Cough Systems Market Growth Pursuant to Rising COPD Burden Worldwide

Increasing prevalence of sedentary lifestyle has led to the increasing incidences of tobacco smoking, leading to a spike in respiratory disorders, augmenting growth

Fact.MR, Rockville MD: Fact.MR’s ongoing cough systems market study forecasts a positive growth outlook through 2021 and beyond, as the global burden of respiratory disorders continues to accumulate. Gains were especially immense during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, as 15% of infected individuals’ required hospitalization and oxygen support, with a further 5% of ICU patients require intubation and ventilation therapies.

According to the study, the ever mushrooming burden of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the primary driver behind the increasing cough systems demand. The Global Burden of Disease Study published by the World Health Organization estimates that over 250 million cases of COPD were recorded since 2016, with the primary cause being exposure to tobacco smoke, both active and passive. Over 90% of these cases are reported across low and middle-income countries.

Manufacturers are thus finding immense growth opportunities across these regions. South Africa, which has the highest COPD prevalence worldwide (48.9%), is likely to be the most opportunistic market, besides India and China. Players such as Philips Healthcare have a prominent presence, manufacturing its CoughAssist E70 Insufflator-Exsufflator.

“Manufacturers are concentrating on offering automated cough assist devices, amid the increasing need for improving patient outcomes and reducing trauma, prompting the launch of highly precision based solutions,” says a Fact.MR analyst.
