A medical wedge pillow is also known as an orthopedic pillow. It is designed to provide healthier and more comfortable sleep for people suffering from a wide range of medical issues. Medical wedge pillows are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they are designed with a slope of the same kind. Medical wedge pillows are generally triangular in shape, and depending the model, their surface may be flat or contoured. They are mostly at least 20 inches long and wide, their angle of inclination is usually 7 inches or higher, and they weigh 2 to 12 pounds.     

Increase in the prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux diseases and back pain drive demand for medical wedge pillows. According to the World Gastroenterology Organization report, in 2015, the prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux diseases ranged from 13.8% to 25% in North America and 2.5% to 6.6% in Asia. High prevelance rate of these diseases is expected to propel the global medical wedge pillow market. 

The global medical wedge pillow market can be segmented based on material, application, distribution channel, and region. Based on material, the global medical wedge pillow market can be classified into polyurethane foam and memory foam. The memory foam segment is projected to account for a significant share of the market in the near future. This is because a vast majority of wedge pillows are made from memory foam for sturdy and long lasting support. The material also helps prevent slippage during the night. In terms of application, the global medical wedge pillow market can be categorized into back pain, respiratory problems, acid reflux, sleep apnea, and others. The acid reflux segment is expected to expand at a rapid pace, due to an increase in the number of users of wedge pillow to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease. In terms of distribution channel, the market can be segmented into retail pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, and online pharmacies. The retail pharmacies segment dominates the market. However, the online pharmacies segment is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period because a large number of patients prefer to buy products through online portals due the availability of different types and sizes of pillow and attractive discount schemes. 

In terms of region, the global medical wedge pillow market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is projected to account for a significant share of the global medical wedge pillow market during the forecast period, owing to a high incidence of gastroesophageal reflux disease. A systematic review of 2014 reveals that about 15% to 30% of the U.S. population suffers from gastroesophageal reflux disease. Increase in the aging population leads to an increase in the prevalence of back pain, due to several factor such as calcium loss from the bones amongly the elderly, etc This is likely to boost the market in Europe. According to the WHO, the number of people aged over 85 years in Europe is likely to reach 19 million by 2020 and over 40 million by 2025. Rise in awareness about the advantages of medical wedge pillows to treat acid reflux and back pain in countries such as India, Thailand, and China is anticipated to propel the medical wedge pillow market in Asia Pacific.
