When a disease becomes common, and the number of people suffering from it goes up, so does the market offering treatment for it. The major factor driving the growth of market COPD treatment is the increasing number of adult smokers. Due to environmental pollution, the number of rapidly growing asthma patients is increasing the growth of the COPD market.

Market Research Future (MRFR) has published a research report about the global Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Market Share that measures huge elevation in this market between 2016 and 2022. This report provides a detailed analysis of market structure with the forecast for next years and provides insights into factors affecting the market growth. Analyzing the market on the basis of various factors, it evaluates the market with current market size and future potential regarding growth. Profiling various key players in the market, the report discusses their activities and observes competitive developments like joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, new product developments, strategic alliances, and research and developments (R & D).

The global chronic obstructive pulmonary disease market has been segmented into medicines, treatments, types, and lastly region. On the basis of medicines, this market has been segmented into antibiotics, bronchodilators, combination inhalers, inhaled steroids, oral steroids, phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitors, and theophylline. Antibiotics are useful for fighting bacterial infections. Bronchodilators are medications that open (dilate) the airways (bronchial tubes) of the lung by relaxing bronchial muscles. They allow people with difficulty in breathing to breathe better. A combination inhaler combines two kinds of medicine in one device. Usually, in a combination inhaler, one medicine is corticosteroid while the other is a bronchodilator. Advair Diskus, Breo, Dulera, and Symbicort are some examples of combination inhalers. Some examples of inhaled steroids include Arnuity Ellipta, Flovent, Pulmicort, Qvar, and Symbicort are some examples of inhaled steroids. Oral steroids are the non-narcotic type of powerful prescription medication. Commonly called as a PDE4 inhibitor, phosphodiesterase type 4 inhibitor, is a drug used to block the degradative action of phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4).

The treatment-based segmentation of market comprises of oxygen therapy, lung transplant, bullectomy and others. Bullectomy is the surgical process for the removal of a bulla, which is a dilated air space in the lung parenchyma. A bulla measures more than 1 cm. Bulla that occupies more than 30% of the hemithorax is called giant bulla. Bulla is the most common cause of COPD. In oxygen therapy, oxygen is used for medical treatment. Lung transplant is a medical process where a permanently damaged lung of a patient is removed, and a healthy lung from another person is planted into the body of the patient. By types, the global COPD market has been segmented into chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Chronic Bronchitis (CB) is defined as a chronic cough and sputum production for at least 3 months a year for 2 consecutive years. Emphysema is a lung condition that causes shortness of breath.

The regional segmentation of global chronic obstructive pulmonary disease market covers The Americas (North America & South Americas), Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa (MEA). Among the Americas, North America is the bigger market for COPD, than South America due to advanced medical facilities and more investment in this region, the biggest local markets are the United States of America (USA) and Canada. North America is the largest market among all regional markets.

Due to the reasons same as the Americas, Western Europe is the bigger market, than Eastern Europe. Although the market in whole Europe is decent and steady in Western Europe, the cream of Europe market in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom (UK). Europe is the second largest market for COPD.

In the Asia Pacific region, the market is growing due to the high density of population and improving medical facilities in some countries of this region. During the forecast period, Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market for COPD. The biggest markets in the Asia Pacific are Australia, China, India, Japan, and South Korea, followed by the rest of the Asia Pacific. In the MEA region, the market is small due to poor or limited infrastructure and less investment in health care. However, due to hookah smoking, the number of people suffering from COPD is sizable. In this region, the biggest markets are Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar.
