Asthma is a chronic disease, which cannot be cured only appropriate management is possible to control the disease. Asthma targets airways of the lungs causing it to inflame, swallow and tightens the airway of the lungs, causing respiratory tract infection and causing symptoms such as coughing, shortness of breath, tightness, and wheezing. The symptoms of the asthma are related to physical activity, even healthy people suffer from asthma symptoms during vigorous exercise. This type of asthma is called exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB). This type of asthma is controlled and the symptoms are kept under control by developing a management plan by a physician. People with family history of asthma are more prone to this illness and develop allergies frequently. This type of asthma is called allergic asthma. The allergies/asthma due to toxic fumes, gases, dust during the occupation/work in known as occupational asthma. Childhood asthma effects millions of children and is developed in mainly during first five years of life.
Short term medication to alleviate symptoms and long term medication are prescribed to people with persistent symptoms. There is no cure for asthma, but if diagnosed it can be managed by medications and can improve the quality of life. The cause of asthma is not understood completely. The major cause of developing asthma is the genetic predisposition, environmental exposure, and allergies to toxic chemicals. Indoor allergen includes dust mites, pet dander, and others, outdoor allergens include pollens, moulds, tobacco smoke and air pollution. Extreme emotional stimulation such as fear, anger and certain medications such as non-steroid, beta blockers, an anti-inflammatory drug, and others also cause asthma.
Asthma is diagnosed by looking after patient medical history and performing breathing tests, this test helps to measure the amount of air the lungs can hold and examines asthma severity. The medication to manage asthma symptoms are taken daily and contains inhaled corticosteroids such as ciclesonide, budesonide, flunisolide and others. Short acting beta agonist are prescribed for quick relief. The inhaler contains beta blockers and inhaled corticosteroid. Leukotriene modifiers are prescribed for asthma as oral medication. The people suffering from symptoms suffer from respiratory infections such as influenza and pneumonia.
Increasing incidence of respiratory diseases, demand for cost effective medication, as the cost for asthma medication is very high in U.S market. New drug development and approvals, uptake of novel biologic agents, strong brand loyalty, no replacement of inhaler devices, the rise in geriatric population, rise in initiatives implemented by the government and other non-government organizations.
According to American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, between 2011 and 2014, the prevalence of asthma was 8.8 % among all adults. The asthma is more common among adults with obesity ~11.1% compared to adults with normal ~7.1% and overweight ~7.8%. The rise in air pollution, with the sedentary lifestyle, demand for technologically advanced products and others are some of the factors fueling the growth of asthma management products market. Patent expiration, marketing of asthma low-cost generic drugs, strict regulatory approval are some of the factors restraining the market growth
