About the Pneumatic Nebulizers Market
Nebulizers are drug delivery devices that use oxygen, compressed air, or ultrasonic energy to convert drug suspensions or solutions into aerosols or mist. Drugs in the form of aerosols or mist are easier for the user to inhale and the lungs to absorb. This drug delivery method helps administer different drugs, such as bronchodilators, antibiotics, antifungals, corticosteroids, and anti-inflammatory medications, for treating various respiratory disorders such as COPD, asthma, cystic fibrosis, and bronchitis. Nebulizers are often used for drug delivery to clear breathing passages, reduce inflammation in the airways caused by pollutants or infection, reduce mucous membrane swelling, treat upper respiratory infections, and mobilize and thin out secretions for easy removal. These devices are useful to treat children and adults who cannot manage their treatment with inhalers.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global pneumatic nebulizers market to grow at a CAGR of 6.36% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Pneumatic Nebulizers Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global pneumatic nebulizers market: Philips Healthcare, Omron Healthcare, PARI Medical, and BD.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Agilent Technology, Airssential, Allied Healthcare Products, Briggs Healthcare, CareFusion, Clement Clarke International, Fexicare, DeVilbiss Healthcare, Heyer Medical, GF Health Products, Medline Surgical, MRK Healthcare, Nidhi Surgical, Salter Labs, and TaiDoc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A key trend that will positively impact market growth is the emergence of disposable pneumatic nebulizers. Physicians are opting for disposable pneumatic nebulizers over traditional reusable pneumatic nebulizers. Reusable pneumatic nebulizers present risks of cross-contamination, resulting in hospital-acquired infections or nosocomial infections. The CDC estimated that about 4% of the population, or 1.7 million individuals in the US, have these infections every year, of which about 99,000 individuals die.”
According to the report, a key driver that will boost market growth is advanced technology. Advances in technology in the healthcare industry have led to the development of innovative devices with cutting-edge mechanics. Advanced pneumatic nebulizers can be customized as per patient requirement. Vendors are investing extensively in the R&D of innovative pneumatic nebulizers that are compact, portable, user-friendly, and provide accurate results. MicroAIR U22 and CompAIRNE-C28P developed by Omron Healthcare are some of these innovative nebulizers.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could impede market growth is drug wastage as some nebulizers do not offer good dispersion.
