Patient positioning devices are developed to help anesthesia staff position and reposition a patient optimally during a surgical procedure while also providing a means of maintaining the comfort and satisfaction of the patient. It is also used in the diagnostic process as it is continuously adjustable, latex-free and easy to use.

Market Dynamics

The global patient positioning devices market growth is driven by technological advancements, an increasingly aging population, a rising number of surgeries, and rising patient healthcare expenditure on diagnostic procedures.

Rising benefits of patient positioning devices for surgery drive the market growth     

As per the Sunmedica organization, the greatest benefits of patient positioning devices include special access to the target area during surgery and surgical ease. Also, preventing the risks and injuries of improper positionings, such as circulatory problems, respiratory issues, pressure ulcers, and neurological damage. Patients will have a more proper posture, which can lessen pressure and post-operative pain for those under anesthesia. Lowering pressure will bring meaningful benefits, such as shorter hospital stays, lower healthcare costs associated with pressure ulcers, and less discomfort for the patient. Mainly, outcomes within the operating room are also improved because of these devices. These devices are meant to give the surgeon more accuracy when completing an operation and save time for the healthcare workers inside an operating room.

In addition, the market players are adopting the market strategies such as collaboration or product launches. For instance, in February 2022, Mireye launched its intelligent imaging technology that automates the patient positioning process for X-ray examinations. Also, in September 2021, Mizuho OSI acquired the Air Barrier System (ABS) from Nimbic Systems, Inc. The product portfolio, including Air Barrier System, is an infection control device employed in Hip and Spine surgery that helps to prevent infection on the surgical site from pathogens and airborne particulates during surgery. Moreover, in March 2022, C-RAD agreed to supply its cutting-edge SGRT solution to a newly built proton therapy center in the United States. The contract includes multiple systems and a multiyear service agreement.

The difficulties with patient positioning devices products will hamper the growth of the market  

However, different factors play a role in risk during a patient procedure due to positioning. Intrinsic and extrinsic factors can contribute to the risk of developing pressure sores. Extrinsic factors include pressure intensity and duration and the overall effects of anesthesia. Intrinsic factors can include the patient's overall health, preexisting conditions such as respiratory or circulatory disorders, diabetes mellitus, anemia, malnutrition, advanced age, and body size. Additionally, the patient's musculoskeletal system may be subjected to stress during patient positioning. These factors are limiting the market growth.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The pandemic has also considerably affected the world market for patient positioning devices. According to Stanford Medicine researchers report, in March 2020, COVID-19 shutdown and nonurgent surgery rates declined. Still, withinmonths they bounced back and continued at pre-pandemic levels, even as coronavirus infections were high during the fall and winter of 2020. As predicted, the researchers found a 48% decline in surgical volume during the seven weeks after March, when the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recommended that hospitals minimize, postpone or cancel elective surgeries. Moreover, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and other major surgical specialty societies suggested minimizing, postponing, or canceling elective surgical procedures in mid-March and published guidelines for triaging elective procedures by surgical specialty. As the number of surgery decreased, the demand for patient positioning equipment decreased during the pandemic.

In 2022, the situation is recovering from COVID-19 the almost every patient can access healthcare facilities and take regular treatment. The rising surgery and increasing awareness of the advantages of patient positioning led to market growth worldwide. 

Segment Analysis

The diagnostic center’s segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029)        

The diagnostic center's segment accounts for the largest market share. As per the Retail Research Report 2021, The diagnostic industry has emerged as an attractive play in the growing healthcare sector and is one of the fastest-growing service segments in the world. It is largely driven by an increase in healthcare spending by the aging population, rising income levels, awareness for preventive testing, advanced healthcare diagnostic tests offerings, and central government's healthcare measures.

In addition, in diagnostic centers provide services, including pathology testing or in-vitro diagnosis, imaging diagnosis or radiology, wellness and preventive, and diagnostic services. The recent trend is that diagnostic centers focus on preventive and wellness services. Organized players are increasingly targeting healthy individuals with sedentary lifestyles, who are more prone to lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular ailments and diabetes. An emerging trend of precision medicine and a focus on preventive care and direct-to-customer diagnostic services are expected to drive growth in the diagnostics arena. The rising number of diagnostic centers leads to increasing demand for patient positioning devices to provide better services.

Geographical Analysis

North America region holds the largest market share of the global Patient Positioning Devices market

North America dominates the market for Patient Positioning Devices and is expected to show a similar trend over the forecast period.
