Medical Lifting Slings Market Overview:

The global medical lifting sling market size was valued at $560.2 million in 2020, and is estimated to reach $1,412.4 million by 2030, growing a CAGR of 9.6% from 2021 to 2030. The medical lifting slings are patient lifting medical devices that ensure safe lifting of patients who are obese, disabled, or weak. There are various types of patient slings available for easy, safe, and comfortable transfer of patients. Bariatric patients are lifted and transferred from beds to wheelchairs or vice versa through bariatric slings, which decrease stress on caregivers and reduce number of nursing staff required to move a patient.

Growth of the global medical lifting slings market is majorly driven by increase in prevalence of neuromuscular disorder diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and spinal muscular atrophy; increase in incidences of muscular disorder; rise in demand for universal slings; increase in funding from private & government organizations for development of various healthcare sectors; and advancements in technologies in the field of medical lifting slings. According to the National Organization for rare disorder, it was observed that approximately 1 in 3500 male are diagnosed with duchenne muscular dystrophy. The duchenne muscular dystrophy is characterized by wasting of muscles of pelvic area followed by shoulder muscle.

Furthermore, surge in adoption of various medical lifting slings by geriatric and bariatric population is anticipated to fuel growth of the infection disease diagnostic market. According to the United Nation, it was reported that number of geriatric populations are projected to get double to 1.5 billion in 2050. Thus, rise in geriatric population fuels the market growth, owing to the fact that aged individuals are more susceptible to muscular disabilities. The geriatric population needs more patient-centric healthcare facilities, which further propels demand for home care service and boosts growth of the market. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, in 2020, it was reported that around 1 in 5 men and 1 in 3 women above the age of 50 years experience osteoporotic fractures in their lifetime. Likewise, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2021, it was reported that approximately 2.8 million population are dying every year due to overweight.

In addition, increase in number of advanced home care facilities and surge in demand for patient lifting propel growth of the market. For instance, in June 2020, the Mayo Clinic, a non-profit American academic medical center, announced the launch of advanced care at home, which aims to provide comprehensive, innovative, and complex care to patients. Moreover, in November 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid services (CMC) announced comprehensive strategy to increase capacity of America healthcare system and provide care to patient outside a traditional hospital. 

Technological advancements in manufacturing of medical slings and rise in healthcare spending propel growth of the market. For instance, Guldmann, announced launch of new sling strap having smart loop technology. The slings are designed to enhance comfort and reduce shearing forces. Caregivers apply less efforts while removing sling straps from patients. However, lack of skilled technicians is expected to restrict the market growth during the forecast period.
