Market Overview

The medical lifting slings market may show rapid growth due to the growth in the geriatric population, increasing lifestyle diseases, increasing the number of people suffering from neuromuscular disorders, and the measures taken to prevent overexertion in personnel handling the patients.

The global population has been aging rapidly, owing to reducing birth rates and increasing life expectancy. The number of older people is estimated to increase by nearly 60% in the next 15 years. By 2030, the total number of people above the age of 65 is expected to be more than a billion, i.e., the geriatric population may represent 12% of the global population. By 2050, this number is likely to cross 1.6 billion or 16.7% of the total population.

Therefore, the demographic trend toward an aging population and the rising incidences of chronic diseases have further lead to a longer stay in hospitals, which may increase the demand for medical lifting slings, over the forecast period.

Furthermore, there is a high risk of cross-infection in reusable slings, which has been further impeding the growth of the market studied over the forecast period.

Scope of the Report

The medical lifting sling is an assistive device that allows patients in hospitals and nursing homes, and people receiving home healthcare to be transferred between a bed and a chair or other similar resting places. These are the mobile devices that help the safe lifting of patients who are weak, obese, or are disabled.

Key Market Trends

Hospitals Segment is Expected to be the Largest Growing Segment in the Medical Lifting Sling Market

The hospital segment accounts for the largest share in the global medical lifting slings market, and it is expected to grow steadily during the forecast period. The people suffering from neuromuscular diseases generally have limited movement capacity and need continuous support for any kind of movement. They are the primary consumers of lifting slings in homes and hospitals. Therefore, the increase in the number of neuromuscular patients, who may need lifting slings for proper movement, is expected to boost the market studied.
