Chapter 19 – Research Methodology

This chapter will help readers understand the research methodology followed to obtain various conclusions and important qualitative & quantitative information about the pressure relief devices market.

Increasing incidence of ulcers have led to the adoption of pressure relief devices for the prevention of ulcers. Pressure relief devices are used for the welfare of patients dealing with various lifestyle-related conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and obesity. A study conducted by Hill-Rom clearly concluded that the number of patients with pressure ulcers that are hospital-acquired is on a rise due to the longer stay of patients in the hospitals than expected.

The extended stay of bed-ridden patients due to several medical conditions such as cancer, multiple bone fractures and other severe diseases results in pressure ulcers, which further increases the adoption of pressure relief devices. This has tremendously accelerated the demand for pressure ulcer devices globally from medical practitioners and end users.

Rise in Geriatric Population and Obesity

Rise in geriatric population and the prevalence of obesity related diseases are leading to an increase in the demand for pressure ulcer devices. For Instance, as per studies conducted in North America, the U.S. population aged 65 years and above is anticipated to more than double from 46 million to 98 million by 2060.

According to the ‘Population Reference Bureau’ in 2009-2012, the U.S. obesity rate among older adults increased rapidly, accounting for approximately 40% of people aged between 65 and 75 years. This rise in the elderly population worldwide is expected to contribute to the rise in the demand for pressure relief devices due to several restricted movement cases. The obese population facing bed-ridden situations is highly dependent on pressure relief devices to prevent other fatal conditions.

Increased Demand for Healthcare Infrastructure

The healthcare infrastructure around the world has been consistently evolving and improving. With rapid expansion of healthcare infrastructure, the demand for advanced medical devices, such as pressure relief devices has also been increasing to cater to the demand from pressure ulcer patients. Increasing third party investments and public-private partnerships (PPP) in medical infrastructure are also boosting the growth of the medical industry and subsequently driving the pressure relief devices market.

The increasing demand for preventive measures and healthcare infrastructure propels the demand for pressure relief devices. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2013, private social insurance represented 51.8% of total healthcare spending in Brazil. Hospitals and clinics are building up systems to pick up scale efficiencies.

Suppliers are seeking authorizing concurrences with doctor's facilities that focus on perfection for second suppositions in high cost surgical methodology. The emphasis on populace wellbeing administration is expanding at a sustainable rate. Improved healthcare spending and growing healthcare infrastructure are expected to fuel the market growth for pressure relief devices over the forecast period.

Strategic Collaborations for Sales to Push Market Growth of Pressure Relief Devices

Global players in the pressure relief devices market are focusing on collaboration and partnership activities with players from around the globe to provide sales and after sales services effectively across regions. For instance, in 2016, Hill-Rom and Haldor Advanced Technologies ltd. entered into an exclusive global distribution partnership to sell Haldor's Orlocate pressure relief device product range.

Such strategic activities boost the brand image of pressure relief devices, which is expected to propel market growth for pressure relief devices during the forecast period.

Reimbursement Scenario and High Cost Sale

Pressure relief devices have no reimbursement for Stage III and IV pressure ulcers in North America. Reimbursement is one of the crucial factors expected to hinder the market growth for pressure relief devices and thus, has been taken into consideration for reasoning out the high costs of pressure relief devices. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published in 2012 that it would not provide reimbursement for hospital-acquired stage III and IV pressure ulcers.

Moreover, private insurers are adopting these reimbursement restrictions for pressure ulcer treatment. The low cost of rental pressure relief devices in regions such as Latin America might hamper the sales of pressure relief devices as the cost of pressure relief devices is comparatively higher than that of rental pressure relief devices, which is likely to hamper the growth the pressure relief devices market over the forecast period.

The stringent rules and regulations by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Commission for new product launches in the pressure relief devices market are also expected to obstruct the market growth for pressure relief devices.
