These sleeping pods offer facilities such as Wi-Fi, television, and minimum requisite space for a human body resting. Increasing government investment for offering passenger-friendly facilities at airports is one of the major factors for growth of the global airport sleeping pods market. For example: in 2016, the Indian government announced plans to invest US$ 120 Bn for infrastructure development of airports. Most governments focus on allotting space for sleeping pods in airports to private parties who handle the installation and maintenance of pods. Also, rising numbers of air passengers plays a key role for growth of the global airport sleeping pods market. The Federal Aviation Administration Aerospace forecast, in 2017, around 229 million passengers are estimated to travel by flight in the U.S., up from 218 million passengers in 2016.

Rising capsules hotels at airports is one of the major trends for growth of the global airport sleeping pods market. Capsules hotels are small box type hotels, which provide facilities such as Wi-Fi connectivity, electric components, television, and other facilities. Increasing demand for hotels or waiting rooms at airports have accelerated demand for capsules hotels.

Moreover, some of the major challenges, which are adversely affecting growth of the airport sleeping pods market are high product costs, high maintenance costs, and adherence to stringent regulations regarding electrical components.
