Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a type of obstructive lung disease characterized by long-term breathing problems and low airflow. The primary symptoms include shortness of breath and cough with sputum production. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a progressive disease, meaning it typically aggravates over time. The two different kinds of COPD are emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Chronic bronchitis is a productive cough present for at least three months each year for two years. The individuals with such a cough are at a greater risk of developing COPD. Emphysem is also used for the abnormal air or other gas within tissues. The most common cause is tobacco smoking, with a smaller number of cases due to air pollution and genetics. In the developing world, familiar sources of air pollution are wood combustion, and cooking fires. Moreover, long-term exposure to these risk factors causes an inflammatory reaction in the lungs, leading to narrowing of the small air passages and breakdown of lung tissue. COPD is diagnosed based on low airflow as measured by lung function tests.


The chronic obstructive pulmonary disease drug market has shown a significant evolution over the forecast period. The key driving factors include increased incidence and prevalence of COPD, technological advancements, and a growing aging population. As per the US Census Bureau's Statistics, as of 2020, the total number of people aged between 65 and older exceeded 50 million. According to the United Nations, during 2015-2030, the number of older persons aged 60 years or worldwide is projected to grow from 901 million to more than 1.4 billion. The significant factors that cause COPD are exposure to air pollution , cigarette smoke, rare genetic condition, chemical fumes or dust, among others. The Lancet Respiratory Medicine published an article in 2020, revealed that permanent lung tissue damage caused due to COPD begins even before the patient experiences any symptoms. Besides, technological advancements are anticipated to provide lucrative market opportunities. However, limitations of traditional treatments, such as late-onset of action and low efficacy, and stringent government regulations are likely to restrict the market growth.
