Sleep apnea is a disorder, wherein breathing is disturbed during sleep due to oxygen insufficiency in the body and brain. This can lead to airway blockage called obstructive sleep apnea. Certain diagnostic tests and therapeutic devices are used by doctors and patients to treat these conditions. Sleep apnea is the most common disorder among the geriatric population and remains undiagnosed most of the times due to lack of awareness and improper diagnosis. Rise in awareness about sleep apnea, availability of advanced oral appliances, lack of proper diagnosis of sleep apnea, and increase in popularity of sleep apnea oral appliances over conventional methods fuel the growth of the global sleep apnea oral appliances market. However, complications associated with their referral pathways and restricted access to sleep centers hamper the growth of the sleep apnea oral appliances market.
The global sleep apnea oral appliances market is driven by rise in popularity of sleep apnea oral appliances in the management of sleep apnea disorders, increase in incidence of sleep apnea, and surge in awareness among patients.
