Report Description

Global Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device market was valued at US$ 2,475.2 million in 2019 and is anticipated to witness very high growth in 2020 and would reach a market size of US$ 3,425.0 million by the end of 2020. Further, the market is expected to witness a CAGR growth of 8.62% during the 2021-2026 period. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Devices are majorly utilized for the treatment of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition that occurs due to the repeated stop and start of the breathing. It may also lead to snoring and daytime sleepiness. This condition has no cure but can be treated with CPAP devices. By 2050, the population is estimated to reach 10 billion on earth, compared to 7.7 billion today. With the rising advancement in science, the life span of people is also increasing. As a result, the number of elderly people per 100 will reach 58 in 2060 from 20 in 1980. The changing demographics will drive the market growth of CPAP devices as sleep apnea is more prevalent in aged people. Moreover, increasing rates of obesity will lead to a higher prevalence of sleep apnea thus increasing the demand.


Apart from the above-mentioned factors, the world is suffering from a major crisis due to the shortage of ventilators for the treatment of COVID-19. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Devices are used in hospitals as this equipment can help the patients suffering from mild COVID-19. Rising demand for home care will increase the adoption of these devices as they can be operated in the home settings easily. However, the high cost of device and maintenance and poor adherence to CPAP will act as a restraint for the market growth. 3B Medical, Inc., Philips Respironics, Nidek medical, ResMed, Fisher and Paykel Healthcare, Teijin Pharma Limited, Drive Medical, Fosun Pharma, Koike Medical and BMC Medical Corporation are some of the prominent players operating in the Global Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Devices market. Several M&A’s along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate costumers with hi-tech and innovative products.
