Nasal Pillow Market size is anticipated to experience considerable growth between 2022 and 2028. The expansion is primarily attributed to the affordable prices range of the product and the increasing number of patients with chronic respiratory disorders and pulmonary diseases across the globe.
An upswing in air pollution leading to deteriorating air quality will fuel the demand for nasal pillow masks in the coming years. A nasal pillow mask rests on the end of the nose and has an earbud-like structure that can be shoved directly inside the nostrils to deliver suggested pressure by keeping the airway open. These masks are immensely light-weighted, comfortable, cause no eye strain, have meager facial proximity, and are ideal for people with claustrophobia.
Increasing number of people suffering from sleep apnea in the U.S. coupled with the rise in healthcare expenditure will boost the market growth. As per a research report by AAST, about 22 million of the US population is suffering from sleep apnea with, over 80% of the severe to moderate cases being undiagnosed.
Furthermore, increasing efforts by several industry players to draw innovations in products will push the industry outlook during the forecast timeframe. On Aug 5, 2021, Resmed launched the next-generation PAP mask Airsense 11 for treating sleep apnea. The advanced digital features of these masks make them ideal to use at night and will help physicians provide coherent care.
In terms of products, nasal pillow mask market is segmented into nasal pillows, nasal cushions, masks, tubes, and others. Among these, nasal cushions may experience substantial expansion in the years ahead owing to their ability to outline the nose to prevent air leaks. These are ideal for side sleepers, people who toss and turn while sleeping, those with facial hairs and specs. They ensure minimal skin contact, provide better sight than other masks, and are better alternatives for claustrophobic people.
With regards to the end-use, the hospital segment is poised to register substantial growth over the forecast timeframe. The increasing number of patients with cardiovascular diseases, chronic pulmonary diseases, hypertension, and diabetes are likely to push the product demand driven by the prominent chances of being hospitalized for intensive care.
