Asthma And COPD Drugs Market By Drug Type (Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, Bronchodilator Monotherapy, Combination Drugs, Pipeline Analysis) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis 2017 – 2025

Asthma is chronic respiratory disease that causes inflammation of narrowing of airways. COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a lung disease that makes breathing difficult including chronic bronchitis and emphysema and that gets worse with time. COPD is one of the leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide, with prevalence rate of 5-13%. Prevalence rate is directly proportional to increase in smoking rates and air population, especially in developing countries. Both for asthma and COPD, new pharmacologic options have being explored, by focusing on specific biological mechanisms knowing the pathogenesis of these diseases. Thus, with entrant of novel drugs may offer better treatment options. Though the generic entry of drug might affect the market, slowing the growth of the market. With key players innovating novel combination therapies, use of biologics, personalization treatment would drive the asthma and COPD drugs market.

Asthma And COPD Drugs Market

Based on the type of drugs, the global asthma and COPD market is segmented as follows:

  • Anti-inflammatory drugs
    • Corticosteroids
    • Anti-Leukotrienes
    • Monoclonal antibodies
  • Bronchodilator monotherapy
    • Short-acting beta2-agonist (SABAs)
    • Long-acting beta2-agonist (LABAs)
    • Anticholinergics
  • Combination drugs

Currently treatment available for asthma and COPD includes anti-inflammatory drugs bronchodilator monotherapy and combination therapy, among which combination therapy dominates the market. The most favoured combination preferred for treatment are long-acting beta2 agonist (LABA)/ inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) combination that include Symbicort (AstraZeneca), Advair (GlaxoSmithKline). The combination most preferred due to better efficacy and convenient delivery mechanism, and decreased side effects. Singulair, Seretide and Spiriva are commonly used medication for treatment of asthma and COPD in the US and Europe. Further, with increase in use of corticosteroids in combination with bronchodilators would drive the treatment market of asthma and COPD. Recent treatments such as combination products once-a-daily and monoclonal antibodies will create new growth opportunity for the market. There are many undergoing studies at various stage of development in pipeline. Pharmaceutical companies have being investing heavily in research and development of new biologics with help of biotechnology which would create immense market opportunities for sustainable development of the asthma and COPD market. Novartis' immunoglobulin E (IgE) inhibitor Xolair (omalizumab) is the only biologics available in the market currently for treatment of asthma. Benralizumab Astrazenca’s first biologics is expected to enter the market next year that would create new wave for use of biologics for treatment of asthma.

Asthma And COPD Drugs Market

For the purpose of this study, the global asthma and COPD market is geographically categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

Asthma And COPD Drugs Market

At present, North America dominates the global asthma and COPD market followed by the European market. The major drivers for the North American market are rising prevalence of asthma and COPD, technological advancements in treatment, delay in the influx of generics, and strong pipeline of novel therapies. Prevalence of asthma and COPD is increasing in developed countries due to smoking, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, genetic factors, etc. Rise in the demand of the treatment and high cost of treatment also contribute to market growth. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. In emerging countries such as China, India, and others there is increase in the incidences of asthma and other respiratory diseases due to rise in pollution, urbanization, sedentary lifestyle, and prolonged life expectancy.
