Long-Acting Beta-Agonists Market Introduction
Long-acting beta-agonists or long-acting beta adrenergic receptor agonists are class of drugs used in the management of asthma by relaxing the muscles surrounding the bronchial tubes and facilitating the opening the airways wider. Long-acting beta-agonists have a longer duration of action of at least 12 hours.
Long-Acting Beta-Agonists Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growing demand generated due to increasing incidence of asthma and congestive obstructive pulmonary diseases owing to increasing exposure to risk factors such as growing geriatric and younger population, being overweight, sedentary lifestyles, exposure to allergens and others which is driving a large market.
The lower demand for medication owing to the long duration of action of 12 hours in comparison with the 4 to 5 hour duration of short acting beta agonists, making the long-acting beta-agonists ideal candidates for treating nocturnal and chronic asthma.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), almost 1 in 13 people in the U.S. suffer from asthma representing almost 26 million Americans. In terms of demographics 8.3 percent of adults and 8.3 percent of children suffer from asthma.
The CDC also states that asthma is more common in children than adults, with a prevalence of more than 6 million under the age of 18 in the U.S. In clinical terms asthma is responsible for 14.2 million physicians visits, and 1.8 million emergency visits per year in the U.S. and is the third highest ranking cause of hospitalization among children younger than 15 years.
Speaking in economic terms , asthma costs about $3,266 per patient, which includes the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity. According to the CDC asthma resulted in $50.3 billion in medical costs to the U.S. from 2008-2013, which is a whopping $81.9 billion in annual economic cost.
Thus a large long-acting beta-agonists market is well evident even to an untrained eye. The growing mortality is another driver of the market as in 2015 alone, 3,615 U.S. citizens died from asthma. Technological advancements resulting in product development such as the development of smart inhalers is driving a faster long-acting beta-agonists market adoption.
However, the falling cost of long-acting beta-agonists, competition from alternative drug therapy, and the lower per capita income of the developing world is hampering the long-acting beta-agonists market.
