Global Asthma Devices Market Overview

Asthma Devices Market Size was valued at USD 4.00 Billion in 2023. The Global Asthma Devices industry is projected to grow from USD 4.21 Billion in 2024 to USD 7.45 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.89% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032).Asthma is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that narrows the airways. Asthma causes recurring periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. Mostly, the symptoms associated with asthma are short-lived and can be easily treated. Asthma inhalers are medical devices which deliver medication into the body via the lungs, thereby, treating asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Increasing prevalence of asthma is one of the major drivers for the market growth.


According to the World Health Organization in 2017, approximately 235 million people suffered from asthma. Moreover, it was estimated that in 2015, the disease killed approximately 383 million patients around the globe. Additionally, rising healthcare expenditures and increasing awareness fuel the market growth. However, long treatment procedures and low per capita income followed by lack of favorable reimbursement policies in the developing countries will restrain the market growth during the forecast period. 

The UK-based medical device company Acurable disclosed this in October 2022, saying it was helped to raise $10.8 million by its lead investor for the round, Kibo Ventures. The firm will use the funding to speed up AcuPebble SA100, which is a home-based sleep diagnostic tool that helps identify and track obstructive sleep apnea cases around the world. Moreover, Acurable would develop new drugs for cardiovascular diseases, asthma and COPD.

Adherium Limited has partnered with Trudell Medical Limited in August 2022 to treat U.S. patients with COPD.

A US$350 million Series A funding round was won by Arteria Therapeutics, a biotechnology company committed to helping asthmatics live normal lives in July of 2022. This money was expected by the company to fund phase 3 trials for a new asthma candidate that is said to have biologic-like efficacy in treating asthma through oral delivery.

Alkem launched Innohaler, a DPI device in March 2022 with an aim of improving comfort living for Asthma and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) patients and narrowing the existing gaps in Asthma care across India. The introduction of this device marks Alkem’s entry into core inhalation treatments where it expects better medication will reach the lungs with every inhalation due to increased patient awareness and adherence program.

Life Wellness Healthcare announced an update on their online store that allows individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) be able to reduce their symptoms at home as of January 2022. Payment plans are available when purchasing AirPhysio devices, which are now ready for shipment throughout the United States.

For example, in March 2022, the US Food and Drug Administration approved Symbicort Inhalation Aerosol’s first generic version for treating two common pulmonary conditions, including asthma, among six-year-old and older patients.

For example, a Phase III clinical trial evaluating budesonide/glycopyrronium/formoterol inhalers effectiveness and safety among adults and adolescents who suffer from severe asthma and are inadequately controlled with the standard of care was initiated in March 2021 by AstraZeneca PLC in Mexico and the United States. The trial is expected to be completed in September 2023.
