Patient Positioning Systems Market: Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018-2026

Overview:

Patient positioning systems (PPS) play a significant role in healthcare settings as a prerequisite for assistance in surgical procedures and recovery. Optimal patient positioning ensures finest access to the surgical sites and prevents any possibility of nerve damage or pressure ulcers; thus, resulting in faster rehabilitation, recovery and better outcomes. Patient positioners prove significant in robotic surgery where patient stability is of upmost importance. Rising number of robotic surgical procedures have spurred the demand for patient positioning systems. According to Minimally Invasive Surgery Symposium (MISS), more than 140,000 robotic assisted surgeries were performed in 2015 in U.S. alone. The number is projected to increase by 25% in the next 5 years with approximately 1 in 3 gynecology, urology, orthopedic and general surgeries expected to be performed by robotic systems. Similar trend is anticipated to be followed in countries such as China, India and other emerging economies by 2020. Moreover, PPS plays a key role in radiation therapy for cancer treatment, wherein the stability of the patient needs to be precisely controlled to accurately target the tumor for ensuring maximum therapeutic outcome, without harming healthy tissues. PPS are cost-effective, customizable and compatible with medical robots and decrease time required for positioning patients and undergo treatments.

In terms of product type, the market is segmented into patient positioning tables and accessories. Patient positioning tables include surgical tables, examination tables and radiolucent tables. Surgical tables held the largest share due to rising number of surgical procedures globally. According to the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery, an estimated 312 million surgeries were performed worldwide in 2015, which is set to further increase in the coming years. Technological advancements and introduction of innovative surgical tables would drive the patient positioning systems market during the forecast period. In terms of application, surgeries segment dominated the market, while cancer therapy is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate due to growing cases of cancer globally. Hospitals segment held the largest share in terms of end-users in the global patient positioning systems market. Large number of surgeries performed in hospitals coupled with growing investments in indoor hospital infrastructure is driving the market.

North America, held the lion’s share in the global patient positioning systems market. Rising prevalence of chronic diseases and highest number of robotic surgeries performed in the U.S. are expected to further boost the market. Asia Pacific emerged as the most lucrative market due to increasing healthcare investments emphasizing on deploying state of the art surgical equipment. The major players operating in the market are Medtronic plc, Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc., Stryker Corporation, STERIS plc, Medline Industries, Smith & Nephew, and others. Companies are involved in development and marketing innovative products to improve operating room efficiency, where patient stability and positioning is vital. Moreover, the industry giants indulge in growth strategies such as acquisition, mergers and collaborations to maintain their dominance in the market. For instance, Hill-Rom Holdings acquired Aspen Surgical Products and Trumpf Medical to strengthen its foothold in surgical and operating room solutions industry.
