(PharmaNewsWire.Com, August 07, 2019 ) The major factor driving the growth of the respiratory care devices market is the high prevalence of respiratory diseases as a result of the rapid growth in the global geriatric population, high prevalence of smoking, rising urbanization and growing levels of pollution, and lifestyle changes.
The respiratory care devices market is fragmented in nature, with the top five players accounting for around half of the total market in 2018. There are other smaller and medium-sized players as well, operating at both global and regional levels.
The leading market players are based across developed countries such as the US, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Ireland; however, in the past few years, smaller players have emerged, especially in the Asia Pacific market, competing with global players on the basis of price. Lucrative growth opportunities in the Asia Pacific market are increasing competition among market players. Companies are also focusing on R&D to add innovative technologies and products to their portfolios, which, in turn, helps them to strengthen their presence in respective markets.
