  • Single occupancy segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The single occupancy segment accounted for the largest market share. The growth of the segment market can be largely attributed to its numerous advantageous characteristics and features, such as private and comfortable spaces for resting, customized amenities, higher flexibility, and hygiene and cleanliness, among others. In addition, it further helps to reduce congestion in terminal waiting areas, as an increased number of passengers utilize these pods for their convenience and are not occupying seats or lounges.

The shared segment is also expected to hold a substantial market share throughout the study period, mainly due to its cost-efficiently compared to private pods and hotel rooms attracts a significant number of passengers towards them coupled with the better space optimization, as they can easily accommodate more travelers in a smaller area than private ones.

By Module Analysis

  • Compact nap pods segment led the industry market in 2022

The compact nap pods segment led the industry market in terms of revenue in 2022, which is majorly driven by its growing popularity among travelers as a more comfortable and convenient solution to get some rest at airports. Besides this, as more travelers are becoming aware of the importance of relaxation during travel, the demand and adoption of compact nap pods are likely to grow drastically as they offer travelers a chance to rejuvenate during their journeys.

By End User Analysis

  • Adults segment is likely to witness highest growth throughout the forecast period
