China therapeutic bed market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The global need for therapeutic beds has risen significantly because of the COVID-19 outbreak and increased hospital admissions. Beginning in March 2020, the massive surge of the COVID-19 significantly impacted hospitals. In addition, the change from standard beds to specialty COVID-19 beds with additional hygiene measures, as well as pressure on the number of beds, which originated primarily from the need to anticipate sufficient capacity in the ICU, have all contributed to market growth. As a result, due to the pandemic in 2020, sales of therapeutic beds significantly increased. According to FDA in October 2020, due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, there has been a high demand for mattresses, hospital beds, and stretchers to enhance healthcare capacity in healthcare systems & local hospitals via temporary expansion sites. To address the same, manufacturers from several industries, who are not traditionally associated with medical devices manufacturing, are looking for resources to market and produce these devices for the healthcare community, which, in turn, the market is expected to grow at a significant pace over the forecast period.

The prevalence of chronic diseases, such as urological disorders, cancer, cardiovascular disorders, neurovascular diseases, and other chronic problems, is increasing, resulting in a considerable increase in hospital admission rates, which is expected to boost the market growth. Moreover, as a result of high blood pressure, obesity, and smoking, a large percentage of the population is currently in danger of developing chronic diseases. According to the WHO, chronic diseases are responsible for 60% of all fatalities worldwide, and every year, 17.9 million people die as a result of cardiovascular disorders. According to the same source, cancer is the leading cause of death globally, accounting for nearly one in every six deaths. As a result, increasing hospitalization, coupled with an increase in chronic illnesses, is likely to boost therapeutic bed installations, resulting in market growth.

Furthermore, the increasing population of obese people is also anticipated to boost the therapeutic beds market growth. Bariatric beds are specifically designed to handle obese patients. Incidence of obesity has increased significantly in the past few years, especially among the aged groups, which augments the difficulty of handling and moving obese patients. For instance, as per WHO, in 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight, out of which, around 650 million people were obese. These factors are expected to increase the demand for bariatric procedures. Similarly, as per the report published by the CDC in 2020, the rates of obesity rose considerably among adults from 33.7% to 39.6% between the years 2015 & 2016 and 2019 & 2020. During this time the rates of severe obesity also increased from 5.7% to 7.7%.As prevalence of obesity is increasing, the number of bariatric surgeries is also likely to increase, which is expected to directly drive the market.

This can be attributed to their multifunctional applications such as manage labor (maternity), provide treatment to the injury, reduce the severity of mental illness, protect against exacerbation or complications, and perform diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. Moreover, the global acute care therapeutic beds segment is predicted to be fueled by an increase in the number of accidents, which would lead to more hospital admissions for emergency and elective care.

End-use Insights

Based on end use, the market is segmented into hospitals & clinics, reproductive care centers and others. The hospitals & clinics segment has dominated the overall market of around 47.1% in 2022. The rising rate of hospitalization due to recent outbreaks of COVID-19 pandemics, the growing number of well-furnished, well-equipped, and advanced infrastructure hospitals, as well as an ageing population and rising prevalence of chronic diseases, are expected to propel the segment forward.Hospitals offer superior care to patients and provide reimbursements for certain procedures, which are further contributing to segment growth.Hospital also witnesses a significantly high inflow of patients for a number of surgeries, such as bariatric surgery, as compared to other healthcare settings, owing to ease of handling any emergencies that may arise during surgical procedures and availability of a broad range of treatment options.
