Sales Analysis of Repositioning and Offloading Devices from 2016 to 2020 Vs Market Projections for 2021 to 2031
Repositioning and offloading device consumption in terms of CAGR from 2016 to 2020 has been observed at 3.7%, wherein, wheelchairs had the highest market share in terms of revenue at around 67.4% in the year 2020.
Incidence of pressure ulcers is increasing in the elderly population living with disabilities. Patients with spinal cord injuries are at the highest risk (25–66%) of developing a pressure ulcer due to the combination of immobility and decreased sensation.
Pressure ulcers can be prevented by determining those who are most at risk and implementing effective prevention strategies. Repositioning is one of the powerful yet practical preventative measures that are within the domain, power and control of all healthcare professionals.
Thus, growing number of surgeries and incidence of skin lesions and pressure ulcers has surged demand for repositioning and offloading devices.
According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistics Center, in the U.S. annual incidence of spinal cord injury is approximately 54 cases per one million people in the population size of 329 million people, or about 17,810 new spinal cord injury cases each year.
Over the forecast period of 2021-2031, the market is expected to expand at 5.8% CAGR.

What are the Main Restraining Factors for Repositioning and Offloading Device Suppliers?
High cost of repositioning and offloading devices is the major restraining factor of this market. For example, powered wheelchairs are costly due to the use of specialized and automated controls.
The need to use high-quality materials for manufacturing incurs additional costs, which limits adoption of the equipment. Hence, high costs of powered wheelchairs and powered scooters are expected to hamper market growth.
Additionally, product recalls and lack of adequate training and assistance to handle bariatric patients are some of the factors that are expected to hamper market growth to some extent.
What Makes the U.S. a Large Market for Repositioning and Offloading Devices?
The U.S. dominated the region of North America with a total market share of 81.4%, and is projected to see high growth throughout the forecast period. There is increased government initiatives that aim to serve high-quality care facilities to the growing population by fundings and investments.
Moreover, manufacturers in the country are also actively involved in carrying out strategies that benefit them to reach out to a higher patient number of people.
For instance, in July 2017, National Seating & Mobility (NSM), a supplier of Complex Rehab Technology Solutions, and WHILL, Inc., announced a strategic alliance for the nationwide delivery of WHILL's next-generation mobility systems. NSM will sell WHILL, Inc.'s new FDA-cleared Model M power wheelchair in the United States under this agreement.
Such initiatives along with growing developments in the country are key reasons for the dominance of the U.S. in the global market.
How Lucrative is the U.K. Market for Repositioning and Offloading Device Producers?
The U.K. holds a significant position in the region of Europe, with a market of US$ 357.9 Mn in 2021 and a higher growth rate of 4.8%.
In the U.K., rising obese population and growing preference for bariatric surgeries have influenced repositioning and offloading device demand. Obesity is thought to affect around 1 in 3 U.K. adults. Around 28% of adults in England are obese and a further 36% are overweight.
Thus, growing bariatric surgeries will be needed due to rising incidence of pressure ulcers.
What is the Market Scenario of Repositioning and Offloading Devices in Germany?
Germany leads the European repositioning and offloading devices market and will exhibit growth of 5.7% during the forecasted period. The factor contributing to growth is increasing number of bariatric patients in the country.
Rapid growth in the obese population is leading to high demand for obesity treatments. The number of bariatric surgeries in Germany is growing constantly, and this has generated demand for repositioning and offloading products to minimize the incidence of pressure ulcers.
According to OECD data, one in four adults is obese in Germany. Overweight accounted for 10.7% of healthcare expenditure, which is one of the largest rates among all the countries analyzed. In addition, Germans live on average 2.6 years less due to being overweight. Thus, growing obese population in Germany will surge demand for repositioning and offloading systems.
Why is China an Emerging Market for Repositioning and Offloading Devices?
China dominates the East Asia market with 49.3% share and is expected to grow rapidly over the coming years.
The country has one of the highest rates of road accidents in the world, with many people being injured as a result. After India, China has the world's second-largest disabled population.
Besides, a strong medical device industry that provides products at a much cheaper rate compared to other countries makes China the most attractive market in Asia. Moreover, presence of leading medical device manufacturers in the country projects significant growth for the repositioning and offloading devices industry.
Why is Demand for Wheelchairs High across Regions?
Wheelchairs accounted for the largest market share of more than 64% in the year 2020, owing to high adoption of manual as well as powered wheelchairs for patient positioning.
Considerable rise in the prevalence of injuries and related disabilities is largely due to the rapidly growing aged population. The elderly population is likely to suffer from growing-age mobility disorders, and hence, are considered as the major target population for wheelchairs.
Why Do Hospitals Project High Growth in the Repositioning and Offloading Devices Space?
In the absence of patients having the ability to reposition, they require assistance. Patients are placed in or adopt several body positions, including supine, degree of tilt, sitting or walking, which can be handled by professionals or well-trained personnel.
Hospitals are the main care centers with the presence of assisted staff and well–trained professionals that assist patient repositioning. Products such as pressure relief mattress, medical lifting slings, and other patient handling equipment see higher demand at hospitals.
Thus, large patient pool at hospitals gave the segment a high revenue share of more than 28% in 2020.
How Has COVID-19 Impacted Demand for Repositioning and Offloading Devices?
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced COVID-19 as a world health emergency in January 2020. The advent of COVID-19 has projected a significant impact on the demand for repositioning and offloading devices.
One of the major issues was related to the supply gap owing to the adoption of less number of surgeries in hospitals. However, lack of labor, halt on transportation, and disruption in the supply chain, has significantly compressed the device availability.
During the pandemic, demand for disposable products such as disposable turn sheets increased to avoid the spread of infection. Lack of availability of repositioning and offloading products during the COVID-19 outbreak has led the manufacturers to expand their sales through online sales channels with discount offerings.
Thus, during the COVID-19 pandemic, consumer preference for online spending projected a significant impact on repositioning and offloading device sales in 2020
Repositioning and offloading device manufacturers are focused on strengthening their market presence through entering into strategic collaborations and agreements. With the development of new platforms, companies are strengthening their product portfolios and expanding their presence across countries.
Manufacturers are focusing on the introducing a variety of advanced technological products and product development to meet every budget of end users and their demands effectively. Thus, key players are focusing on product reach through product launches and are trying to make their products available across middle- and low-income countries.
- For instance, In October 2020, Permobil launched the ROHO Hybrid Select cushion to demonstrate its continued commitment to seating and positioning innovation. This is the first new cushion that brings foam and air technology together with optional offloading to benefit wheelchair users.
