“EpiCast Report: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) – Epidemiology Forecast to 2023


Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), also known as chronic obstructive lung disease (COLD), is a condition characterized by difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, wheezing, chest tightness, and other respiratory symptoms that progress over time. The disease is often caused by smoking; however, long-term exposure to other lung irritants, such as pollution, smoke from vehicle emissions and power stations, chemical fumes, and dust, can also lead to the development of COPD. COPD is also a significant cause of morbidity and mortality, and the World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that it will be the third leading cause of death in the world by 2030.

In the 8MM, GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the total prevalent cases of COPD will increase from 64,229,605 cases in 2013 to 73,794,089 cases in 2023 at an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 1.49%. GlobalData epidemiologists also forecast that the diagnosed prevalent cases of COPD will increase from 18,920,845 cases in 2013 to 21,789,454 cases in 2023 at an AGR of 1.52%. In the 8MM in 2013, 16.41% of the diagnosed prevalent cases of COPD were in GOLD Stage I, 24.66% were in GOLD Stage II, 29.09% were in GOLD Stage III, and 29.84% were in GOLD Stage IV. GlobalData epidemiologists estimated that 18,065,499 of the diagnosed prevalent cases of COPD in 2013 would have survived to the end of the year.

This analysis for COPD is a market-driven epidemiological report providing detailed segmentations of the COPD patient population, including the age- and sex-specific distribution of the total and diagnosed prevalent cases, the GOLD stage distributions for the total and diagnosed prevalent cases, the diagnosed prevalent cases that have comorbidities, and an estimation of the exacerbations and mortality for the forecast COPD patients. GlobalData epidemiologists also describe in detail the sources and methodology that were used in the forecast, thereby ensuring transparency of the forecasting process.
