Market Report Description

The Global Specialty Medical Chairs Market size is expected to reach $6.3 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 8.8% CAGR during the forecast period.

Specialty medical chairs are chairs that are designed to give patients and healthcare practitioners more flexibility and comfort during surgical procedures. These chairs are used for examinations, treatments, and rehabilitation and they are often operated manually or with batteries. Pediatric, bariatric, and geriatric chairs are some of the most often used specialist medical chairs. Birthing, mammography, dialysis, diagnosis, and treatment of illnesses are all done on these chairs. They are typically fitted with swing-away arms, height-adjustable sitting systems, and easy-to-clean surfaces, as well as being extremely cost-effective, robust, and low-maintenance.

These gadgets are either manually controlled or battery operated. They're employed in ambulatory surgical centers, clinics, hospitals, and a variety of other settings. Examination chairs (birthing chairs, cardiac chairs, blood drawing chairs, dialysis chairs, mammography chairs), treatment chairs (ophthalmic chairs, ENT (ear, nose, and throat) chairs, dental chairs, and other surgical chairs), and rehabilitation chairs are just a few examples of specialty medical chairs (geriatric chair, pediatric chair, bariatric chair, toilet chair). A birthing chair is a gadget that assists a woman in maintaining a physiological upright position while giving birth. A cardiac chair is a sort of medical chair that aids in the recovery of people recovering from heart surgery or respiratory illnesses. For a variety of medical purposes, the blood drawing chair is used to take blood samples. All other specialist chairs, like this one, have their own function and significance.

As the older population grows, so will the demand for specialty medical chairs. Product demand will be boosted as the target population grows. Furthermore, the emergence of technologically improved and fully automated medical chairs is expected to provide attractive growth possibilities for the market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic had an impact on a variety of sectors around the world. The specialty medical chairs supply chain has been affected by stay-at-home requirements, transit bans, and a labor shortage. In the US, the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act) added Section 506J to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) in 2020, giving the FDA the authority to prevent or mitigate negative public health consequences of medical device supply chain disruptions during public health emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to a shortage of medical gadgets, the COVID-19 pandemic initially impacted the transport chair business. The demand for transport chairs and other mobility equipment in hospitals and healthcare facilities has increased as the number of patients has increased.

Market Growth Factors

Growing Geriatric Population Across the World

One of the key elements driving product adoption is the growing geriatric population. According to the WHO, the global elder population is anticipated to nearly treble to 2.1 billion people between 2025 and 2050. 80 percent of these people will be living in low- and middle-income countries. The Asia Pacific region's population is rapidly aging, according to the World Bank. In 2010, East Asia and the Pacific had a population of over 211 million persons aged 65 and up. In East Asia, the senior population is predicted to increase by 22% per five years. This demonstrates the potential for geriatric chairs to be in high demand in the coming years.

Growing reimbursement Policies and Rising Government Health Expenditure

In developed countries, increasing reimbursement policies and supporting regulatory frameworks are also driving market expansion. In the United States, for example, Medicare regulations reimburse for equipment such as wheelchairs, recliners, and other such items. Furthermore, prominent market participants are providing customized products to fulfill the needs of doctors and patients. Market participants should expect lucrative prospects as demand for innovative, easy-to-use goods with enhanced features grows. According to the latest OECD forecasts, the average health expenditure increase will be approximately 3.3 percent in 2019, while health spending as a percentage of GDP will be around 8.8 percent, which is similar to recent years.

Market Restraining Factors

Lack of Skilled Healthcare Workers

Health professionals are essential for expanding health service coverage and attaining the right to the highest possible standard of health; their availability, accessibility, acceptability, and quality are all dependent on them. By 2030, WHO anticipates that 18 million health workers would be needed, largely in low- and lower-middle-income countries. However, countries at all stages of socioeconomic development face challenges in terms of workforce employment, education, deployment, retention, and performance. Continuous shortages are exacerbated by chronic underinvestment in health worker education and training in some countries, as well as a mismatch between education and employment plans in relation to health systems and population demands.

Product Outlook

Based on Product, the market is segmented into Rehabilitation (Geriatric, Bariatric, Pediatric, and Others), Treatment (Dental, Ophthalmic, ENT, and Others), and Examination (Dialysis, Blood Drawing, Mammography, Cardiac, and Birthing). The rehabilitation segment acquired the highest revenue share in the specialty medical chairs market in 2021. Rehabilitation chairs include bariatric, pediatric, and geriatric seats. Pediatric chairs are among the items used for bathing, positioning, and movement. The bariatric and geriatric chairs can perform similar activities, with the exception that the weight and carrying capacity of these chairs may be larger.
