The increasing demand for electric bed is attributed to the rising number of hospitals in developing countries, increasing patient population, growing geriatric population, and rising adoption of technologically advanced products. The recent outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe has increased the number of patient admissions in hospitals and clinics. The electric beds are among the major requirements for aged people and patients with critical conditions.

The presence of a large population pool over 60 years, which typically has a lower immunity level and is prone to neurological diseases, cardiac problems, cancer, and spinal injuries, is expected to be a high impact-rendering factor for the growth of the market over the forecast period. As per the WHO, globally, the number of people aged 65 or older is anticipated to grow from an estimated 524 million in 2010 to nearly 1.5 billion in 2050. The geriatric population is highly susceptible to diseases, such as arthritis, heart attacks, stroke, osteoporosis, and obesity. Patients suffering from such diseases may require an electric bed as they are more comfortable for them for treatment. Hence, the growing geriatric population is likely to result in the growth of the market.

The rising number of surgeries globally is also a key factor expected to drive the market over the forecast period. For instance, as per the Mölnlycke Health Care AB, 70.00 million surgical procedures are performed every year in Europe. Similarly, according to the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP), in 2015, more than 9,942,000 surgeries were performed in the U.S. within ambulatory care settings. In the case of surgeries, an electric bed is among the essential requirement in hospitals, clinics, and ambulatory surgery centers. Therefore, such instances are expected to fuel market growth.

The growing geriatric population across the globe is also one of the prominent factors influencing the market growth. The geriatric population is more prone to various chronic conditions and chronic wounds, thereby increasing the hospital admission rate. The increasing hospital admission rate is anticipated to increase the demand for electric bed, thereby surging the market growth over the forecast period.

Product Insights

The semi-automatic electric bed segment held the largest share of 57.40% in 2020 and is anticipated to witness considerable growth over the forecast period.

Therefore, such factors are anticipated to drive the demand for semi-automatic electric beds in hospitals and clinics since they are easier to handle by patients, thereby propelling the segment growth.
