“High risk of injuries to caregivers during the manual handling of patients to drive market growth.”

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. On the other hand, the persistent difficulties in handling bariatric patients are expected to limit market growth to a certain extent.

“Patient lifts segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”

Based on type, the patient transfer devices market is segmented into patient lifts, slings, sliding sheets, air-assisted lateral transfer mattresses, and accessories. The patient lifts segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the forecast period. The growth of this market is largely driven by factors such as the increasing installation of ceiling lifts in hospitals, increasing bariatric population, and the growing adoption of ceiling lifts in bariatric patient handling practices

“The electric beds segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”

Based on type, the medical beds market is segmented into manual, electric, and semi-electric beds. The electric beds segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the forecast period.

The definition of patient handling equipment for this market study is as follows, “Any equipment used to support, transfer, or move a patient or the patients' body part.”

This market study covers patient handling equipment by products for arriving at the market size in period from 2012 to 2019.

This market study majorly covers the patient handling equipment market by product, type of care, accessories, end user, and geography for arriving at the overall patient handling equipment market size in the period from 2014 to 2019.

Along with the market by value, the report also includes the market by volume for the product segment.

However, the report does not cover the service market for the global patient handling equipment market.

The research approach for this study involved both secondary and primary research. A number of secondary sources such as annual reports, SEC filings, press releases, directories, and paid and unpaid databases such as Hoovers, Bloomberg, Businessweek, Factiva, and OneSource were used to identify and collect useful information for this market-oriented and commercial study of the global patient handling equipment market. These were also used to obtain key information about the major players, market classification, and segmentation according to the industry trends to the bottom-most level, geographical markets, and key developments related to the market and technology perspectives. A database of the key industry leaders was also prepared using secondary research. This database was then used for primary research during the course of the study.

Primary sources include industry experts such as CEOs, vice presidents, marketing directors, technology and innovation directors, and related key executives from various key companies and organizations in the patient handling industry. Various industry experts from the demand side such as scientists, consultants, study directors, specialists, and product safety managers were also interviewed to obtain and verify critical qualitative and quantitative information as well as to assess the future prospects of the global diagnostic patient handling market. Primary research was also conducted to understand the segmentation types; industry trends; key players; competitive landscape of the market; and the key market dynamics such as drivers, restraints, opportunities, burning issues, winning imperatives, key player strategies, and recent trends. All the information gathered through secondary research and the critical numbers arrived at were validated through primary research during the course of the study.

Both, bottom-up and top-down approaches were used extensively along with data triangulation methods to perform market estimation and market forecasting for the overall segments and subsegments listed in this report. A detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis was also done for all the numbers arrived at during the course of the study.

Our forecast of the size of the global patient handling equipment market for 2018 is the result of a bottom-up and top-down model constructed by integrating inputs on the key drivers and trends of demand outlined in the main report. In chapters four and five, we have outlined the key drivers and trends that will shape the global patient handling equipment market. The key drivers that are expected to have a high impact on the market include rising aging population, government policies promoting the use of patient handling equipment, rising incidences of lifestyle diseases, technological advancements, injuries occurring due to patient handling which are very costly to recover. The technological advancement and government policies promoting the use of patient handling equipment are the two drivers that have a direct impact on the demand of patient handling equipment; whereas, the rising aging population and lifestyle diseases are the drivers that have an indirect impact on the demand of patient handling equipment.

The patient handling equipment end-users market is segmented into home care, hospitals, elderly care homes, and others (emergency medical services, long-term acute care, trauma centers, and nursing homes). Hospitals majorly include general  hospitals  providing  trauma  care, psychiatric care, geriatric care, and gynecology care and specialty specific hospitals such as for cardiology, oncology, and orthopedics. The patient handling equipment differs in accordance with the type of specialty of hospitals. For instance, maternity beds are used in gynecology hospitals.

Similarly, home care end users majorly use height-adjustable beds and electric beds, smart beds; ceiling lifts for the vertical transfers of patient; lateral transfer aids such as friction-reducing slide sheets and mattresses and air-assisted devices; power-operated vehicles like wheelchairs and scooters; and bathing and wound care equipment and accessories. Elderly care institutions include geriatric centers and hospices. As these patients need assistance in all day-to-day activities, thus patient handling equipment are vital part of this service.

Geographic factors such early adoption of patient handling equipment in Europe than in North America and government support are majorly contributing to the growth of patient handling end-user market.

The home care segment is expected to account for the share of XX% of the global patient handling equipment market in 2014. This segment is poised to reach $XX million by 2019 from $XX million in 2014, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. Rising concern for reduction of healthcare expenditure is exerting pressure on the healthcare industry to minimize the cost of care. Homecare fulfills this need to a greater extent as it is much more affordable as compared to hospital stay. Additionally, elder people are comfortable in their own homes than in hospitals, this factor also impacts positively on patient outcomes.

The key players in this market include Stryker Inc. (U.S.), Hill-Rom Inc. (U.S.), Getinge Group (Sweden), Guldmann Inc.(Denmark), Invacare Corporation (U.S.), Stiegelmeyer Inc. (Germany), Joerns Healthcare (U.S.), Handicare Inc.(Norway), and Prism Medical (U.S.).
