The importance of sleep quality in people's lives can't be overstated, especially in recent years, as home time becomes longer and consumer behavior changes from viewing sleep as a luxury to a necessity, coupled with the effects of the global economic downturn and local unrest, leaving more and more people in a state of chronic high pressure, leading to the rapid spread of anxiety and insomnia in groups of patients.

Just the other day, RAND Europe, a nonprofit global policy think tank and research institute, found in a study that about 8 percent of adults in most countries in Europe and the United States suffer from chronic insomnia. In addition, people with insomnia would trade about 14 percent of their annual salary (about $7,700 in the U.S.) for a good night's sleep.

In addition, consumers' awareness of buying lifestyle products with significant sleep-aiding effects has also greatly helped the market shift to more innovative products, such as technology products that can improve people's sleep quality, such as humidifiers, night lights, white noise sleep aids, etc., are now increasingly respected by consumers.

Today, sleep problems have become very common, and the types of sleep aid products and industry boundaries are expanding.
