Sleep Apnea Implants Market

2019 Analysis and Review of Sleep Apnea Implants Market by Product - Phrenic Nerve Stimulator, Hypoglossal Neurostimulation Devices, Bone Screw Implant System, and Palatal Implants/Pillar Procedure for 2019 - 2029

Hypoglossal Neurostimulation Devices Remain Highly Preferred

Hypoglossal neuro stimulation (HNS), a relatively new advancement, minimally invasive solution, and entirely different approach to treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), is expected to witness higher demand as compared to other sleep apnea implants.

With growing number of patients who are not helped by positive air pressure devices such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), doctors are turning to hypoglossal nerve stimulation devices for improved patients’ sleep apnea symptoms. Accounting for 80% of the total revenue share, the category is further witnessing higher innovation and investment.

North America Remains the Most Promising Market

North America will continue to maintain its lead in the sleep apnea implants market, and it is on track to account for 85% of total revenue by 2021. As a growing amount of research suggested that not getting enough sleep increases the risk of common lifestyle diseases such as obesity and diabetes, patients are increasingly spending on sleep aids.

Additionally, realizing a growing opportunity for innovation in the space, a number of startups in the region are leveraging technologies to solve existing problems in the sleep industry and to carve out a slice of the market. While the adoption rate is picking pace in emerging markets, revenue share will continue to remain low over the forecast period (2019-29).

White Spaces in Application and Regulatory Approvals to Dictate Stakeholders’ Strategies

By helping patients sleep better, sleep tech is set to be the next step in human development and longevity, while regulatory and economic pressure are changing the way sleep disorder patients are diagnosed and treated The emergence of wearble sleep trackers and non-wearable sleep trackers have revolutionised the sleep screening techniques.

Key players in the sleep apnea implants market are continually focusing on leveraging and identifying white spaces in application of their products, ranging from narcolepsy to different types of OSA. Faster regulatory approval of a wide range of new products also remains a key focus area of the both incumbent companies and new entrants. For instance, Beddr is seeking FDA approval for its Sleep Tuner, a stamp-size sensor that measures heart rate and oxygen saturation levels in sleep apnea patients.

How Growth will Unfold

Over the past years, adoption of sleep apnea implants in ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) accounted for relatively high revenue share, owing to robust development in both medical and sleep technologies and significant advances in ASCs. However, in 2020, demand from hospitals is surpassing that of ASCs, leading to realignment of manufacturers’ strategies.

This growth remains driven by increasing government spending on healthcare infrastructure, especially in developing countries. However, it is also pertinent to note that, increased cost of devices and sleep apnea treatment has added to reluctance of patients in these countries.


What are the current trends contributing to the growth of the sleep apnea implants market?

Portfolio expansion through acquisition and mergers, new product development and customer-centric approach are the major trends contributing to the market growth. Increasing rejection rate of CPAP devices is expected to significantly benefit the sleep apnea implants market.

What are the strategies of new entrants in the sleep apnea implants market?

New launches focusing on cost-effectiveness of bone screw implant system, pillar procedure for sleep disorder treatments and extended service life of therapeutic devices are the focal points of new market entrants. These entrants are also working on effective pricing strategy utilizing price point analysis. 

Which application segment is leading the sleep apnea implants market?

By application, sleep apnea implants are gaining traction for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea. This is due to more usability of devices and increased demand from customers as compared to other sleep apnea treatment types, adoption fueled by raising reimbursement from private payers.

Which type of implants has remarkable growth potential during the forecast period?

Recent FDA approvals for hypoglossal neurostimulation sleep apnea implants exert traction in the adoption rate for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Which region is expected to be lucrative for investments during the forecast period?

Countries in Asia including Japan, China, and Singapore are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for market growth. Companies are strategically focusing on distribution partnership with local players.

How is the competitive scenario in the sleep apnea implants market?

Manufacturers are focusing on research and development of advanced sleep apnea implant devices. The global sleep apnea implants market is dominated by leading sleep apnea implant players namely, Inspire Medical Systems, Respicardia
