Respiratory diseases are one of the world’s biggest health concerns, causing one-sixth of all deaths worldwide. Nebulizers are one of the devices that are used for the delivery of liquid drugs in the form of the mist. The nebulizers majorly find its application in asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, pneumonia, and others. The demand for nebulizers is expected to increase for COPD in future due to the rising prevalence of the disease. According to WHO, in 2016, around 15.7 million people suffered from COPD in the US, a 6.4% increase in the incidence rate when compared to 2015.
The nebulizers market is booming due to rising prevalence of respiratory diseases, favorable reimbursement, increasing geriatric population, technological advancements, and increasing demand for home care therapeutic devices. Stringent government regulations for the approval, mandatory licensing for the practitioners, and the availability of alternatives are some of the factors hampering the market growth. The markets in India, Brazil, China, and Japan are expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period as the prevalence of respiratory diseases in these countries is high.
Most of the latest devices are fitted with a sensor that enables real-time monitoring and continuous data transfer of the patient’s condition to physicians. Such kind of smart devices are adopted rapidly in home care conditions. For instance, Vectura has received approval from US FDA for smart device “Akita Jet” to progress asthma treatments in children.
