Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Treatment Market

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Treatment Market is driven by the rising prevalence of smoking

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) refers to a group of progressive lung diseases characterized by airflow limitation. The two main conditions included in COPD are chronic bronchitis and emphysema. COPD symptoms include breathlessness, chronic cough, sputum production and wheezing. Smoking is the leading cause of COPD globally and it accelerates the damage to lungs caused by COPD. COPD treatment aims to control symptoms and reduce risks from lung function decline. Prescription medicines for COPD include bronchodilators, corticosteroids and antibiotics. Lung rehabilitation programs and surgery are also beneficial for some patients. The global COPD treatment market play a crucial role in helping patients manage their condition and improve quality of life.

The global Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Treatment Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 20.86 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) treatment market size is the rise of combination inhalers. Combination inhalers contain two or more medicines in single inhaler device. This helps improve patient compliance as patients only need to use single inhaler instead of multiple inhalers. Popular combination inhalers approved for COPD contain long-acting beta2-agonist (LABA) and inhaled corticosteroid (ICS). Combination inhalers have demonstrated better efficacy in reducing COPD exacerbations and improving quality of life compared to single ingredient inhalers. Their uptake is expected to grow significantly in the coming years.
