The emergence of inhaled drug therapy has been a boon for patients with respiratory conditions such as COPD and asthma because of its painless and flexible administration when compared to injections. There are various kinds of inhalation systems available in the market, and these include inhalers and nebulizers. The two most commonly widespread respiratory diseases are asthma and COPD. According to WHO, around 235 million people are currently suffering from asthma, and it is very common in children. Chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD are responsible for substantial financial and health burden in the US, and in 2015, 6.7% deaths in the US were due to chronic respiratory diseases. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is the third leading cause of death across the globe, accounting for approximately 3 million deaths in 2016. State of West Virginia has the highest prevalence of COPD, and around 12% of the population are diagnosed with COPD.
The US inhalation systems market is driven by an upsurge in the prevalence of respiratory diseases, increasing geriatric population, and favorable reimbursement. However, side effects allied with the drug inhalation and unattainability of single effective inhaler device that can treat many disease conditions may slow down the growth of the market in the US.
