Long-acting Beta-agonists Market

Long-acting Beta-agonists Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2021-2031

Long-acting Beta-agonists Market: Introduction

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive disease defined by growing airflow restriction and respiratory symptoms, which are frequently accompanied by chronic comorbidities, resulting in a major burden for the patient.
  • Specific pharmaceutical therapy for COPD aids in the prevention and control of symptoms, frequency & intensity of exacerbations, improvement of health status, and improvement of exercise tolerance. Inhaled bronchodilators, such as 2-agonists and muscarinic antagonists, enhance lung function by changing airway smooth muscle tone; however, these have an effect on the peripheral airways. These decrease air trapping and enhance lung emptying, lowering lung volumes, and improving lung function.
  • Since the late 1990s, inhaled long-acting 2-agonists (LABAs) such as formoterol and salmeterol have been approved for the treatment of COPD. These enhance lung function, symptoms of shortness of breath and activity restriction, health-related quality of life, and reduce the number of exacerbations. However, not all patients obtain clinically relevant improvements in symptoms or health-related quality of life. Moreover, LABAs have a good safety profile and are not linked with an increased risk of respiratory mortality. However, side effects such as palpitations and tremor could restrict the tolerable dose. The half-life of formoterol and salmeterol is 12 hours.

Global Long-acting Beta-agonists Market: Drivers, Restraints, Trends

  • Rise in prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases is a key factor boosting the growth of the global market. Additionally, adoption of combination therapies such as formoterol and salmeterol has increased, as these have shown significant improvements in lung function compared to ipratropium bromide and theophylline.
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases are caused due to exposure to air pollution, working with chemicals, dust & fumes, breathing secondhand smoke, and a history of childhood respiratory infection or a genetic condition called alpha-1 deficiency. This is projected to boost the growth of the global long-acting beta-agonists market during the forecast period.
  • According to the American Lung Association, about 85% to 90% of all COPDs are caused by cigarette smoking. More than 7,000 chemicals are created when a cigarette burns, many of which are harmful. The toxins in cigarette smoke has dangerous effects that weakens lungs' defense against infections, narrows air passages and causes swelling in air tubes, and destroys air sacs, which in turn cause COPDs.
  • Long-acting beta-agonist usage is increasing across several industries, with significant growth in hospitals, clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers, as well as increased environmental concerns. This boosts the growth of the global long-acting beta-agonists market.
  • Rise in disposable income, increase in awareness, and surge in geriatric population are anticipated to fuel the growth of the global market
  • Surge in usage of bronchodilators for the treatment of cystic fibrosis augments the global long-acting beta-agonists market
  • However, adverse effects associated with bronchodilators and government restrictions regarding the safety and efficacy of bronchodilators are expected to restrain the global market. Nevertheless, continuous R&D initiatives on bronchodilator are expected to drive the long-acting beta-agonists market.

North America Accounts for Major Share of Global Long-acting Beta-agonists Market

  • North America accounted for the largest share of the global long-acting beta-agonists market in 2020, followed by Europe. Rise in prevalence of cystic fibrosis and increase in government initiatives to raise awareness about COPD, asthma, and other chronic respiratory illnesses contribute to the region's large market share. Moreover, presence of top players such as AstraZeneca and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. drives the market in the region.
  • However, the market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period. This is attributed to increase in patients with respiratory disorders and considerable improvement in the health care sector in the region.
