Spirometer Market Size

Spirometer Market size was valued at around USD 1 billion in 2023 and is estimated to grow at over 9.6% CAGR from 2024 to 2032. The increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases coupled with the rising demand for home healthcare services are key factors driving market growth.

Spirometer Market

The market is anticipated to witness consistent growth, fueled by factors including rise in chronic respiratory conditions such as asthma, COPD, occupational lung diseases, and pulmonary hypertension. COPD and asthma, in particular, pose a significant burden on global public health, characterized by notable prevalence rates and consequential morbidity and mortality. For instance, Lancet, a renowned medical journal, highlights that the most widespread chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs) globally are COPD and asthma, with a prevalence of 3.9% and 3.6% respectively.

Furthermore, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported U.S. data, indicating that 4.6% of adults are diagnosed with COPD, emphysema, or chronic bronchitis in 2022. The rising prevalence of these conditions underscores the growing necessity for precise diagnostic tools concerning respiratory illnesses, thus driving the demand for spirometers in the market.

A spirometer is a medical device used to measure the volume of air inspired and expired by the lungs during breathing. It assesses lung function by measuring various parameters such as lung capacity, volume, and airflow rates.

Spirometer Market Trends

Technological advancements in spirometers have contributed to an increase in demand for these devices. The integration of sensor technology, wireless connectivity, and other similar features into these devices aims to enhance their portability, cost-effectiveness, and user-friendliness, thereby anticipating a surge in demand for such devices.

  • Manufacturers are focusing on producing smaller, lighter, and more affordable spirometers suitable for home use and fieldworks by incorporating advanced technology. For instance, portable spirometers are evolving with integrated wireless connectivity options like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and cellular connections, facilitating seamless data transfer and analysis.
  • Furthermore, some companies are introducing remote mobile spirometer systems, enabling centralized data collection and analysis. The integration of these features into devices enhances efficiency and streamlines procedures, anticipating rise in demand for such devices.
  • Another development and innovation in the devices are incorporation of sensors, for instance, triboelectric spirometers. These spirometers harness the triboelectric effect to gauge airflow, presenting a cost-effective, portable, and user-friendly alternative to conventional models.
  • Moreover, the incorporation of differential pressure sensors in the devices can be done to measure pressure changes induced by airflow, facilitating the calculation of flow rates. These innovative advancements in spirometer technology have the potential to stimulate growth in the market for such devices.

Spirometer Market Analysis

Spirometer Market, By Product, 2021 – 2032 (USD Million)

Based on product, the market is segmented into devices, software, and consumables & accessories. The devices segment held leading revenue share in 2023 and is anticipated to reach USD 1.4 billion by 2032.

  • Spirometers are the primary tools used for measuring lung function and diagnosing respiratory conditions. They directly facilitate the collection of vital data related to airflow, lung volume, and respiratory parameters during the  spirometry testing. Hence, owing to aforementioned core functionally of the devices, they are projected to be the primary factor to propel the segment expansion.  
  • Additionally, spirometer devices typically have longer lifespans and lower replacement frequencies compared to consumables or software. The core spirometer device may last for several years with proper maintenance. This longer replacement cycle contributes to their cost effectiveness and sustained demand among healthcare professionals and patients.


Spirometer Market, By Technology (2023)

Based on technology, the spirometer market is segmented into volume measurement, flow measurement, and peak flow meters. The volume measurement segment held leading revenue share in 2023 and is anticipated to reach USD 1 billion by 2032.

  • Volume measurement spirometers offer direct assessments of lung volumes and capacities, crucial for precise evaluation of respiratory function. These features attract the attention of healthcare professionals as they depend on these measurements to accurately diagnose and monitor respiratory ailments like asthma, COPD, and restrictive lung diseases, resulting in the segment growth.
  • Additionally, volume measured technology enabled spirometers are endorsed by professional organizations and guidelines, making them necessary and most utilized in clinical settings, including hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic laboratories, for routine respiratory disease testing and evaluation. Their widespread necessity and utilization in such facilities are propelling and distinguishing them as the preferred choice in healthcare settings.

Based on application, the spirometer market is segmented into asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary fibrosis, and other applications. The COPD segment held leading revenue share in 2023 and is anticipated to reach USD 964 million by 2032.

  • COPD predominantly affects older adults, and as the global population continues to age, the prevalence of COPD is expected to rise. Age-related changes in lung structure and function, combined with cumulative exposure to risk factors over time, contribute to the increasing burden of COPD among older individuals and necessitates the diagnostic testing among them.
  • Additionally, sedentary lifestyles, poor dietary habits, smoking habits and increasing rates of obesity can contribute to the development and exacerbation of COPD. Cigarette smoking is among the primary cause of COPD, accounting for approximately 80-90% of all COPD cases. These lifestyle factors can lead to increased burden of COPD and anticipated to propel the demand for spirometers.

The spirometer market by end-use is categorized into hospitals and clinics, homecare settings, clinical laboratories, and other end users. The hospitals and clinics segment dominates the market with a revenue of around USD 555 million in 2023.

  • Hospitals and clinics offer comprehensive healthcare services, including specialized testing and procedures. Spirometry testing is often conducted as part of routine health assessments or in response to respiratory symptoms, allowing healthcare providers to assess lung function and tailor treatment plans accordingly. These comprehensive care plans provided by hospitals makes them the primary end users of spirometers.
  • Moreover, hospitals and clinics often serve as centers for medical research and education, where healthcare professionals conduct studies and train future generations of clinicians. Spirometry data collected in these settings contribute to research efforts aimed at advancing the understanding of respiratory diseases and improving treatment strategies. Hence hospitals and clinics are anticipated to be the dominant end users of spirometers.


North America Spirometer Market, 2020 – 2032 (USD Million)

North America spirometer market accounted for USD 368.9 million revenue in 2023 and is predicted to witness substantial market growth.

  • In North America, access to healthcare services and insurance coverage are relatively better compared to other regions. This facilitates routine respiratory testing, including spirometry, in clinical settings such as hospitals, clinics, and primary care practices, anticipating driving the demand for spirometers in the region.
  • Furthermore, North America is home to leading academic institutions, research centers, and medical schools that conduct studies and provide education in respiratory medicine. As a result, there is a continuous demand for spirometers in North America to support research initiatives, education in respiratory medicine, and the implementation of evidence-based practices in clinical settings.
