Impact of macroeconomic factors on the patient positioning equipment market

The governments of different countries are opting for various measures of cost control in order to reduce the healthcare burden especially in developed economies. The focus of hospitals and other healthcare facilities has been changed towards a more value based system owing to global healthcare reforms. The shifting of the payment model, for example, the pay for performance has forced healthcare facility providers to invest more on better quality equipment and this has triggered the growth of the patient positioning equipment market.

With the increase in disposable income, the expenditure on healthcare is also increasing. People are able to pay more for healthcare, which in turn is increasing the revenue of hospitals and other healthcare facilities.

This has led to increased expenditure by hospitals and healthcare facilities on their services as well as equipment in order to ensure effective treatment to patients. Increasing healthcare expenditure is expected to spur the growth of the patient positioning equipment market. Several countries around the globe are spending more to improvise their healthcare infrastructure.

Opportunity analysis, key trends and growth drivers

  • The development of advanced positioning equipment that can auto-adjust the position of the patient can be a big opportunity for companies in the market. Development of advanced patient positioning systems will lead to increased efficiency of the diagnostic and surgical process
  • Development of robotic patient positioning systems is expected to revolutionize the market. Use of robotic couch top enables the delivery of more accurate and efficient radiation treatment to patients. Robotic patient positioning systems adjust the rotation of the patient in all directions and ensure an appropriate delivery of dose to the target area with high precision by preventing the surrounding tissues from getting affected
  • Manufacturers are focusing on the quality of the positioning system, using anti-rusted and anti-bacterial surface with ions of silver to ensure maximum hygiene and prevent cross contamination over surface. Even when surfaces made of these materials are scratched, their antibacterial efficacy continues to work – it will not wear away like coatings and other treatments as they exhibit interesting thermal and mechanical properties, and high chemical resistance, which is desirable in medical technology
  • Integrated patient positioning is being developed to increase the efficiency of diagnostic system and radiation therapy. Development of integrated patient positioning systems will reduce the reliability on additional accessories along with increasing its effectiveness
