Increase in geriatric population with rise in incidence of bronchitis drive market
The global population is aging rapidly, especially in a few developed countries such as the U.S., most of Western Europe, and Japan. Developed economies witness a high rate of aging as compared to that in developing countries. This is attributed to improved health care infrastructure, favorable reimbursement policies, and advancements in health care facilities in these countries. Moreover, access to various diagnostic and treatment services has improved in recent years, especially in developed economies. This, in turn, has increased the life expectancy of the population. The geriatric population is more prone to develop respiratory conditions. Increase in number of geriatric people leads to high rate of ailments, which in turn is likely to propel the bronchitis treatment market.
