Patient Handling Equipment Market

Patient Handling Equipment Market by Type (Wheelchairs, Mobility Scooters, Medical Beds (Electric Beds), Patient Transfer Device (Lift (Ceiling Lifts), Slings, Slide Sheets), Stretchers), End User (Hospitals, Home Care settings) - Global Forecast to 2024

Report Code: MD 2708 Jan, 2020, by marketsandmarkets.com

[160 Pages Report]The patient handling equipment market is projected to reach USD 12.6 billion by 2024 from USD 8.9 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. The growth of this market is largely driven by factors such as the rising geriatric population, high risk of injuries to caregivers during the manual handling of patients, and the implementation of regulations ensuring the safety of healthcare personnel during manual lifting processes. However, the persistent difficulties in handling bariatric patients are expected to limit market growth to a certain extent.

Patient Handling Equipment Market-By Region

The patient transfer devices segment is expected to account for the largest share of the patient handling equipment market in 2019

Based on type, the market is segmented into mobility devices, medical beds, bathroom & toilet assist equipment, patient transfer devices, and stretchers & transport chairs. In 2019, the patient transfer devices segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. The large share of this segment can primarily be attributed to factors such as the increasing installation of ceiling lifts in hospitals and the growing adoption of patient lifts for bariatric patient handling.

Based on end user, the hospitals segment dominates the patient handling equipment market in 2019

Based on end user, the patient handling equipment market is segmented into hospitals, home care settings, and other end users (elderly care facilities, emergency medical services, long-term acute care centers, trauma centers, and nursing homes). The hospitals segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. The large share of this segment is attributed to the growing patient population, increasing geriatric population, rising number of disabled people, increasing number of injuries caused during the patient handling process, and the increasing preference for patient handling equipment over manual handling in hospitals.

Patient Handling Equipment Market-By Region

The APAC market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The APAC market is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Factors such as the increasing incidence of MSD-caused injuries to caregivers, growth in the elderly population, healthcare infrastructure improvements, and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases are the major factors driving market growth in the Asia Pacific. Several countries in the APAC have implemented policies for safe handling to prevent caregiver injuries while transferring and lifting patients. In addition, the overall expansion of economies in India, China, and Southeast Asia has further compelled key industry players to invest in this region owing to the lucrative opportunities presented by this market.
