Demand for Medical Lifting Slings to Remain Strong in Hospitals through 2024
On the basis of end users, the hospital segment will continue to lead the market in terms of revenue until 2024.

Stringent Regulations to Encourage Development of Advanced Medical Lifting Slings
Favorable government policies have a pivotal role to play in the development of the global healthcare industry, the benefits of which are extended to its affiliated markets, including the global medical lifting slings market. “Stringent regulations are prompting the leading players to pour hefty funds into the development and designing of advanced medical lifting slings, which is working in favor of the market,” says a TMR analyst. The emerging trend of rental provisions is also providing a significant push to the market. This new trend is fuelled by the soaring demand for home health care set-up and the subsequent need of slings for shorter durations. Moreover, the expanding base of geriatric population, particularly in developed regions, is stoking the growth of the market.
Despite an array of drivers, the dearth of personnel with proper technical expertise is hampering the growth of the global medical lifting slings market. This is further exacerbated by the lack of adequate training provisions. Moreover, the high risk associated with these slings is limiting their widespread adoption. For instance, if lifts are improperly attached with slings, it can prove to be perilous for both patients and care providers.
