Medical trolleys are developed to improve the efficiency of support teams in hospitals or ambulatory surgical centers. Nowadays, a majority of hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers are demanding medical trolleys to improve their medical services. Medical trolleys have a simple structure - a polished tray placed at the top and the wheels placed at the bottom. The wheels of the medical trolleys enable mobility within the hospital or any other medical facility. The height of a medical trolley can be adjusted according to the patient’s needs. Most medical trolleys are made up of stainless steel material. These trolleys are available in different sizes, and all end-user facilities order them according to their needs. Medical trolleys are mostly used to shift oxygen cylinders to the operation theaters. Some medical trolleys are designed according to the specific needs of a hospital. The specially designed product may include an extra bowl and bucket attached to the medical trolley. Some specifically designed medical trolleys contain several racks and shelves for storing various products that need to be distributed to patients.
The primary factors driving the growth of the medical trolleys market are rising healthcare expenditure and increased spending by hospitals to improve their medical facilities. Moreover, the increasing number of hospital admissions due to a rise in the number of chronic diseases is expected to fuel the growth of the medical trolleys market over the forecast period. Additionally, the high number of geriatric population being admitted to end user facilities is also responsible for the robust growth of the medical trolleys market. Leading manufacturers are focusing on manufacturing improved and specialized versions of medical trolleys, which will also help increase traction of the medical trolleys market. On the other hand, the lack of funding by hospital managements for the procurement of secondary tools needed by hospital professionals will deter the growth of the medical trolleys market. The lack of awareness among people about specialized medical trolleys provided by key manufacturers is also expected to be responsible for the sluggish growth of the medical trolleys market over the forecast period.
