In the sleeping aids market, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices are being increasingly used by sleep apnea patients. These offer uninterrupted sleep to patients by controlling snoring. This device consists of a mask that is attached to a tube, along with a pump. The demand for these devices is increasing due to technological improvements, such as a mask that covers only the nose and use of soft material. CPAP humidifiers, which keep the inside-air moist, are a type of CPAP devices manufactured by companies such as ResMed Inc., Respironics Inc., and Koninklijke Philips N.V.

Governments and various private organizations are now increasingly investing in research and development activities to find a better treatment for sleep disorders. Numerous start-ups working on finding an effective way of controlling and preventing such disorders are being supported by governments of developing and developed nations alike. This has enabled the customers to access tailor-made therapies, sleep monitoring devices, and mobile apps. For instance, Oventus Medical won a $2,950,000 Australian federal government grant in February 2017 for research on sleep apnea.
