Respiratory Drugs Market Trends



  • Need for sustainable and safe respiratory drugs is driving the market growth


The demand for safe and sustainable respiratory medications is one of the main drivers boosting the global market for these medications. The main cause of death worldwide is respiratory disease, with COPD ranking third in Western Europe and fourth worldwide. Despite the availability of efficient treatments, many patients experience poor quality of life and poorly controlled respiratory disorders. A few new kinds of pharmacological therapy have been established in the last 40 years for the treatment of respiratory illnesses. Leukotriene receptor antagonists are a novel class of medications, although they are insufficiently successful in reducing asthma symptoms. Overall, the need for new drugs in respiratory medicine is a critical issue that will spur market expansion during the projection period.


The need for novel medications to treat respiratory disorders is projected to increase due to common respiratory infections, greater exposure to indoor and outdoor air pollution and toxins from occupational dust, and a rising smoking population worldwide. During the forecast period, the market for respiratory drugs is expected to grow due to the presence of potent new drugs. Increased R&D spending by major key players and growing consumer acceptance of novel medications for the treatment of various respiratory illnesses are expected to fuel the expansion of the respiratory medicines market over the forecast period. Additionally, it is anticipated that during the forecast period, the demand for drugs to treat respiratory diseases will increase along with the patient population.


The growing elderly population and the prevalence of lung disorders are two factors contributing to the market's expansion. The airways and other areas of the lungs are continuously affected by pulmonary illnesses. In primary health care facilities, one of the most common reasons for doctor and physician consultations is respiratory symptoms. Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), allergic rhinitis, sleep apnea, and tuberculosis (mostly multi-drug resistant tuberculosis) are some of the major chronic respiratory diseases that can be prevented. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America reported in March 2021 that around 1 in 13 Americans, or about 25 million people, have asthma. Thus, driving the Respiratory Drugs market revenue.
