Sleep Apnea Implants Market Research, 2031
The global sleep apnea implants market was valued at $314.3 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $1.3 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 15.4% from 2022 to 2031. Sleep apnea is a common condition in which the breathing stops and restarts many times while in sleep. This can prevent the body from getting enough oxygen. There are two types of sleep apnea namely, obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea happens when the upper airway becomes blocked many times while in sleep, reducing or completely stopping airflow. Central sleep apnea happens when the brain does not send the signals needed to breathe. The health conditions that affect how the brain controls the airway and chest muscles can cause central sleep apnea. These conditions can be well treated with the help of sleep apnea implant device. A sleep apnea implant is a device that helps to breathe during sleep.
The market was analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2021-2031. The sleep apnea implants market grew at a CAGR of around 15.9% during 2022-2031. Most of the growth during this period was derived from the North America owing to the improving health awareness, rising disposable incomes, as well as well-established presence of domestic companies in the region.
Growth & innovations in the medical device industry for the manufacturing of sleep apnea implants owing to massive pool of sleep apnea incidences that creates an Sleep Apnea Implants Market Opportunity. Rise in launch of implant devices made up of advanced technology by various key players across the globe is set to affect the market growth positively. For instance, in May 2019, Siesta Medical announced that U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its Encore System for extended indications. The Encore System was employed in AIRLIFT hyoid suspension that is used to treat airway obstructions and obstructive sleep apnea severity. This development helped the company to drive its revenue generation thereby improving the growth. The growth of the Sleep Apnea Implants Market Size is also expected to be driven by high potential in untapped, emerging markets, due to availability of improved healthcare infrastructure, increase in unmet healthcare needs, rise in prevalence of sleep apnea, and surge in demand for sleep apnea implants. Furthermore, the healthcare industry in emerging economies is developing at a significant rate, owing to rise in demand for enhanced healthcare and surgical services, significant investments by government to improve healthcare infrastructure, and development of the medical technology industry in emerging countries. E-commerce (electronic commerce) has become a vital tool for small and large businesses globally, due to rise in preference of consumers for online shopping over traditional purchasing methods during the pandemic. This is attributed to further supports market growth. The demand for sleep apnea implants is not only limited to developed countries but is also being witnessed in the developing countries, such as China, Brazil, and India, which fuel the growth of the Sleep Apnea Implants Market Size. Factors such as rise in adoption of respiratory testing kits, and increase in awareness towards sleep apnea, further drive the growth of the market. Furthermore, rise in consumer awareness related to treatment procedures for sleep apnea and ease of accessibility of the implant procedures boost the adoption of sleep apnea implants. Moreover, increase in promotional activities by manufacturers and various strategies that maybe be adopted by the market player for the expansion of the business are expected to fuel the growth of the sleep apnea implants market in the near future.
Though the use of treatment options like sleep apnea implant devices has propelled a changeover trend among the patients from using continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices to sleep implant devices, there is still a long way for this paradigm shift to take total effect as the device and procedure cost concerns for the implantation is creating an enormous downfall in the Sleep Apnea Implants Market Growth. For instance, in 2019, the Inspire Medical System’s hypoglossal nerve stimulation implant was priced at $23,800 in the U.S. & $23,400 in Europe. All it lead to is one major drawback for patients that they were unable to afford it and that affected in the decrease in the demand of the devices among the populations and also among the healthcare providers. Moreover, the unfavorable regulatory scenarios of the products used for testing is also anticipated to hamper the growth of the market.
The COVID-19 pandemic affected the sleep apnea implants industry in a negative way, like various other medical device industries were affected. The COVID-19 has affected the medical device companies by hampering supply chain. The pandemic slowed down the growth of the sleep apnea implants market amidst the initial phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, in the first half of 2020. Moreover, to control the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the national emergencies and lockdowns were enforced in several countries. It is due to the increase in cases of COVID-19 each day globally. Moreover, The pandemic has significantly affected surgical procedures resulting in a decrease in surgical procedures and implantations across the world. For instance, according the article published by the NHS England in August 2022, there were more than 22,500 people who had been waiting two years or more at the start of the year, and a further 51,000 who would have breached two years by the end of July to have also been treated. In addition, the market growth was also affected by various transport restrictions imposed globally to curb the spread of the pandemic.
The global sleep apnea implants market is segmented based on product type, indication, end user and region. On the basis of product type, the market is classified into hypoglossal neurostimulation devices, phrenic nerve stimulator and others.
