Continuous positive airway pressure therapy is the most common treatment for obstructive sleep apnea that uses constant mild air pressure. These continuous positive airway pressure devices are used to keep the airways open while sleeping and also to control the output pressure by keeping the airflow pressure unbroken. The global continuous positive airway pressure devices market is growing at a steady pace and offers high growth opportunities for market players during the forecast period. One of the major drivers of the global market is high prevalence of sleep disorders. As per the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, it is estimated that over 350 Mn people worldwide suffer from sleep apnea. Thus, the growing awareness of sleep apnea and related comorbid conditions such as high blood pressure, and obesity have led to increased demand for continuous positive airway pressure devices. Similarly, advances in technology such as use of oxygen devices, improved mask design and oral appliances are expected to provide support and propel the growth of the global continuous positive airway pressure market.
Though delivery of continuous positive airway pressure through a nasal mask is the most common modality of treatment, other systems exist for interfacing with adults and children. Nasal continuous positive airway pressure is regularly used in infants, however its use is debatable. Studies have revealed nasal continuous positive airway pressure reduces ventilator time but an augmented incidence of pneumothorax was also prevalent. Oral masks and naso-oral masks are frequently used when nasal congestion or obstruction is an issue. Devices which combine nasal pressure with maxillary advancement devices (MAD) also exist. The continuous positive airway pressure device requires to be used every night. Some patients complain of nasal congestion, mask discomfort, and nose and throat dryness when using continuous positive airway pressure. Others find the device to be too cumbersome and constrictive, particularly when travelling. Unfortunately, these complaints sometimes lead to inconsistent use or abandonment of the device altogether. Proper mask fitting and use of a humidifier can resolve these issues.
Geographically, continuous positive airway pressure devices market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. The continuous positive airway pressure devices market is currently dominated by the Americas, accounting for more than half market share, followed by the Middle East & Africa region and the Asia Pacific region. In the Americas, the U.S. was the largest revenue contributor because of the increased diagnosis of sleep apnea in patients. Similarly, Asia Pacific expected to witness higher growth in continuous positive airway pressure devices market due to increasing disease prevalence in the countries like India and China. The market will typically witness a higher growth rate in countries such as the Germany, Spain, U.K., Italy and France. The continuous positive airway pressure devices market in the U.K. is developed and well-established, and is comparatively it is easier to enter the market for new players, making the positive airway pressure devices market in the country more prominent than in any other European countries. The growth of this market in Europe is attributed to well-defined regulatory guidelines and increasing prevalence of sleep apnea during the forecast period.
Continuous positive airway pressure devices market is dominated by big players while the remaining market is fragmented. The dominating players compete based on factors such as product features, price and reliability.
