Key Market Trends

Inhalers as Therapeutic devices are expected to Register High Growth in the Forecast Period

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was the leading cause of death in Italy and is highly prevalent in the elderly population. As per a 2019 report by Francesco Blasi et al., published in the Journal of Human Vaccines & Immunotherapeutics, the prevalence of COPD could range from 3.3% in adults aged between 20 and 44 years to 13.3% in those aged between 65 and 84 years. Moreover, the geriatric population of Italy is also increasing, which is expected to exacerbate the problem.
  • Inhalers are a mainstay of treatment for the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). These medications are inhaled through your mouth so they can directly reach your lungs. Usually, a combination of inhalers is prescribed. Using different types of inhalers can enhance treatment. As a result, inhalers for therapeutic administration are vital. As COPD is one of the leading causes of death in Italy, the demand for inhalers is expected to increase. This is expected to help the market growth.
