The prevalence of respiratory diseases is increasing owing to the urbanization. Along with this, technological innovation and increasing adoption of respiratory therapeutic devices are some other factors that will increase the demand for therapeutic respiratory devices. Also, World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus outbreak as a public health emergency in January 2020.

Since then, the number of people suffering from respiratory diseases has increased exponentially. The impact of COVID-19 on the therapeutic respiratory devices industry is observed to be positive. This is because the virus mainly attacks the respiratory system of a person. The market forged ahead with the rise in the number of cases resulting in a positive impact.

Therapeutic respiratory devices (TRDs) are used to improve pulmonary function, increase lung oxygenation, and aid in airway clearance by removing mucus from the bronchi. Doctors or physicians recommend therapeutic respiratory devices for the treatment of respiratory disorders because they help patients with both acute and chronic conditions. These devices require little maintenance and are simple to use.

Therapeutic respiratory devices are quick to deploy and aid in proper patient care. The market demand for therapeutic respiratory devices is increasing as a result of ongoing technological advancements.

Increase in incidences of respiratory diseases globally will upsurge the market growth over the analysis period

The global increase in the cases of respiratory diseases is one of the major factors that is driving the therapeutic respiratory devices market growth. According to the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Global Atlas of Asthma 2021, more than 350 million patients around the world are suffering from asthma. Aging population and rising urbanization along with environmental and lifestyle changes trigger respiratory diseases.

Furthermore, there is a rising trend of using e-cigarettes in early adolescents and middle-aged people. The increasing number of smokers and smoking-related respiratory disorders are becoming more common. Thus, the rise in cases of various types of respiratory diseases and technological advancements in therapeutic devices will propel the therapeutic respiratory devices market share.

By application, the market is fragmented into COPD, obstructive sleep apnea, asthma, respiratory distress syndrome, cystic fibrosis, and others. Among them, the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) segment accounted for USD 12.6 billion in 2021 owing to the rising geriatric population along with increasing air pollution in urban areas.

For instance, according to Sixth Annual COPD In America Survey, till 2020, it is estimated that more than 250 million people worldwide suffer from COPD because rise in exposure of smoke, and toxic particles. Furthermore, working with chemicals, dust and fumes further leads to inhalation of second-hand smoke. Moreover, new product launches to aid COPD cases will further propel the segmental growth.

For instance, in November 2021, Cipla launched Spirofy, a portable, wireless spirometer. The device has bacterial and viral filters making it suitable for use in outdoor camps and remote regions with power shortages.

Rising hospital visits for proper treatment will boost the overall industry progression

The therapeutic respiratory devices market based on the end-use is divided into hospitals, homecare settings and emergency centers. The hospitals segment accounted for around USD 17 billion in 2021 owing to the increasing healthcare expenditure to provide a proper diagnosis, treatment, and improved patient care in hospitals.

Furthermore, hospitals have trained professionals along with strong financials to purchase expensive medical devices. COVID-19 has also positively impacted the hospital segment. Also, according to data published by Public Health England in 2019, lung disease accounts for 700,000 hospital admissions every year. This rise in the number of diagnoses and treatments in hospitals will flourish the market growth. Such factors increase the demand for therapeutic respiratory devices in hospitals.
