With rapid urbanization there has been growth in various adverse factors that have led to the growth of respiratory diseases across the Asia Pacific. Some of the factors leading to growth in the number of asthma and COPD cases across the Asia Pacific are a rise in air pollution levels and increasing smoking habits.
The rise in air pollution levels has been a matter of rising concern in developed as well as developing economies. As per data published by the World Health Organization (WHO) released during May 2018, 9 out of 10 individuals are believed to breathe air containing high levels of pollutants. Data published by WHO reveals that approximately 7 million people die every year due to exposure to fine particles present in polluted air, which penetrate deep into the lungs and the cardiovascular system. This leads to various diseases such as lung cancer, pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and respiratory infections, among others. In 2016 Among the 2.2 million air pollution-related deaths in Asia pacific region, 29% were due to heart disease, 27% stroke, 22% chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, 14% lung cancer and 8% pneumonia. Additionally increasing indirect effects of air pollution like growing climate change, because of transport is the fastest growing source of fossil-fuel emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) which is a most significant contributor of climate change. In 2017 World Health Organization (WHO) held a member states consultation on addressing the health impact of air pollution in the western pacific region, and continues to take steps to improve the situation. Children living near roads with heavy-duty vehicle traffic have twice the risk of respiratory problems as those living near less congested streets. Hence, the rising levels of air pollution coupled are anticipated to drive the demand for the smart inhalers market during the forecast period.
