U.S. and China Asthma and COPD Drugs Market: Overview
Asthma is a disease characterized by recurrent attacks of coughing, chest-tightening, breathlessness, and wheezing as the airways narrow and swell that vary in severity and frequency. COPD is a disease of the lungs characterized by obstruction to airflow that interferes with normal breathing. According to the WHO, COPD accounted for over 3 million deaths in 2012, which is equal to 6% of all deaths globally in that year. Moreover, the WHO predicts that COPD will become the third most common cause of death globally by 2030. However, these statistics have already materialized in the U.S. and China, where COPD is currently said to be the third leading cause of mortality.
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, asthma is the leading chronic disease in children in the U.S. It is also the most common reason for missed school days. Moreover, an estimated 10 people in the U.S. die from asthma each day, while 3,630 die each year. In China, the figures are worse. A large population of COPD patients goes underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed in China every year. A large proportion of these deaths are avoidable with proper treatment and care. Thus, the existence of an unmet medical need is clearly evident and is anticipated to augment the asthma and COPD drugs market.
