Increasing prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders and increasing number of orthopedic surgeries is expected to drive growth of the Global Single Use Disposable Patient Positioning Products Market.
Increasing prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders is expected to lead to high demand for single use disposable patient positioning products over the forecast period. For instance, the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons’ (AAOS) report of March 2016 estimated that around 126.6 million people in the U.S. (one in two adults) are affected by a musculoskeletal condition.
Single use disposable patient positioning market is expected to witness further growth owing to an increasing number of orthopedic surgeries. For instance, according to the Major Orthopedic Surgery report of 2011, 5.3 million orthopedic surgeries were carried out in seven major countries (U.S., Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and U.K.) in 2010 and the number is projected to increase to around 6.6 million in 2020 due to the aging population.
Global Single Use Disposable Patient Positioning Products Market - Restraints
Challenges in the global single use disposable patient positioning products market include the increasing use of reusable gel patient positioning products which are an alternative to disposable patient positioning products. This is a major factor that is expected to hinder growth of the market over the forecast period. Reusable gel patient positioners provide the same protection as foam patient positioners. Furthermore, reusable products reduce reoccurring costs for hospitals, and with correct cleaning, reusable products can negate any risk of contamination. For instance, Cardinal Health offers various reusable gel patient positioning products under the brand Oasis silicone gel positioners. These non-slip gel positioners are latex-free and can be heated or cooled without adverse effects (10° F to 120° F). There is also a lightweight option for gel positioning.
Global Single Use Disposable Patient Positioning Products Market - Regional Insights
On the basis of region, the global single use disposable patient positioning products market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa. North America is expected to hold a dominant position in the global single use disposable patient positioning products market during the forecast period, owing to increasing strategic acquisitions by key players. For instance, in July 2017, Cardinal Health, Inc. announced the acquisition of Medtronic's Patient Care, Deep Vein Thrombosis, and Nutritional Insufficiency business for US$ 6.1 billion. The acquisition further expanded the product portfolio of Cardinal Health’s medical segment.
Asia Pacific is expected to foresee a rapid growth in the global single use disposable patient positioning products market in the forecast period, owing to increasing prevalence of sports injuries. Products such as knee pads, foot positioners, elbow and arm positioners, shoulder positioners, and others are extensively used to treat sports-related injuries. For instance, according to the 2014 report from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), there were 36,000 sports injury hospitalizations in 2012-2013, which included people aged 15 and above.
