Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease – Landscape & Forecast – Disease Landscape & Forecast

The chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) therapy market continues to gradually shift away from LABA/ICS FDCs toward LABA/LAMA FDCs and LABA/LAMA/ICS FDCs, but current and emerging generics will have a significant impact on this trend. Some generic LABA/ICS FDCs and LAMAs have already launched in the United States and Europe, and more will reach the market in the coming years. Although physicians will welcome additional treatment options for this chronic disease as a result of the development of novel drug classes, including biologics (e.g., IL-33, IL-13/IL-4, IL-5 inhibitors) and novel inhaled and nebulized therapies (e.g., PDE3/4 inhibitors), significant unmet need remains for therapies that can repair lung tissue or halt disease progression.


  • Will LABA/LAMA FDCs continue to gain market share, or will generic therapies or branded LABA/LAMA/ICS FDCs threaten these agents?
  • What are key opinion leaders’ insights on current treatment options (e.g., GSK’s Advair, Trelegy, Breo; GSK / Innoviva’s Anoro; Boehringer Ingelheim’s Spiriva, Stiolto / Spiolto; AstraZeneca’s Breztri, Symbicort)? What factors drive physicians’ treatment decisions?
  • How will the market evolve over the 10-year forecast period?
  • Which emerging therapies have the most potential for uptake? Will nebulized therapies be accepted? Will the use of IL-5 inhibitors be accepted for COPD? How will the launch of these and other biologics influence the COPD market?
  • What is the unmet need in COPD treatment?
