Report Overview

The global therapeutic respiratory devices market size was valued at USD 10.3 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2022 to 2030. Growing geriatric population base, rising prevalence of respiratory diseases, and rapid technological advancements are the factors accelerating market growth. Furthermore, rising adoption of therapeutic respiratory devices such as nebulizers, humidifiers, and oxygen concentrators are expected to fuel the growth of the market. The increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases such as sleep apnea, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disorder is expected to drive the growth of the market. According to the WHO estimates, 3.2 million people died from moderate to severe COPD globally in 2019. Moreover, as per the WHO estimates, COPD is predicted to be the third leading cause of death worldwide.

North America therapeutic respiratory devices market size, by product type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The rising need for emergency treatment for protracted treatment and prolonged illnesses associated with lung diseases in children as well as adults is expected to drive the growth of the market. According to a survey conducted by the National Library of Medicine, in 2020, an estimated 2,600 thousand people in France were suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and around 5,500 thousand people were suffering from tuberculosis in 2020.

Respiratory therapeutic devices are more preferred by physicians and patients for the treatment of respiratory disorders as these devices provide medical intervention in acute as well as chronic patient care. According to American Lung Association, there were approximately 9.0 million adults aged over 18 reported to have COPD in the U.S. in 2018 and 2.0 million adults were suffering from emphysema in 2018 in the U.S. Moreover, according to WHO estimates, potentially fatal respiratory diseases, including COPD, tuberculosis, and lung cancer will account for about one in five deaths worldwide by 2030.

The growing prevalence of sleep apnea is also the most significant growth driver of this market. According to the statistics published by the National Sleep Foundation, around 70.0 million Americans were affected by chronic sleep disorders in 2016. Moreover, the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea was calculated at 12 million in the U.S. with a diagnosis rate of approximately one in 22. The prevalence of this disease is expected to constantly rise during the forecast period, owing to the growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, and obesity. Such factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the market.

The increasing cases of respiratory diseases globally are one of the major factors driving the market for therapeutic respiratory devices. According to the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Global Atlas of Asthma 2021, more than 350 million patients around the world are suffering from asthma. The aging population and rising urbanization along with environmental and lifestyle changes trigger respiratory diseases.

The COVID-19 outbreak caused due to SARS-CoV-2, already affected millions of people globally as of November 2021. The contagious coronavirus is also having an economic impact and implications on most of the sectors including the medical device industry. Furthermore, there is a rising trend of using e-cigarettes in early adolescents and middle-aged people. The increasing number of smokers and smoking-related respiratory disorders are becoming more common. Thus, increasing cases of different types of respiratory diseases and technological advancements in therapeutic devices fuels the market share.

Product Type Insights

The positive airway pressure devices segment dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of more than 58.0% in 2021 and is anticipated to register the fastest growth in the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing incidences of obstructive sleep apnea that are responsible for the growth of this segment. This is attributed to lifestyle-associated factors such as obesity, alcohol consumption, smoking, and conditions such as craniofacial abnormalities. According to the National Library of Medicine, in 2020, 26% of the total population in the U.S. is reported to have obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. Increasing use of these devices by the geriatric patient base is also responsible for the growth of the market.

Technology Insights

The HEPA filter technology segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for a revenue share of more than 30.0%. High efficiency particulate air filters are employed for particle removal and retention in different therapeutic respiratory devices. As per the CDC guidelines, the therapeutic devices must be equipped with HEPA filtration technology for air filtration. The prevalence of respiratory diseases and their transmission are among the factors that drive the demand for HEPA filter technology. As per the U.S. States Department of Energy (DOE), HEPA filters remove 99.97% of all particles that are greater than 0.3 microns. The technological advancements in the segment are expected to produce a positive impact on the market in the next seven years. These advancements include washable HEPA filters and HEPA 4 technology, which has the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating of the filter. It is used to rate the ability of air filters to remove particulate matter from the air.

Filters Insights

The humidifier filters segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 13.0% during the forecast period due to their rising demand for various therapeutic applications. The rising demand for humidifiers in hospitals, schools, homes, and healthcare entities is expected to boost the growth of the humidifier filters segment as filters are needed to prevent the growth of mold, mildew, fungi, and bacteria in the circulating air. Moreover, the increased prevalence of airborne infections such as tuberculosis leads to a rise in demand for filters in humidifiers, thus affecting the segment growth positively.

Global therapeutic respiratory devices market share, by filters, 2021 (%)

The ventilator filter segment is also expected to witness significant growth over the projected period, as it plays a vital role in protecting the safety of patients on mechanical ventilation and reducing the risk of cross-contamination. Furthermore, high demand during the COVID-19 pandemic also contributed to its market size in 2021.  Some of the players in this segment include Medtronic and Omnia Health, among others.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of 51.8% in 2021 owing to the presence of a large geriatric population base and the rising prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases. Furthermore, the major share of the market in North America is due to the availability of reimbursement in U.S. healthcare centers accounts, increasing healthcare awareness, improvement in healthcare infrastructure, increased number of outpatient surgeries, and economic growth favored by broadening insurance coverage.

The government health plans such as Medicaid and Medicare aided by CMS also drive the growth of the therapeutic respiratory devices market in this region. These health plans cover respiratory therapy using respiratory devices such as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure devices for the treatment of COPD and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The increasing number of hospitals in North America and rising government funding to the hospitals is accelerating market growth. According to an article published by American Hospital Association, number of hospitals has raised from 6,146 in 2018 to 6,210 in 2019 in the U.S. Technologically advanced devices are being used extensively in hospitals to provide better treatment to patients.

In Asia Pacific, the market is expected to exhibit the fastest growth during the forecast period owing to factors such as the rising prevalence of asthma in adults as well as children and technological advancements. According to statistics released by the Global Initiative for Asthma, it is expected that there will be an increase of an additional 100 million persons with asthma by 2025. Moreover, the increasing need for home healthcare institutions is also a high impact rendering driver of this market in this region. Furthermore, rising disposable incomes and lifestyle-associated changes are also responsible for the significant growth rate in this region over the forecast period.
