Technological advancement is set to propel sleep apnea devices market growth during the forecast period. These advancements in oral appliances, oxygen devices, actigraphy systems have increased the sleep disorders treatment outcome and success rate. Industry players are focusing on research and development activities for developing innovative technologies. For instance, ResMed launched AirMini, the smallest PAP device that is connected to the remote patient monitoring platform of AirView. This device enable patients to see their data on their phones. Hence, the commercialization of such advanced devices will accelerate the market growth over the coming years.

Similarly, the recently introduced lightweight portable sleep apnea products are combined with pressure compensating sensors that can compensate altitude-related drops in atmospheric pressure, thereby increasing its adoption. Such devices are gaining popularity as it is delivering more choice and flexibility for patients. Thus, the use of technology-enabled sleep apnea devices for both diagnostic and treatment purposes in different sleep disorders is anticipated to upsurge significantly in the forthcoming years.

Sleep apnea devices are employed for managing and facilitating breathing in patients suffering from sleep disorders. Sleep apnea devices incorporate steady oxygen flow and assist the airway management, thereby facilitating normal breathing.

However, lack of adherence to sleep apnea treatment is amongst the major factors hampering the adoption of sleep apnea devices. Positive airway pressure sleep apnea devices are highly recommended for the treatment of different sleep disorders. Despite the high effectiveness of these devices, action efficacy is restricted in several cases attributable to it requiring accurate & regular usage and constant medical supervision. As per the National Center for Biotechnology Information published studies, around 29% - 83% of patients are not adherent with continuous positive airway pressure ventilation.

In the short run, this lack of adherence will be a major factor restricting sleep apnea devices market growth. However, in the long run, it will not have a very significant impact as the manufacturers emphasize making their products technologically advanced and reducing the drawbacks related to their adherence to sleep apnea treatment.

The COVID-19 arose as an unprecedented public health concern that has affected over millions of individuals worldwide causing significant mortalities. The lockdowns were imposed in the majority of the countries to curb the further transmission of SARS-CoV-2. Hospital admissions and facilities were delivered to the COVID patients on a priority basis, with the majority of the other medical procedures on halt.

In the initial 2020, the incidence, as well as the mortality rate due to coronavirus was highest and people preferred to avoid any other treatment procedures at such facilities. Scheduled appointments and the majority of other disease conditions comprising sleep disorders were referred to as non-emergent. Thus, the unprecedented effect of COVID-19 has affected the use of sleep apnea devices in 2020 however, the market gradually risen from second half of 2021 and is expected to grow considerably in the coming years.  

However, the use of sleep apnea devices, especially in home care settings was increased during the pandemic period. Heavy patient inflow and rising pressure on healthcare facilities surged the adoption of these devices in home care settings in order to treat sleep disorders efficiently without visiting hospitals. The favourable initiatives employed during COVID-19 have also contributed to the significant product demand. For instance, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine published guidelines associated with the sleep diseases management of individuals infected with coronavirus infection.

Further, in response to COVID-19, treatment of such diseases is being restructured to ensure that patients receive an easy access to sleep facilities and other health care providers with required resources. Thus, the market growth was hampered in the initial phase of 2020; however, the surged demand for home care and favourable initiatives are anticipated to uplift the sleep apnea devices market sales in the coming years positively.

Growing prevalence of sleep apnea and related co-morbidities is expected to fuel the market statistics

The rising prevalence of sleep disorders and related co-morbidities are expected to boost the market revenue significantly. The rapidly growing geriatric population suffering from sleep apnea and associated health conditions have accelerated the demand for sleep disorders diagnosis & treatment that has further propelled the sleep apnea devices market revenue positively.

Sleep disorders comprising obstructive sleep apnea is the most common sleep-related breathing disorder that promotes substantial disease burden. These conditions inflict health care costs and affect the health-associated quality of life. As per the American Sleep Apnea Association (ASAA) data published in 2019, around 22 million people were suffering from sleep apnea in the U.S.

According to the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology Journal 2020, one-seventh of the global adult population, or around 1 billion people, are estimated to have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Hence, owing to the above statistics, the rising prevalence of sleep apnea and related co-morbidities is set to increase the demand for sleep apnea devices that will prove beneficial for sleep apnea devices market expansion.
