Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Overview

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a major health problem characterized by progressive airflow limitation and tissue destruction. It is majorly of two types: Chronic Bronchitis and Emphysema. Chronic bronchitis results in inflammation and irritation of the airways making the lining of the airways thick, whereas Emphysema damages the walls of the alveolar sacs reducing the amount of gas exchange in the lungs. 

With the advances in every field such as medical technology, awareness of the disease, huge strides of improvements have been taken in properly mapping the COPD epidemiology, clinical features and presentation, associated comorbidities, and treatment. 


Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Epidemiology

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is currently the third most common cause of global morbidity and mortality. As per COPD epidemiological analysis, COPD is primarily present in smokers, especially in the age group >40 years. The COPD prevalence increases with the age, however, the prevalence is most likely underestimated owing to the underdiagnosis of COPD.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Market Insights Report offers historical as well as forecasted epidemiological analysis during the study period 2018-30 in the 7MM segmented into:

  • Total Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease prevalent cases 
  • Total age-specific diagnosed COPD prevalent cases
  • Total gender-specific diagnosed COPD prevalent cases 
  • Total subtype-specific diagnosed COPD prevalent cases
  • Total COPD treatable and diagnosed cases 
  • Total severity-specific diagnosed COPD prevalent cases

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Therapy Market 

The primary goal of COPD treatment remains alleviating symptoms and addressing exacerbations, reducing mortality rate, and altering the underlying nature of the disease (otherwise known as ‘disease modification’).

Currently, there are 9 approved drug categories for COPD maintenance medication. However, the majority of these available treatment options are largely iterations of bronchodilators, which open airways and but no pharmacological treatment has the potential to prevent the progression of lung destruction. The only way to stop the disease from getting worse is to stop smoking.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Market Drivers and Barriers 

All of the available drugs and therapies in the COPD therapy market are symptomatic in nature. In the last decade, only one drug has entered the COPD market. However, a better understanding of the disease and its pathophysiology has surged the development of therapies in the COPD market. Besides, a growing prevalence and an aging population are also pushing the market growth. 

Novel investigational products in development targeting immune mediators are expected to show promising results on this front. The updated diagnosis paradigm, validation, and approval of patient-reported outcome questionnaires for clinical trials, and drug development tools, such as a prognostic biomarker for patient selection have further helped in stepping up the therapeutic approaches that are efficient, safe, and effective. 

Lastly, the increasing number of government initiatives along with nongovernment organizations have successfully managed to bring a lot of awareness around pollution and smoking that are major causes of COPD, thereby, impacting lifestyle in a positive manner and increase adoption of the drugs for treatment, ultimately, leading to vertical growth.
