Pulmonary drug delivery systems use the respiratory tract to deliver medications to treat diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis. The history of use of these systems dates back to over 60 years ago, when these systems were initially indicated for treating only respiratory diseases - asthma and COPD. Continued development in this area facilitated their application in the treatment of other diseases as well, including cystic fibrosis and diabetes. Exubera was the first inhalable insulin launched by Pfizer Ltd. and Nektar Pharma for treating diabetes, in 2006. However,owing to its poor sales performance, Exubera was withdrawn from the market within a yearof its launch which led other partnerships such as Alkermes/Eli Lilly and Aradigm/Novo Nordisk to abandon the development process of inhalable insulin therapies. Currently,Afrezza by MannKind Corporation is the only inhalable insulin under review by the U.S. FDA and is likely to be approved for marketing in the U.S. by mid-2014.
The global market for pulmonary drug delivery systems includes metered dose inhalers (MDIs), dry powder inhalers (DPIs) and nebulizers. Initially, MDIs used chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) as propellants.Later due to rising environmental concerns and pressure from Montreal Protocol (1987) recommendation to phase out CFCs, manufacturers started using hydrofluoroalkanes (HFAs) that are considered as safe propellants causing negligible threat ofozone depletion.MDIs accounted for the largest share (56.8%) of the total global pulmonary drug delivery systems market in 2012 and this segment is expected to grow at a CAGR relatively lower than that for DPIs and nebulizer market segments. This is primarily because of the environmental concerns related with the use of CFCs, which led to ban on CFC-based inhalers. Although manufacturers have now started using HFAs the fact that HFAs also emit gases causing ozone layer depletion has led manufacturers to shift their focus more towards the development of DPIs. During the forecast period 2013 to 2019, DPIs are expected to witness greater demand than MDIs owing to propellant free nature of these systems. The market for nebulizers has been anticipated as the fastest growing segment of the pulmonary drug delivery systems market mainly due to the technical advances leading to portability of these devices and rising demand for home based care. The global pulmonary drug delivery systems market has also been segmented on the basis of their application in treating various diseases such as asthma, COPD and cystic fibrosis.
