Key Takeaways

  • By treatment type, the medication segment was the major shareholder in the emphysema treatment market size in 2022.

  • On the basis of type, the centriacinar segment is expected to exhibit the fastest market growth during the forecast period. 

  • Depending on end user, the homecare segment acquired the largest emphysema treatment market size in in 2022.

  • Region wise, North America held the largest market share in 2022; however, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Emphysema is a chronic and progressive lung condition characterized by damage to the air sacs in the lungs, known as alveoli. This damage leads to the deterioration of the lung tissue and results in decreased elasticity, making it difficult to breathe. The primary cause of emphysema is long-term exposure to irritants, most commonly cigarette smoke, although other factors such as air pollution and genetic predisposition can also contribute. Symptoms of emphysema include shortness of breath, chronic coughing, wheezing, and tightness in the chest. Treatment for emphysema focuses on managing symptoms and slowing down the progression of the disease. Medication, oxygen therapy, and surgery are the therapeutic interventions for emphysema treatment.

Market Dynamics

The emphysema treatment market growth is expected to surge significantly owing to rise in prevalence of emphysema, increase in number of smokers globally, and development of healthcare infrastructure. Furthermore, surge in prevalence of emphysema can be attributed to several factors, including an aging population, widespread tobacco use, exposure to environmental pollutants, and increase in incidence of respiratory infections. According to 2023 report by the National Library of Medicine, it was reported that emphysema is caused by chronic and significant exposure to noxious gases, of which cigarette smoking remains the most common cause.

For instance, according to Center of Disease Control and Prevention, it was reported that in 2021, 11.5% of the U.S. adults smoked cigarette. As smoking rates remain high in many parts of the world and air quality continues to deteriorate in densely populated areas, the incidence of emphysema is expected to rise. As the prevalence of emphysema rises, the demand for effective treatments is expected to surge simultaneously. Thus, rise in the global prevalence of emphysema is expected to significantly contribute toward the growth of the emphysema treatment market growth.

Furthermore, developing healthcare infrastructure is expected to drive the emphysema treatment market opportunity. As countries invest in upgrading their healthcare systems, there emerges a greater emphasis on improving diagnostic capabilities, treatment options, and overall patient care. Enhanced infrastructure enables easier access to specialized medical facilities equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic tools such as high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scanners, pulmonary function testing labs, and bronchoscopy units, facilitating early detection and accurate diagnosis of emphysema. Moreover, robust healthcare infrastructure fosters the establishment of specialized clinics and multidisciplinary healthcare teams comprising pulmonologists, respiratory therapists, and rehabilitation specialists, who collaborate to develop tailored treatment plans for emphysema patients. These plans often encompass a combination of pharmacological interventions, such as bronchodilators and corticosteroids, as well as non-pharmacological approaches like oxygen therapy.

In addition, technological advancements in surgical techniques, including minimally invasive procedures like bronchoscopic lung volume reduction and lung transplantation, along with the increasing adoption of the same within developing economies drive the market growth of the emphysema treatment market forecast. Thus, the development in the healthcare infrastructure is expected to drive the emphysema treatment market. 

Moreover, decreasing air quality index has emerged as a significant catalyst of the emphysema treatment market. With air pollution levels on the rise globally, individuals are increasingly exposed to harmful particulate matter and pollutants, exacerbating respiratory conditions like emphysema. Countries in Asia-Pacific have registered significant decrease in the air quality index. For instance, according to 2022 article by the World Bank, it was reported that South Asia is home to 9 of the worlds 10 cities with the worst air pollution, which causes an estimated 2 million premature deaths across the region each year. As the air quality deteriorates, more individuals are diagnosed with emphysema, driving the need for innovative therapies and interventions to alleviate symptoms and improve the quality of life.

Furthermore, rise in R and D activities and new product development are expected to drive the growth of the market. Recent years have seen a surge in innovative therapies and treatment modalities aimed at alleviating symptoms and slowing disease progression. This surge can be attributed to intensified R and D efforts by pharmaceutical companies, biotech firms, and academic institutions, fueled by growing awareness of the disease burden and unmet medical needs. For instance, in April 2022, GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals Limited launched Trelegy Ellipta (fluticasone furoate/umeclidinium/vilanterol), the first single-inhaler triple therapy (SITT) in India for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients in a once-daily regime. These efforts have led to the development of novel medications, advanced inhalation devices, and cutting-edge surgical techniques tailored to address the specific mechanisms underlying emphysema pathology. Thus, rise in R and D activities and new product development are expected to drive emphysema treatment market opportunity.

However, high cost of treatment restrains the growth of the  emphysema treatment market. Emphysema requires comprehensive management strategies that often entail a range of medical interventions. From medication regimens to oxygen therapy and, in severe cases, surgical procedures such as lung volume reduction surgery or lung transplantation, the spectrum of treatment options is broad but expensive. For patients, particularly those without adequate insurance coverage or financial resources, accessing these treatments can be a financial challenge, potentially leading to delayed or inadequate care. Moreover, for healthcare systems grappling with escalating healthcare costs, the financial strain of emphysema treatment adds to the broader challenge of resource allocation and sustainability. Thus, high cost of treatment is a significant challenge for the growth of the market.
