Respiratory devices are medical devices that are used to assist a patient suffering from breathing problems. These devices are used in management and treatment of disorders such as fibrosis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
The global respiratory devices market is estimated to account for US$ 16,878.0 Mn in terms of value in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 34,178.1 Mn by the end of 2027.
Global Respiratory Devices Market: Drivers
High prevalence of COPD and obstructive sleep apnea is expected to propel growth of the global respiratory devices market over the forecast period. For instance, according to a report by Global Initiative for Chronic Obstruction Disease’s 2018 report, COPD is expected to result in 4.5 million global deaths annually by 2030.
Moreover, increasing geriatric population is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, geriatric population is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050, up from 900 million in 2015.
North America region held dominant position in the global respiratory devices market in 2018, accounting for 41.9% share in terms of value, followed by 2027.
Global Respiratory Devices Market: Restraints
Tempering in respiratory devices is expected to hinder growth of the market. For instance, in July 2019, researchers from CyberMDX reported identifying a susceptibility related to the GE Aestiva and GE Aespire devices, which could lead to unauthorized gas composition input, manipulation of barometric pressure settings and anesthetic agent type selection, remote silencing of alarms, and, alteration of date and time settings.
Moreover, high cost of respiratory devices is also expected to hinder growth of the market. For instance, the cost of a primary portable oxygen concentrator ranges between US$ 2,665 and US$ 3,243.
Global Respiratory Devices Market: Opportunities
R&D of multifunctional polymer composites is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global respiratory devices market. For instance, in February 2020, researchers from National Research Institute, Poland, reported development of a multifunctional polymer composite from polypropylene and poly (ethylene terephthalate) for filtering respiratory protective devices.
Increasing number of pre-term births is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, according to March of Dimes 2019 report card, the preterm birth rate in the U.S. reached 10.02% in 2018 from 9.63% in 2015.
Positive airway pressure devices segment in the global respiratory devices market was valued at US$ 4,551.5 Mn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 11,814.6 Mn by 2027 at a CAGR of 11.1% during the forecast period.
Market Trends/Key Takeaways
The market is witnessing development of portable devices for the treatment of ARDS. For instance, in August 2019, researchers from University of Michigan developed a portable device that analyzes a patient’s breath to provide quick and objective results that can help to manage ARDS.
Market players are focused on offering multifunctional devices. For instance, Ventec Life Systems offers VOCSN, an integrated ventilator system that uses one machine to perform mechanical ventilation, oxygen delivery, cough assist, suction, and nebulization.

Respiratory system is a biological system consisting of specific organs and structures used for gas (CO2 and O2) exchange. If there is a problem in functioning of the respiratory system then the condition may lead to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, emphysema, bronchiectasis, asthma, chronic bronchitis or pulmonary fibrosis and others. To treat such conditions several respiratory devices are required, such as positive expiratory pressure, high frequency chest wall oscillation, oral high frequency oscillation, intrapulmonary percussive ventilation, incentive spirometry, and the flutter device. The pulmonary gas exchange is disturbed during general anesthesia, both oxygenation and elimination of carbon dioxide are impaired. The shape of the chest wall alters after the induction of anesthesia-paralysis in recumbent subjects, and its motion during inspiration is also altered. There are several respiratory therapeutic devices used in treating such conditions such as positive expiratory pressure, inhalers, humidifiers, oxygen concentrators, reusable resuscitators, respiratory masks, ventilators, and others.
Restraints of the Global Respiratory Devices Market
Factors such as frequent product recalls affect distribution of the products leading to shortages which affects the growth of the market up to certain extent. Moreover, high cost of respiratory devices is also expected to hinder growth of the market. For instance, the cost of a primary portable oxygen concentrator ranges between US$ 2,665 and US$ 3,243.
