Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. Progressive means the disease gets worse over time. It is a group of diseases which include chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which can result in COPD. A COPD diagnosis means the patient may have one of these lung damaging disease or symptoms COPD can progress gradually, making it increasingly difficult to breathe over time.

COPD happens when the lungs and the airways become damaged and inflamed caused by various factors. It’s usually associated with the long term exposure to harmful substances such as cigarette smoke and exposure to an unhealthy environment. Smoking is the main cause of COPD and is thought to be responsible for around 9 in every 10 cases. The harmful chemicals in smoke can damage the lining of the lungs and airways. Exposure to certain types of dust and chemicals at work may damage the lungs and increase your risk of COPD. COPD makes breathing increasingly more difficult, but it develops slowly over many years and people may not be aware when they have it at first. Most people with COPD do not have any noticeable symptoms until they reach their late 40s and 50s.

Common symptoms of COPD include increasing breathlessness (this may only happen when exercising at first and people may sometimes wake up at night feeling breathless), a persistent chesty cough with phlegm that does not go away, frequent chest infections, and persistent wheezing. The symptoms will usually get gradually worse over time and make daily activities increasingly difficult, although treatment can help slow down the progression. Currently, there is no cure for COPD, but treatment can help slow the progression of the condition and control the symptoms. Several kinds of medications are used to treat the symptoms and complications of COPD. Bronchodilators are the medications that usually come in inhalers. They relax the muscles around airways, which can help relieve coughing and shortness of breath and make breathing easier.  Another medication used for people with severe COPD is roflumilast, a phosphodiesterase 4 inhibitor. Inhaled steroids can also be used to treat COPD, as these are helpful for people with frequent exacerbation of COPD.

Increasing smoking habits among people across the globe has increased the cases of COPD, which, in turn, is boosting the market growth. Genetic disorders caused by alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency is also another driving factor for the COPD treatment market. Rising air pollution across the globe is yet another factor that is increasing the cases of COPD. However, side effects of drugs used for the treatment of COPD may act as a restraint to market growth.

Some impact factors:

  • Increasing cigarette smoking across the globe is the major factor for market growth.
  • Increasing air pollution is also driving the market growth.
  • Many research activities are going on for identifying the molecular targets that are responsible for the disease progression of COPD.
  • Side effects of drugs used for the treatment of COPD may hamper the market growth.
  • People affected with COPD are more likely to get infected with COVID-19 than others, as both diseases are associated with the lungs.
