LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio projects the global pressure relief devices market is expected to post a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period. Increasing cases of pressure ulcers is a key driver for the growth of this market.
Pressure ulcers, alternatively known as bed sores, are one of the most frequent problems associated with people undergoing long-term treatment or post-surgical treatment owing to their lack of mobility and prolonged lying on the bed. The unrelieved pressure and the friction between bony prominences such as the sacrum, heels, hips, shoulders, elbows, and the surfaces on which a patient is resting can lead to pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers mostly occur in patients with increased age, impaired nutrition, vascular diseases, and other medical conditions. The rising cases of pressure ulcers increase the demand for devices such as pressure relief mattresses and mattress overlays.

In this report, Technavio highlights the global increase in bariatric population as one of the key emerging trends in the global pressure relief devices market:
Global increase in bariatric population
In recent times, there is an increase in the number of individuals who are categorized as obese. In addition to predisposing these people to various diseases such as cancer, osteoarthritis, gout, CVDs, high blood pressure, diabetes, and breathing problems among others, obesity can also cause pressure ulcers. Obesity contributes to immobility and subsequent pressure on the skin surface, thereby driving the demand for pressure relief devices. The US, for instance, has a high incidence of obesity with more than 32% of high school graduates being obese in 2016.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for orthopedics and medical devices research, “Pressure ulcers are costly complications of prolonged bed rest. Patients admitted to the ICU are at a high risk of acquiring these ulcers. Specialty beds and pressure relief mattresses can aid in reducing pressure ulcers. The market for pressure relief devices is expected to grow owing to the increasing number of people suffering from lifestyle diseases.”
