Regional Analysis

Based on the region, global asthma and COPD drugs market has been divided into the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa.

The Americas are expected to dominate the global market for asthma and COPD medicines. It can be due to the increasing number of patients suffering from asthma and COPD in the region. According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology, about 8.3 percent of children in the US had asthma in 2016. In addition, growing health expenditure per person and increasing demand for advanced care options are also expected to drive market growth.

The European market for asthma and COPD drugs is projected to be the second-largest during the review period. Increasing awareness of asthma and COPD in Europe is expected to fuel the growth of the regional sector. For example, in April 2017, the 'United Action for Allergy and Asthma' was launched in Europe to raise awareness of asthma in the continent. In addition, the prevalence of asthma and COPD is also growing in Europe, which is further accelerating market growth.

However, the high incidence of asthma and COPD also has a positive effect on market development.
