Asthma is a chronic lung disease characterized by hyperresponsiveness of tracheobronchial smooth muscle to stimuli, resulting in narrowing and inflammation of air tubes, accompanied by increased secretion, swelling, and build-up of tissue fluid.

Symptoms include tight chest, wheezing, cough and may be a limitation of activity due to difficulty in breathing.

Approximately, 300 million people suffer from asthma in 2015 and the figures are mounting which is blamed on increased pollution and unhealthy lifestyles.

This has bloated the market to around USD 18.9 billion as of 2015 which is expected to reach USD 28.3 billion as of 2022, resulting in a CAGR of 5.94%.

The factors favoring the growth of the market are growing awareness of the benefits of modern drug therapy, a strong pipeline of anti-asthma drugs with some novel molecules, growth in patients due to increasing pollution, and great potential of biologics which is anticipated to dominate the future market, etc.

The constraining factors are loss of patents of leading brands, such as Advair and Symbicort, increasing fragmentation of markets, and generic penetration.

It is heartening to note that we anticipate that the growth factors will overwhelm the constraints and the market may take a strong growth due to the commercialization of the biologics segment.
