Global digital metered dose inhaler market to reach $4.9 billion by 2026
Digital metered dose inhalers are advanced smart devices intended to treat and manage the delivery of medication for various respiratory conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Digital metered dose inhalers deliver a precise amount of medication into the patient’s lungs in the form of a short burst of aerosol medication. Patients can self-administer these drugs by inhalation. These devices have built-in sensors to record inhaler usage and measure inspiratory flow in accordance with dose management. The growth of the global market is poised to benefit from the rising prevalence of various respiratory disorders, favorable reimbursement policies, and technological advancements. The digital metered dose inhaler market is propelled by increasing cases of chronic respiratory diseases including asthma, respiratory allergies, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and obstructive sleep apnea which negatively affect the quality life of patients. COPD accounts for approximately 6% or more than 3 million deaths worldwide, with low- to middle-income countries reporting more than 90% of these deaths, creating a significant demand for advanced respiratory devices. The market is further driven by the growing aging population which is highly vulnerable to mild to severe forms of respiratory disorders. These next-generation devices are also benefiting from the growing adoption of digital devices, the pressing requirement for patient compliance with medications, the need for dose tracking, and significant investment in R&D activity. to offer miniaturized and innovative devices.

Amid COVID-19 crisis, Global Digital Metered Dose Inhalers Market Estimated at US$3.1 billion in 2022, is expected to reach a revised size of US$4.9 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 13.1% over the analysis period. Metered Dose, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.4% to reach US$3.4 billion at the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and the induced economic crisis, the growth of the dry powders segment is readjusted to a revised CAGR of 14.3% for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 35.7% share of the global digital metered-dose inhaler market. The metered dose segment is dominating the market due to its wide availability, rising incidence of chronic heart disease and increasing healthcare expenditure. These inhalers present a user-friendly and cost-effective option for users that ensures accurate delivery of the dose to be inhaled. Metered-dose inhalers are taking advantage of the rise in cases of respiratory conditions, including chronic respiratory disorders, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and asthma. The segment is benefiting from a growing awareness of the many advantages of advanced devices over conventional options. The metered dose inhaler segment is poised to be bolstered by the growing use of soft mist inhalers owing to the growing adoption of improved drug delivery systems coupled with ongoing technological advancements. On the other hand, the dry powder inhaler segment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate over the next few years owing to the increasing concerns associated with drug irritation caused by the propellant components present in metered dose inhalers, such as chlorofluorocarbons.

The US market is estimated at $1.3 billion in 2022, when China is expected to reach $418.2 million by 2026
The digital metered dose inhaler market in the United States is estimated at US$1.3 million in 2022. The country currently accounts for a 42.48% share of the global market. Chinaworld’s second largest economy, is expected to reach an estimated market size of US$418.2 million in 2026 with a CAGR of 16.4% over the analysis period. Other notable geographic markets include Japan and Canada, each predicting growth of 11% and 11.7% respectively over the analysis period. In Europe, Germany is expected to grow at around 12.6% CAGR while the rest of the European market (as defined in the study) will reach US$480.1 million at the end of the analysis period.

An interesting trend to note is ongoing trials targeting the use of inhalers to treat COVID-19. Researchers have developed a life-saving inhaler-based treatment that has the potential to protect patients with COVID-19 from severe signs. The approach is based on a protein, interferon beta-1a (SNG001), which is produced by the body during a viral infection. Inhaling the protein should trigger the immune response and prompt the cells to fight the virus. In another development, a group of researchers isolated an antibody from llamas with the potential to treat or prevent COVID-19. The antibody would be administered to patients using inhalers. After
