Asthma Treatment Market: Increasing Penetration of Generic Drugs to Drive Sluggish Growth

The global asthma treatment market will rise from a value of ~US$ 25.6 Bn in 2019 to ~US$ 30.5 Bn by 2027, and it is anticipated that an increase in the number of FDA-approved products in parallel to the increasing awareness among asthma patients regarding quality care will drive the steady odyssey of the market.

The strategic approaches taken towards consolidation, partnerships and collaborations will remain integral to maximize profitability from new markets. Having witnessed product recalls, manufacturers in the asthma treatment market are dedicating ample efforts to develop high-quality products, which are likely to receive easy approvals from the FDA and similar regulatory bodies.

On the demand side, as awareness regarding quality care for the treatment of asthma increases among patients, the adoption of inhalers and oral drugs is likely to increase. However, in recent times, the cost-benefits of generic drugs have been appealing to patients, which could pose as a challenge for manufacturers in the asthma treatment market.

Consumer Shift towards Alternative Therapies to Impede Revenue of Asthma Treatment Market

The consumption of antibiotics for the treatment of asthma has always been debatable, given their side-effects such as include sore mouth and throat, dysphonia, cough, and spasms of the trachea. In addition, several patients have also complained of suffering from headaches, increased heart rates, and tremors, post the intake of drugs, which has instigated the quest for asthma treatment that is free from any side-effects, such as alternative therapies.

Despite not being branded as the mainstream treatment, individuals in the modern era are showing a marked proclivity for alternative therapies as an additional measure to treat asthma. Another challenge for market players is the mounting amount of literature that claims the effectiveness of alternative therapies when practiced for a prolonged period of time. This has attracted the interest of practitioners as well as asthma patients towards alternate therapies, as such impeding the growth of the global asthma treatment market.

The trend of practicing Yoga and Unani is gaining traction, and is more pronounced in Asia Pacific, which also happens to be the home to these therapies. Also, a high number of medical tourism activities observed in the region are likely to pass on the trend to developed countries, which could negatively impact the sales of drugs and devices related to asthma, thereby stunting the growth of the asthma treatment market space.

Long-term Asthma Control Medications to Outperform Quick-relief Medications

According to statistical data reported by the TMR study, the sales of long-term asthma control medications accounted for a value equal to ~US$ 14 Bn in 2018, and these drugs are projected to fast-penetrate the end-user space at a rate of ~3% during 2019-2027. A spurt in the growing popularity of these medications is due to the increase in the adoption of combination drugs for treating asthma, coupled with several studies establishing their effectiveness, when consumed for a prolonged duration.

Quick-relief medications have use only during asthma attacks, which makes them a less-significant drug in the asthma treatment market. To add to that, a high number of patent expirations and the advent of generic variants are further projected to impede their sales potential during the forecast period.

Asthma Treatment Market: Analysts’ View

Authors of the report opine that, the asthma treatment market will grow at a slow, yet steady pace, as long-term asthma control medications will bring continuous sales opportunities. Hospital pharmacies with the ability to maintain large inventories with essential drugs are likely to remain crucial; however, an increasing number of retail pharmacies, coupled with their easy accessibility, will drive significant revenue to the asthma treatment market. As the healthcare industry braces itself to embrace digitalization, online pharmacies will overcome the limitations of physical exposure in overseas territories.

Asthma Treatment Market: Key Insights

Long-term asthma control medications and quick-relief (rescue) medications are the two types of drugs used to treat asthma.

Rescue inhalers and controller inhalers are used to treat the symptoms of asthma. However, to manage severe asthma cases, longer-acting inhalers are required, which can keep the airways open (formoterol, salmeterol, tiotropium) as well as be used as inhalant steroids.

Major types of long-term asthma control medications include combination inhalers, inhaled corticosteroids, long-acting beta agonists, leukotriene modifiers, theophylline, and others (reslizumab, benralizumab, etc.).
