Sleep disorder, also known as somnipathy, is a medical condition wherein a disorder is generated in the sleep pattern. It can also be defined as a group of disorders that impact the sleep pattern on a regular basis. Presence of sleep disorders can be attributed to various factors including health issues and high stress. Lack of sleep has a negative impact on the overall health of a person and his/her level of concentration. It leads to tiredness throughout the day. Common types of sleep disorder prevalent include sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy, sleep walking, and restless leg syndrome. The prevalence of sleep disorders has been significantly growing over the years, which is a primary factor driving the market. For instance, in the U.S., over 75% of people aged between 20 and 59 years have sleeping difficulties frequently.
The sleep disorders market is anticipated to expand at a robust pace during the forecast period, owing to significant rise in the prevalence of sleep disorders. According to the American Sleep Association, in 2015, over 21% of women in the U.S. were suffering from obstructive sleep apnea and over 34% of men were suffering from sleep apnea. The increasing usage of social media and growing addiction of gadgets such as smartphones and laptops augment the market. In addition, the rise in public and private health coverage, covering the sleep clinics are fueling the market. Furthermore, ongoing research on ill-effects of sleep deprivation and the growing adoption of sleep clinics are boosting the market. However, increase in patent expirations, emergence of generics, and side-effects associated with sleep disorder drugs may hamper the market in the near future.
