Medical Lifting Sling Market Size Anticipated to Reach $1,235 Million by 2026

(, March 07, 2022 ) The Medical Lifting Sling Market size is anticipated to reach $1,235 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Lifting Slings are placed around and under patients facing difficulties in mobility. The Medical Lifting Slings assist to hoist patients in order to be moved from one place to another such as a bed to a wheelchair and minimize the risk of injury to the patient. They also diminish injury to nurses or caretakers, who previously had to physically lift the patients to help them move. The Medical Lifting Sling Market is driven by the rising population of the elderly and people suffering from various disabilities that hamper mobility and nervous system illnesses such as Muscular dystrophy and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). However, the shortage of adequately trained and skilled sling operators in the usage of patient hoist devices is a significant challenge to the Medical Lifting Sling Industry.

Medical Lifting Sling Market Segment Analysis - By Product Type

The Medical Lifting Sling Market based on the Product Type can be further segmented into Standing Slings, Seating Slings, Universal Slings, Hammock Slings, Transfer Slings, Toilet Slings, Bariatric Slings, and Others.

Medical Lifting Sling Market Segment Analysis - By End-User Type

On the basis of end-user, the Medical Lifting Sling Market is segmented into Home Care, Hospitals, Elderly Care, and Others. The Hospital segment accounts for the largest market share in 2020 and is also predicted to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period 2021-2026 with a CAGR of 5.5%. The reason for the rapid growth is owing to the increase in the prevalence of patients with neuromuscular disorders. This disorder leads to the restriction in mobility of the patient and thereby, in need of continuous support for mobility using products such as the patient hoist. Hospitals have the infrastructure and skilled nurses to provide the assistance. The Home Healthcare segment is also anticipated to grow significantly, especially in developing and developed markets during the forecast period owing to the economic benefits offered by the segment when compared to hospitals. The prevalence of progressive nervous system illnesses such as Muscular dystrophy and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is another aspect that is driving the growth of both the Hospital and Home Healthcare segments.

Medical Lifting Sling Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

The Medical Lifting Sling Market based on Geography can be further segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Rest of World. Europe held the largest share of the overall market in 2020 with 27% of the market. The growth in this segment is owing to the increase in the prevalence of lifestyle illnesses and disorders such as diabetes, Stroke, and Cardiovascular diseases in Europe. The North American market is anticipated to have the largest share of the market after Europe. This is owing to the almost equally developed healthcare system in North America. An increase in Obesity rates and illnesses like Muscular dystrophy and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are the major reasons for the growth in North America. It was estimated that in 2020, 42.4% of the US population was obese and the rate is projected to increase further during the forecast period. Furthermore, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to register rapid growth over the forecast period. The growth is credited to the increase in disposable income and development in the healthcare sector in the region.
