The global pressure mapping systems in healthcare market size was valued at USD 550.1 million in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9% from 2023 to 2030. The use of pressure mapping systems to prevent injuries and manage foot deformities is expected to boost the market growth. These systems are available in the form of simple mats that are equipped with sensors, which provide information about the pressure points between a patient’s skin and the surface. The information obtained from these sensors helps the clinicians to avoid any possible injuries such as pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers are developed due to prolonged pressure on certain body parts, which causes injury to the underlying tissues. The condition is common in patients who are confined to a bed or wheelchair. Pressure ulcers can be prevented using these systems that help the clinicians to provide effective and efficient patient repositioning, which, in turn, helps to avoid these conditions.
The growing number of lower limb amputations, an increasing number of hospital admissions, and the rising prevalence of conditions such as paralysis and multiple sclerosis, which cause immobility in a person, are expected to be key drivers for the market during the forecast period. Paralysis is a common condition globally that affects the mobility of a person, thereby increasing the demand for systems in order to avoid pressure ulcers. Moreover, the sensors are being used to monitor pressure distribution in the prosthetic socket. The sensors help to measure pressure in the prosthetic socket with sufficient accuracy, which helps to distinguish pressure points in the socket. For instance, according to an article by NCBI dated August 2022, approximately 1,50,000 patients undergo amputations for lower extremities in the U.S. each year.
Moreover, the sensors help clinicians to detect foot abnormalities and prevent injuries in patients and athletes. The sensors are incorporated in the soles of the shoes, which help clinicians to get data about foot abnormalities. This can help the athletes to reduce pain and balance visual pressures on the feet preventing injuries in case of physical activities such as squats. Moreover, the systems are used to identify issues in the gait cycle, for instance, the Strideway System by Tekscan. It is a modular pressure measurement platform that is designed for human gait analysis. The platform provides information about force and plantar pressure.
The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the market due to the cancelation of non-essential surgeries. Moreover, supply chain disruptions impacted the market to a great extent. Reduction in hospital admissions during the pandemic also reduced the need for these systems used in hospital beds or mattresses.
By application, the hospital beds/mattresses segment held the largest share of over 35.0% in 2022. Factors such as the large-scale adoption of these systems in hospital beds to monitor the pressure points among bed-ridden patients in order to prevent injuries, such as pressure ulcers, are driving the market. According to data published by HMP Global Networks, the use of continuous bedside pressure mapping systems improved pressure detection and relief in 88% of the respondents, while 84% of the respondents reported effective and efficient pressure repositioning.
The foot insoles segment is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. The rising prevalence of foot-related injuries among athletes is expected to contribute to segment growth. Moreover, the use of these systems by clinicians to analyze the gait cycle in order to avoid any possible injuries is expected to further boost segment growth. The availability of technologically advanced products is also driving the market. For instance, the Intelligent Insoles by XSENSOR measures plantar pressure and also accurately analyses gait.
North America dominated the market in 2022 with a share of over 40.0%. Higher prevalence of spinal cord injuries and increasing hospital admissions for severe injuries are expected to contribute to the demand for the systems. For instance, according to data published by Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center in 2021, more than 18,000 new cases of spinal cord injuries are reported every year in the U.S. Spinal cord injuries usually impair the movement of the patients, thereby contributing to the demand for the systems. Moreover, presence of key players in the region such as Blue Chip Medical Products, Tekscan, and XSENSOR Technology Corporation is expected to contribute to the growth of the market in the region.
Asia Pacific is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period owing to factors such as the growing geriatric population in countries such as Japan and China. The growing prevalence of chronic conditions such as arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease in the region is also expected to contribute to the demand for the systems in the region. For instance, according to an article by Translational Neurodegeneration, China is expected to have half the number of patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease by 2030, contributing to about 4.94 million patients. In addition, the presence of key players in the region is driving the market.
High competition in the market owing to innovative product offerings by key players and the entry of new players has led to high market growth. For instance, in March 2021, XSENSOR Technology Corporation announced that its ForeSite Intelligent Surface mattress, an AI-powered sensor-based skin monitoring solution, was ready for clinical trials and evaluation. The mattress helps to continuously monitor pressure and skin risk with mattresses while allowing the clinicians to improve patient safety and provide individualized care to the patients.
