A new report by XploreMR studies the growth drivers, trends, restraints, and highlights of the global patient positioning market. Presenting exclusive insights into the market from 2017 to 2022, the report projects that the market will witness notable growth during the forecast period. Patient positioning stands for the equipment that is used to maintain the posture of patients during and after medical procedures to maintain physiologic safety, anesthesia management, optimal exposure to surgical sites, and to reduce the pressure on specific regions of the body, among others. The growth of the market is mainly attributed to surging demand for patent positioning systems among healthcare institutions, availability of advanced systems, and increasing geriatic population worldwide. Moreover, the technological advancements in the patient positioning equipment, coupled with a rise in the hospitalization of mentally challenged patients will complement the market growth through the forecast period.
Increasing Adoption in Orthopedics and Long-term Care Centers Fosters Market Growth
Patient positioning systems have been gaining prominence among numerous applications across the healthcare landscape, especially in orthopedics and long-term care centers, owing to their ability to aid patients in day-to-day activities. These systems find usage among the elderly population, patients recovering from surgery or injury, and those who have been disabled for life. Products such as tables, surgical tables, and radiolucent imaging tables, are gaining remarkable traction in hospitals, which is anticipated to remain the leading end-use segment on the back of the high in-patient rates. Moreover, the growing adoption of patient positioning systems during surgeries in order to keep the patient in a specific position is also bestowing lucrative revenue opportunities to the manufacturers. In addition, the availability of technologically advanced systems, such as electronically operated beds, is driving the patient positioning market on a positive growth trajectory. On the other hand, factors such as the availability of alternate and cheaper technologies, product recalls, and government regulations to reduce overall healthcare expenditure, are posing a challenge to the steady growth of the market.
North America Remains at Forefront of Global Market
North America will continue to reign supremacy over the regional landscape of the patient positioning market, owing to the adoption of advanced healthcare facilities, and growth in the usage of patient positioning systems in orthopedic and physiotherapy departments. Furthermore, the high presence of an aging population is also contributing to the revenue flow. Similarly, Europe and the Asia Pacific will also account for respectable shares in the global market value owing to rising government spending to improve healthcare architecture.
