At 8.6% CAGR, the Europe Respiratory Care Devices Market is speculated to be worth US$ 9,179.17 million by 2028, says Business Market Insights           

According to Business Market Insights’ research, the Europe respiratory care devices market   was valued at US$ 5,587.97 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 9,179.17 million by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 8.6% from 2022 to 2028. Increasing prevalence of infectious respiratory diseases, rapidly increasing cases of asthma and COPD, rising number of product launches and approvals and growing r&d investment for respiratory care devices are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.                  

Infectious respiratory diseases are creating a rising burden on the healthcare system worldwide. Infectious respiratory disease can be induced due to several factors associated with immune deficiency. Most infectious respiratory diseases are spread from person to person through mucus and saliva and are caused by microorganisms that can infect the respiratory system. The severity of contagious respiratory diseases ranges from mild to severe. Infectious respiratory diseases consist of an exhaustive list of diseases, such as tuberculosis (TB), COVID-19, influenza, diphtheria, measles, pneumonia, pertussis, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), etc. In recent years, the COVID-19 recorded the highest mortality rate. Among the above-mentioned infectious respiratory diseases, TB was on the top of the list for high prevalence before the COVID-19 pandemic. With the TB patient pool increasing, the demand for respiratory care devices used during TB treatment increases. For instance, masks, respirators, nebulizers, polysomnography devices, BiPAP devices, etc., are highly used during and post TB treatment. Thus, the increasing cases of TB lead to an increased usage of respiratory care devices and drive the market growth. In recent years, COVID-19 has taken a significant place in the list of infectious respiratory diseases and accounted for the greatest number of deaths. The rising number of COVID-19 cases caused profound disruption and led to a high mortality rate. Additionally; The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is historic and pushed the medical R&D sector to a new, rapidly moving pace. For instance, in May 2020, McKinsey & Company surveyed COVID-19 implications for life sciences R&D. For the survey, 300 R&D functional leaders were convened as a respondent to explore the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on the medical R&D sector. The survey outcome revealed that R&D spent an average of 40-50% of their time on crisis management. The figure rises to 80% for contract manufacturing organizations (CMO) and other medical leaders. Due to the high usage of nebulizers in these infectious respiratory diseases, the demand for nebulizers has rapidly grown in the last few years, eventually propelling the respiratory care devices market. Many pharmaceuticals focus on developing effective therapies which can be administered via nebulizers. For instance, in May 2021, Vectura and Inspira Pharmaceutical announced a collaboration to establish a potential COVID-19 therapy. Vectura is to test IPX formulation to lungs through Vectura's FOX vibrating mesh nebulizer. FOX vibrating mesh nebulizer has boosted the respiratory care devices market in the preceding years.
