Respiratory Inhaler Devices Market Segmentation by - Dry Powder Inhalers, Metered Dose Inhaler and Nebulizers: Report

Leave a Comment
Respiratory inhaler is a device that delivers a specific amount of medication to the lungs, in the form of a short burst of aerosolized medicine that is usually self-administered by the patient via inhalation.

It is the most commonly used medication delivery system for treating Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and other respiratory diseases. Asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction and bronchospasm. Common symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. Whereas, COPD is the obstructive lung disease characterized by chronically poor airflow. It typically worsens over time. The main symptoms include shortness of breath, cough, and sputum production. Most people with chronic bronchitis have COPD. The primary cause of COPD is tobacco smoke (through tobacco use or second-hand smoke).

As per WHO, Some 235 million people currently suffer from asthma and more than 3 million people died of COPD in 2012, which is equal to 6% of all deaths globally that year.

Respiratory Inhaler Devices Market: Drivers and Restraints

The respiratory inhaler devices market is driven by aging population and increasing respiratory disease among global population.

Respiratory inhaler devices market will be driven by new technological advancements.
