Global Patient Handling Equipment Market- Overview

Patient handling equipment includes devices equipped with mechanical slings or sit-to-stand lifts that assist in shifting patients from or to bed and other resting positions. Wheelchair, stretchers, medical beds, medical scooters, and operating table pads are among the equipment used for patient handling. Equipment of this type operates via hydraulic power or electricity.A wide variety of patient handling equipment is used in hospitals, nursing homes, in home care, and in other places where people receive treatment.Patient handling equipment is highly useful in the prevention of injury of both patient and caretaker while manual handling. Additionally, patients can relax and be flexible with this medical equipment.

Global Patient Handling Equipment Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Prevalence of Musculoskeletal Disorders

The prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders like epicondylitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, muscle/tendon strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc. is rising at a very rapid rate around the world. According to the WHO, around 1.71 billion people worldwide are suffering from musculoskeletal disorders. Among these, a large percentage is covered by the geriatric population under hospital or home-care treatment. As a result, the need for patient handling equipment for the management of such patients effortlessly is propelling the growth of the global patient handling equipment market.

Regulatory Policies Surrounding the Use of Patient Handling Equipment

There are no specific laws that require the use of patient handling equipment, but there are regulations and policies which require that healthcare facilities such as hospitals and diagnostic & treatment centers use lifting and transfer aids for patients who need physical assistance.For instance, the Safe Patient Handling Act, originally initiated in New York, requires hospitals, nursing homes, and other public health clinics to formulate a policy for the use of engineering controls, lifting, and transfer aids. Such policies fuel the demand for patient handling equipment, thereby powering the growth of the global patient handling equipment market.

Restraints

High Costs of Patient Handling Equipment

The high cost of patient handling equipment restrains its adoption and affects the market negatively by limiting its demand. It is very expensive to acquire such equipment; thus, it is only available to the financially strong individuals and countries with stable economies, which reduces their growth potential.For instance, a ceiling lift typically costs between USD 5,000 and USD 12,000, as does the installation of a motorized ceiling lift system that costs approximately 8,000 dollars.This acts as a huge barrier to the growth of the global patient handling equipment market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Patient Handling Equipment Market

Due to the high rate of hospitalization of COVID-19 patients, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a positive impact on the global patient handling equipment market.Most of the patients belonging to the pool affected by the virus were geriatrics who needed help with daily activities.Thus, during the COVID-19 period, the adoption of patient handling equipment for handling patients proliferated significantly. Nevertheless, during the initial phase of COVID-19, there was a little slump in the market due to obstructions in manufacturing operations. However, the market is expected to grow at a high rate in the post-COVID-19 period.

Global Patient Handling Equipment Market - By Type

Based on types, the global patient handling equipment market is segmented into patient transfer devices, medical beds, mobility devices, bathroom & toilet assist equipment, and stretchers & transport chairs. Among these segments, the patient transfer devices segment holds the largest market share. This segment is further classified into patient lifts, slings, air-assisted lateral transfer mattresses, sliding sheets, and accessories. The increasing adoption of ceiling lifts, sit-to-stand lifts, mobile lifts in the hospitals as well as home care settings is driving the growth of the patient transfer devices segment.

Global Patient Handling Equipment Market - By End-User

Based on end-users, the global patient handling equipment market is segmented into hospitals, home care settings, and other end-users. The hospital segment accounts for the largest market share among all the segments because of its wide application in the management of critical as well as geriatric patients. Moreover, hospitals across the globe are also investing in advanced healthcare equipment, which is causing the patient handling equipment market to grow substantially.The home care settings segment, on the other hand, is gaining significant traction and is expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Global Patient Handling Equipment Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global patient handling equipment market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. Among these regions, North America dominates the market because of the increasing prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders like bone fractures, arthritis, osteoarthritis, especially among the geriatric population in the region. It has been estimated that every third or fourth person aged 65 or over suffers from musculoskeletal disorders.Furthermore, stringent set of government regulations further recommends the use of equipment like patients handling equipment to maintain the safety of patients and healthcare workers in North America, which is driving the growth of the patient handling equipment market in the region.
