About the Report

Respiratory disorders such as asthma, COPD, and lung cancer are on the rise globally. According to WHO, around 65 Mn people have moderate to severe COPD. Prevalence in also on the rise of people suffering from COPD, with three million deaths in 2015, which corresponds to 5% of all global deaths for the year. This is creating huge opportunities for interventional pulmonology across regions. Need for faster recovery time and reduced pain during procedures and surgeries for respiratory disorders has strengthened the market for interventional pulmonology. Leading providers of interventional pulmonology are focusing on geographical expansion in emerging countries by acquisition of local players. Some players are even focusing on collaborating with diagnostic centers and hospitals for direct sales and maintenance of equipment, along with training of personnel for increasing awareness of new technology. Further, rise in healthcare expenditure in developing countries and improving reimbursement policies are also encouraging new interventional pulmonology device manufacturers to enter the market, with the U.S. and Europe expected to offer the most opportunities.

In its new study, consulting firm Persistence Market Research offers insights about key factors driving demand for interventional pulmonology. The report tracks global sales of interventional pulmonology devices in 20+ high-growth markets, along with analysing the impact of COVID-19 on the biopharmaceutical industry in general, and interventional pulmonology market in particular.

Will Growing Life Expectancy Drive Demand for Interventional Pulmonology?

Improvement in healthcare policies in various countries such as the U.S. and Japan has resulted in higher affordability for various diagnostic and treatment services, which, in turn, has increased the life expectancy of the population. Rising life expectancy is another major factor expected to boost the growth of interventional pulmonology, due to high prevalence of COPD among the older population. Population above 45 years of age is mostly prone to COPD; risk of respiratory disease is higher among the aging population

Global population in 2015 was around 7.2 Bn, and is estimated to grow to 15 Bn by 2050. People aged 65+ is one of the fastest-growing demographics across the globe. This expected to increase the adoption of interventional pulmonology procedures across regions.

Will Technological Advancements Influence the Interventional Pulmonology Landscape?

Need for faster recovery time and reduced pain during procedures and surgeries for respiratory disorders has supported the market for interventional pulmonology. Companies such as Olympus are constantly launching new products and are are striving hard to acquire regulatory approvals for new procedures and interventions. For instance, Olympus’ Spiration Valve recently was approved for emphysema by the FDA.

Use of advanced inert materials such as silicon coating is leading to advancements in devices, which is increasing demand for interventional pulmonology devices. Advanced bronchoscopes have built upon the strengths of original bronchoscopes by increasing device versatility and ease of use in complex cases, which is driving a large replacement market. This transformation has led to a positive impact on the demand for interventional pulmonology.

Are Acquisitions of Small and Medium Players Aiding Market Growth?

Given the consolidation in the market, bigger players are focusing on the acquisition of small and medium market players. This trend is observed across North American and European countries. The acquisition space is dominated by players with a strong regional distribution presence in terms of direct sales force and medical ventilator product manufacturing facilities supported by trained professionals.

For instance, in January 2019, Cook Medical Inc. entered into an agreement with Whitaker Park Development Authority Inc. to acquire its manufacturing facility at Winston-Salem’s Whitaker Park.

What is the Impact of COVID-19 on the Interventional Pulmonology Market?

Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic scenario, the healthcare sector has been the central point of focus. As importing was halted, it adversely affected the finances of a majority of healthcare companies. Most industries, including healthcare, suffered from a supply chain crisis.

On the other hand, the good part is that governments and business owners have started looking for alternatives, and this can benefit lower economies to source materials.  Also, COVID-19 has compelled businesses and investors across the world to reconsider their own growth strategies and expertise.

On the other side of the COVID-19 crisis, there has been a notable adverse impact on the medical devices market, including interventional pulmonology, due to the shortage of manpower and increasing focus of manufacturers on investing in COVID-19-related products.


Country-wise Insights

Why is there Huge Opportunity for Interventional Pulmonology in the U.S.?

Persistence Market Research has projected North America to remain as one of the most profitable markets throughout the forecast period. One of the key factors supporting expansion is high spending on healthcare by the U.S. According to the CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services), in the U.S. healthcare spending grew by 4.3 percent in 2016, i.e., US$ 3.3 trillion (US$ 10,348 per person).

Furthermore, the U.S. remains one of the largest markets for biopharmaceuticals in the world, which makes it a lucrative pocket for interventional pulmonology as well. Also, asthma is a leading chronic disease among children; more common in children than adults. In the U.S. around 8.3% children below 18 years suffer from asthma. This creates huge opportunities for interventional pulmonology providers in the country.

How is Rising COPD & Asthma Cases across APAC Boosting Scope for Interventional Pulmonology?

Emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, Mexico, and South Africa have a large COPD and asthma patient pool. Patients with COPD often require respiratory support. In Asia, countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand indicate significant burden of asthma. But most of patients remain underdiagnosed and untreated.

These geographies represent a big opportunity for interventional pulmonology device manufacturers, owing to high demand for respiratory disease treatment. Economic development in these emerging economies coupled with rising disposable income of patients would help the market ensure future sustainability. In addition, rise in healthcare expenditure in developing countries and improving reimbursement policies would encourage interventional pulmonology device manufacturers to enter into this region.

How is Improvement in Healthcare Infrastructure and Funding Supporting Market Growth in Developing Regions?

Most countries across the world are increasing their spending to improve healthcare infrastructure. As with the current healthcare infrastructure, countries such as India and South Africa, among others, are not capable of delivering proper healthcare services. Majority of the population in these countries live in rural areas with inadequate healthcare facilities. Thus, these countries are increasingly making investments to increase the number of hospitals and improve the quality of care, particularly in rural areas, which will lead to rising demand for interventional pulmonology.

  • The National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) was established to improve healthcare in rural areas in India. NRHM sought to improve infrastructure with adequate human resources for healthcare.
  • In 2016, Mexico made public–private partnership for improvement of the healthcare infrastructure and medical devices.
