Hospital Stretchers Market Segmentation

Grand View Research has segmented the global hospital stretchers market on the basis of product type, technology type, application, and region:

Based on the Product Type Insights, the market is segmented into Fixed Height, Bariatric, Adjustable Height, Radiographic.

  • In 2020, the bariatric segment accounted for the highest revenue share of 37.6%. Bariatric stretchers include larger frames, outsized wheels, winch attachments, and pull & push handles for safe transporting. Stretchers of this sort are typically used to carry obese patients.
  • Obesity is a major health concern that leads to numerous related chronic diseases or complications, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. Thus, the increasing prevalence of obesity leading to hospitalization is increasing the demand for bariatric stretchers.
  • Bariatric stretchers can withstand weight up to 700 pounds. Moreover, the use of powered hi/low stretchers might be advantageous to enable patient transfer and positioning.
  • The market for adjustable stretchers is also expected to grow significantly in the coming years owing to the increasing demand for innovative and automated hospital stretchers by multi-specialty and super-specialty hospitals. Adjustable stretchers are motorized and technologically advanced.

Based on the Application Insights, the market is segmented into Daycare/Inpatient, Surgery, Emergency/Trauma, Ambulatory/Transport.

  • The emergency/trauma segment held the largest revenue share of 32.9% of the global market in 2020. The segment growth is credited to the rising number of road traffic crashes or emergency trauma cases.

Work-related injuries are prevalent in emergency services. As the number of patients increases, the demand for hospital stretchers for emergency cases is expected to grow at a rapid pace.

Ambulatory stretchers are gaining popularity across the globe and are majorly used at emergency service centers. Cost-effective services, easy-to-use ambulance stretchers, a high level of comfort, safety, and patient-centered care are likely to boost the segment growth.
