Increasing Prevalence of Various Respiratory Diseases and Unhealthy Lifestyle Expected to Boost Demand for Respiratory System Testing Market

04-Oct-2016 | Zion Market Research

The respiratory system is an arrangement of organs, responsible for providing oxygenated blood to the body tissues; it helps to remove unwanted carbon dioxide and waste gases. Respiratory system includes air passages, pulmonary vessels, lungs, and breathing muscles. The respiratory system also helps to filter and to humidify the air. In addition to this, respiratory system plays prime role in homeostasis, stabilization of blood alkaline balance, regulate temperature and remove toxic waste. The study of respiratory disease is known as pulmonology. Some of the common diseases are like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, acute respiratory distress syndrome, emphysema, pneumonia, and lung cancer. Respiratory disease tests such as bronchoscopy, chest fluoroscopy, lobectomy, lung biopsy, mediastinoscopy, pneumonectomy and thoracentesis are available in market for diagnosis of various respiratory disorders.

According to Zion market research, global respiratory system testing market was valued at around USD 2.6 billion in 2015 and it is expected to generate revenue worth of USD 3.1 billion by the end of 2021, growing at a CAGR of 3.6% in between 2016 to 2021. The dominance of this market is mainly due to increasing occurrence of various respiratory diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, lung cancer, acute respiratory distress syndrome and pneumonia. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease (COPD) is long term serious disease which mainly affects older people, thus equipments used to diagnose this type of disease holds potential to flourish the market growth. Moreover, respiratory system testing market is also driven by technological advancement, and unhealthy lifestyle with increasing consumption of cigarette and alcohol. However, inferior adoption rate of digital radiography and portable spirometers may impede the growth of respiratory system testing market. Untapped market of Asia-Pacific region and technology advancement may help to generate more revenue and opportunities for this market.
