Clarivate Epidemiology's coverage of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations across 45 countries worldwide. We report the prevalence of COPD for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.
Most patient populations are forecast over a period of 20 years for the major mature pharmaceutical markets of the United States, Europe, and Japan and a period of 10 years for the other countries covered in this report.
Clarivate Epidemiology's COPD forecast will answer the following questions:
How will changes in the levels of exposure to known risk or protective factors affect the number of people living with COPD?
In developing countries, what impact will economic growth and development have on the number of people living with a diagnosis of COPD?
Of all people with COPD, how many in each country across the world have been formally diagnosed?
Of all people diagnosed with COPD, how many in each country across the major mature pharmaceutical markets are drug-treated?
How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of COPD over the forecast period?
All forecast data are available on the Clarivate Insights Platform in tabular format, with options to download to MS Excel. All populations are accompanied by a comprehensive description of the methods and data sources used, with hyperlinks to external sources. A summary evidence table generated as part of our systematic review of the epidemiological literature is also provided for full transparency into research and methods.
In total, Clarivate Epidemiology forecasts 22 COPD patient populations, as follows:
Diagnosed prevalent cases with comorbid lifetime asthma.
Diagnosed mild to moderate prevalent cases.
Spirometric-negative prevalent cases.
Diagnosed prevalent cases.
Diagnosed severe to very severe drug-treated prevalent cases.
