Sleep Evaluation Devices Market Estimated to Have High Growth Potential During Forecast Period

  • 20 Jun 2019

Global sleep evaluation market to value over US$ 7 billion by 2026, and register a CAGR of over 10% during 2018-2026. 

To collect information, record and analyse sleep schedules has always been an important element in medical sciences. The laboratory polysomnography has been the set standard to analyse sleeping pattern. There was a wide scope to explore the domain of portable monitoring devices that assess sleep schedules in real-world environments. These portable instruments allow easy data collection and recognise patterns. The portable devices incorporate technology such as touch-free life care system, Bioharness, health vest (smart life tech), Radiofrequency monitor, smart shirt, wrist device (AMON) and Zio, etc.

The most common sleeping disorder is Apnea which raised more concern and demand for the products of this specific market. It is a disorder where the body and brain receive insufficient oxygen and breathing process is disrupted during sleep. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common form of apnea which is caused by blockage of the air passage. In order to prevent this and find a cure, it is necessary for patients to undergo diagnostic tests and use therapeutic devices for complete analysis and severity of the problem. This disorder is prevalent in the elderly population, giving the geriatric tendency, and remains underdiagnosed owing to factors like lack of awareness and non-specific presentation of the disease.
The initiatives to make the public more aware and increasing prevalence of sleep disorders along with the need for the efficient diagnosis will promote revenue growth. Introduction of technological advancements in the sphere of patient safety is expected to increase device reach and business especially in the developed markets of North America. High market penetration along with new government initiatives aimed at minimising healthcare expenditure are some factors expected to drive regional market growth during the forecast period.


The National Healthy Sleep Awareness Project states that obstructive sleep disorders affect more than 25 million people in the U.S. and is a chronic disease that adversely affects public health and is a primary health concern. The major factors driving the growth of the sleep evaluation devices market are primarily a large pool of undiagnosed sleep apnea patients, growing awareness about the ill effects of untreated sleep apnea, technological advancements in manufacturing devices, considerable venture capital funding, and an increasing number of companies venturing into sleep apnea and oral appliances markets.

Sleep disorders increase with an increase in age. According to estimates published in 2012 by the UN, the global geriatric population was nearly 809.4 million and is expected to grow more than double by 2050. Thus the patients affected by sleep disorders is also expected to increase leading to demand sleep evaluation devices as well.
