Europe Sales Analysis of Patient Positioning Systems (2017-2021) Vs. Market Estimations (2022-2032)

Patient positioning systems are devices meant to handle patients and keep them in a required position during surgeries and other medical procedures. These systems are used for radiation therapy, cancer therapy, precision therapy, etc. One of the major advantages of patient positioning systems is that they aid in reducing pain and stimulate the healing process.

Rising geriatric population, increasing prevalence of non-communicable diseases, and rising investments to upgrade healthcare facilities are likely to drive market growth over the forecast period.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Use of patient positioning systems to keep them in a comfortable position at the time of surgeries will lead to enhanced adoption of the patient positioning systems in the short term.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Rise in chronic diseases in Europe, emerging as the leading cause of mortality, likely to support product demand in the medium term.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Rising investments in innovation and product development to fuel long-term market growth.

The European market for patient positioning systems witnessed 3% CAGR during the 2017-2021 historical period. As per the detailed analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to expand at 4.5% CAGR across the forecast years (2022-2032).

What is Driving the Need for Patient Positioning Systems in the European Market?

“Rising Prevalence of Chronic Diseases and Treatment Need across Europe”

Chronic diseases are the leading cause of mortality in Europe and represent nearly 77% of the total disease burden and approximately 86% of deaths. The prevalence of chronic diseases rises with age. Approximately 56% of men and 47% of women aged 80 and above are likely to report multiple chronic diseases on an average in EU countries.

High prevalence of chronic diseases is likely to lead to a greater number of surgeries to be performed. Maintaining a proper patient position at the time of surgery becomes a necessity to provide comfort. Application of patient positioning systems is therefore likely to grow over the coming years in Europe.

“Commissioning of Robotic Patient Positioning Units Equipped with Integrated Tracking Systems”

The commissioning of robotic patient positioning systems has become crucial these days to determine the positioning accuracy of PPS. Robotic patient motion management is designed to integrate with Linac pedestals and IGRT solutions to position patients appropriately and provide more accurate treatment. These robotic patient positioning systems correct misalignments and are a fast and flexible, automated patient set-up that saves time and cost during therapy.

The intuitive user interface of iGUIDE software supports accurate positioning, controls the robotic couchtop, and validates the table position. It also provides for table movement and proper patient positioning. As such, robotic patient positioning systems will provide additional demand growth in the European market over the coming years.

Which Factors are Preventing the Market from Reaching its Full Growth Potential?

“Characteristic Challenges of Patient Positioning - A Market Growth Hurdle”

With a bulk of advantages of patient positioning systems, they also have some characteristic challenges, which, in turn, may hamper market growth to some extent. For instance, patient positioning during a procedure may make it hard to manage cardio-respiratory emergencies, wherein, respiratory or cardiovascular functions may be compromised along with increased risk from injuries. Other risks include ocular complications and also restricting instrument movements.

Other prominent challenges and risks include the disconnection of pulse oximetry, tracheal tubes, and arterial lines resulting in desaturation, hypoventilation, etc. In addition, elderly patients with vascular pathologies and cervical spine deformities are usually at greater risk.

Thus, the above-mentioned problematic factors are likely to hamper market growth over the years to some extent.
