Sales Analysis of Market from 2015 to 2022 Vs Market Outlook for 2023 to 2033

The global market recorded a historic CAGR of 5.6% in the last 7 years from 2015 to 2022.

Oxygen is an important requirement for people suffering from respiratory disorders. Most respiratory disorders are chronic in nature and their treatment requires a constant demand for drugs and other necessary services like hospital ventilators. People in high-income countries are more susceptible to suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) due to high levels of pollution and rapid lifestyle changes. The WHO also noted that mortality due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is likely to increase in the coming years due to ageing populations and higher smoking prevalence in newly developing countries.

The CPAP industry is getting a burst of desperate orders from China, Italy, Germany and the United States for the management of patients with severe respiratory illnesses. During COVID-19 pandemic, the FDA issued a wide-ranging emergency policy allowing alternative devices such as CPAP to be used as potentially life-saving ventilators.

Therefore, the manufacturers are also focusing on boosting up their ventilator manufacturing capacity. For instance, companies such as Medtronic, Koninklijke Philips N.V., and Resmed planned to expand their CPAP production by more than 40%-to supply CPAP in response to the urgent needs across the globe confronting COVID-19.

The global market is likely to show high growth over the coming years at a CAGR of 6.0% and reach a global market size of US$ 6.7 Billion by 2033.

How Can the Global Market Grow?

Rising prevalence of chronic respiratory diseases

One of the main causes of illness and mortality globally, chronic respiratory disorders (CRDs) affect the airways and other lung components. Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), occupational lung disorders and lung cancer are a few of the most prevalent chronic respiratory illnesses. According to WHO, in 2019, globally 3.23 million deaths were caused due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The worldwide patient pool for coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic has positively impacted the market. According to WHO, globally as of 21 February 2023, there have been 757,264,511 confirmed cases of COVID-19 including 6,850,594 deaths. The death rate is more often found in the geriatric population. The growing incidence of coronavirus disease increased the demand for medicines as well as medical ventilators.

As a result, the manufacturers of medical CPAP and governments have adopted drastic measures to produce more numbers of CPAP, thereby increasing the sales of CPAP devices.

Can the Market Growth Be Affected in Any Way?

Availability of Alternative Treatment for Sleep Apnea

One of the most common respiratory disorders associated with sleep is OSA. For the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), oral appliances have become a viable alternative to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP).

A mandibular advancing device, also known as a mandibular repositioning appliance, is the most popular type of oral treatment for sleep apnea. Therefore, it is anticipated that demand for alternative treatment choices may impede the market's expansion for continuous positive air pressure devices.

There is a notion that snoring or being sleepy is natural, people do not correlate sleep apnea with its numerous dangerous comorbidities, such as increased incidence of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and accidents, and the general population is unaware of the health risks associated with OSA. Hence, a large proportion of OSA is undiagnosed despite the technological advancements in the diagnosis.

Thus, the availability of alternative treatments and negligence by people to avoid using devices may hamper the growth of the market in the forecasted period.

How is China Emerging as a Prominent Market?

“Rise in geriatric population and obstructive sleep apnea disease”

China held a market share of about 6.7% of the global market in 2022. One of the world's fastest-growing ageing populations is in China. According to WHO, due to rising life expectancy and falling birth rates, 28% of China's population is expected to be over 60 by 2040. According to the International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, 13.7% of the population in China is projected to have COPD, which translates to 99.9 million individuals. COPD will continue to be a major source of illness and mortality with considerable economic and social burden implications on public health because of rising life expectancy and lifestyle changes.

As a result, with the increasing life expectancy and prevalence of COPD, the demand for continuous positive airway pressure devices also increases.

Category-wise Insights

Which Product is Driving Demand within the Global Market?

“Enhancement and Creating Compact and Secure Products”

The CPAP devices product segment held a share of 51.3% in the total global market in 2022.

A continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine as a product segment is leading because it is one of the most widely used forms of treatment for sleep apnea. It works by keeping the patient's airways open while they sleep so they can receive oxygen for optimal function, which can greatly enhance their sleep and lower their risk of developing a number of health problems.

Which Application is Widely in Focus in the Global Market?

“Benefits of CPAP Devices in Treating OSA”

When the upper airway is partially or completely blocked while sleeping, this is considered obstructive sleep apnea. Opening the airway and bringing air into the lungs requires more effort from the diaphragm and chest muscles. It might even cause short-stop breathing if regular breathing becomes extremely shallow. A loud gasp, snort, or body jerk typically signals the beginning of a new breath.

The breathing pauses brought on by sleep apnea are avoided using CPAP devices. In addition, these devices also get rid of the negative symptoms of sleep apnea. Increased quality of sleep, reduced risk of stroke and heart attack, and decrease in tiredness are some of the benefits of CPAP devices. These benefits of CPAP devices in treating obstructive sleep apnea is responsible for segment growth.

Which End User Propels the Global Sales in the Market?

“Hospital to Serve Large Patient Pool”

The hospital by end user held a share of 54.5% in 2022, within the global market.

A prominent factor driving the hospital segment is the vast patient pool of people who suffer from chronic diseases that include COPD, asthma and sleep disorders that hospitals around the world treat. Due to the rising number of private hospitals and the advantageous reimbursement rules, the hospital segment holds a prominent share of the global market.
