The rise in the number of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients (COPD), tuberculosis, asthma, and pneumonia cases remains the major driver of the industry. Chronic respiratory diseases are chronic diseases that affect the airways and other parts of the lungs. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma are among the most common respiratory diseases affecting people worldwide. According to the Saudi Thoracic Society, in 2018, the prevalence of the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in Saudi Arabia was 4.2% among the general population and 14.2% among smokers. The need to treat a large population, reduce the number of deaths, and prevent the diseases from spreading further, and therefore is attributed to the increasing demand for respiratory devices across the country.
