The global patient positioning devices market is anticipated to grow at a healthy rate, according to a MarketWatch report. The patient’s position can have a big impact on the outcome of surgery. Minor changes in positioning can have negative consequences, such as blood pressure drops or spikes, breathing issues, and cardiac problems.
In dental and medical instruments, patient positioning devices are important, especially for radiotherapy and imaging. The rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and kidney disorders, which necessitate diagnostics and surgeries, is propelling the global patient positioning devices market forward. According to a 2016 CDC report, the number of cancer cases reached about 2 million per year by 2020. Further, by 2030, it is projected that there would be about 26 million new cancer cases and 17 million cancer deaths per year.
According to statistics from the National Council on Aging, 80 percent of adults aged 65 and older have at least one chronic disease, with 68 percent having two or more. Chronic diseases affect nearly 133 million people in the United States, accounting for more than 40% of the total population, according to National Health Council data from 2014. By 2020, it reached 157 million people, with 81 million of them having multiple conditions. Furthermore, the market is expected to grow as more capital is invested in health care infrastructure to install technologically advanced equipment and devices in hospitals and clinics. In order to improve the quality of health infrastructure and address health service capacity gaps, the health care sector in developing economies has seen significant growth over the last decade.
