Nebulizers Market to Account for US$937.7 mn by 2019, Pneumatic Nebulizers Lead Growth

Nebulizer is a medical device which can convert the liquid medication into mist or aerosol. Nebulizer is primarily utilized for the treatment of respiratory diseases such as asthma, COPD and cystic fibrosis. Increasing prevalence of asthma, COPD and cystic fibrosis drives the global nebulizers market. Moreover, increasing geriatric population also accentuates the global market for nebulizers. In addition, rising government initiatives in developed nations such as U.S, U.K and Japan also supports the growth of this market. The global nebulizers market was valued at USD 610.0 million in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2013 to 2019, to reach an estimated value of USD 937.7 million by 2019.

A nebulizer is a medical device that converts liquids into a fine spray that can be easily inhaled by a patient to allow the drug to reach the respiratory tract. Nebulizers are most commonly used by asthma patients. Over the years, nebulizers have evolved in design and compactness to allow easier administration of drugs to patients. However, one major drawback with the design of nebulizers, which hasn’t been effectively addressed to date, is that a substantial amount of the drug is lost during delivery. TMR analysts say that this will restrain the growth of the global nebulizers market to some extent.

New opportunities are emerging in the Asia Pacific region for companies in the global nebulizers market. A staggeringly high number of people in regions such as Asia Pacific and Latin America suffer from COPD owing to the high pollution levels and other environmental factors here. Investments in these regions are thus expected to fetch good returns.

The report conducts a segment-wise analysis of the global nebulizers market. To do this, TMR analysts have segmented the market on the basis of product type and geography. The types of nebulizers studied in the report include: ultrasonic nebulizer, pneumatic nebulizer, and mesh nebulizer. The findings of the report show that pneumatic nebulizers held the largest share in the global nebulizers market by product type in 2012. These nebulizers are easy to carry and use, making them convenient for patients of different ages. Of the two types of pneumatic nebulizers – breath-actuated and vented – the share of the former was the highest in 2012. The breath-actuated pneumatic nebulizers segment is also expected to expand at the highest CAGR over the forecast period.
