Global COPD and asthma devices market is expected to reach $41,355.2 million by 2022, according to a new report by Allied Market Research . The drug powder inhaler was the highest revenue-generating segment, accounting for over half of the share in 2015. This segment is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period.
The factors hampering the market growth include environmental concerns associated with metered dose inhalers (MDI) and high cost of selected inhalation devices. Regulatory authorities such as U.S. food and drug administration (USFDA) across several regions have banned the production and sales of MDIs, as they release environmentally hazardous gases such as chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and hydrofluoroalkanes (HFA). Thus, soft mist inhalers (SMIs) and nebulizers are expected to replace MDIs for the treatment of respiratory diseases in the near future.

Compressor nebulizers constitute around four-fifths share of the overall nebulizers market, owing to their perpetual usage in home healthcare medication and widespread availability across various regions. Nebulizers are electric- or battery-powered machines, which dispense the medication in the form of fine mist. They are used in home healthcare set-ups for debilitated patients, geriatric, and children. However, the large size of nebulizers and the need for continuous power supply are expected to hinder the market growth.
