Patient Handling Equipment Market

Patient Handling Equipment Market (Product - Lifting Slings, Wheelchairs, Medical Beds, Ambulatory Aids, Shower, Bath, and Toileting Equipment, and Transfer and Positioning Aids and Patient Lifts; End User - Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, Home Healthcare, and Trauma, Rehabilitation, and Paramedical Centers) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2017 - 2024

Patients who demand physical help, as well as those who are on medicine or who are unwell, utilize patient handling equipment. Home care settings, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and care facilities for the elderly amongst other places, employ patient handling equipment. Whilst dealing with patients, the patient handling equipment assures the safety of physicians and caregivers. Furthermore, it minimizes the risk of patient injury, hence encouraging the use of patient handling equipment. This factor is estimated to boost growth of the global patient handling equipment market.

Patient handling equipment is becoming more prevalent as the global handicapped population grows. As per the World Health Organization, nearly 15% of the world's population lives with some sort of impairment in 2019, with 2% to 4% experiencing functional issues. Due to the fast expansion of chronic illnesses, the number of handicapped persons is increasing. To carry out their everyday duties, disabled persons require patient handling equipment. Increasing cases of disability is likely to drive the global patient handling equipment market to grow significantly in the years to come.

Furthermore, as compared to other age groups, those aged 65 years and older are more prone to accidents and falls. For increased safety, this age group typically utilizes wheelchairs as well as scooters, resulting in segmental expansion. The need for wheelchairs and scooters will also increase as the aging population grows. In the near future, an expanding population suffering from chronic illnesses such as myocardial infarction and stroke is likely to drive the segmental growth. Furthermore, segmental expansion is fueled by an increase in the number of patient admissions as a result of the increased prevalence of chronic disease. Adoption of novel technology for acute and critical care patient management will further contribute to market expansion.

In addition to that, the COVID-19 epidemic has resulted in a significant rise in the need for medical beds all over the world. As the number of corona cases rises throughout the world, governments in both developed and developing nations are being forced to expand their patient-handling capabilities. The public health systems are contributing cash to purchase the necessary hospital infrastructure, including medical beds, which are a critical prerequisite. Other important aspects that will favorably affect market growth include an increase in fundraising for related with patient handling equipment. However, a lack of caregiver training for accessing patient handling devices and issues with manual handling of bariatric patients are two obstacles that might stymie market expansion.

Global Patient Handling Equipment Market: Snapshot

The demand in the global patient handling equipment market is projected to increment at a robust CAGR of 10.4% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2024, gaining traction from a number of factors such as rising geriatric population, high risk of injuries to caregivers as well as the patients during manual handling, increasing incidence of disabilities, and implementation of regulations pertaining to the safety at the healthcare facilities. On the other hand, the lack of skilled professionals to handle these equipment is hindering the market from attaining its true potential. Nevertheless, the vendors operating in the global patient handling equipment market are expected to gain new opportunities from private institutional nursing and the entry of several major players in domestic markets.

As per the estimations of the report, the global patient handling equipment market will be worth US$22.4 bn by the end of 2024, significantly up from its evaluated valuation of US$11.2 bn in 2017. The healthcare industry is currently flourishing in a number of developed and emerging economies, and if the vendors operating in this market can formulate a way to train professionals to operate these equipment, the demand will be ideally met.
