Global Growth Influencing Factors:
Growth in the sleep apnea devices market can be attributed to factors such as a large pool of undiagnosed sleep apnea patients, growing awareness about the ill effects of untreated sleep apnea, growing usage of oral appliances, technological advancements in sleep apnea devices, influx of venture capital funding, and the increasing number of companies venturing into sleep apnea and oral appliances markets. Also, there are growth opportunities for the market due to the increasing demand for home healthcare and increasing focus on telemedicine and mHealth (mobile Health).
