Which Region is Projected to Offer Huge Opportunity for Specialty Medical Chair Manufacturers?

North America holds a dominant market share of over 44%. This can be attributed to increased geriatric population and the presence of a supportive reimbursement structure in the region. Rising prevalence of lifestyle-associated disorders is projected to drive regional market over the coming ten years.

An increase in the number of dental, ophthalmic, and ENT clinics across the U.S. and Canada is also pushing product demand. In addition, presence of key market players and advanced healthcare infrastructure along with high disposable income levels and vast lifestyle changes are contributing to overall growth of the regional market.

Why are Rehabilitation Chairs Popular in this Space?

Rehabilitation chairs hold the largest market share of 41%. Rehabilitation chairs include paediatric, bariatric, and geriatric chairs.

Paediatric chairs are used for bathing, positioning, and mobility purposes. Similar functions can be carried out using the bariatric and geriatric chairs, except the weight carrying capacity of these chairs may be higher. Growing geriatric population and rising cases of paralysis and spinal injuries are anticipated to drive the segment over the coming years.

As per WHO, in 2018, studies conducted in Africa stated that between 62.5% and 82.5% of people in need of rehabilitation services do not receive them, which is increasing their demand, and hence, is expected to drive the adoption of rehabilitation services and chairs.

A major benefit associated with these products is that they help patients achieve a comfortable posture, which gives doctors unrestricted access to various parts of the body. This equipment increases safety for both, caregivers and patients, and enhances patient relaxation.

The market for treatment chairs is expected to grow steadily during the analysis period.

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Specialty Medical Chair Sales?

The ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic crashed all markets and businesses around the world. Cancellation of all non-essential services and day-to-day commute services along with lockdowns imposed in a majority of countries has created an environment of ruckus and has adversely affected the world economy.

The pandemic has also majorly affected the healthcare sector. Healthcare infrastructure is focusing on bulk purchase of personal protective equipment (PPEs) and medical ventilators for effective patient treatment. Thus, as professionals are more focused on essential supplies, demand for specialty medical chairs has decreased significantly.

Competitive Landscape

Many local and international medical device manufacturers are investing in this market due to its high growth potential. The competitive milieu has resulted in improved treatment delivery, better products, and increased patient safety.

Most key players focus on mergers & acquisitions, new product development, collaborations & partnerships, and expansion strategies to strengthen their market position.
