"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
Sleep apnea referred to as a sleep disorder, which can be potentially serious, wherein the breathing of the individual repeatedly stops or interrupted and then starts again. Sleep apnea can be classified into three types: central sleep apnea, complex sleep apnea syndrome, and obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form. In many instances of sleep apnea, the symptoms of obstructive and central sleep apnea overlap with each other, making it hard to distinguish the type of sleep apnea.
Some of the common symptoms of both the disorders include episodes of individual stops breathing while sleeping, loud snoring, gasping for breath during sleep, headaches in the morning, insomnia at night and excessive drowsiness during the day. Some of the factors contributing to individuals at risk of being diagnosed with sleep apnea include obesity, aging, male, familial history, narrow neck circumference, nasal congestion, smoking and usage of alcohol & sedatives. Sleep apnea devices such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) help in the alleviation of the symptoms of sleep apnea, but if left completely untreated it may lead to complications such as fatigue, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and metabolic syndrome. The increasing prevalence of sleep apnea among individuals is one of the key reasons for the positive growth of the sleep apnea devices market.

The global sleep apnea devices market is anticipated to grow, owing to several factors such as the increased prevalence of sleep apnea, increase in the prevalence of lifestyle disorders such as obesity, and rising geriatric population. Moreover, increased government initiatives, demand for advanced medical technologies, increased funding for research & development activities, greater demand for homecare treatment solutions, and increasing awareness regarding sleep apnea are some other factors expected to drive the market growth. The National Sleep Foundation estimated that more than 18 million Americans have sleep apnea across all ages and sexes, with the childhood prevalence of sleep apnea estimated to be at least 2-3%, which may go higher up to 20-30% in habitually snoring children. These trends, combined with the other factors, are expected to drive the market growth positively.
The factors limiting the growth of the global sleep apnea devices market includes the expensiveness of the devices, the availability of alternatives, and stringent regulations for the production of devices.
Some of the major companies that are present in the global sleep apnea devices market are GENERAL ELECTRIC, Cadwell Industries, Inc., Oventus, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Löwenstein Medical GmbH & Co. KG., ResMed, Braebon Medical Corporation, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Limited., SomnoMed and Compumedics Limited, and others.
