Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Product, the jet nebulizers category accounted for the majority share in the market in 2020”

Based on product, the nebulizer market is segmented into jet nebulizers, mesh nebulizers, and ultrasonic nebulizers. In 2020, the jet nebulizers category is anticipated to witness a significant growth rate during the forecast period owing to the rising prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and tuberculosis. In addition, the most prescribed form of treatment for COPD diseases is inhalation therapy, including inhalers and nebulizers. The fast and effective relief of symptoms from a nebulizer can greatly improve a patient’s health. According to the World health organization (WHO), Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the third leading cause of death worldwide, causing 3.23 million deaths in 2019.


“Amongst Modality, the portable category is expected to witness significant growth rate during the forecast period”

Based on modality, the nebulizer market is segmented into portable and tabletop. In 2020, the portable category is anticipated to witness a significant growth rate during the forecast period. Portable nebulizers are lightweight, more compact in size, convenient to carry around, and battery-operated. Moreover, the growth of this segment is mainly due to the increased number of pulmonary fibrosis, lung infections, CVDs, and respiratory diseases. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), Out of the 17 million premature deaths due to noncommunicable diseases in 2019, 38% were caused by CVDs.

“Amongst End-User, the hospitals and clinics category held a significant share in the market in 2020”

Based on end-user, the nebulizer market is categorized into hospitals & clinics, ambulatory & emergency centers, and home care settings. In 2020, the hospitals & clinics category held a significant market share in the market and is expected to grow significantly in the upcoming years. This category especially driven by the higher number of patients with co-morbid conditions has been pivotal in higher demand for table-top and portable devices from these settings globally. In addition, rising cases of respiratory diseases, lung infections, and the availability of skilled professionals in hospitals are some reasons for the growth of this segment.

“North America to witness significant growth during the forecast period”

For a better understanding of the market, the report provides a detailed analysis of major regions and countries including North America (U.S., Canada, Rest of North America); Europe (Germany, U.K., France, Spain, Italy, Rest of Europe); Asia-Pacific (China, India, Japan, Australia, South Korea, Rest of Asia-Pacific) and Rest of World. In 2020, North America accounted for a significant market share.
