The global respiratory devices market size is estimated to be worth USD 32.40 billion by 2028 and USD 20.67 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 9.40% during the forecast period.
The growing patient population suffering from respiratory diseases is one of the major factors driving the growth of the respiratory devices market. The number of people suffering from respiratory devices such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and respiratory infections is on the rise worldwide. Air pollution, smoking, occupational hazards and lifestyle choices are some of the primary reasons resulting in the incidence of respiratory diseases among people. WHO says an estimated 235 million people worldwide suffer from asthma. The growth in the number of people suffering from these diseases is fuelling the demand for respiratory devices to manage and treat the conditions effectively as these devices play a vital role in the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of respiratory conditions. Respiratory devices such as inhalers, nebulizers, oxygen concentrators, positive airway pressure devices, and ventilators are used most to offer respiratory support to patients.
The growing aging population across the globe further fuels the growth of the respiratory devices market. The population is aging rapidly worldwide. WHO estimates an estimated 2.1 billion people worldwide will be aging 60 years and above by 2050. People who are aged are more likely to diagnose with various diseases and conditions and need respiratory support and management. The respiratory muscles also lose their strength with growing age and weaken and the risk of developing respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, and obstructive sleep apnea is high among the aged people compared to the younger people.
The high prevalence of smoking, rising urbanization and pollution levels, increasing incidence of preterm births, and lifestyle changes boost the market’s growth rate. Infectious respiratory diseases directly drive demand for respiratory care. The increased incidence of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) contributes to the respiratory devices market growth. According to an article published by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), OSA is one of the significant health concerns worldwide, impacting 1 billion people aged between 30 to 79 years worldwide.
The growing number of infectious diseases is anticipated to reflect in the growth of the respiratory devices market. COVID-19 is the most recent and significant of these diseases; the pandemic has resulted in a surge in demand for personal protection equipment (PPE) and ventilators, among others. The need for ventilators has also grown due to the COVID-19 outbreak, resulting in governmental and industrial support for driving the pace of manufacturing. It indicates the emphasis on respiratory care in the background of a pandemic; the market is expected to show a healthy growth rate.
However, lack of awareness leading to a large underdiagnosed and undertreated population and the harmful effects of specific respiratory care devices on neonates are expected to have a negative impact on the respiratory devices market growth. In addition, the medical industry and respiratory care diagnostic are facing the challenge of a lack of reimbursements for various diagnostic tests. Reimbursement policies are dispersed in Europe and are available only for PAP devices and oral appliances in select countries (devices not covered by insurance have a low market share in the region). Also, most countries in the Asian and RoW regions have negligible reimbursement coverage for respiratory care devices.
Impact of COVID-19 on the global respiratory devices market:
The COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan, China, led to the rapid establishment of several hospitals for treating the increasing number of patients. It has been mirrored in other countries as well. Italy and the U.S. also built large hospitals within days to accommodate a growing patient population. In New York, the U.S., the army converted the Javits convention center into a 2,900-bed hospital within four days. Critical care devices are being manufactured in increased quantities to meet growing demand. The state of affairs resulting from the pandemic has resulted in alliances between healthcare and non-healthcare industries to manufacture respiratory care devices. Considering the above factors, the demand for respiratory devices has grown significantly due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With the acceleration of COVID-19, the global respiratory devices market is anticipated to showcase much better growth during the forecast period.

This market research report on the global respiratory devices market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on type, end-user, and region.
Respiratory Devices Market Analysis - By Type:
Based on type, the therapeutic devices segment accounted for the largest share of the global respiratory devices market in 2022 and the domination of the segment is likely to continue in the coming years. The growth of the segment is majorly driven by factors such as the growing adoption of several therapeutic devices such as nebulizers, PAP devices, humidifiers, and oxygen concentrators due to the growing geriatric population and an increasing number of suffering respiratory devices. The inhalers sub-segment is anticipated to register a healthy CAGR during the forecast period. Other segments such as nebulizers and oxygen concentrators are predicted to grow steadily in the coming years.
The diagnostic and monitoring devices segment is expected to grow at a notable CAGR during the forecast period. Under the sub-segments, the pulse oximeter segment did well in the recent past and is expected to post a healthy CAGR during the forecast period. The usage of pulse oximeters has increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To keep a self-check on their oxygen levels, people worldwide use pulse oximeters, which has quickened the demand for these devices. These devices are easy to use and understand the outcomes that come.
Respiratory Devices Market Analysis - By End-Users:
Based on end-uses, the hospital segment is estimated to account for the major share of the global respiratory devices market during the forecast period. The availability of a wide range of respiratory devices in hospitals and the growing incidence of respiratory diseases, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and respiratory infections majorly drive the growth of the hospital segment in the global market. Technological advancements and an increasing number of hospital admissions for respiratory illnesses further boost the adoption of respiratory devices in hospitals and boost segmental growth.
However, the home care segment is expected to showcase a healthy CAGR during the forecast period owing to the growing adoption of home healthcare. The growing trend towards providing respiratory care in a home-based setting due to factors such as cost-effectiveness, patient comfort, and the ability to reduce hospital readmissions is one of the major factors propelling the growth of the home care segment in the global market. The growing aging population, increasing prevalence of COPD, technological advancements and supportive reimbursement policies and initiatives encourage the use of respiratory devices in home care further contributing to the growth rate of the home care segment in the worldwide market.
