Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory pulmonary disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Its symptoms include breathing difficulties, coughing, mucus production, and wheezing. People with COPD are at increased risk of developing heart disease, lung cancer, and several other health conditions.
The key factor driving the growth of the global market for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) market is the growing prevalence of the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease worldwide, which is expected to fuel demand for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) drugs.

It is estimated that COPD will become the world’s third leading cause of death by 2030.
Additionally, the rising geriatric population and increasing customer understanding of the new and innovative treatment options also complement market growth. Through research and development in this field to develop more innovative COPD treatment solutions may also give numerous opportunities for more market growth. However, restrictive government regulations are expected to impede business growth.
