A metered dose inhaler (MDI) is a pressurized inhaler that delivers medication by using a propellant spray. It is widely useful for people with respiratory disorders like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic bronchitis, and emphysema.
In recent years, there has been a rise in the prevalence of the diseases of the respiratory system such as chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, asthma, chronic respiratory diseases, and others. According to WHO, more than 3 million people die each year from COPD worldwide while 235 million have asthma.
As a result, there has been a rise in awareness among people about the advanced respiratory devices that have beneficial features over the traditional treatment methods, thus propelling the market growth. However, MDIs, release environmentally-hazardous gases, namely chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and hydrofluoroalkanes (HFA), which is negatively impacting the growth of the MDI market.
