Global COPD and asthma devices market would reach $34.3 billionby 2020

Considering the growth and market size, Dry Powder Inhalers (DPIs) will be the most lucrative market segment of the COPD and Asthma devices (inhalers) market by 2020. Metered Dose Inhalers (MDIs) are the largest revenue generating segment currently and would maintain the stand till 2020.The need for urgency in medication and portability of the drug delivery devices will drive the growth for COPD and Asthma devices. Despite notable advantages of the COPD and Asthma devices, some factors such as environmental concerns are likely to impede the growth of COPD and Asthma devices market. It is observed that the inhalers, particularly the MDIs, release environmentally-hazardous gases, namely chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and hydrofluoroalkanes (HFA), which is negatively impacting growth of the MDIs segment. Consumption pattern will shift to better alternatives, namely the DPIs. The Soft Mist Inhalers (SMIs), which are another type of inhalers, deliver metered dosage of medication as a soft mist. Such form of drug delivery is ~65% to 80% more efficacious than its peers and will eventually display higher growth as compared to its peers.

Nebulizers, electric or battery powered machines that dispense medication as a fine mist, are ideal for home healthcare set-up for debilitated patients, geriatrics and children. Nebulizers segment thus holds about 13% of the global COPD and Asthma devices market; however, the nebulizers market is forecast to have diminishing growth through 2020 as nebulizers are rendered ineffectual, as POC or portable COPD and Asthma devices due to its larger set up.

Within the nebulizers segment markets, compressor nebulizers would be most lucrative, growing at 7% CAGR during the forecast period and compressor nebulizers would garner 81.5% market share by 2020
Specific focus to achieve product differentiation and thus gain competitive advantage drives the development of new product variants of COPD and Asthma devices.
