Nebulizer Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global nebulizer market size is forecasted to value USD 1.54 billion by 2028 from USD 1.05 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 7.84% during the forecast period. 

Nebulizer Market Share Insights:

  • Based on the product, the Jet nebulizer covered the largest share of 65.3% in the global market in 2022.
  • Based on end-user, the Hospital segment took over 66% of the market share and dominated the global nebulizer market in 2022.
  • The North American Nebulizer market is expected to have the largest share and be worth USD 470 million by 2027.
  • Asia Pacific Nebulizer market is projected to grow with the highest CAGR of 9.80% during the forecast period.


The growing burden of chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cystic fibrosis and the increasing adoption of a sedentary lifestyle are propelling the growth of the global nebulizer market.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) statistics, an estimated 262 million people lived with asthma in 2019, and 455,000 died. COPD is causing a significant number of mortalities across the world. According to American Lung Association, 12.5 million adults in the United States suffer from COPD. According to WHO, 3.23 million people died due to COPD in 2019. Cystic fibrosis is one of the notable genetic diseases in the United States. According to American Lung Association, 30,000 people from the U.S. and an estimated 70,000 worldwide live with cystic fibrosis. COPD accounts for 60% of total respiratory diseases worldwide. In addition, YOY growth in population, the rise in air pollution levels causing breathing difficulties, and the growing population who smoke in developing economies are expected to escalate the incidence of respiratory diseases in emerging countries, which is expected to reflect in the greater demand for nebulizers. Moreover, the changes in the asthma pattern with age and the rise in the incidence of childhood asthma are likely to boost the usage of nebulizers and promote market growth. Furthermore, the growing emphasis of market participants on R&D activities to introduce innovative products is expected to boost the global nebulizer market growth.

In addition, the increasing initiatives and funding from governments and reimbursement policies to promote early diagnosis and treatment are expected to favor the market’s growth rate. For instance, the European Union spends almost 8% of the healthcare budget on managing respiratory diseases yearly. Moreover, the increasing costs with hospitals and other healthcare facilities have promoted the adoption of nebulizers. The use of portable nebulizers also drives the market. Emerging markets such as the Asia Pacific region are anticipated to showcase promising growth opportunities for the market participants.


The fierce competition from alternative solutions for nebulizers is expected to hamper the market’s growth rate. Inhalers are easy to use and cost-effective; hence the adoption of inhalers is increasing, which is expected to impact the nebulizer market growth negatively. Moreover, the wastage of drugs in nebulizer therapy is another notable challenge to the growth of the nebulizer market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global nebulizers market:

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced COVID-19 as an emergency public health issue. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for respiratory devices such as nebulizers has grown significantly and favored market growth. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many infected patients suffered from severe respiratory problems, fuelling the demand for nebulizers. With the growing number of COVID-19 patients, the growth rate of the nebulizer market increased. At the same time, many countries have faced shortage of medical supplies such as ventilators, PPEs, needles, and respiratory devices. The patients who were of the risks involved, such as the spread of the coronavirus with the consumption of the nebulizers, have stayed away from using nebulizers, and many governments-imposed restrictions on the usage of medical devices such as nebulizers, which behaved negatively on the market growth. Overall, the global nebulizer market had a mixed impact on the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the nebulizer market is anticipated to register a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
