Asthma is a chronic disease condition, in which the airways in lungs get swelled and narrowed due to production of extra mucus, which results in difficulty in breathing. Spacers are tube like devices, which are attached to inhalers and used for administering aerosolized medication. Spacers help medication to reach the diseased area of lungs with minimal contact with mouth and throat, which might cause irritations and mild infections. These spacers (with metered dose inhalers) are used for treating several respiratory diseases such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Global Asthma Spacers Market Drivers
Increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases is expected to drive the global asthma spacers market growth over the forecast period. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2017, around 65 million people suffered from moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), among which 3 million die every year. In 2016, National Jewish Health reported that due to incorrect handling of asthma inhalers it may lead to serious complication such as asthma attack, because medication will not reach to their lungs in required amount. To overcome these problems, doctors recommend to use spacers. These factors are responsible for driving the global asthma spacers market growth.
Flovent HFA asthma inhaler of Glaxo Smith Kline (GSK) can be used with asthma spacers for convenient treatment of asthma, such factors may increase need for asthma spacer, and is expected to boost the global asthma spacers market growth. Several organizations such as Asthma and Allergy foundation of America, Asthma Australia, and National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in the U.S. have initiated several awareness programs such as Asthma and Allergy Awareness Campaigns, Asthma Awareness Session, and National Asthma Education and Prevention Program, respectively, for providing information about the causes and prevention of asthma, which created awareness among people about chronic and incurable diseases. Such initiatives are expected to propel the global asthma spacers market growth.
