The global asthma spacers market is expected to be driven by the popularity of spacers which has led to an increase in the number of various kinds of spacers available in the market. Further, the usefulness of spacers in the treatment of respiratory disorders is expected to help market growth. North America, Europe and Asia are expected to be key markets.
In the treatment of asthma, use of spacers to facilitate inhaled medication delivery is becoming increasingly popular. They have been shown to be as effective as nebulisers in the treatment of acute asthma, reduce the problems associated with poor inhaler technique, and prevent oral absorption of inhaled corticosteroids. By attaching facemasks or mouthpieces, spacers can be adjusted to treat patients of all ages. Different types of spacers available in the market include Volumatic, AeroChamber, Able Spacer, Space Chamber Plus, and A2A spacer. Disposable spacers (made of paper or plastic) are also available. However, these spacers can not be cleaned, and should not be used longer than suggested by the manufacturing company. The usefulness of spacers in the treatment of respiratory disorders, along with increased availability, is expected to boost the global asthma spacers market.
The performance of spacers may vary with size, volume, shape, material used for manufacture, the tendency to become electrostatically charged, and method of interface with the patient. Small-volume spacers (up to 100 mL) are generally non-valved, cylindrical extensions of the pMDI (pressurized metered-dose inhalers) mouthpiece. These are the least inconvenient, however, such spacers are least likely to eliminate the requirement for extra patient coordination between pMDI actuation and commencement of inhalation.
Medium- (100–350 mL) and large-volume (>700 mL) spacers usually incorporate a unidirectional valve at their mouthpiece end, allowing inhalation from, but not exhalation into, the spacer. These devices are therefore called VHCs and allow more leeway in the time in which the patient has to commence inhalation after activating the pMDI or allowing delivery by tidal breathing. They are more cumbersome and less portable.
A unidirectional valve is commonly included at the mouthpiece end of medium-volume (100–350 mL) and large-volume (>700 mL) spacers, allowing inhalation from, but not exhalation into the spacer. Thus, these devices are known as VHCs (valved holding chambers), and offer more time for the patient to inhale once pMDI is activated. These spacers are, however, more inconvenient and difficult to transport.
Asthma is a common noncommunicable disease (NCD) affecting adults as well as children across the globe; symptoms include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest. Among children, asthma is one of the most common chronic illnesses. However, with the help of inhaled medicine, asthma can be controlled and people suffering from the disorder may live an active and normal life.
