A nebulizer is usually battery operated or electrically powered and is used to convert liquid medication into aerosol or mist that can easily reach into the lungs of a patient when inhaled through a face mask or a mouthpiece. The growing prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases such as cystic fibrosis, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has boosted the growth of the India nebulizers market.
The elderly population is more prone to developing respiratory diseases. Rise in geriatric population in India has further supported the growth of the nebulizers market. However, drug loss during dosage delivery might hamper the usage of nebulizers. Nevertheless, the overall market holds a significant opportunity to grow with the utilization of innovative products in new clinical applications. The India nebulizers market is anticipated to expand robustly at a CAGR of 25.8% during the period between 2015 and 2023. The market was worth US$575.6 mn in 2014 and is expected to reach a valuation of US$4,703.4 mn by 2023.
Pneumatic Nebulizers are Most Widely Used across India
On the basis of product type, the India nebulizers market has been categorized into ultrasonic nebulizers, mesh nebulizers, nebulizers kit, and pneumatic nebulizers. Pneumatic nebulizers accounted for 68% of the market in 2014 and are the most widely used nebulizers. The pressurized gas supply in pneumatic nebulizer helps to push medication towards the mouth. The compressed gas is delivered through a valve that creates negative pressure on the medication tank.
In an ultrasonic nebulizer, electric current is used to produce high frequency vibrations in a container of fluid. The vibrations break up the fluid containing medications into aerosol particles. On the other hand, mesh nebulizers create vibrations to allow the flow of liquid formulation through a fine mesh to develop aerosol medication. Mesh nebulizers registered the highest CAGR in the India nebulizers market in 2014 due to their efficiency and fast drug delivery.
