Global Medical Lifting Slings Market Drivers
Key players are constantly focused on developing new products of medical lifting slings, which is expected to drive the global medical lifting market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in July 2018, HoverTech International release a new sling, HoverSling Repositioning Sheet. It is applicable for performing all types of transfers such as vertical transfers, lateral transfer, and for repositioning. It consists sling lift and an air-assisted transfer device based on HoverMatt air-assisted technology.
Furthermore, in January 2019, Silvalea Ltd. introduced a transfer sling, Silva Travel Lite. It can be used for in-situ as well as wet environments. It is designed in a dual way, i.e., it is used as a manual transfer sling for places where hoists are not available such as at airports, cars, or any public transportation, and it is used as a hoist slings for places such as changing rooms. Such product launches are expected to impel the global medical lifting slings market growth.
Furthermore, key players are also actively participating in events and conferences related to medical lifting slings, which is expected to drive the global medical lifting slings market growth. For instance, in November 2018, NAUSICAA Medical attended an exhibition, MEDICA, which was held in Du?sseldorf, Germany, wherein it showcased all the products. Hence, such events widen the exposure of emerging technology in medical lifting slings and are expected to accelerate the global medical lifting slings market growth.
Global Medical Lifting Slings Market Regional Analysis
North America is expected to hold dominant position in global medical lifting slings market, owing to increasing medical problems in obese people among adults and youths. Obese people tend to suffer from chronic conditions such as musculoskeletal problems. According to the National Centre for Health Statistics 2015-2016 data, prevalence of obesity in U.S. was around 39.8% in adults and 18.5% in youth. According to the same source, it was recorded that obesity among middle aged adults was higher than younger adults, prevalence being 42.8% and 35.7% respectively. Hence, increase in prevalence of obese people may lead to higher adoption of sling lifts thereby supporting the global medical lifting slings market growth.
Global Medical Lifting Slings Market Restraints
Presence of alternative to the sling lifts may hamper the global medical lifting slings market growth. For instance, Air Cradle, a patient transfer system designed by a researcher, which can be used in replacement of hoists and slings. It works on the basis of low air pressure system. Furthermore, improper handling of slings may lead to accidents and reusable slings possess a threat of nosocomial infection. Hence, this factor is expected to restrict the global medical lifting slings market growth.
