Research Methodology

A three-pronged approach was followed for deducing the nebulizer market estimates and forecasts. The process has three steps: information procurement, analysis, and validation. The whole process is cyclical, and steps repeat until the estimates are validated. The three steps are explained in detail below:

Information procurement: Information procurement is one of the most extensive and important stages in our research process, and quality data is critical for accurate analysis. We followed a multi-channel data collection process for nebulizer market to gather the most reliable and current information possible.

  • We buy access to paid databases such as Hoover’s and Factiva for company financials, industry information, white papers, industry journals, SME journals, and more.
  • We tap into Grand View’s proprietary database of data points and insights from active and archived monitoring and reporting.
  • We conduct primary research with industry experts through questionnaires and one-on-one phone interviews.
  • We pull from reliable secondary sources such as white papers and government statistics, published by organizations like WHO, NGOs, World Bank, etc., Key Opinion Leaders (KoL) publications, company filings, investor documents, and more.
  • We purchase and review investor analyst reports, broker reports, academic commentary, government quotes, and wealth management publications for insightful third-party perspectives.

Analysis: We mine the data collected to establish baselines for forecasting, identify trends and opportunities, gain insight into consumer demographics and drivers, and so much more. We utilized different methods of nebulizer market data depending on the type of information we’re trying to uncover in our research.

  • Market Research Efforts: Bottom-up Approach for estimating and forecasting demand size and opportunity, top-down Approach for new product forecasting and penetration, and combined approach of both Bottom-up and Top-down for full coverage analysis.

  • Value-Chain-Based Sizing & Forecasting: Supply-side estimates for understanding potential revenue through competitive benchmarking, forecasting, and penetration modeling.

  • Demand-side estimates for identifying parent and ancillary markets, segment modeling, and heuristic forecasting.

  • Qualitative Functional Deployment (QFD) Modelling for market share assessment.

Market formulation and validation: We mine the data collected to establish baselines for forecasting, identify trends and opportunities, gain insight into consumer demographics and drivers, and so much more. We utilize different methods of data analysis depending on the type of information we’re trying to uncover in our research.

  • Market Formulation: This step involves the finalization of market numbers. This step on an internal level is designed to manage outputs from the Data Analysis step.

  • Data Normalization: The final market estimates and forecasts are then aligned and sent to industry experts, in-panel quality control managers for validation.

  • This step also entails the finalization of the report scope and data representation pattern.

  • Validation: The process entails multiple levels of validation. All these steps run in parallel, and the study is forwarded for publishing only if all three levels render validated results.

Nebulizer Market Categorization:

The nebulizer market was categorized into four segments, namely type (Jet, Mesh, Ultrasonic), application (COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, Asthma), end-use (Hospitals And Clinics, Emergency Centers, Home Healthcare), and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa).

Segment Market Methodology:

The nebulizer market was segmented into type, application, end-use, and regions. The demand at a segment level was deduced using a funnel method. Concepts like the TAM, SAM, SOM, etc., were put into practice to understand the demand. We at GVR deploy three methods to deduce market estimates and determine forecasts. These methods are explained below:

Market research approaches: Bottom-up

  • Demand estimation of each product across countries/regions summed up to from the total market.

  • Variable analysis for demand forecast.

  • Demand estimation via analyzing paid database, and company financials either via annual reports or paid database.

  • Primary interviews for data revalidation and insight collection.

Market research approaches: Top-down

  • Used extensively for new product forecasting or analyzing penetration levels.

  • Tool used invoice product flow and penetration models Use of regression multi-variant analysis for forecasting Involves extensive use of paid and public databases.

  • Primary interviews and vendor-based primary research for variable impact analysis.

Market research approaches: Combined

  • This is the most common method. We apply concepts from both the top-down and bottom-up approaches to arrive at a viable conclusion.

Regional Market Methodology:

The nebulizer market was analyzed at a regional level. The globe was divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa, keeping in focus variables like consumption patterns, export-import regulations, consumer expectations, etc. These regions were further divided into twenty-three countries, namely, the U.S.; Canada; Germany; the UK; France; Italy; Spain; Denmark, Sweden, Norway, China; Japan; India; Thailand; Australia; South Korea; Brazil; Mexico; Argentina; South Africa; Saudi Arabia; UAE; Kuwait.

All three above-mentioned market research methodologies were applied to arrive at regional-level conclusions. The regions were then summed up to form the global market.
