Nasal Irrigation Market Trends Growth Drivers Insights

Global Nasal Irrigation Market is projected to reach USD billion by 2029, with growth at a CAGR of 6.54% during the forecast period 2022-2029. Nasal irrigation (also known as nasal lavage, nasal toilet, or nasal douche) is a personal hygiene practice that involves washing the nasal cavity to remove mucus and debris from the nose and sinuses and improve nasal breathing. Nasal irrigation can also moisten the mucous membranes with saline nasal spray or nebulizers.

Market Dynamics

The factors influencing the global nasal irrigation market are the rising practice of washing the nasal cavity and the increasing demand for nasal irrigation.

The rising practice of washing the nasal cavity is expected to drive the market growth

Nasal irrigation (NI) is an ancient upper respiratory tract treatment that is thought to have originated in Ayurvedic medicine. It's used to treat and prevent upper respiratory tract infections in children. It's used alone or with other treatments for various conditions, including chronic rhinosinusitis and allergic rhinitis. Furthermore, it has been prescribed to treat and prevent upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) in children. Otolaryngologists and pediatricians consider NI very effective because it has been linked to a significant reduction in both the signs and symptoms of rhinosinusitis and the prescription of drugs commonly used to treat these conditions.

The most common commercial preparations for NI are isotonic saline (0.9 percent) and hypertonic saline (1.5 percent to 3 percent). Both are acidic, with pH levels ranging between 4.5 and 7. Although the emergence of adverse events due to hypertonicity such as pain, blockage, and rhinorrhea has been demonstrated to be dose-dependent and only occurs when the NaCl concentration is less than 5.4 percent, solutions with NaCl concentrations higher than 3 percent are not recommended.

The side effects associated with nasal irrigators are expected to hamper the market growth

Nasal irritation, nosebleeds, headaches, and drainage are some of the side effects of irrigation. Most people tolerate it well. If the water is not sterile or the device is not cleaned after use, there is a risk of infection. When the device is misused, it can be dangerous. The use of boiled or saline water is recommended for proper application. A patient was diagnosed with Balamuthia mandrillaris after using tap water filtered through a Brita water purifier for nasal irrigation for one month in 2018. Nasal insufflation of the amoeba has resulted in rare cases of fatal naegleriasis. Untreated tap water contains Naegleria fowleri (the "brain-eating amoeba").

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The abundant blood vessels, mucinous glands, and serous glands that create a humid environment make the nasal mucosa vulnerable to coronavirus to colonize. The basal layer of the non-keratinizing squamous epithelium in nasal mucosa expressed angiotensin-converting enzyme-2 (ACE2), indicating that coronavirus could infect nasal mucosa cells if the basal layer is exposed due to nasal mucosa barrier breakdown. Human coronavirus usually causes ciliary dyskinesia and disruption of the ciliated epithelium. Mucociliary clearance is likely to be hampered as a result of this. Coronavirus infection can cause damage to the respiratory epithelium without causing overt clinical symptoms. As a result, it is critical to focus on the upper respiratory tract and mucosa protection. SNIs (Saline Nasal Irrigations) are frequently recommended as a non-pharmacological preventive strategy for cleaning the nasal cavities by removing antigens, inflammatory mediators, and microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses; in particular, SNIs can reduce the viral load in the nasal cavities. There are currently only a few studies in the scientific literature on SNI as a preventive strategy for upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs). Hence, covid-19 is expected to positively impact the global nasal irrigation market.

Segment Analysis

Manual Nasal Irrigators segment is expected to dominate the market growth

Nasal irrigation can be accomplished with a variety of products. A bulb syringe, squeeze bottle, or neti pot are basic. The user manually pours or sprays a mixture of salt and water into the nostril with these devices. The fluid travels from one nostril to the other through the nasal cavity. Nasal irrigation can be accomplished with a variety of products. A bulb syringe, squeeze bottle, or neti pot are basic. The user manually pours or sprays a mixture of salt and water into the nostril with these devices. The fluid travels from one nostril to the other through the nasal cavity. Many homes now have small teapots with long spouts to help people breathe easier by flushing out clogged nasal passages. These devices, also known as neti pots, use a saline or saltwater solution to treat congested sinuses, colds, and allergies, like other nasal irrigation devices. They can also be used to lubricate nasal passages that have been exposed to dry indoor air. But be cautious. Use of neti pots and other nasal irrigation devices incorrectly can increase the risk of infection.
