantly affect the adoption of these devices by 2020. Portable devices are the only alternative for nebulizer treatments in COPD and asthma. The usage of the portable devices is likely to grow in the near future owing to the inherent benefits of these devices. By 2020, the impact of pollution is likely to worsen worldly, owing to the industrialization of areas and rising number of vehicles. Currently, government initiatives and rising healthcare expenditure have a notable impact on the COPD and asthma devices market, which would enhance over the analysis period. SMIs deliver metered dosage of medication as a soft mist. Rising adoption of these devices is likely to drive the growth of COPD and asthma devices market by 2020. Also, the Patent expiration of popular drugs is a key opportunity for the market due to the increasing availability of generic drugs that can be incorporated in COPD and asthma devices.
