Home Sleep Apnea Testing Devices Market Size

Home Sleep Apnea Testing Devices Market size registered revenue over USD 810 million in 2021. The industry is projected to depict a CAGR of 16.8% through 2030, given the rising risks of chronic conditions such as heart diseases among patients with sleep disorders.

Home Sleep Apnea Testing Devices Market

Sleep apnea tests can diagnose and calculate disease severity by monitoring the oxygen and breathing levels to measure the pauses in breathing across homecare settings. The rising number of patients diagnosed with sleep disorders and other associated co-morbidities will stimulate home sleep apnea testing devices market expansion. According to data from the American Sleep Association, nearly 50 million to 70 million U.S. adults have a sleep disorder, of which, 25 million are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.

This expanding patient population is opting for devices with reliable and ergonomic designs that aid seamless at-home sleep apnea testing. For example, advanced, wearable sleep apnea testing devices with a user-friendly design, such as Lofta WatchPAT, have been made available for adults. The industry will therefore witness a strong growth trajectory, further influenced by the growing awareness about home sleep apnea tests among consumers.

Telemedicine has undergone technological advancements over recent years, ensuring seamless access to cost-effective treatments for sleep apnea and other diseases. As an alternative to traditional sleep studies conducted in labs, telemedicine options such as at-home sleep studies are becoming available to diagnose disease symptoms. It can also help patients select the right CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) device and access ongoing monitoring. These innovations in telemedicine technologies will generate lucrative opportunities for market growth over the forecast period.

Strict regulatory norms to hamper the home sleep apnea testing devices market share

Government agencies have introduced stringent regulatory frameworks associated with the use of home sleep apnea devices. For example, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has implemented exhaustive approval procedures and extremely rigid regulatory compliances for these devices. They are also classified as Class II devices due to their potential risks. Over the years, there have been product recalls, considering the health risks of exposure to chemicals and particulates, including asthma and respiratory tract irritation. These factors may create a hindrance to the development of home sleep test devices worldwide.

Global Home Sleep Apnea Testing Devices Market Share, By Test Type

Based on test type, the market is divided into type 2, type 3, and type 4. Consumer preference for type 3 tests is rising, due to portability and ease of use. Their high sensitivity and specificity also aid in the accurate diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea. Additionally, the introduction of novel type 3 tests with greater convenience and lower technical complexity has increased considerably. These factors will foster industry expansion from the type 3 segment, which held a 65% revenue share in 2021 and will be valued at over USD 2,240 million by 2030.

Global Home Sleep Apnea Testing Devices Market Share, By Region

On the regional front, North America will emerge as a lucrative revenue pocket for the home sleep apnea testing devices market and record revenue of over USD 1,100 million by 2030, which can be credited to the robust presence of key product manufacturers. Furthermore, an increase in the prevalence of sleep disorders has been observed across the region. To limit the disease burden, patients are emphasizing early-stage diagnosis through the usage of home testing devices.

In countries including the U.S., symptoms of sleep apnea such as trouble concentrating, chronic headaches, and interrupted sleep are observed among several people. As per 2022 data from the Sleep Foundation, nearly 17% of women and 34% of men are diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea in the U.S. As a result, home sleep apnea monitoring devices will emerge as a significant diagnostic tool, thereby stimulating regional industry dynamics.

COVID-19 Impact

The novel COVID-19 pandemic has posed unprecedented health concerns and asserted an adverse impact on home sleep apnea testing device manufacturers in the early months of 2020. In the initial stages of the pandemic, non-emergency treatments were delayed due to the imposition of lockdowns and other restrictions. To reduce disease transmission risks, people also preferred to avoid non-COVID-related treatment procedures. However, with the gradual ease of restrictions from the crisis in 2021, the adoption of home sleep testing equipment is likely to rise steadily, creating strong potential for global industry expansion over the forthcoming years.
