Pleural effusion is an abnormal condition in which excess fluid is present in the layers of pleura outside the lungs. In a normal condition, a small amount of fluid is already present in pleura in order to smoothen the breathing process. The treatment of pleural effusion includes removal of excess water from the lungs and diagnosing the cause of accumulating excess water in the lung and treating it. Certain causes such as heart failure, lung cancer, breast cancer, cirrhosis, leukemia, pulmonary embolism, kidney disease, lung infections, and ruptured esophagus are responsible for pleural effusion. According to the Labor Force Survey, 18,000 new cases in the U.K. are diagnosed with lung or breathing problem every year. 

Rising prevalence of pleural effusion is a significant factor propelling the growth of the global pleural effusion treatment market. Also, the rising prevalence of lung injuries, lung tumors, congestive heart failure, and lymph or blood vessels blockages are further expected to expand the prevalence of pleural effusion. According to the European Society of Cardiology in 2014, an estimated 26 million people are suffering from heart failure worldwide.
