Smart Sleep Tracking Device Market : Global Size, Share, Trends, Growth and Forecast Year ( 2023 – 2032 )
Sleep tracking is typically the process of tracking and analyzing a person's sleep for gaining beneficial insights for the improvement of the quality of sleep. Devices used for this purpose are called sleep trackers. Smart sleep tracking devices are involved in providing detailed breakdown of sleep stages in the form of simple graphs. They are capable of tracking the stages of a person's sleep (light sleep, deep sleep, REM sleep), the length/duration of a person's sleep, the quality of a person's sleep and the consistency of a person's sleep.
They also offer other enhanced features, such as, tracking the heart rate, "sleep scores" that rank how well a person slept, "smart alarms" that wake a person up slowly within a set period of time based on the circumstances of the person's sleep and the ability to track the amount of light and/or temperature and humidity in the person's bedroom.
In addition, these devices also have many other features, such as sleep reminders, sleeping coaching and can also be effectively synchronized with a person’s breathing to play relaxing sounds with the help of a Smartphone.
The global smart sleep tracking device market is anticipated to grow a significant CAGR of around 18.2% over the period of next 5 years. The market was held at USD 11.0 Billion in 2019.
The growth of this market is attributed towards major relying factors including; the rising number of sleep related diseases such as sleep apnea, obesity, restless legs syndrome, insomnia etc. across the globe, the growing geriatric population worldwide coupled, the increasing expenditure on healthcare devices globally and the increasing awareness among people regarding the importance of getting their sleep patterns checked and regulated etc.
Additionally, the increasing research and development activities coupled with major technological advancements in tracking devices across the globe to improve their accuracy, compatibility and various other parameters are leading to new and improved product launches which are more compact, comfortable, and user-friendly.
