The global COPD and asthma devices market is expected to reach $51,628.58 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.30% during 2020-2027.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma devices are used as a permanent treatment or rescue therapy for respiratory diseases and other related ailments. Moreover, COPD and asthma are the respiratory diseases that cause difficulty in breathing and a blockage in the airways of lungs. Furthermore, according to the Global Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, around 251 million cases of COPD were estimated globally. Thus, a variety of drug-delivery protocols, such as oral and parenteral delivery, are developed for the treatment of COPD and asthma. However, the pulmonary drug delivery system is the most effective treatment option as compared to the other conventional methods.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma are a chronic inflammatory lung disorder. The COPD and Asthma symptoms & causes are equivalent to the symptoms of the pandemic coronavirus disease 2019. In addition, asthmatic patients are more prone to the Covid-19 symptoms. According to the paper published by the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, in 2020, the patients with the asthma and COPD appear to have increased their adherence to inhalers medications during the Covid-19. Moreover, according to the National Health Service (NHS) in 2020, the number of inhalers prescribed by general practitioners in England increased by 63% between February 2020 and March 2020. Further, in some parts of the country such as U.K and U.S. are experiencing shortages of albuterol inhalers, because hospitals are using them more for COVID-19 patients. Thus, Covid-19 has uplifted the growth and opportunities for the manufacturers of COPD and Asthma devices during the forecast period.
The major factors that contribute toward the growth of the COPD and asthma devices market include rise in prevalence of respiratory diseases such as COPD, asthma, and emphysema; growing need for rescue medication during sudden asthmatic attack; and burgeoning demand for short-term, effective medication. Moreover, increase in focus of manufacturers toward the development of advanced, portable inhalation devices, and government initiatives toward the spread of awareness for COPD and asthma symptoms are expected to boost the market growth. However, the factors such as environmental concerns associated with metered dose inhalers (MDI), high cost of some inhalation devices and treatment, rise in price competition, and deterioration of material quality are expected to restrain the market growth. In addition, incompetent reimbursement support and patent expiration for blockbuster drugs hamper the market growth. On the contrary, rise in use of the smart inhaler devices that are more intuitive and drive the patient engagement and adherence while increasing treatment effectiveness is anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunity for the market growth in the near future.

The use of inhalers and nebulizers has emerged as an effective solution for the treatment of COPD and asthma, which largely contributes to the growth of this market. Inhalers are used as handheld devices, whereas nebulizers have wide acceptance in home care treatments for COPD and asthma. The market is driven by the growing patient COPD and asthmatic population, as well as FDA approvals for the novel products and its wide acceptance among the patient population. Increase in government initiatives to control COPD and asthma further fuels the growth for this market.
The inhalers market consists of three types of inhalers, namely, drug powder inhalers (DPIs), metered dose inhalers (MDIs), and soft mist inhalers (SMIs). The use of MDIs releases environmentally hazardous gases, namely CFC and HFA, which has led the healthcare regulatory authorities to ban the production and usage of MDIs. This is likely to adversely affect the growth of MDIs market during the analysis period.
Whereas, The SMIs segment is estimated to register a higher CAGR as compared to its peers as SMI is three times more effective than DPIs and MDIs.
