A spirometer is a medical apparatus which is used to measure the volume of air inspired and expired by the lungs. The device produces a spirogram, which is a graphic record of the ventilation arrangements of the lungs. They are having wide application for conducting the basic lung function tests to detect respiratory disorders like asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. Increasing awareness and early diagnosis of chronic and other respiratory disorders can help reduce the severity of such diseases and also prevent them in some cases. Most spirometers represent volume time graph and a flow volume graph, which help in examining a patient’s pulmonary functions. The application of spirometers has become easier with the help of technological advancements in the field of respiratory care devices. The major reasons for the growth of the market in the U.S. and Europe are policies mandating the use of respiratory devices, and absence of awareness of respiratory diseases and their symptoms.
The latest and advanced technological advancements, grown cases and incidences of respiratory diseases, the rise in the number of smokers, government initiatives and growing aging population are some of the major factors that are estimated to boost the market for spirometers. Additionally, the rising focus on monitoring respiratory diseases, home care uses spirometer devices and grown awareness about the sophisticated diagnostic techniques are projected to flourish the market for spirometers. The other factors responsible for the market growth are increasing aging population, rising incidences of chronic obtrusive pulmonary diseases (COPD), technological advancements in the field of respiratory care devices, and constricted budgets of healthcare institutions. Moreover, economic downturn, dearth of awareness about the respiratory diseases and related symptoms, and issues related to the reimbursement are some of the leading factors hampering the growth of the global spirometers market.
