Geographically, the global sleep aids market was dominated by North America in 2023, with an overall market share of over 50% globally. Europe and Asia-Pacific followed North America. The North American market is predicted to occupy most of the share in the global market owing to the rapid adoption of the latest technologies.

In this region, sleep medications are used mainly by women due to poor health and less quality sleep. In Canada, these sleep aids are also used for children. Hormone supplement melatonin was the most used sleep aid in children in this region.

Europe is anticipated to account for a substantial market share during the forecast period. An increasing number of sleep apnea cases across the European region is boosting the demand for sleep aids in Europe.
