In the next five years, the global asthma and COPD drug market is expected to grow slowly, primarily because of expiry of patents of leading drug brands and price erosion in the market. However, by 2017, few novel drugs are expected to enter the asthma and COPD market, which will drive future growth. The existing asthma and COPD market is mainly driven by increasing patient population. The other factors that will drive the market include long term use of asthma and COPD drugs, increase in disposable income and improved access to medical care facilities in emerging economies. 

Competition in the asthma market is becoming intense due to the increased entry of combinational therapies, inhaled corticosteroids and beta-agonists. It is expected that Symbicort, Advair and Singulair would be the leading drugs of the global asthma and COPD market, while GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca and Merck will continue to be the market leaders till the patents on their drugs expire in the coming years. 

The restraints in the asthma and COPD drug market is the threat of generic products in the market since many patents are going to expire in the coming years and governments have restrictions on healthcare budgets. The patent expiry of Merck’s Singulair in 2012 and Advairs’ in 2016 will shift the manufacturers to generic drugs. The purchasers will have high bargaining power due to large competition in the market and cost consciousness is expected to remain one of the major constraints in the COPD and asthma drug market.

The opportunities in the asthma and COPD market is huge as many companies are focusing on contract manufacturing outsourcing (CMO) and large players have entered this market with new product development. Increase in awareness about the benefits of timely diagnosis for asthma and COPD and availability of healthcare equipment for the detection of asthma and COPD in rural areas will further boost the market and growth opportunities for market players. 

In China, growth in urbanization and change in lifestyle has projected sharp increase in occurrence of asthma in the recent years. The occurrence of asthma symptoms is higher in urban areas as compared to rural areas. Air pollution and smoking are the most important factors which have led to the rapid increase in asthma and COPD patients in China.
