Bamboo Furniture Solves Issue of Scarcity of Beds during COVID-19 Pandemic

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has exposed the vulnerability of hospitals worldwide. This has caused a scarcity in resources such as hospital furniture and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). Hence, research teams and product designers in the hospital furniture market are putting their creative minds in action to innovate in beds and wheelchair. For instance, Ravi Mokashi Punekar- a professor and product designer at IIT-Guwahati’s Department of Design, has constructed beds, examination tables for patients, and IV (Intravenous) fluid stands from bamboo, owing to its sustainability. Thus, manufacturers in the hospital furniture market should take cues from such innovators to boost their credibility during the ongoing COVID-19 era.

Hospitals in India are suffering from a major shortage for beds and other equipment. In such cases, sustainable innovations are receiving their fair share of limelight, where beds and computer tables made from bamboo can be used in isolation wards and quarantine centers to house large number of patients.

Coronavirus Pandemic Fuels Demand for Easy-to-Manage Quarantine Beds

As the COVID-19 cases continue to escalate in India, manufacturers are capitalizing on the unprecedented demand for beds and partitions. For instance, Nilkamal-an India-based furniture brand has introduced exclusive products such as the COVID Quarantine Bed, VirusGUARD partition, and the 7 position isolation bed to meet urgent requirements of hospitals. Due to the overwhelming number of COVID-19 cases, hospitals are cash-strapped. Hence, manufacturers are introducing beds that are economical and only take minutes to assemble.

Manufacturers are scurrying to increase their production capacities to meet the emerging need gap caused by the coronavirus pandemic. This has helped manufacturers to secure loyal business relations with hospitals and will help manufacturers to have long-term contractual deals with hospitals in the future. Companies have been working round-the-clock to devise unique hospital furniture solutions that are an outcome of rigorous R&D. They are developing innovative COVID quarantine beds that are easy to store, use, and transport.

Ergonomically-sound Furniture Adapt to Ever-evolving Patient Requirements

The hospital furniture market was valued at US$ 9.5 Bn in 2019 and is projected to reach a value of US$ 16.1 Bn by the end of 2030. As such, the Indian healthcare sector is advancing at a brisk pace, since stakeholders are increasing their expenditure capacities and bettering the healthcare settings in tier 1 & tier 2 cities. However, most hospital furniture and equipment are often incompatible to the changing needs of patients and emerging as a challenge for furniture manufacturers. Hence, manufacturers in the hospital furniture market are increasing their focus in ergonomically-sound furniture to suit the needs of patients. For instance, in August 2019, the Godrej Interio Healthcare Experience Center was launched in India where the two-in-one manual and motorized bed was highly publicized at the event.

State-of-the-art healthcare centers are being launched in India to improve patient outcomes.

High Ratio of Patients to Available Facilities Creates Revenue Opportunities in India

Providing utmost patient comfort and safety are key takeaways that manufacturers in the hospital furniture market have focused their innovations on. Companies, such as Inspace Healthcare Furniture-a hospital furniture manufacturer in Chennai, India, are increasing their production capabilities to deliver hassle-free availability of furniture and equipment even at a short notice. Quality assurance in furniture is another key aspect, which is helping manufacturers gain regional and global recognition.

Companies in the hospital furniture market are tapping into value-grab opportunities in developing economies such as India, since the ratio of patients to the facilities available is significantly low. Hence, manufacturers are capitalizing on this opportunity and are innovating in cutting-edge furniture that enhances the healing environment in hospitals. They are increasing awareness about preventive maintenance practices to extend the lifespan of hospital furniture.

Complete Interior Concepts Crucial in Designing High-end Care Beds for Patients

Emerging players in the hospital furniture market are increasing their focus in both sleeping and sitting furniture. For instance, high-end healthcare furniture provider Moments Furniture is acquiring proficiency in functional designs for products to manifest comfort for hospital patients. Such innovations are bolstering growth for the hospital furniture market, which is slated to register a high CAGR during the assessment period. As such, hospital furniture manufacturers are broadening their portfolio in complete interior concepts made, especially for the care sector whilst keeping the ergonomics and comfort in mind.

Manufacturers are collaborating with experts in the field of hospital furniture in order to gain a competitive edge over other market players. They are setting their collaboration wheels in motion to partner with specialists in high-end care beds integrated with the cutting-edge technology.

High Obese Population in U.S. Fuels Innovations in Hospital Furniture

The trend of contract production is becoming increasingly commonplace in the hospital furniture market. The concept of personalized furniture is growing popular in the market landscape, with larger emphasis on the quality and refined finish of products. Manufacturers are adopting well thought-out concepts that revolve around the look, comfort, and hospitality of end users. High-performing hospital furniture is helping manufacturers gain global recognition. Washington-based manufacturer, Everett Office Furniture, is increasing its R&D efforts to develop high-performing hospital furniture since a significant percentage of the U.S. population is obese.

Traditional hospital furniture has disadvantages of causing skin ulcers to patients who are overweight, owing to extra furniture pressure on the already fragile skin. Hence, companies are increasing efforts to improve the functionality and aesthetics of healthcare furniture for obese. This bodes well with hospitals who are investing in furniture that accommodates several hundred pounds of patient weight.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Leading furniture groups in India are earmarking funds for community support and relief initiatives amidst the coronavirus pandemic to focus on the betterment of public health and essential supplies in hospitals. In order to enhance the interiors of hospitals, end users are investing in visually appealing hospital furniture, which is replacing monotone furniture. As such, conventional hospital furniture for the obese is prone to risks of breaking underneath due to excessive weight of patients. Hence, companies should develop high-performing bariatric healthcare furniture, which is capable of withstanding heavy weight. Manufacturers should focus on sustainable designs for furniture to reduce VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emission from non-sustainable materials.
