Market Overview

South Africa respiratory devices market is primarily driven by the increasing burden of chronic respiratory diseases such as Asthma, COPD and advancements in product technologies. According to the Global Burden of Disease (GBD)/Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation Study 2017 Report, in 2017 incidence rate (per 100,000) of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in South Africa was found to be 237.26. ​Similarly, as per Global Asthma Report 2018, South Africa is ranked 25th worldwide for asthma prevalence and is ranked fifth for asthma mortality, with an estimated 18.5 deaths per 100,000 asthma cases. Furthermore, factors associated with asthma prevalence and other respiratory diseases in South African include the increasing adoption of an urban lifestyle, coupled with conditions such as atopy, obesity, exposure to industrial pollution or tobacco smoke. The growing burden of these factors is expected to positively impact the market growth in the country. However, the high cost of the devices and lack of awareness and accessibility anticipated to hamper the market growth over the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Spirometers Are Projected to Have Significant Share

  • Spirometers are used in pulmonary tests to measure the air inhaled into and exhaled out of the lungs. They provide a simple way of measuring lung volume and capacity.​
  • Spirometers help in diagnosing respiratory diseases, such as asthma, emphysema, bronchitis, and COPD. Furthermore, they can also be used to assess shortness of breath, lung function before surgery, and the effect of medication.​ This, wide range of indictions of spirometers and advancements in product technologies are driving the segment growth.
  • On the other hand, owing to the pandemic outbreak of COVID-19, the market for ventilators is anticipated to have a huge demand in the short term. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there were a total 1845 corona positive cases as of 9th April 2020. For instance, country authorities have launched the National Ventilator Project (NVP) in an attempt to rapidly develop and produce ventilation solutions for the pandemic. The local manufacturers have ramped up their efforts to produce ventilators in collaboration. Thus the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and the high adoption rate of respiratory devices, the market is anticipated to grow at significant rates.
