Industry players are working towards developing superior spirometers to simplify lung volume testing procedures will positively impact business growth. Lack of awareness about respiratory diseases and treatment, improper reimbursement pertaining to respiratory care devices and affordability issues faced in low and middle-income countries will hamper industry growth over the coming years.

Based on product type, the industry is segmented into table top, handheld and desktop spirometers. Table top spirometer business dominated the industry in 2017 and is estimated to grow considerably during the forecast period owing to high number of installations in primary settings including hospital and clinics. Moreover, table top spirometers deliver precise result will drive segment growth.

Flow measurement devices business is anticipated to grow at lucrative rate during the forecast period. These devices do not have any moving parts that make them appropriate for handling. Compact size of the device, cost efficiency and good frequency characteristics is forecasted to escalate device adoption over the coming years.

Application of the device in diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) held largest market share in 2017 owing to large patient pool suffering from COPD and rising disease awareness. According to U.S. National Institutes of Health report, COPD is responsible to cause 725,000 hospitalizations and 1.5 million emergency room visits annually in the U.S., while resulting in healthcare costs of around USD 60 billion.

Home healthcare business will grow at robust rate during the forecast period owing to growth of home healthcare sector leading to rise in demand for compact homecare spirometers. Growing preference towards management of respiratory diseases such as asthma at home as per short and long-term requirements will drive home healthcare segment during the forecast timeline.

U.S. spirometer market will expand due to presence of large patient pool and cutting-edge technology adoption. As per American Lung Association, COPD is third leading cause of mortality in the U.S. While, nearly 20.4 million adults suffer from asthma in the country. Growing demand for pulmonary tests, technological advancements in the device and rise in healthcare expenditure will further propel industry size expansion in the U.S. over the coming years.

Increasing geriatric population base, prone to suffer from several respiratory illnesses along with increasing usage of spirometers in primary settings including hospitals will drive Japan spirometer market over the forecast timeframe. Recently, In June 2018 Japanese government granted medical equipment worth USD 4.5 million to Bhutan to improve country’s diagnostic capacity as a part of , ‘Improvement of Medical Equipment at the National and Regional Referral Hospital Project’. The medical equipment included mammography machine, computed tomography (CT) scan machine, and spirometer.
