COPD Therapeutics in Asia-Pacific Markets to 2023 - Growth Driven by Rising Prevalence, Growing Awareness and Expected Launch of Novel Therapies

LONDON, Jan. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Download the full report: SummaryChronic

obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a term that refers to a large group of lung diseases characterized by obstruction of airflow that interferes with normal breathing. COPD occurs most often in older adults, but can also affect middle-aged people. It is not common in younger adults, as their lungs are still in a healthy state, and it takes several years for COPD to develop. There are two main forms of COPD: chronic bronchitis, which involves a long-term cough with mucus; and emphysema, which involves damage to the lungs over time.Asia-Pacific (APAC) chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) market is forecast to grow from around $3.8 billion in 2016 to over $6.5 billion in 2023, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 8.7%. Over the forecast period the prevalence of COPD is expected to increase significantly across the APAC markets, mainly due to an increase in the smoking population, as the disease is more common among smokers (Lim et al., 2015).Existing COPD therapies are aimed at managing the frequency and severity of the symptoms, and none have been shown to modify long-term disease progression. Roflumilast, which is the only targeted therapy available in the COPD market, has significant anti-inflammatory effects. However, the dosing of roflumilast is limited due to its side effects, which means that the therapeutic benefit is marginal.The report "COPD Therapeutics in Asia-Pacific Markets to 2023 - Growth Driven by Rising Prevalence, Growing Awareness and Expected Launch of Novel Therapies" detailing the key points driving the COPD market in the five Asia-Pacific markets: India, China, Australia, South Korea and Japan.In particular, this report provides the following - Provides an introduction to COPD, detailing the epidemiology, etiology, diagnostic techniques, pathophysiology, disease staging and prognosis for patients.
