The leading categories CPAP disposables and respiratory disposables represent three-fourths of the market. CPAP masks, humidifier chambers and closed circuits are anticipated to be the most high growth segments in terms of volume. The substantial growth in CPAP mask is fuelled by a widening of reimbursement coverage, a 2% *increase in reimbursement prices and a surge in use of CPAP machines. The market is also governed by the changing preference for disposables over reusable ones. Moreover, the improved designs of CPAP masks have increased comfort and wearability, making it more attractive.

In future, the market is expected to be affected by a reduction in reimbursement-frequency and competitive bidding introduced under the Obama care. The market is also constrained by price pressure resulted from competition, lack of diagnosis and complications. Further, increased use of Minimally Invasive Techniques (MIS) that require anesthetic support has limited the market growth. But the fall would be restricted to an extent by an increase in the number of new patients opting for CPAP system. Also, the price erosion would be limited by better designed masks that would attract premium pricing.
