The overall patient handling equipment market will be valued at $8.55 billion in 2014

The global patient handling equipment market exhibits a lucrative growth potential for the next five years. The growth of this market is propelled by the rise in geriatric population and the increase in lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD) leading to increased disabilities. The market is further driven by factors such as government policies promoting the use of patient handling equipment, technological advancement, injuries incurred during patient handling which are very costly to recover. Advancement in technology and development of new products has contributed largely to patient handling equipment market to growth

The medical beds segment will have the largest share of the total patient handling equipment market in 2014 and will continue to grow with a healthy CAGR in the forecast period. The high growth of this segment is attributed to the growing demand for the equipment for the expanding geriatric population, mounting prevalence of lifestyle diseases and technological advancements. Evolution in technology have made the equipment more user's friendly and portable. The non-mechanical equipment on the other hand will be the fastest growing segment in the coming years. It will account for very less share in the market in 2014, but gradually their acceptance as well as popularity will lead to higher market share.

The home care segment is expected to grow at the highest growth rate in the forecast period. The delivery of health care services in home is more cost efficient than the hospital and in other care institutions on long term basis. Furthermore, favourable reimbursement policies and government support will contribute to the market growth.
