Pressure Relief Devices Market By Device Type (Low-Tech Devices, High-Tech Devices), By Application (Pressure Ulcers, Burns, Surgical Wounds) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2017 – 2025

A pressure ulcer is a localized injury on the skin or underlying tissue that occurs due to external load. Body pressure is one of the most critical factors causing pressure ulcers. This condition can be prevented by the use of external support devices such as mattresses, specialty beds, cushions, and overlays, collectively called pressure relief devices. The market for pressure ulcers is anticipated to witness greater demand during the coming years due to the growing incidence of pressure ulcers, the increasing count of the high-risk geriatric population, and the growing pool of bedridden patients. Furthermore, the easy availability of technologically advanced products supports the growth of this market. On the downside, the requirement of skilled personnel for handling and usage of these products and their high costs may hold back the growth of the global pressure relief devices market.

Low-tech devices also called static support devices, enjoy a higher preference in the market for the cost-effective management of pressure ulcers. The demand for these products is higher in long-term care facilities. Factors such as cost-effective prevention of ulcers, less need for operative and handling skills, and wide availability are the key drivers of this segment. Among the various types of low-tech devices, foam-based mattresses and overlays have the largest revenue share and will continue to dominate the market. Easy operability and high purchase volume contribute to the dominance of this sub-segment. It is expected that the demand for high-tech devices will be greater than that for low-tech devices during the forecast period. Improvements in healthcare infrastructure in emerging economies, ease through automation, and high demand for these systems in hospital settings are the major market drivers of this segment.

Geographically, the global pressure relief market is cumulative for North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

North America and Western Europe together occupy the largest revenue share in the global pressure relief devices market. Evolved healthcare infrastructure in the regions, greater awareness between patients and caregivers, higher affordability of high-end devices, and favorable reimbursements are the key drivers in these regional markets. Additionally, a higher incidence of pressure ulcers, a significant geriatric population, and a high demand from long-term care facilities further contribute to the dominance of the North American market. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market for pressure relief devices. The proliferation of medical tourism, increasing awareness about the prevention and management of pressure ulcers, and growing demand for home healthcare among geriatric patients all contribute to the fast growth of the Asia-Pacific market.
