Follow us on LinkedIn – Respiratory care market occupies a significant position in the pharmaceutical sector, as respiratory dysfunction is among the most widespread healthcare problem globally. The incidence of respiratory conditions is further fueled by an expanding global population and growing industrialization. Products offered by the respiratory care industry are mainly used to examine, monitor, and treat respiratory ailments that may occur due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), trauma, or other diseased conditions that restrict the normal breathing capability of the affected person. Novel drugs and sophisticated equipment, with considerably higher treatment costs are likely to find favor in developed countries, while older devices continue to enjoy strong position in developing countries. Global respiratory care equipment and supplies market is currently on a recovery mode, after witnessing a slowdown owing to the global economic downturn in recent years. The market stands to gain from the strong demand emanating developing regions of Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East. Growing awareness of sleep apnea and other sleep related diseases is likely to boost overall demand for the respiratory equipment market.
As stated by the new market research report on Respiratory Care Equipment and Supplies, the US continues to remain the largest regional market.
