To determine the size of the US CPAP Masks market in terms of revenue and the number of units, we examined several industry reports from MarketWatch, PR Newswire, GlobeNewswire, Markets Insider, and Marketquest.biz, among others. However, we only found global information in terms of revenue. While some reports indicated that sales and regional values were available, they were behind a paywall. As such, we could not compute the data. We then resorted to triangulating the data since we already had the global value, as provided below.
Assumptions & Calculations
- The 2020 Global CPAP Masks market size = $2,020.8 million.
- North America held the largest share of this market in 2018. However, the available reports did not disclose the market share. North America also represented the largest market share for the larger CPAP Devices market at around 35%. We then assumed the percentage to be the same for the Global CPAP Masks market since it is a segment of the CPAP Devices market.
- Using this assumption, the 2020 CPAP Masks market size in North America = 2020 Global CPAP Masks market size x the market share of North America.
- Thus, the 2020 CPAP Masks market size in North America = $2020.8 million x 35% = $707.28 million.
- The sleep apnea devices market comprises around 50% of the CPAP Devices market globally. It is a major driver of the Global CPAP Masks market. As such, we used this market as a proxy to determine the US market share of the 2020 CPAP Masks market in North America.
- The US has the largest share of the CPAP Devices market in North America and globally due to the high awareness level of sleep apnea patients. Assuming the US CPAP Masks market mirrors the same market share of the Sleep Apnea Devices market in North America, we can determine its market size.
- In 2013, the US held 92.2% of the North American Sleep Apnea Devices market. However, in 2017, the size of the US Sleep Apnea Devices market was $2.6 billion, and North America comprised 51.5% of the global market valued at $5.9 billion. Thus, the size of the North American Sleep Apnea Devices market in 2017 was $5.9 billion x 51.5% = $3.04 billion. Similarly, the US market share in 2017 = ($2.6 billion / $3.04 billion) x 100% = 85.5%
- To obtain the annual growth rate, we computed the market shares in 2013 and 2017 over the four years from 2013 to 2017, i.e., (92.2% — 85.5%) / 4 = 6.7% / 4 = 1.675%.
- Thus, the US market share in 2020 would be the 2017 market share — (3 x annual growth rate) = 85.5% — (3 x 1.675%) = 85.5% — 5.025% = 80.48% in 2020.
- Assuming this market share, the 2020 US CPAP Masks market size = 2020 US CPAP Masks market share x 2020 CPAP Masks market size in North America.
The 2020 US CPAP Masks market size = 80.48% x $707.28 million. = $569.2 million
CPAP Mask Market Segmentation: United States
Hospitals and clinics in the United States represent 60% of the overall CPAP market in the year 2020. Meanwhile, there are between 9.33 million and 9.5 million CPAP users in the nation.
CPAP Mask Market
- According to data supplied by a UnivDatos report detailing a market analysis and forecast for the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) market, hospitals and clinics have a share of around 60% of the overall CPAP market.
- UnivDatos claims that the demand for CPAP masks is highest within clinics and hospitals because of the COVID-19 pandemic and its usage in the Neonatal Intensive Critical Unit, or NICU, for neonates with underdeveloped lungs. The complete report is locked behind a paywall.
- In 2018, there were an estimated 8 million users of CPAP masks in the United States, as stated by Bob Wilkins, CEO of SoClean (an automated CPAP sanitizer and cleaner). Presumably, this represents the “at-home use by consumers” segment of the market.
- Wilkins also stated that the number of Americans that use CPAP masks increases by between 8% to 9% every year. Currently, there are between 9.33 million and 9.5 million CPAP users in the United States, as of 2020 (see calculations).
- However, the number of potential CPAP users is estimated to be between 20 million to 30 million Americans, as of 2018.
- UnivDatos states that the usage of CPAP masks in home care is helping to improve market growth.
The report from Forbes claims that there were up to 8 million CPAP users in the nation in 2018, while the estimated growth rate was between 8% to 9%. To find the current number of CPAP users in the United States, we performed some simple multiplication using both of the growth rate figures and a reverse CAGR calculator.
Number of CPAP users in 2018 (starting value) = 8 million CAGR = 8% and 9% Number of periods = 2 years
The result for a growth rate of 8% over two years is 9.33 million, while the result for a growth rate of 9% over the same time period is 9.5 million.
