Respiratory inhaler devices are medical devices are used to assist a patient encountering breathing problems resulting from respiratory disorders such as fibrosis, asthma, COPD and ARDS and others. On the basis of product type, the market has been segmented into dry powder inhaler (DPI), metered dose inhaler (MDI) and nebuliser. Nebuliser is further sub-segmented into compressed air nebuliser, ultrasonic nebuliser and mesh nebuliser.
Market Value and Forecast
In terms of value, the global respiratory inhaler devices market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period. The global respiratory inhaler devices market value is expected to increase to US$ 44,501.0 Mn by 2027 end.
Growth of the global respiratory inhaler devices market is mainly driven by rising prevalence of asthma, chronic respiratory diseases, COPD and other respiratory diseases. However, lack of a single effective inhaler devices for all type of disease indication, side effects and complications during drug inhalation, lack of skilled pulmonologist, physicians and nurses, lack of awareness, coupled with high prices of inhaler devices are factors restraining market growth.
Patients are shifting towards combined therapies due to associated benefits such as more reliable in complex patients, increased efficacy and easy reimbursement policies associated with therapy. Combination therapies cost more compared to conventional therapies for patients with complex indications of respiratory disease. Increase in usage of combination therapies such as triple combination therapy for COPD patients is expected to drive growth of the global respiratory inhaler devices market over the forecast period.
