In terms of diagnostic devices, polysomnography (PSG) devices represented the top share in the market in the past and are predicted to touch US$788.7 mn by 2019. On the other hand, the segment of actigraphy systems is poised to hold the most lucrative opportunities in the market during the forecast period.

Increasing Inclination toward Customized Comfortable Devices to Bolster Demand for PAP Devices

On the basis of therapeutic devices, the segment of positive airway pressure (PAP) devices accounted for a significant share in the past. On the other hand, the segment of oral appliances is poised to exhibit the greatest growth rate of 11.80% during the forecast period. This is owing to the growing inclination toward comfortable custom made devices and the launch of economical devices with enhanced comfort levels.

In addition, sleep apnea is extremely prevalent in obese individuals owing to their airways becoming blocked or obstructed because of enlarged tongue and excessive fat around their neck. Hence, the growing occurrence of obesity will provide impetus to the development of the global sleep apnea diagnostic and therapeutic devices market. “The introduction of new technologies in both treatment and diagnosis will positively impact the growth of the market”, says a TMR analyst.
