Global Respiratory Care Devices Market by Products (Diagnostics Devices, Therapeutic Devices, Monitoring Devices, Consumables and Accessories) by End Users (Hospitals, Ambulatory Care Centers, Home Care) Drivers, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts: 2017-2023
Respiratory diseases are one of the world’s biggest health concerns, causing one-sixth of all deaths worldwide. It is observed that more than 35 million people suffer from some form of the respiratory disorder, and one in six deaths is caused by some kind of chronic lung disease in the US alone. Some of the chronic respiratory diseases are acute respiratory distress syndrome, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary fibrosis, pneumonia, respiratory failure, sleep apnea, lung cancer, tuberculosis, and other respiratory diseases. The devices used for the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of these cardiopulmonary disorders are known as respiratory care devices.
Major driver of the respiratory device market is high smoking global population, which is increasing the disease burden. Smoking causes about 90% of all lung cancer deaths and 80% of all deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is observed that smokers are 12–13 times more likely to die from COPD than the non-smokers. A massive undiagnosed sleep apnea population is expected to provide an opportunity for the growth of the respiratory care devices market in the future.
The “Global Respiratory Care Devices Market” is estimated to witness a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period 2017–2023. The market is analyzed based on three segments – product types, end-users, and regions.
Factors such as rising prevalence of respiratory diseases, huge demand for enhanced portable devices, increasing geriatric population, and high prevalence of tobacco smoking are expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. The market is witnessing the emerging trend of intelligent ventilators, portable PAP devices, smart inhalers, and nebulizers which are helping in providing real-time monitoring and transmission of data to the physicians.
The regions covered in the report are the Americas, EMEA, APAC, and Rest of the World (ROW). The Americas is set to be the leading region for the respiratory care devices market growth followed by Europe. Asia Pacific and ROW are set to be the emerging regions. 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. Alos these countries are set to be the most attractive destinations due to the large untapped market.
