Smart Inhaler Technology Touted as a Major Breakthrough

Smart inhalers have been touted as a disruptive technology, and it remains a key focus area for manufacturers. Smart inhalers can signal patients if their overusing any medication, warning them against poor management of the condition. The technology is touted as a major breakthrough in the healthcare sector and one that is expected to enable growth in the respiratory inhaler devices market in the coming years.

Several studies already are underway gauging the potential of these development. For instance, My AirCoach, which is an EU-funded multi-institutional research project, aims at assessing how novel mobile health technologies, including smart inhalers, can help offering improved asthma control.

With myriad of developments underway, respiratory inhaler device shipments are likely to gain traction through 2030. FMI’s report offers a comprehensive analysis on how growth will unfold. Some of the key takeaways from the report are:

  • Dry powder inhalers remain the most lucrative category
  • Manually operated inhaler devices will remain preferred choice among available technologies
  • Respiratory inhaler devices sales surging to offer improved asthma control and management
  • US to remain a highly lucrative market for respiratory inhaler devices, however, growth in East Asia is expected to accelerate at a higher pace

“Some of the leading players are working on technologies that would enable monitoring and correction of inhalation techniques in the near future. They are developing smart inhalers that will use the Bluetooth technology to monitor inhaler use in patients. While several developments are underway, industry experts are cautiously examining the potential of smart inhalers to ensure all potential concerns pertaining to the novel technologies are ironed out. However once launched, smart technology can help the market gain momentum at accelerated pace in the near future,” said a lead analyst at FMI.
