Market Segmentation:

By product, the mobile lifts segment is expected to witness above-average growth in the patient lifting equipment market during the forecast period.

Mobile lifts are expected to show the highest growth in the forecast period. Mobile lifts are sling-based and promote a cost-effective and effortless transfer of heavy patients from one place to another without the need for professional uninstallation and reinstallation, as required for ceiling lifts. These advantages promote the adoption of mobile lifts, especially in home care settings and elderly care facilities.

By end-user, the home care settings segment is growing at the highest rate.

The home care settings segment is projected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to the increasing focus on reducing healthcare costs and government initiatives to promote home healthcare. The growth of the global home healthcare market is expected to subsequently drive the demand for patient lifting equipment.

Ceiling lifts to account for the largest share of the global patient lifting equipment market in 2019

Based on product, the patient lifting equipment market is segmented into ceiling lifts, stair & wheelchair lifts, mobile lifts, sit-to-stand lifts, bath & pool lifts, lifting slings, and lifting accessories. Ceiling lifts are expected to account for the largest share of the patient lifting equipment market in 2019, owing to the factors such as the growing adoption of ceiling lifts in bariatric patient handling practices coupled with an increase in the installation of ceiling lifts in hospitals as well as expanding bariatric population pool.

Hospital projected to account for the largest end-user of the market in 2019

Based on end-user, the patient lifting equipment market is segmented into hospitals, home care settings, elderly care facilities, and other end-users (including emergency medical services, long-term acute care centers, trauma centers, and nursing homes). The hospital segment is expected to dominate the market in 2019. The growing patient population, increase in geriatric population, rising number of disabled people, an increasing number of injuries caused during the patient handling process, growing preference of patient lifts over manual handling in hospitals, and improvements in the healthcare infrastructure are expected to drive the demand and adoption of patient lifting equipment in hospitals.
