Market Dynamics:


Growing aviation industry- The primary factors driving growth during the forecast period include an increase in air travellers, a rise in transit flights and frequency, and the addition of new routes worldwide, all made possible by the expanding aviation industry. The need for airport sleeping pods is also growing due to passengers' increasing demand for cutting-edge airport amenities.

Other factors anticipated to propel expansion include the growing number of airport capsule hotels and the growing need for waiting rooms due to increased air travel worldwide.


High cost of sleeping pods- The increased cost of the sleeping pod combined with the small number of manufacturers could inhibit demand and restrict the expansion of the global market. Sleeping pods these days cost, on average, between $8,000 and $12,000. Because of the outrageous price, most people and potential customers cannot afford it. Because of this, the demand for sleeping pods is mostly generated by corporate offices, airports, luxury hotels, and recreational facilities.


New product launches to flourish the market- Air New Zealand unveils the new sleeping pod concept for economy class passengers in 2020. After three years of research and development, Air New Zealand has produced Economy Skynest, which offers six full-length lie-flat sleeping pods.
