Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is not curable, but can be managed with appropriate medication. Various awareness programs have been initiated by healthcare providers and health organisations/societies such as environmental programs, medication maintenance programs and online education programs for public and healthcare professionals, which encourage people to adopt early medication.
This factor is expected to play a key role in increased revenue of the global respiratory devices market over the forecast period.

The burgeoning ageing population will raise the number of people diagnosed with COPD and asthma. Overall management of asthma and COPD is very crucial and problematic after 65 years of age. People above 65 years who are diagnosed with asthma and COPD are unable to consume liquid medication.

Moreover, the rise in per capita income is influencing individuals to spend more on health care, as concerns regarding healthcare is increasing with increasing living standards.
