  • Datamonitor

In 2010, Datamonitor estimates that there were about 69.5 million total prevalent cases of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in people aged over 40 in the seven major markets(the US, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK). Approximately 54% of cases were mild, 38% were moderate, and 8% were severe or very severe.

Features and benefits

- Gain insight into market potential, including a robust 10-year epidemiology forecast of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease prevalent cases.
- Understand the key epidemiologic risk factors associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Highlights

- Between 2010 and 2020, Datamonitor expects to see a significant increase in the number of total prevalent cases of COPD in those over age 40 in the seven major markets (the US, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK), from 69.5 million cases to 79.5 million cases. The largest increase will be in the US and the smallest in Germany.
- Datamonitor estimates that the largest number of cases of COPD will be in those over age 70, especially in men, due to the fact that COPD prevalence rates increase with age and men are more likely to be READ MORE >

DRIVERS OF COPD EPIDEMIOLOGY
Risk factors
Age is one of the leading risk factors in COPD
High male prevalence rates of COPD are related to other increased risk factors in males
Tobacco smoke is the leading risk factor of COPD
Genetics are related to susceptibility in COPD
Occupational exposures and other air pollutants increase risk of COPD
Co-morbid conditions
Asthma and COPD can be confused in diagnosis
Pulmonary and respiratory infection are common exacerbations in COPD
Cardiovascular co-morbidities are related to similar risk factors between the two diseases
Pulmonary hypertension prevalence increases with severity of COPD
Patients with COPD are at a significantly increased risk of lung cancer
Osteoporosis and the number of fractures are much higher in those with COPD
