The Patient Handling Equipment Market is segmented by product, by type of care, by end user and by accessories. The driving factors of the Patient Handling Equipment Market include growing population size of the elderly, rising incidences of unhealthy lifestyle leading to increase in the number of individuals with disabilities, and technological developments.

Based on type of care, the Patient Handling Equipment Market is further segmented into bariatric care, fall prevention, critical care, wound care and others such as acute care and & long term care. Wound care is expected to account for the largest share in 2014, followed by fall prevention and critical care.

The care givers such as the nurses are at high risk for development of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs). The use of patient handling equipment has resulted in decrease in the WMSDs which has boosted the market growth.

The Patient Handling Equipment Market by end users is segmented into, home care, hospitals, elderly care homes and others (emergency medical services, long-term acute care, trauma centers and nursing homes).

Geographic analysis reveals that Europe occupied the largest share in 2014. However, the growth of this region is expected to be lower than North America in the forecast period. The factors restraining the European market growth are saturation of the market thus rendering less scope for expansion of the market.

North America will account for the second largest market share in 2014. The North American region will grow at a high growth rate which can be attributed to the presence of huge market scope for expansion. Also North America has rising aging population and lifestyle diseases that are further adding to the overall prevalence of disabilities which will further add to the growth of the market. Asia-Pacific region will grow with the healthy CAGR in forecast period. High population base and enhanced purchasing power of the middle class will be the major driving force of this market. Moreover, the economic instability in the western countries has been the driving force for the companies to focus on the APAC region in order to meet their revenue targets.
