Respiratory Tract Infection Treatment Market Is Projected to Be Around US$ 62.31 Billion With Healthy CAGR of 6.5% by 2026, Coherent Market Insights

SEATTLE, April 09, 2021, (PHARMIWEB) — Respiratory diseases such as bronchitis, asthma, allergic rhinitis, pneumonia, and sinusitis can significantly curtail the physical activities of the individual. The symptoms associated with both mild and severe indication of these respiratory conditions include coughing, wheezing, chest pain, respiratory distress, and shortness of breath, congestion, and even death in severe cases. These conditions lead to substantial morbidity and cause large financial burden to the society.

Therefore, the development of new drugs (having less adverse effects) for treatment of respiratory tract infection is a major concern for manufacturers, as several generic drugs are available in the market.

Increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases is expected to drive growth of the respiratory tract infection treatment market

Increasing prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma, chronic pulmonary lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, and occupational lung disease are major factors augmenting growth of the respiratory tract infection market.

For instance, according to the Biomed Central Respiratory Research 2016, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are common chronic obstructive lung disorders characterized by variable airflow limitation and airway hyper responsiveness, affecting over 25 million people in the U.S.

Various organizations, institutions, and agencies are working towards improving the diagnosis and medical care needed to reduce the global burden of respiratory diseases. For instance, the Global Alliance against Chronic Respiratory Diseases (GARD) was formed with the support from the World Health Organization (WHO) to control chronic respiratory diseases. The main objective of GARD is to develop simple and affordable strategies for chronic respiratory diseases (CRD) and to encourage economies to implement health promotion and CRD prevention policies.

The increasing number of pipeline drugs which are expected to be launched over the forecast period is also boost the growth of the respiratory tract infection treatment. Some of the drugs in the pipeline include Relenza (GSK), MK7264 (Merck & Co.), Presatovir (Gilead), AZD7594, and PT010 (AstraZeneca).

However, presence of various generic manufacturers and low cost of various drugs including antibiotics may hinder growth of the respiratory tract infection treatment market to some extent during the forecast period.
