In addition, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has further increased the number of bed head panel installations.

U.S. bed head panel market size, by end-use, 2016 - 2027 (USD Million)

The bed head panels are the key equipment in patient rooms in order to comfort them and for the proper care during their stay in the hospital. It is widely used in an array of treatment units like hospitals, emergency department/trauma centers, and clinics. These are mounted on the wall and are equipped with separate compartments for electrical sockets, medical gas outlets, communication outlets, and nurse call facilities including lighting options. The design for bed head panels can be customized to meet the architectural requirements and according to the healthcare facility’s specific needs. These are available in the vertical and horizontal layouts along with accessories essential inpatient’s rooms.

Moreover, the swiftly rising elderly population base susceptible to chronic conditions such as diabetes, and other lifestyle-associated disorders will surge the demand for bed head panels in various healthcare settings. According to the CDC, it is estimated that people aged 65 years and above are at a higher risk of developing severe health problems such as kidney disease, heart disease, and other medical conditions. This is because aging weakens the human immune system and consequently heightens a patient’s susceptibility to various disorders. About 80.0% of older adults have one chronic disease.

The World Ageing 2019 report suggests that in 2019 there were around 703.0 million population aged 65 years and above globally. This number is estimated to double to 1.5 billion in 2050. Moreover, by 2050, 1 in 6 people in the world will be over the age of 65. Furthermore, older adults are more prone to falls and increased injury severity, which positively supports the surging demand for bed head panels. For instance, according to the CDC, an estimated 36 million older adults are hospitalized every year because of falls, and about 3 million seniors are treated in emergency departments for a fall injury. Thus, the rising geriatric population is anticipated to be one of the high growth rendering drivers for the market.

Furthermore, the rising prevalence of chronic conditions such as neurovascular diseases, cardiovascular disorders, cancer, urological disorders, and other chronic conditions has significantly increased the hospital admission rate. Bed head panels are one of the essential requirements in hospitals and clinics, as it integrates all essential services (electrical sockets, medical gas outlets) in one complete unit. At present, a large percentage of the population is at risk of developing chronic diseases as a result of elevated blood pressure, obesity, and smoking. According to the WHO, chronic disease is responsible for 60% of all deaths worldwide. All cardiovascular diseases together cause around 17.9 million deaths every year globally. Similarly, as per the same source, cancer is the leading cause of mortality globally and almost 1 in 6 deaths can be attributed to this disease. Thus, growing hospitalization with an increase in chronic disorders is expected to upsurge the installations of bead head panels, which in turn is anticipated to drive the market.

Countries such as the U.S. and Canada have observed increased rates of hospital admissions in recent years due to the high prevalence rate of fatal injuries, and chronic medical ailments. For instance, as per the CDC, chronic disease is the leading cause of death and disability. Six in ten adults in the U.S. have a chronic disease, whereas, four in ten adults are living with two or more. Furthermore, according to the Canadian Institute of Health (CIH), over 17,655 people were hospitalized due to sport-associated injuries from 2016 to 2017. In addition, an increase in the geriatric population, who are susceptible to mechanical falls as well as chronic disorders need intensive care at hospitals. Thus, the increasing hospital admissions rate due to the growing baby boomer population in this region is further expected to surge the demand for bed head panels in healthcare settings. This is anticipated to boost the growth of the market in the forecast period.

Moreover, an upsurge in the hospitalization rate due to the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is another key reason boosting the growth of the market. With the severe outbreak of this infectious disease, there is an unprecedented global demand for advanced healthcare services and infrastructure to treat infected patients. As one of the essential parts of healthcare services, bed head panels are experiencing an increase in demand worldwide to handle a surge of COVID-19 patients. The ongoing pandemic has also led to an increase in the number of patients suffering from severe respiratory conditions. Since oxygen levels drop in patients with Covid-19due to which they find difficulty in breathing. Thus, bed head panels which are equipped with multiple medical gas sockets help in delivering oxygen to people with breathing disorders. Therefore, the epidemic at the global level has increased the number of patients requiring intensive care and advanced healthcare services. This, in turn, is expected to boost the growth of the market for bed head panels during the forecast period.

Specialty Insights

The ICU segment dominated the bed head panel market with a revenue share of 39.9% in 2019. High admissions rate in the ICUs owing to the mounting number of accidents, the aging population as well as sudden outbreaks of life-threatening infectious diseases is contributing to segment growth. For instance, according to the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) 2018, more than 5 million patients are admitted every year to ICUs for intensive monitoring in the U.S. In addition, key players are focusing on offering innovative products and extensive services, with an aim of increasing and retaining the trust of the end-users. For instance, in March 2020, to support the COVID-19 pandemic, Hill-Rom Inc., doubles the manufacturing of critical care products which includes ventilators, hospital beds, and vital monitoring devices. The strategic move will expand the customer base and strengthen the industry position of the company. This is expected to support the segment growth during the forecast period.

However, the others segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 3.7% from 2020 to 2027. This includes Operation Theater (OT), children’s ward, and general ward. The increasing patient volume of surgical procedures, rising prevalence of premature babies, and the growing number of bariatric patients are expected to boost the segment growth. According to the CDC, in 2016, around 36.5% of adults were obese in the U.S. and approximately 216,000 bariatric surgeries were performed in the country. Usually, such patient requires long-term hospitalization, which upsurges the demands of bed head panels for proper care during their stay in hospital. This is projected to strengthen the growth of the segment growth in the coming years.

End-use Insights

The hospital segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 43.6% in 2019. The increasing rate of hospitalization due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 pandemics and other infectious diseases, the growing number of well furnished, well equipped, and advanced infrastructure hospitals, as well as the increasing aging population coupled with the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, are expected to propel the segment growth. Furthermore, the rising number of public hospitals to deliver cost-effective treatment has spurred the number of bed head panel installations in hospitals. In addition, growing customer preference towards highly facilitated and equipped hospitals is another important factor accelerating the segment growth.
